Procter & Gamble's Latest $10-Billion Cost-Cutting Move Fails To Impress Investors

April 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co.’s chief executive officer David Taylor said his company plans to implement another $10-billion cost-cutting program during the next five years. Presented during Taylor’s first public meeting with investors in February 2016, the cost-cutting plan follows the previous round of cost cuts, also valued at $10 billion, in 2012. Wall Street investors and analysts, however, are expressing doubts about the latest cost-cutting plan of the company. P&G’s failure to provide details about the plan is part of the reasons for the company’s failure to fully convince investors about its ability to implement more cost-cutting moves.

April 20, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Personal care manufacturers are developing products for consumers looking for haircare products designed for reverse-wash routine. Driven by its growing popularity among bloggers and social media users, reverse-wash routine calls for using the conditioner first to soften the hair, then the hair is washed with shampoo to remove weight, leaving the hair “smooth, polished, and voluminous.” Also, according to experts in haircare science, reverse-wash is backed by scientific evidence. Haircare brand TRESemme partnered with model and TV host Chrissy Teigen to launch Beauty-Full Volume, a haircare system designed for reverse-wash.

Johnson & Johnson Readies Relaunch Of Baby Care Business

April 19, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Johnson & Johnson plans to relaunch its baby care business, because millennial mothers are abandoning the company’s talcum powders and shampoos and are turning to more expensive organic products. In the first quarter of 2016, sales of the company’s baby care products in the United States fell 14 percent year on year to $95 million, a record low for Johnson & Johnson in a decade. Chief financial officer Dominic Caruso said the decline in sales was due to the emergence of new competitors, especially those that manufacture high-end, natural products. Caruso, however, said the company has “robust plans” for relaunching the business.

Unilever CEO Paul Polman Calls On Business To Be More Proactive In Protecting Environment

April 14, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever CEO Paul Polman is calling on business to put more importance on long-term sustainability goals than profits. Polman said the cost of doing nothing about to protect the environment is becoming more expensive than action. With governments still hampered by debt following the global financial crisis of a decade ago, business must be willing to pay for developments promoting sustainability, the executive said. After his appointment as Unilever CEO in 2009, Polman proposed the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, which seeks to double the company’s revenue while reducing its environmental impact by half and sourcing 100 percent of raw materials from sustainable suppliers.
