World Cosmetics Market Continues Move Toward Cruelty-Free Products

January 13, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
After the European Union banned animal testing for cosmetics in 2013, a number of countries have also outlawed the practice. Although some cosmetics companies still use animals to test the safety of their products before releasing to the market, consumers are increasingly voicing their opposition to the cruel practice, with 57 percent of adults surveyed by Nielsen saying they prefer products with packaging that indicates the manufacturer did not perform animal testing. There are alternatives to animal testing, including in vitro testing and the use of human skin equivalent systems. Manufacturers can also use established ingredients to ensure that their products are safe for humans. Obstacles to achieving “animal testing free” status include the animal testing law in China, one of the world’s largest cosmetics market, and government policies that neither ban nor encourage animal testing in Japan.

Marketers Face Growing Consumer Efforts To Avoid Ads

January 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Consumer packaged goods companies are trying to find ways of maximizing marketing efficiency when consumers are doing their best to avoid advertisements. For example, Unilever spends $7.7 billion on advertising worldwide and another $15 million to protect that investment by working with marketing-technology startups through its Foundry program. In the United States, the Great Recession and economic policy changes have battered the middle class, pushing more people into the lower class. Clorox shifted more than 40 percent of its media spending to digital marketing, which uses programmatic media, to serve most relevant ads to consumers. Also, marketers are putting their ad spending into media where ads are harder to avoid, such as sports and other live TV programs.
