Shiseido Partners With Microsoft Japan To Develop Virtual Makeup App For Teleworking Women

June 18, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Shiseido worked with Microsoft Japan to develop TeleBeauty, an application designed to make a person appear on computer monitors as if he or she is wearing makeup. According to the cosmetics company, the app is aimed at women who telework and use computers to teleconference with their employers, clients, or coworkers. Offering users four basic patterns, natural, trend, cool, and feminine, the app can also correct skin tones and “de-focus other parts than face.”

L’Oréal Takes An Expensive Flier On Virtual Reality Technology

June 16, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal’s Beauty Lab (left), located at the company’s year-old west-side Manhattan headquarters, serves as an experimental virtual reality center to explore a technology some industry observers call “the next frontier of fashion and beauty.” Though virtual reality has taken baby steps in fashion and cosmetics, it has yet to make significant inroads, and has had almost no impact on sales. Skeptics note that researchers aren’t even sure what to do with test data that are collected. L’Oréal, however, has invested a lot of money in its VR glasses, floor-to-ceiling VR screen, and additional 3-D modeling screens. Not so much to wow consumers, but to advance and enhance internal research. [Image Credit: © L’Oréal ]

Fosun Should Find Better Takeover Target Than The Body Shop, Analyst Says

June 6, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Chinese conglomerate Fosun International should discontinue its efforts to secure the rights to buy The Body Shop, the beauty retailer owned by L'Oreal SA. There are several reasons why Fosun would be better off looking for another company to acquire. These include the lack of positive forecasts for the retail sector, including the beauty retail segment. Also, The Body Shop's emphasis on all-natural beauty products no longer differentiates it from rival retailers, as reflected by the 4.8 percent drop in revenue in 2016. With a price tag of $900 million, which is expected to significantly jump once a likely bidding war starts, The Body Shop is quite expensive.

Trusted Brands In 40+ Product Categories Listed By Reader’s Digest

May 16, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
An online survey of 5,500 American consumers found that 49 percent are less trusting of brands these days. The survey, conducted by Reader’s Digest, sought to find the most trusted brands in 40 product categories, including food and beverage, beauty and healthcare, retail, etc. According to the company, which awards a “Trusted Brand seal of approval” to products, the survey found that trust outweighs product pricing and trust ensures customer retention and brand loyalty. (It doesn’t, however, equate with top sales: Ford is ranked as most trusted car company, but GM is the top seller.) More than half of participants said the Reader’s Digest seal of approval would increase their likelihood of trusting a brand.  [Image Credit: © Reader's Digest ]

Popular Beauty Brands Fail Ethics Test, Ethical Consumer Magazine Says

May 8, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Popular and leading beauty brands have failed a corporate ethics analysis by the Ethical Consumer magazine. Focused on workers' rights, environmental policies, and animal testing, the test revealed that even brands perceived by consumers as ethical were actually guilty by association with their parent companies. Some brands sold by retailer Boots were rated poor because parent company Walgreens Boots Alliance does not require suppliers to ban animal testing. LVMH's beauty brand Benefit got a terrible score of 1.5 points out of 20 for its parent company's refusal to join the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.

Symrise Announces Synthetic Fragrance Copy Of Scent Of Lily Of The Valley

May 8, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Fragrance developer Symrise announced it has developed Lilybelle, a synthetic fragrance with fresh and transparent notes very similar to those of the lily of the valley. Lily of the valley are easy to cultivate; however, its flowers are delicate and offer very low yields. Also, its scent is very difficult to acquire with enough efficiency either through steam distillation or volatile solvent extraction. Perfume houses have been investing significantly to develop alternatives to existing synthetic molecules, such as Lyral or Lillial, which have been withdrawn from the market due to public health issues.

Israel Wages War Against High Prices Of Beauty And Personal Care Products

April 28, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Israel’s Economy Ministry is aiming to reduce prices of imported beauty and personal care products. Following the government agencies’ efforts to rein in prices of consumer products, including meat and cellphones, the Ministry is eyeing importers of cosmetics, toiletries, and other personal care products who, the government says, are charging local consumers more than residents of other countries. Results of a study by the Ministry revealed prices of beauty and personal care products in Israel are often the highest in the countries, including the 12 European Union countries, covered by the study. According to the government, a lack of free market and competition is a major cause of the high prices.

April 19, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Asian-Americans spend more on skincare on average than other consumers around the world, and 70% more than the average American. They also spend more than the average consumer globally on perfume, cosmetics and hair care, according to research from LondonEconomic.com. Asian-Americans are choosing premium skincare products, such as face cream made with snail extract in South Korea and now available in the US. Average expenditure on health in the US is higher than in other countries, but although the US tops the list of the number of people undergoing cosmetic surgery, for either medical or aesthetic purposes, the percentage of the population choosing surgery is higher for South Korea. The US ranks highest for average expenditure by men and women on cosmetics, with Japan second, and it ranks top for usage, with Japan top in Asia. [ Image credit: Image Source ]
