November 23, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Kiehl president and self-published author Chris Salgardo offers skincare and grooming tips for men. Salgardo cited several reasons for writing his book “Manmade: The Essential Skincare & Grooming Reference for Every Man,” including the skincare market’s growth despite the recession and men’s reluctance to talk about their grooming habits. Also, he said men, when they recognize him, tend to ask him a lot of questions about grooming.

Procter & Gamble Needs To Break Itself Down Into Smaller, More Agile Units

November 21, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s new CEO David Taylor and chairman and former CEO AG Lafley need to consider breaking up the company to improve its business and revenue performance. After divesting about 100 beauty and personal care brands, opting to focus on its core businesses and cutting costs, sales and revenue remain unimpressive, with the stock down 17 percent in 2015. With P&G split into much smaller and nimbler businesses, each unit would be able to compete better with smaller rivals. Also, a breakup would let shareholders invest in companies likely to grow from a significantly smaller base.

Procter & Gamble Executives Consider Breaking Up Company

November 19, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble chief financial officer Jon Moeller said top management has evaluated the idea of splitting up the company. Speaking with Wall Street analysts, Moeller said increased costs, reduced efficiency, and high taxation dissuaded company officials from breaking P&G into two or more separate businesses. P&G, which has seen its third CEO in fewer than three years, saw its stock slump 16 percent in 2015. It has sold almost 100 brands considered non-core, worth more than $10 billion, as part of efforts to focus on its core business units.

Beauty Brands Catch DTC Train To Reach More Consumers

November 12, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty brands are increasingly adopting direct-to-consumer methods to sell their products.

Fruity notes, such as fig, cucumber, melon, and pineapple, are becoming popular again, while common fruits, including apple, pear, and plum, are being used for high-end scents, Wilson said. Also, berries are part of the growing fruit notes trend, with Wilson citing Illume’s launch of Blackberry Absinthe fragrances as an example of the growing trend.

Kanebo Launches Skincare Line For Older Women In Japan

November 10, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Kanebo Cosmetics launched Twany Glow, a skincare line designed for women in their 60’s. Accounting for 17 percent of the female population in Japan and 40 percent of the total cosmetics-using population of women aged 15 to 89 years, women in their 60’s are an important market segment for the company. They also have higher per capita spending, with money spent on “cultural activities, leisure, and social entertainment” higher than those of women in younger age groups.

Bobbi Brown Says Women Should Keep Away From Contouring

November 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Makeup industry leader Bobbi Brown spoke out against the contouring trend in cosmetics use. In an interview with The Post newspaper, Brown said contouring makes people’s faces look like dirt and that she prefers the natural, healthy, and fresh face look. She suggested women should highlight their natural cheekbones with a creamy rouge, or apply a moisturizer that gives their face a subtle glow.

Walmart Slotting Fees Will Hurt Smaller Brands With Little Room To Maneuver

November 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Last June Walmart announced it would change payment terms and charge fees, including slotting (shelf space) fees and distribution center fees. It was a setback for smaller marketers and suppliers who, it is felt, may have to compensate for the increased costs by cutting back on innovation and marketing, a bad move because brands need to advertise to survive. Larger suppliers, like P&G and Clorox, have more flexibility. They can pressure their own suppliers and find other ways to trim costs. A former retail executive says the big question for younger, smaller brands is whether to “jump into the Walmart game at all” or figure out some way to build the business through other channels, like Amazon.com.

Unilever Wants Its Money's Worth From Digital Advertising, Mansfield Says

November 5, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever developed an advanced programmatic advertising strategy in order to get from digital marketing what it is paying for, according to the company’s global VP of media for Europe and the Americas, Sarah Mansfield. She said one of the biggest challenges of her job is the degree of how localized media can be, such as the case with Latin America and other emerging markets and how they differ from the developed countries. Mansfield said the industry has reassured Unilever of full support for its demand that digital ads be seen 100 percent on a web page.
