The cosmetics and beauty industry is worth an estimated $603 billion globally and predicted to rise to a whopping $758.4 billion by 2025.
So, what does that tell us?
Clearly, this is a lucrative niche. But, at the same time, if you’re an ecommerce seller looking to either invest in this market or keen to set up an online store as a sideline, your cosmetics and beauty products need to stand out from the crowd.
This means ensuring your site looks attractive, showcases your gorgeous products, and successfully engages potential customers.
If you don't have the coding or web design know-how to create a custom theme and your eCommerce platform of choice is WooCommerce, never fear. There are plenty of customizable WooCommerce themes that are explicitly designed for the beauty industry.
One such option is Cosmetro.
Cosmetro is one of the most popular WooCommerce themes for the cosmetics niche and capitalizes on the Elementor Page Builder.
