U.S. Government Must Protect Consumers From Unsafe Ingredients Used In Personal Care And Cosmetics Industries

August 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. government needs to regulate the personal care and beauty industries, a New York Times editorial argues, citing the Wen Hair Care case. The editorial called for stronger consumer protection from harmful ingredients used in cosmetics and other personal care products. While the EU has banned or restricted the use of more than 1,400 ingredients, the U.S. has acted only on 11. With cosmetics safety highlighted as a women’s health issue, an increasing number of companies are working to create and promote ethically conscious products.

Foreign-owned companies dominate Vietnam's beauty and personal care industry, according to delegates at a conference in Ho Chi Minh City held in August 2016.

Market For Overnight Hair Treatments Has Growth Potential In Asia

August 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In Asia, the market for overnight hair treatment products has huge growth potential, according to Mintel. Growth is likely to be driven by consumers' growing concerns regarding the overall health of their hair and their overall positive experiences with overnight facial masks. According to the market research firm, haircare brands should focus on marketing overnight hair masks as a popular type of hair treatments to consumers who have no prior experience with the category. Consumers in China, where concerns are growing with regards to pollution's impact on the health of hair, are among the region's most important markets.

Brexit Will Have Good And Bad Impact On UK's Beauty And Personal Care Market, Mintel Analyst Says

August 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers are expected to reduce their spending in time of uncertainty following the UK's vote to leave the European Union, according to Mintel senior personal care analyst Roshida Khanom. Although Brexit's impact on the beauty and personal care industry remains to be seen, Khanom expects the luxury segment to get a boost from tourists attracted by the sharply devalued pound. Also, the UK's cheaper currency will strengthen exports of local brands, which become more affordable for businesses and consumers outside the country. Brexit's impact is also expected to drive growth for online shopping, as UK consumers seek to avoid the rising costs of importation.

Foreign Exchange, Other Factors, Impact P&G’s Sales Performance

August 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s fourth quarter – April to June – financials show a significant drop (three percent) in net sales to $16.1 billion, mainly reflecting the impact of currency fluctuations, Venezuela deconsolidation and “minor brand divestitures.”  Organic sales, however, were up two percent, thanks to a concomitant increase in organic shipment volume. The company said diluted net earnings per share were $0.69, an increase of 283 percent over the prior year. Core EPS were $0.79, a decrease of 15 percent due mainly to higher marketing spending, lower gains from minor brand divestitures, and a higher core effective tax rate. Cash flow remained strong, with fiscal year adjusted free cash flow productivity of 115 percent. Top sector sales performers were grooming (up seven percent) and healthcare (up eight percent).

Diminishing Shelf Space Drives CPG Companies To Try Online Innovation

July 29, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Manufacturers of food, drink, beauty, and personal care products are losing store shelf space thanks to the rise of own-brand discount supermarket chains like Aldi and Lidl, and smaller stores that sell independent brands. To meet the challenge, manufacturers – Reckitt Benckiser, Nestlé, Diageo, Unilever, etc. – are increasingly focusing on e-commerce, selling through e-tail websites. But they are also experimenting with delivery-on-demand and subscription-based models. It’s a rising trend: online shoppers globally spent $87 billion on CPG items last year, nine percent of the total online spend. Twenty-five percent of people in 60 countries in 2015 ordered grocery products online for home delivery. Fifty-five percent said they would do so in the future.

Louis Vuitton Plans To Sell Perfumes

July 21, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Louis Vuitton, LVMH's high-end luggage and luxury clothing brand, will start selling perfumes in September 2016. Its second attempt at selling fragrances, the first was in the 1940s, involves developing the product lineup in-house. Factors that convinced the company to again offer perfumes include the slowdown in sales of luxury handbags and watches, the economic slowdown in China, and the economic impact of terror attacks around the world. With perfumes expected to add more than $500 million to annual sales, the company plans to sell a product that smells like a suitcase.
