May 12, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty brand Bare Escentuals is relocating its headquarters from the West Coast to New York City. Bare Escentuals’ main reason for moving is to benefit from using resources being put in place by Shiseido Americas, a subsidiary of Shiseido Co. Ltd., which acquired the beauty brand in 2010 in a $1.7 billion deal. Shiseido Americas president and CEO Marc Rey said the relocation is aimed at growing the brand and is not a cost-cutting effort. Bare Escentuals’ BareMinerals is the number 2 makeup brand in the US, after MAC Cosmetics.

Johnson & Johnson Battles Allegations It Failed To Act On Reported Talcum-Cancer Links

May 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Johnson & Johnson is fighting legal claims and public perception that the company put more emphasis on revenue than on ethics following a court case awarding damages to a woman diagnosed with cancer after years of using its talcum powder. J&J asserts that there is no sufficient medical evidence linking ovarian cancer risk to talcum powder use. Despite scientific facts being cited by the company, however, its brand is likely to suffer significant damage. While it seems that the company ignored information or warnings from some scientific studies highlighting possible links between its product and ovarian cancer, there are no definitive argument for this, according to Wharton lecturer in health care management Robert Field.

L'Oreal Loses Bid To Secure Trademark For Idealia

May 4, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
L'Oreal failed to secure a trademark for the word “Idealia” after the EU General Court ruled against the beauty brand. In turn, the court ruled in favor of Portugal-based Theralab—Produtos Farmaceuticos e Nutraceuticos, which opposed the beauty brand's trademark application, citing its EUTM for the word mark “Idealina.” According to the European Union Intellectual Property Office's Opposition Division, the Portuguese company's opposition had merits. Handed down on April 28, 2016, the General Court's ruling sided with the Opposition Division.
