L’Oréal skincare device wins patent case in shorter trials procedure pilot

March 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
The Patents Office has ruled that the L’Oréal patent and one of its community registered designs were infringed by RN Ventures’ “Magnitone” electronic brush for deep cleansing of face pores. Another L’Oreal company, the exclusive licensee of L’Oreal’s rights in the UK, was the second claimant in the case. The case used the shorter trials procedure pilot scheme introduced to the High Court in October 2015 and will be available until September 2018.  The case is of interest because it used the shorter trials procedure in considering one patent and two registered designs involving significant cross-examination with regard to expert evidence. The shorter trials procedure is intended for commercial and business cases not requiring extensive disclosure, witness or expert evidence. It aims to reduce costs and shorten trials to three to four days.[Image Credit: © Magnitone]

P&G brand chief to major digital players: Prove marketing investment leads to sales

March 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s chief brand officer Marc Pritchard called on big digital players to prove that marketing investment results in sales and not just excess frequency. He revealed that P&G cut $200m from its digital ad budget last year after new data showed that average view time for an ad on a mobile newsfeed was just 1.7 seconds. The multinational consumer goods giant also reduced spend on “long tail” marketing after re-evaluating its approach to programmatic. Citing the opportunity for full integration of media, shopping and data, Pritchard noted that P&G maintained its overall media investment with e-commerce players such as Amazon as well as Alibaba, Tencent and JD in China, where the company’s focus is increasing. P&G also plans to change the way it works with agency partners in order to align with the company’s new direction of more brand entrepreneurship and less project management. [Image Credit: © Procter & Gamble]

L'Oréal Group Closes Robust 2017, Posting Strong Sales, Profit, Solid Growth

March 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
The L'Oréal Group closed out fiscal 2017 reporting strong sales for the year, totaling €26.02 billion ($32.3 billion), up 4.8 percent from 2016 based on a comparable scope of consolidation and constant exchange rates. Factors affecting revenue included consolidation (-2.8 percent); acquisitions (+0.9 percent); sale of The Body Shop (-3.7 percent); and currency fluctuations (-1.3 percent). Growth at constant exchange rates was 2.0 percent. Growth in the Active Cosmetics Division, which includes the CeraVe products, was 5.8 percent like-for-like (11.9 percent reported). Division sales surpassed €2 billion ($2.5 billion). The division continues to grow internationally, “thanks to the successful integration of CeraVe, which is growing strongly in the American market” at a rate of 20 percent annually. The company still posted growth of 1.7 percent like-for-like (3.5 percent reported). “The American market is continuing to grow, but is facing a slowdown,” the company said.
 
The profitability of Active Cosmetics slid 60 basis points at 22.6 percent but continues to be the most profitable division. The company noted that it invested significantly “to support skincare brand Vichy, to accelerate La Roche-Posay, and to prepare for the rollout of CeraVe.” The company saw acceleration in the overall skincare market, thanks to Baby Boomers and to Millennials, and to Asian consumers. Division President Brigitte Liberman said two major elements are driving the division’s success: first, a “powerful and sustainable trend for skincare you can trust,” and second, the acquisition of CeraVe, which has “transformed the worldwide footprint of the division and complemented our brand portfolio.”  [Image Credit: ©  L'Oréal]

Hain Celestial’s 2nd Quarter Sales, Profits Increase, But Miss Forecasts

February 7, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Natural and organic food marketer Hain Celestial (Lake Success, N.Y.) posted second quarter profit of $47.1 million on sales of $775.2 million, a five percent increase over the same period last year. Second quarter profit was up 73 percent over the prior year period. But the results missed Wall Street estimates, sending shares on a downward slide, dropping 6.3 percent in morning trading. Nevertheless, CEO Irwin D. Simon said he was pleased with the financial performance and noted that the company continues to look for ways to simplify its brand portfolio and “reduce complexities.” Though net sales for Hain Pure Protein increased four percent to $159 million over the prior year period, the company said it is exploring the divestiture of the business.

Bioengineering Success May Give L’Oréal A Competitive Advantage In China

January 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal China Co. has succeeded in reconstructing Chinese skin cells in a Shanghai lab from living tissue donors. The cells will be used by R&D teams to test makeup and skincare products, such as anti-aging serums, whitening creams, and pollution-fighting cleansers, for Chinese consumers – “the most demanding in the world in almost all our product categories,” a company representative said. L’Oréal is the top-selling beauty brand in China, but consumers have begun to turn to local brands for products formulated for their skin type. An industry analyst said the company has recognized the trend and has ”moved to adapt to the different genes to capture the huge potential of the Chinese market.” [Image Credit: © Cosmetics China Agency]

Survey: Americans Are Neglecting To Moisturize Their Skin In Winter

January 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
An online survey conducted by Harris Poll has found that 65 percent of participants believe the winds, low temperatures, hot showers, and warm houses of January contribute to dry skin. The poll, sponsored by skincare company CeraVe, found that 42 percent believe dry skin in the winter is one of the things they dislike most – more than going to the DMV, filing taxes, and shoveling snow – and wish there were a “quick fix” for the problem. Many of those polled (25 percent) said they are neglecting a skincare routine that could bring them the fix they're seeking. Fifteen percent admitted they never moisturize their skin at all. CeraVe announced the poll results in conjunction with its declaration that January 8 is Winter Skin Relief Day, a good time to start moisturizing with products like CeraVe Healing Ointment.

New Tests For Skin Allergy, Eye Irritation Offer Alternatives To Animal Testing

November 28, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal has developed two ways to test compounds for skin allergy and eye irritation that can be used instead of animal testing. The two new alternatives have been adopted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). U-SENS predicts the sensitizing potential of formulations, while HCE EIT can detect the eye irritation potential of chemicals. The U-SENS method for detecting and predicting a skin allergy is based on tests performed in vitro on human cells that express a specific marker of immunity. HCE EIT is based on a human cornea epithelium model reconstructed in vitro that faithfully reproduces human histological and morphological properties.  [Image Credit: © Univ. of Cincinnati ]

L’Oréal’s nine-month financial performance was solid, with a 2.4 percent increase in sales to $22.6 billion. Changes related to company consolidation led to a net 2.2 percent drop in sales. These included the acquisition of ECosmetics (September 2016) and CeraVe (March 207), and the sale of the Body Shop. Like-for-like sales were up 4.5 percent, and currencies had a -3.5 percent impact. Active Cosmetics sales grew at better than five percent. CEO Jean-Paul Agon said the Active Cosmetics business would prosper because of strong demand for skincare products recommended by dermatologists. He also said the company next year would begin international deployment of CeraVe, “which I think has a very big potential." Company execs said they were confident sales and profit of the company overall would again outperform the cosmetics market in 2017. [Image Credit: ©   L’Oréal ]

Stagnant Indonesia Economy Could Drive Unilever To Tinker With Product Portfolio

November 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
A PT Unilever Indonesia executive said a stagnant business environment tends to increase the cost of living and push middle-class consumers toward smaller, cheaper products. More affluent consumers, however, continue to buy premium-priced goods. Consumer research in Indonesia shows that the composition of high-income, middle-income, and low-income consumers is now 10 percent-40 percent-50 percent, respectively. The middle-income segment could decline, however, if the stagnant environment persisted. Anticipating that, Unilever would “need to change our portfolio."  [Image Credit: © Unilever Indonesia  ]

Australian-Made Beauty, Personal Care Products Attract Chinese Consumers

October 30, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Chinese consumer demand for Australian-made beauty and personal care products is strong, thanks to the country’s clean and green reputations, strict regulations, and quarantine control. Demand for Australian products will remain strong, according to Euromonitor, because they are more trusted and perceived as higher quality, with consumers willing to pay a premium. Australian companies can expect increasing sales, including via direct-to-consumer channels like Chinese e-commerce sites Tmall and JD.com. Australian companies and retailers have opened their own sites through these channels as well.  [Image Credit: © A'kin Australia  ]

FMCG Start-Ups In India Rely On Innovation, Pluck

October 13, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The biggest hurdles for India’s start-up FMCG companies as they battle industry giants for market share are capital, retail shelf space, distribution, and marketing. They sometimes make strides through pure luck, but innovation and persistence are the most reliable vehicles to success. In its early days RAW Pressery, for example, an online marketer of cold-pressed juices, adapted Mumbai’s dabbawala hot-lunch delivery system based on bicycles and rail transport to deliver its juice products. Dabbawalas were able to deliver 50,000 purchases in three hours. Four years later, the company’s fleet of 25 refrigerated vehicles delivers its own juices as well as products for other brands. The end result is that RAW Pressery and other aggressive start-ups are able to peel off market share from bigwigs like Unilever, Nestlé, and others.

Seeing Inefficiency, P&G Seeks Revamp Of Digital Ad Strategy

October 8, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s chief brand officer, Marc Pritchard, is revamping the company’s digital marketing processes to avoid wasted ad spend and to grow revenue, which is stuck in the low single-digits. Pritchard argues that despite spending $600 billion annually, P&G is “reaching too few people too many times with too many ads.” The company is now working with social media networks to create shorter, less frequent, yet more engaging digital ads, and also to ensure that its ads are not shown alongside irrelevant or offensive content.

Upcoming GDPR Legislation Set To Have Global Impact

October 5, 2017: 12:00 AM EST

New General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are due to arrive in May 2018. GDPR will create a standardized data privacy law for EU members. It will also affect companies and individuals selling goods or services to EU citizens. The legislation will give individuals more rights to their data, including the “right to be forgotten” and asking consent for data processing. Potential fines for not adhering to the regulations can be up to $24m, or 4% of a company’s annual turnover. A recent PwC survey revealed that GDPR is a top data priority for more than 50 percent of US multinationals.[Image Credit: ©  EDPS]
