Newsletter

You can receive the most important stories from the news feed in a weekly email. You can customize your weekly email using the email preferences window shown below. It is in the News tab, which is default one that opens when Cosmention starts.

Newsletter interface

You can define filters to increase the relevance of the news stories sent to you by email. In addition, the favorite products, brands, ingredients and hashtags you add in the Ranking tab improve your recommendations. Click on the ♥ heart symbol to favorite something. Cosmention selects stories for you that directly mention those favorites or that are similar to them.

Ranking

Compare products, brands, ingredients, textures and hashtags to see which ones are most relevant on social media. Helps you identify the current best performers and growing competitors.

Ranking interface

Analysis

Get detailed information on products, brands, ingredients, textures and hashtags. Provides mentions by social media platform, sponsored vs organic posts, pricing, reviews, Google searches and more. The available analysis cards depend on the selected entity - a price history makes sense for a product, but not for a hashtag.
