Avon Seeks To Sell Part Of Itself To External Investors

September 10, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Avon Products Inc. is negotiating with private-equity firms regarding the sale of a stake in the cosmetics company. Wall Street investors reacted negatively to the news, with share of Avon dropping 9.5 percent to $4.10, about 56 percent down on the year. Avon, whose stock has lost about 90 percent of its value from a 2004 high, is in talks with Cerberus Capital Management LP and Platinum Equity LLC, which signals the cosmetics seller’s failure to find a buyer for the whole company.

Department Stores Adjust Tactics As They Try To Reclaim Beauty Market Share

August 28, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
For more than a decade, department stores have lost beauty product market share to Web sites, airport shops, boutiques and discount pharmacies. Now they are fighting back, eager to reclaim some of that lost business. Kohl’s is revamping its beauty department, while J.C. Penney has broadened its alliance with Sephora and has repositioned its salon services. But stores are also recovering market share by emphasizing high-end beauty products. Premium-price products outpaced the cheaper mass segment last year, partly because of the improving economy, according to analysts. Another strategy: selling expensive dual-purpose products, like foundation with sunscreen or anti-aging ingredients.

Subscription Box Companies Make Money Selling Free Samples

August 12, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
One of the newest formulas for online retail success is the theme-based subscription box that arrives – at $10 to $30 per shipment -- full of stuff the company got as free samples from other companies. The concept originated with two Harvard Business School graduates who created Birchbox. The company, for $10 a month, mails a box packed with free sample cosmetics products. A slew of competitors now offer doomsday preparation supplies, pet treats, Japanese snacks, recipes and ingredients, wine, children’s products, socially responsible goods, and books (and trinkets) for young adults. Some observers think the subscription box phenomenon may be a bubble about to burst, but that’s not deterring copycats: “[The economics are] alluring enough that new players keep charging in."

Coty Chairman And CEO Becht Says He Can Lead His Company Post-P&G Beauty Acquisitions

July 16, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Coty Inc. chairman and CEO Bart Becht said he believes he is the right man to lead his company and the $12.5 billion beauty brands the company has agreed to buy from Procter & Gamble. Replying to some industry analysts' lack of confidence in his ability to manage the merged company, Becht said he has no plans of recruiting somebody else to lead the company. Becht said the company might hire a new leader in the future, but there was no immediate timeframe for that. He has had significant experience in overseeing and running mergers, including the marriage between Reckitt & Colman and Benckiser in 1999.

Shiseido Announces Results Of Research Into Links Between Lymphatic Vessel Impairment And Sagging Skin

July 13, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Shiseido Co., Ltd., said impaired function of dermal lymphatic vessels brings about accumulation of subcutaneous fat, which in turn causes skin sagging. Performed in partnership with Nobuyuki Takakura, professor at Osaka University's Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, the study first reported the discovery that “pine cone extra” collected from Pinus Sylvestris, which is found across Europe and Asia, strengthens and normalizes the lymphatic vessels. Shiseido said it is developing skincare products based on the findings of the study.

Consumers' Fragrance Experience Determines Cult Status Of Fragrance Brands, Takasago SVP Says

July 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
In developing a cult brand in the fragrance industry, fragrance experience drives consumer loyalty, according to Paul Ireland, SVP and general manager at flavors and fragrance supplier Takasago International. Ireland said a cult fragrance is created by developing a fragrance that “speaks directly” to the human subconscious. He described a cult fragrance as innovative in its olfactive character and creates a new sensory experience. In order to create a cult fragrance brand, perfumers must have the passion, confidence, and experience that would enable them to dare to be different and surprise the customer, Ireland said.
