Toothpastes Come With Toxic Chemicals, Report Says

August 16, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Toothpastes and mouthwashes sold in the US contain potentially toxic chemical ingredients that pose serious health risks to consumers, according to the Cornucopia Institute. Data from the organization's report, "Behind the Dazzling Smile: Toxic Ingredients in Your Toothpaste?," revealed so-called "natural" toothpaste are not necessarily free of these toxic chemicals. Some leading "natural" brands are manufactured by mass-marketed brands, such as Tom's of Maine, which is owned by Colgate-Palmolive. Toothpastes sold in European markets have safer formulations, compared with their US counterparts. According to the Cornucopia Institute, the American Dental Association is "heavily subsidized" by the personal and beauty care industry, raising a conflict of interest.

Market For Overnight Hair Treatments Has Growth Potential In Asia

August 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In Asia, the market for overnight hair treatment products has huge growth potential, according to Mintel. Growth is likely to be driven by consumers' growing concerns regarding the overall health of their hair and their overall positive experiences with overnight facial masks. According to the market research firm, haircare brands should focus on marketing overnight hair masks as a popular type of hair treatments to consumers who have no prior experience with the category. Consumers in China, where concerns are growing with regards to pollution's impact on the health of hair, are among the region's most important markets.

Brexit Will Have Good And Bad Impact On UK's Beauty And Personal Care Market, Mintel Analyst Says

August 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers are expected to reduce their spending in time of uncertainty following the UK's vote to leave the European Union, according to Mintel senior personal care analyst Roshida Khanom. Although Brexit's impact on the beauty and personal care industry remains to be seen, Khanom expects the luxury segment to get a boost from tourists attracted by the sharply devalued pound. Also, the UK's cheaper currency will strengthen exports of local brands, which become more affordable for businesses and consumers outside the country. Brexit's impact is also expected to drive growth for online shopping, as UK consumers seek to avoid the rising costs of importation.

Walgreens, Unilever Partner In Program To Provide Clean Water To African Communities

August 3, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Walgreens and Unilever have come up with a way to boost sales while benefiting African communities that need clean water. Between July 31 and August 27, each purchase of specific Unilever products (i.e., TRESemmé, Suave, Caress and Axe) at a Walgreens store provides five gallons of clean water to a family in a developing Kenyan community. A purchase of two or more Unilever products at Walgreens will help provide 15 gallons of clean water. The donations through the program Give H2OPE to Others are handled by the social enterprise ME to WE. In 2015, Walgreens and Unilever helped donate more than 17.5 million gallons of clean water to the Kenyan village of Kipsongol – 31,000 gallons a day provided by the digging of a borehole.

Foreign Exchange, Other Factors, Impact P&G’s Sales Performance

August 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s fourth quarter – April to June – financials show a significant drop (three percent) in net sales to $16.1 billion, mainly reflecting the impact of currency fluctuations, Venezuela deconsolidation and “minor brand divestitures.”  Organic sales, however, were up two percent, thanks to a concomitant increase in organic shipment volume. The company said diluted net earnings per share were $0.69, an increase of 283 percent over the prior year. Core EPS were $0.79, a decrease of 15 percent due mainly to higher marketing spending, lower gains from minor brand divestitures, and a higher core effective tax rate. Cash flow remained strong, with fiscal year adjusted free cash flow productivity of 115 percent. Top sector sales performers were grooming (up seven percent) and healthcare (up eight percent).

Diminishing Shelf Space Drives CPG Companies To Try Online Innovation

July 29, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Manufacturers of food, drink, beauty, and personal care products are losing store shelf space thanks to the rise of own-brand discount supermarket chains like Aldi and Lidl, and smaller stores that sell independent brands. To meet the challenge, manufacturers – Reckitt Benckiser, Nestlé, Diageo, Unilever, etc. – are increasingly focusing on e-commerce, selling through e-tail websites. But they are also experimenting with delivery-on-demand and subscription-based models. It’s a rising trend: online shoppers globally spent $87 billion on CPG items last year, nine percent of the total online spend. Twenty-five percent of people in 60 countries in 2015 ordered grocery products online for home delivery. Fifty-five percent said they would do so in the future.
