Kiehl's President Salgardo Offers Tips On Men's Grooming And Skincare

November 23, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Kiehl president and self-published author Chris Salgardo offers skincare and grooming tips for men. Salgardo cited several reasons for writing his book “Manmade: The Essential Skincare & Grooming Reference for Every Man,” including the skincare market’s growth despite the recession and men’s reluctance to talk about their grooming habits. Also, he said men, when they recognize him, tend to ask him a lot of questions about grooming.

Procter & Gamble Needs To Break Itself Down Into Smaller, More Agile Units

November 21, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s new CEO David Taylor and chairman and former CEO AG Lafley need to consider breaking up the company to improve its business and revenue performance. After divesting about 100 beauty and personal care brands, opting to focus on its core businesses and cutting costs, sales and revenue remain unimpressive, with the stock down 17 percent in 2015. With P&G split into much smaller and nimbler businesses, each unit would be able to compete better with smaller rivals. Also, a breakup would let shareholders invest in companies likely to grow from a significantly smaller base.

November 19, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble chief financial officer Jon Moeller said top management has evaluated the idea of splitting up the company. Speaking with Wall Street analysts, Moeller said increased costs, reduced efficiency, and high taxation dissuaded company officials from breaking P&G into two or more separate businesses. P&G, which has seen its third CEO in fewer than three years, saw its stock slump 16 percent in 2015. It has sold almost 100 brands considered non-core, worth more than $10 billion, as part of efforts to focus on its core business units.

Upstart Indian FMCG Pins Growth Plans On Consumer Insights

November 18, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A small but ambitious Indian FMCG company with roots in retail believes it may have a marketing edge on the entrenched big brands that dominate the retail universe in the country. Future Group believes that its understanding of Indian needs and preferences will make a big difference. The company has learned that cheaper prices and fancy store displays don’t work as well as consumer insights. Consider body wash, for example, a product that does not sell well. Imported brands tend to be expensive and thick, made for consumers used to taking showers.  Future Group came up with a cheaper product, Think Skin, that is thinner and better suited for use with mugs and buckets. It is now a market leader.

Big-Name Personal Care Brands Dominate Search Rankings

November 17, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Online shopping for personal care products is increasing, so the ranking of brands in search results is of paramount importance. P&G has had the greatest success in placing products at the head of the search line on the first page. P&G brands benefit from the company’s early online success and involvement in e-tail merchandising programs. A report on e-tailer strategy suggests that it’s tough for new brands to break into the top ranks because incumbents have an advantage. In diaper products, for example, P&G’s Pampers wins 40 percent first-page placement on Amazon and Walmart, while Kimberly-Clark’s Huggies leads on Target.

Beauty Brands Catch DTC Train To Reach More Consumers

November 12, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Beauty brands are increasingly adopting direct-to-consumer methods to sell their products. Driven by growing competition for shoppers’ attention in brick-and-mortar stores and consumer access to brand and product information online, beauty brands are embracing digital platforms and innovations in home delivery channels. DTC also helps create a two-way interaction between brands and consumers, with marketers able to gather data about their consumers and vice versa. L’Oreal has been investing in DTC for several years now, while subscription services, such as Birchbox and Le Parcel are using the platform to keep their customers excited about their products and services.
