New CPG beauty and personal care pacesetting products are meeting the challenges of unprecedented times, according to IRI. US CPG grew 2.6% over IRI measured channels in 2021 as the industry cooled from its mid-pandemic growth of 10.7% in 2020. Venture-backed indie The Honey Pot Company ranked 14 on the non-food list, proving the power of scrappy start-ups to capture market share.

For 27 years, IRI has analyzed the top food and non-food CPG brand launches, providing a view into what's resonating with consumers while surfacing CPG trends to watch. The latest report represents 2021 new product launches—BeautyMatter did an edit of beauty and personal care products that made the cut.

"This year's New Product Pacesetters successfully ran the gauntlet of powering through a pandemic that first caused people to hunker down at home, and then start socializing in public again, only to hunker down again late in the year," said Joan Driggs, Vice President, Content and Thought Leadership, IRI. "COVID-19 generated trends that both helped and hindered growth trajectories. In-home stockups eased from 2020 levels, while concurrently, interest in new products representing beverages, frozen convenience foods, household goods and self-care resulted in healthy growth."
