Asos & Superdrug Prioritise Inclusive Beauty

ASOS Face + Body

Gender-fluidity is continuing to shape product development and marketing messages within the beauty industry. British retailers Superdrug and Asos are currently championing this movement with an inclusive pop-up shop and YouTube content that reflects modern consumer outlooks on gender identity and authenticity. 

  • Beauty Without Bias: Following the success of its LGBTQ+ targeted campaign Beauty Without Bias, Superdrug has opened a colour cosmetics pop-up in London dedicated to inclusivity, which runs until September 10.

    It collaborated with advocates and beauty bloggers who embody the ethos that make-up is for everyone, such as British trans-activist Charlie Craggs. Each influencer selected 10 products from Superdrug’s exclusive collections – spotlighting the diversity that already exists within its offering.

    The launch capitalises on the rise of the genderless beauty category – 27% of British men would buy cosmetics if they were branded as gender neutral (Future Thinking, 2018). It also demonstrates Superdrug’s ability to tap into rapidly developing trends. In Spring 2018, it opened a vegan pop-up due to rising demand for clean beauty products.
