The growing demand for hair care and skin is the primary factor responsible for the global allantoin market growth. Allantoin is in the form of a white powder. It has been produced by the oxidation of uric acid and the maximum excretory product of purine degradation in most vertebrates. Allantoin is a nitrogenous compound with the chemical formula C4H6N4O3. Moreover, it is found in the body of various mammals and extracts of the comfrey plant. In addition, it is not present in the body of primates and humans. These are some of the characteristics that fuel the global allantoin market growth during the forecast period.

As a result, the need for Allantoin has been growing daily. As a result, the global allantoin market experiences significant change during 2021-2026.

Global Allantoin Market Drivers:

According to the Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association, the demand for Allantoin, used for creams and ointments, further boosts the global allantoin market growth. Moreover, Allantoin is used for treating skin diseases that include diaper rashes, sunburned skin, and chapped skin & lips. Not only these, but Allantoin is also utilized for speeding up the healing cuts, bruises, and burns on the body. Furthermore, it is widely used in shampoos to treat seborrhea, psoriasis, and dandruff. Therefore, the rising demand for Allantoin for health products drives the global allantoin market revenue. In addition, Allantoin is also used in several types of skin care products such as hand & body lotions, face creams, sunscreen, and facial treatment products. Thus, further, increase the global allantoin market growth.

Apart from this, the increasing disposable income of consumers, especially in emerging economies including India, China, and Brazil, and changing lifestyle of the population across the globe are also fueling the global allantoin market growth in the upcoming years. In fact, Allantoin possesses some significant properties, including a keratolytic and moisturizing effect on the human skin. It majorly helps in removing dead skin cells and also increases the water level in the skin. Personal care products include toothpaste, mouth wash, and many others use Allantoin, thus further uplift the growth of the global allantoin market. Allantoin is indulged in the amniotic acid, fetal urine, and allantoic fluid. It is primarily utilized in medicines to promote tissue growth and used in cosmetics personal and skincare products. Allantoin is remarked as safe, compatible with cosmetic raw materials, and non-toxic. These are some of the characteristics that fuel the global allantoin market growth during the forecast period. In addition, growing awareness regarding personal care combined with rising demand for toothpaste, mouth fresheners, and teeth whiteners are the primary factors in increasing the global allantoin market growth. In the next six years, the need for Allantoin is yet to increase due to many end-users increasing demand for Allantoin. 

Global Allantoin Market Restraints:

The usage of Allantoin in many personal care products may cause damage to the liver, which acts as the primary factor that slows down the global allantoin market growth. On the other hand, strict rules and regulations by the government on the ban of comfrey extracts as the product further hinders the global allantoin market growth. The market is majorly affected by the prohibition of comfrey extracts as the product since it is being extracted from the comfrey plants. In addition, many emerging economies include Europe, Australia, and the U.S., have strict regulations on these comfrey products, which may witness the downfall in the overall growth of the global allantoin market in the next six years. Basically, Allantoin is proved as non-toxic and can be safe for skin, but still, people with sensitive skin may experience stinging, irritation, redness, and burning.

Moreover, Allantoin is a gentle anti-ager in skincare and is suitable for most skin types with different ranges of skin. Still, some of the population across the globe may be allergic to the ingredient which is utilized directly from the crushed comfrey leaves, which further hampers the global allantoin market growth. Allantoin is called 5-ureidohydantoin and is a crystalline oxidation product used for healing wounds and infections in the body. It is broadly used in mouth fresheners, toothpaste, and many other skincare products. However, although it is commonly used in many skincare products and pharmaceutical products, people who are allergic to the comfrey leaves, which is used as a product in the skincare, may cause irritation, redness, and burning sensation, that further delays the global allantoin market growth during the foreseen period.
