Some of the notable players in the Nigerian cosmetics and beauty care

products include Procter and Gamble, Unilever, PZ Cussons, House of Tara


International, Soulmate Industries Ltd, etc. However, there is a need to grow
the industry as the nation looks inwards to generate additional revenue from
the non-oil sector.

Nigerias cosmetic and beauty care products are largely imported.


Imports from foreign countries currently account for 70% of the domestic
market leaving Nigerian producers with just a 30% share. An improvement in
the ability of local manufacturers to compete against imported products will
result in income and employment growth.
