The market study, authored by industry expert Karen Doskow, tracks the male grooming market, which is broken out into five categories:
1. Deodorants and antiperspirants (spray, stick, rollon, and gel), excluding crystal deodorants and deodorant sheets
2. Hair care products (shampoos, conditioners, and styling products), excluding hair color
3. Personal cleansing products (bar soaps, shower gels, and body washes)
4. Shaving products (creams and gels, aftershaves), excludes razors and blades
5. Skin care products for men (facial treatments, hand and body lotions, and sun care products)
