Ohio State University Researchers Develop Bottle That Empties To The Last Drop

June 26, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Ohio State University researchers have developed a bottle that lets soap products, including shampoo, hand soap, and laundry detergent, pour out completely to the last drop. Described in a paper to be published in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society on June 27, 2016, the patent-pending technology involves lining a plastic bottle with microscopic y-shaped structures that hold the soap droplets above tiny air pockets. Research leaders and engineers Bharat Bhushan and Philip Brown found a solution that works on polypropylene, the most commonly used plastic in packaging of food and household products.

June 23, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Moody’s Investors Service downgraded its credit rating for Avon Products Inc. According to the bond credit rating company, the downgrade is due in part to Avon Products’ spinoff of its North America unit. Avon’s corporate family rating was downgraded from Ba2 to Ba3, its probability-of-default rating from Pa2-PD to Ba3-PD, and its senior unsecured instrument rating from Ba3 to B1. Avon Products sold its North America business, renamed New Avon, to private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP in March 2016.

Consumer Interest In Natural Formulations Could Save US Facial Skincare Market, Mintel Says

June 20, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Consumer interest in natural formulations could help revive the facial skincare and anti-aging market in the US, which saw sales decline in 2015 after years of slow but steady growth, according to Mintel. Data from the market research firm’s report, Global Beauty and Personal Care Trend Gastronomia, revealed 14 percent of consumers agree that pollution affects the appearance of their skin. This leads to consumer interest in products that have milder, more natural formulations and shield them against pollution. Also, consumers agree that lifestyle plays an important role in their skin’s appearance, with 44 percent saying hydration and 36 percent saying diet affect the skin.

Growth Slows For India's Beauty And Personal Care Market In 2015

June 14, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
India's beauty and personal care products market grew 13.6 percent to $11 billion in 2015, the lowest growth rate in five years, according to Euromonitor. Data from the market research firm revealed sales fell due to a slowdown in consumer spending on personal care products. Weak growth in this segment, which accounts for about 22 percent of the country's total FMCG market, according to consulting firm KPMG and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, was blamed on low monsoon for two consecutive years.

Beauty Brands Need To Show They Understand Male Consumers To Grow US Men's Grooming Market

June 9, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty and personal care brands need to position themselves as brands that understand the needs of men in order to grow the market for male grooming products in the US. This need is more urgent for brands previously known only for their female beauty and personal care products. In order to more effectively position themselves, these brands need to employ clear messaging and concise, skillfully designed packaging that is easy for men to understand. Also, growth potential is enhanced by the aging of generation X men, who witnessed the metro-sexual movement, and generation Y men, who prefer the authentic, personalized feeling offered by “craft” beauty products.

Procter & Gamble Readies For Expansion During Second Post-Lafley Period

June 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
With A.G. Lafley set to leave Procter & Gamble Co. for the second and final time, the consumer goods giant is set to expand and grow its business operations. On July 1, 2016, president and CEO David Taylor will assume the role as chairman of the company. During his first stint as leader of P&G in 2000 to 2009, Lafley more than doubled sales and expanded its lineup of billion-dollar brands from 10 to 23. Lafley was recalled to refresh his role as leader after the company's sales started declining by 2013, due to the Great Depression. Lafley's second stint, however, was not as smooth sailing as his first at the start. Despite the early headwinds, Lafley led a five-year $10-billion restructuring plan aimed at focusing on the company's core brands and cutting costs significantly. Among the brands disposed of by the company were Mars pet foods and Duracell batteries. In 2015, P&G sold 43 beauty brands to Coty for $12.5 billion.

Retailers Look At Chatbots As Another Way Of Staying In Touch With Customers

June 3, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Retailers are testing chatbots, computer programs powered by artificial intelligence and designed to imitate human conversations, as a means to reach, retain, and sell to customers. Although chatbots have been around for years, the growing popularity of messaging apps, such as Kik, WhatsApp, and Snapchat, has made these AI-enabled chat tools popular. With American consumers' retail spending on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, forecast by eMarketer to grow from $123.13 billion in 2016 to $242.08 billion in 2020, retailers might see advantages in deploying chatbots. There are some drawbacks to using chatbots; for example, there is the risk of losing data and insights if customers stopped using their apps and websites. Also, these AI-enabled tools are still not fully capable of fully mimicking human conversations and usually fail when faced with queries and comments not covered by their scripts.

Growth In World’s Muslim Population Ensures Halal’s Continued Prosperity

June 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The global halal market is growing rapidly. Deloitte estimates the market leapt past $1 trillion in 2015. Food accounted for 61 percent of halal trade, pharmaceuticals 26 percent, and cosmetics 11 percent. Western multinationals have customized products for the halal market, while new companies are developing innovative items. The main driver behind the surging market is the rapid growth in the global Muslim population, and the need to comply with Sharia restrictions on diet. But Sharia is not the only force driving halal’s growth. Halal certification is also seen as a mark of safer, healthier, higher-quality products. Described as the “organic option” for the 21st century, the designation appeals to both Muslims and non-Muslims, ensuring continued growth.
