22 eCommerce Beauty Statistics & Trends

eCommerce Beauty Statistics
Last updated on June 11th, 2022 by Stefanie Parks

The COVID-19 pandemic saw an enormous uptick in eCommerce sales. Beauty and skin care were eCommerce sectors that prospered. Self care became more important than ever, even when people were stuck at home. People couldn’t get the spa treatments that they were used to and they began paying closer attention than ever to their appearance on their many Zoom calls. Since the beauty sector has been experiencing a boom in eCommerce sales, I wanted to highlight beauty sales statistics to showcase growth, plus new trends to look for.

My Authority on eCommerce Beauty

I started DermWarehouse, one of the largest Dermatologist owned and operated eCommerce sites. During 2020, we saw our revenue jump from $2 million annually to over $5 million [view success story]. Our eCommerce conversion rate during 2020 was up nearly 30%.

In addition to founding DermWarehouse, I also helped my brother start this digital marketing agency, The Media Captain and have spent a lot of time working with many different eCommerce businesses in addition to my own. More recently, I also launched my own skincare line, Park Perfection.

I’m heavily entrenched in the eCommerce beauty space. These eCommerce beauty statistics and trends will get you excited about this amazing industry.
