This attitude is helping to drive the wellness trend beyond food and drink and into the personal care industry.

Personal care occasions focusing on stress relief and pampering represent an important growth market. The combined value of such occasions in Europe and the US is forecast to approach US$6bn by 2010. This occasion growth is being driven by the mentality that it is important to find ways to escape the pressures of everyday life.
