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.

Lush Would Rather Sell Naked Products Than Use Non-Environment-Friendly Packaging, Buying Manager Says

May 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty brand Lush is selling solid products, such as shampoo bars, soap, and Bath Bombs, that do not need as much packaging as conventional personal care products. When a product needs packaging for protection, Lush uses packaging made from recycled materials. One of its recycling programs, Black Pot, has helped collect more than 300,000 black pots, which were later recycled into new black pots. Lush's ethical buying manager Heather Deeth said creating packaging-free products is a main part of the company's business philosophy, with the company's emphasis on focusing on product quality instead of packaging. Lush uses 100-percent recycled content material for plastic, paper, or cardboard packaging, Deeth said.

India's Market For Grooming Products For Men Keeps Growing, Analysts Say

May 1, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In India, the market for men's grooming products is valued at about $600 million and is expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 11 percent, according to Euromonitor International. India's eight largest cities and tier-2 urban areas account for most of the growth in the local market, which is part of a global market worth $33 billion a year. Also driving market growth is Indians' desire for fairer skin, which has created a market for skin-whitening products valued at $80 million a year. Local brand Fair & Handsome, owned by Emami, accounts for 66 percent of sales of skin-whitening products, according to a Nielsen survey published in the first quarter of 2016. According to analysts, the market is likely to double in value in the next five years, driven by widening adoption by men of fairness creams and face washes.

Demand Grows For Ingestible Beauty Products In United States

April 30, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty and personal care products that come in a pill or drinkable-liquid form are becoming popular in the United States, with sales of supplements aimed at the face growing from $1 million in 2013 to more than $4 million in 2015, according to NPD Group. Sales of ingestible products are expected to keep growing, driven by endorsement by celebrities, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston. There are questions about these products’ safety and effectiveness; however, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration does not have enough manpower to make sure they are safe and they work as their manufacturers claim. At present, there is a lack of science-based evidence supporting manufacturers’ claims; nevertheless, beauty companies are introducing their own lineups of ingestible beauty products. Retailers, including Urban Outfitters, Sephora, and CAP are selling these products.

La Prairie Focuses On Consumer Demand For Beauty Products That Offer Multiple Benefits

April 30, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
La Prairie is addressing consumer demand for makeup and skincare products that offer multiple benefits and perform doubling with its Cellular Cleansing Water Eyes and Face and Foam Cleanser, according to VP of marketing Elizabeth Lamont. According to the executive, consumers are no longer satisfied with products that do not offer multiple benefits. For example, moisturizers need to do more than just moisturize the skin, because consumers know that moisturizers should also protect the skin from UV exposure. There is also a renewed interest in makeups that provide a slightly more matte finish, Lamont said.

An antiseptic chlorhexidine gel, developed through a partnership between GSK and Save the Children and designed to prevent umbilical cord infections in newborn infants in developing countries, has received a positive scientific opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency.

Procter & Gamble India Sees Sales Growth Stall As Company Focuses On Margins

April 28, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble India’s strategically important brands posted high single-digit sales growth in the January–March 2016 quarter, while sales for the rest of its local businesses, which make up about 15 percent of its brand lineup, dropped 30 percent. With the company’s push to improve margins hampering total sales, Procter & Gamble saw growth rates that were slower than the 15–20 percent recorded in the past decade, even for the core brands.

Helen Of Troy Reports Net Sales Revenue Rose Slightly In 4Q Of FY 2016

April 28, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Helen of Troy reported net sales revenue rose 2.1 percent to $385.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared with the same quarter of the previous year. Gross profit margin decreased 1.7 percentage points to 42.0 percent, compared with 43.7 percent for the same period in the previous year. According to the company, the decrease in consolidated gross profit margin was mainly due to a non-cash impairment charge of $9.1 million recorded to reflect the company's inventory in Venezuela. Operating income declined from $49 million for the same period in the previous year to this year's $16 million, due to Venezuelan currency re-measurement charges of $18.7 million; impact of a $17.8 million patent litigation charge; negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations; and a non-cash impairment charge of $3 million related to a trademark in the beauty business.
