Some women just wait to be noticed. She does not go unnoticed. Some women wait for the world to move them. She moves the world and makes heads turn. Some women wait to be tamed. She is uncontrollable. She has a feline grace and the energy of a rebellious creature. Her apparitions become events. Her life is a scene on which she plays with glamour and charisma. Sexy, sophisticated, she turns her excesses into elegance. She is an enchanting woman who inspires the creator and enables him to imagine the silhouette and the motifs of a fragrance that dresses a woman like a fabric. She is the Roberto Cavalli Woman.

EDiTORiAL

In addition to my daughter Abby turning 21 years old this month, February holds another long withstanding event: the annual Personal Care Products Council meeting. This years edition is being held in Naples just after Presidents Day weekend. Word is that participation is robust and hotel rooms are scarcebut not as bad as Indianapolis. Of course, by the time this is read we will know the outcomelest there be any doubt, I will have this printed in blue. We start this year on a good note from the domestic market but there are overriding concerns about the global market, and in particular, the European community. I am sure this will be the subject of much of the unofficial conversation in Naples this year. Please note that beyond the standard fare of PCPC-related articles in this issue, as well as the annual suppliers review, we have added a special section on skincare. This ever-burgeoning category continues unabated with new launches, new technologies and new players. Of course, as soon as this is written, there will be even more new additions that we will have missedalas the nature of the beast. I have my fingers crossed for a strong Valentines Day showing. I trust that as an industry we can continue to grow and evolve in this dramatically changing economic and retail environment.

REBORN
AHAVA, the Israel-based skincare brand, has made the skin-nourishing benefits of the Dead Sea available to all. Since its inception in 1988, AHAVA Dead Sea Laboratories, the sole cosmetics company located in the Dead Sea region, has been dedicated to its mission of revealing the mystical, revitalizing properties that the minerals of the sea possess. Already an established brand with an extremely loyal following, AHAVA underwent a complete repositioning in 2011 in an effort to streamline its product offerings and better communicate the brands message to its customers. The re-launch of AHAVA was executed in several stages. To begin the re-branding, AHAVAs facial and body care products were organized into cohesive collections. The restructured lines for facial care are arranged by skincare concern and include Time to Clear, Time to Hydrate, Time to Smooth and Time to Revitalize, while the body care products are organized by key ingredients: Deadsea Water, Deadsea Mud, Deadsea Salt and Deadsea Plants. For easy reference, a stripe-based system was placed on the packaging of the facial care line to signify the products level of intensity. A single stripe denotes the most basic level of care, while additional stripes indicate a heightened degree of treatment. Representative images on the body care cartons, from a smudge of mud to a sprinkle of salt, depict the AHAVAs Elana Drell Szyfer chief ingredient of the product. Along with the restructured organization of its product collections, AHAVA unveiled its new, nature-inspired packaging. Not only was this reflected in its crisp appearance, but the packaging itself is more eco-friendly by using less plastic than before. While many of AHAVAs product formulations remain unchanged, several formulas experienced an update for optimal performance. Furthermore, all products are now produced to be paraben-, sulfate-, sulfite-, SLS/SLES-, petroleum- and GMO-free. The re-introduction also incorporates re-vamped marketing materials, complete with a new slogan, and a relaunch of AHAVAs Web site. Beauty Fashion met with Elana Drell Szyfer, CEO of AHAVA North America, to discuss the triumphs and challenges of re-launching the skincare brand. Beauty Fashion: Why was there a need to re-launch AHAVA, and what were the goals of transforming the brand? Elana Drell Szyfer: There were several different rationales for the re-launch and transformation of the brand. From a strategic point of view, North America is the key growth market for the brand for the next several years. To realize our growth objectives in the North American market, we needed to elevate the brands position and strengthen the communication of the brands unique story, proprietary ingredients and point of difference. Streamlining the product line-up, re-designing the packaging and marketing materials and creating a new product architecture were the outcomes we chose to support these objectives. In addition, we wanted to more clearly communicate with the consumer about the natural and skin-friendly orientation of our line, which comes from one of the worlds natural wonders, the Dead Sea, and incorporates the natural elements of the environment around it coupled with high performance skincare ingredients. Therefore, we
F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 2 /

/ B E A U T Y FA S H I O N

REBORN
chose to re-formulate the line to be free of parabens, sulfates, and GMOs. We started to promote the fact that we dont test on animals and that our packaging is recyclable. Finally, while we are known for body, we are actually a full service line of products for Face Care, Body Care and Sun Care. Through the re-launch, we have also taken the opportunity to strengthen our face portfolio, organize our facial skincare line by key customer concern and add two new ranges of anti-aging products. BF: What has been the consumer response from the re-branding? EDS: Honestly, at first the customer was confused and concerned. The packaging was such a departure that she was confused and concerned that we had taken away her favorite products and changed the formulas drastically. For the first eight weeks or so, both online and in-store, the customer was lost. What we did to help address this situation was a lot of education. We used conversion charts from the old line to the new line in our merchandising at point-of-sale and online. We kept the old line in a section called last chance on our Web site. After about two months, however, we started to see a major turnaround in the business. New consumers started to take notice of our new look, and loyal customers found their products and were happy with the consistent high quality performance we have always delivered. We were also doing a great deal of direct sampling and public relations to talk about the brand, and the two actions together started to have traction. Consumers have now had a very strong, positive reaction to the re-branding, and its bringing a lot of new consumers to the brand. Our retail results are the proof to this pudding. BF: Have there been any notable changes in AHAVAs sales numbers since the re-launch? EDS: Yes, we are seeing very high, double-digit growth in many of our key accounts including Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, ULTA, Blue Mercury and Beauty 360 among them. We had the most successful second half and holiday season in our history. BF: Last year, AHAVA debuted its new tagline, My Skin Reborn. How has the new slogan resonated with the customer? EDS: The slogan was ideated to convey the feeling that your skin has after it has been immersed in the magical waters of the Dead Sea. As most consumers dont have the good fortune (and time) to have exposure to the Dead Sea regularly, we wanted to articulate what that experience feels like for your skin. The jury is still out on how the customer is reacting to the tagline specifically, and if she understands it. We have however started working with a wonderful new agency to help us continue to do strategic work to strengthen our ability to communicate our brand story and creative work to demonstrate it visually and verbally in the clearest way possible to the consumer. The agency, Agence Air, is an expert in this type of work, and our goal is to continue to evolve the brand to achieve success both in North America and around the world. BF: The updated products were first introduced on HSN in March 2011; what has been the experience of selling through this channel? How has the HSN customer reacted to the re-launch? EDS: HSN is an important vehicle for the brand. Last year, we launched the new brand first on HSN and gave them all new launches first, as a way to build consumer awareness across all channels via the high visibility of HSN to over 70MM viewers. In addition, for a brand that comes from a specific place and has a unique and authentic story, HSN is the perfect venture to share pictures of the region and tell the story of its magic and proprietary minerals and their performance on the skin. We had our biggest year in our four-year history of being on HSN. They have been wonderful, nurturing and supportive partners. The customers have now acclimated to our new look, and they are loving our special offers on favorite existing products and coming to expect that they see our new items first. BF: What are AHAVAs digital initiatives for the upcoming year? EDS: AHAVAs digital initiatives over the course of 2012 are focusing on a few things: 1. Getting to know our online customers one-on-one in order to give them what they need, when they need it, in their daily skincare lives. Well be launching a mobile site, a new custom skincare regimen creator, specialized preference options for email subscribers, wish lists and rewards for brand loyalists, additional video and skincare tips and much more.

KAPLAN MD Skincare Delivers Results At Bergdorf Goodman
n January 20, Stuart H. Kaplan, M.D., Creator & Founder of KAPLAN MD Skincare, made a personal appearance at Bergdorf Goodman showcasing his comprehensive line of skincare products. The Beverly Hills-based Dermatologist met with customers at the Manhattan specialty store to conduct skin consultations and present his collection. I truly felt a partnership between my team, the cosmetics department and Bergdorfs entire corporate staff, said Dr. Kaplan. I was also pleased that so many of my New York patients came to support me. Prior to the event, Bergdorf Goodman notified their VIP customers about the PA while Dr. Kaplan reached out to his bi-coastal patients. KAPLAN MD fills a niche in our assortment at Bergdorf Goodman for a serious, yet luxurious skincare line backed by the authority of a highly accomplished Dermatologist, said Aja Passero, SVP/GMM Beauty for Bergdorf Goodman. With the brands unique combination of prize-winning technology

and pharmaceutical grade ingredients, we believe it provides a complete balanced diet for the skin, and look forward to sharing it with our customers. The day was considered a success for Dr. Kaplan and his team. He attributed this to the reaction he received from speaking to the customers at Bergdorf Goodman. The customers were absolutely enraptured and amazed at the science behind the products. Especially when I explained the three causes of skin aging [chronological aging, environmental damage and natural hormonal progression] and how they affect both men and women from the day we are born, noted Dr. Kaplan. Preceding the introduction of KAPLAN MD Skincare into Bergdorf Goodman, which officially made its debut at the end of November 2011, Dr. Kaplan trained the entire beauty floorincluding two dedicated product specialists for his collection. During the training session, Dr. Kaplan explained the science behind each product as well as his motivation to create a skincare line. We are very fortunate to have such a great sales team at Bergdorf Goodman, he said. When training the team, it was most important to teach the specialists the unique aspects of the line and explain what distinguishes these products from other skincare lines. KAPLAN MD Skincare was founded eight years ago, a result of Dr. Kaplan, who has been in practice for 25 years, working to fill a void in the selection of skincare products. While Dr. Kaplan was examining the products that were available for his patients, he found that many contained unnecessary fillers and only one or two hero ingredients

Suppliers Strategize For New Business Challenges


Beauty Fashion asked leading suppliers to the beauty industry what they believe will be the greatest challenges and opportunities they foresee in pursuing their business this year. Here are their comments.
Diane Crecca Senior Vice President Sales, Marketing & Business Development Arcade Marketing
Arcade sees three major opportunities for 2012all centered on helping our customers go to market: C o n t i n u i n g t o i n n ova t e t h e sampling solutions we offer our customers, allowing them to build their brands, including stretching our geographical reach to service global and local brands with local production in the growing Asian and Latin American markets. Second, addressing our customers needs to extend the delivery channels for samples, including as well the growing numbers of consumers who engage in online shopping and social media. Third, striving to meet increasingly shorter turnarounds which are the new normal. The good news is that they are all achievable.

John Rush Vice President of Sales & New Business Development Custom Essence
Custom Essence remains one of a handful of privately-held, familyowned enterprises in a rapidly consolidating industry. Our size and the character of our ownership permit us to move quickly, decisively, authoritatively, efficiently and effectively. In a world that is moving at warp speed, we can accommodate our clients needs by being smart and responsive. We see great opportunity in todays environment.

the lab and manufacturing. But the final result offers a unique and sustainable product.

Dr. Ferdinand Storp General Manager drom Fragrances International


Back to blood, sweat and tears. The hiding behind cleaned-up fragrance tests and halftrue focus groups is not real perfumery. This is scared-cat perfumery. Forget the focus groups. The biggest challenge will be to convince the customers that fragrance is the combination of art, technique and exploring the unthinkable.

Wendy Chang Executive Vice President Marketing & Product Development Dermaceutical Laboratories
The beauty industry is ever evolving, and the best way to stay current is by driving new innovation and technology. We recently collaborated with a high profile company, Evonik, to develop a unique product called Powder to Cream. It is the perfect product which looks like a loose powder and transforms to a cream upon touch. This innovation changes the way we view traditional powders and creams. By merging these two systems, we can create new applications for the skin, body, and hair care and cosmeceutical market. This new product innovation took a lot of correcting and fine tuning in

Jerry Vittoria President Fine Fragrance, North America Firmenich


The consumer in the US is talking with her wallet; across many categories she is buying again and buying quality. With fragrance, she knows when she smells it. She perceives a true value proposition. In our industrys efforts to cut costs, we have hurt this consumers perceived value. So our biggest challenge is that we need to refocus on quality and accept that to create real quality, we need to pay more for it. There are many reasons for this, including that our industry is now competing for ever scarcer and more costly resources. I am absolutely positive the consumer will reward those who take such steps.
(Continued on page 46)

Chris Young President C+N Packaging


Raw material cost increases continue to put pressure on margins. However, the bigger issue will be whether the consumer will increase her spending and create growth. If we are to believe early indicators of consumer purchasing trends in 4th quarter 2011, we expect modest growth in 2012.

he Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) meeting, the premier event for leaders in the personal care industry, will convene in Naples, Florida this year from February 22-24 at the Ritz-Carlton. Each year, beauty industry leaders come together at this meeting to discuss issues facing the industry and explore new trends and opportunities ahead, said Dan Brestle, Chairman of the PCPC Board of Directors. The meeting also provides an opportunity for suppliers and beauty magazine representatives to meet with executives from member companies, arguably one of the few meetings that brings these diverse groups together in one place. This years meeting will focus on the challenges of international business, address legislative and regulatory issues and explore the latest in product innovation. Registration for this years meeting is anticipated to increase from the previous year. At press time, numbers were tracking up 10% over last year. As the leading trade association for the cosmetic and personal care industry, PCPC is comprised of more than 600 member companies. We are the voice on scientific, legal, regulatory, legislative and international issues for our industry, stated Lezlee Westine, President and CEO of PCPC. The Council [works] to keep the industry informed on ingredient safety, nomenclature, regulation by the US Food & Drug Administration and the varying requirements for selling cosmetic and personal care products globally. For the upcoming year, Ms. Westine explained that there are three primary goals for the Council. In 2012, PCPC will work towards strengthening its legislative advocacy and regulatory policy positions, enhance its comprehensive, science-based Safe Cosmetics Alliance program as well as increase its global access for member companies by working towards harmonization of regulation, reducing trade barriers and including the global regulatory and trade environment, said Ms. Westine. In order to offer global consumers the safe, innovative products they have come to depend on, we require transparent and consistent regulations in every market in which we do business. The 2012 meeting will center on the theme Brand New Attitude. The Brand New Attitude is a renewed recognition that we are one industry, and we are all better off when we work together, noted Art Spiro, Executive Vice President Fragrance Innovation, Elizabeth Arden and PCPC Annual Meeting Planning Committee Chair. For anyone who has been attending the Annual Meeting over the PCPCs Lezlee Westine PCPCs Dan Brestle PCPCs Art Spiro past several years, you have witnessed the Brand New Attitude. The meeting is now streamlined, focusing on targeted prioritiesexpanding industry knowledge and innovation, creating unique business opportunities and advancing the industrys policy objectives. This years meeting will include well-received segments from years past while introducing several new elements into the schedule. We are continuing the Policy Summit [on February 22] which received high marks from attendees last year. This session is a great opportunity for senior executives to hear about critical issues facing our industry and will facilitate discussions for viable solutions, shared Mr. Spiro. The International Association Meeting will feature a keynote address by Neal Flieger, Chairman of StrategyOne, revealing the results of the 2012 Edelman Trust Barometer, a 23-country study of consumer attitudes towards trust in business, government, NGOs and media. Innovation will be explored on February 23 with keynote speaker, Jeremy Gutsche, Founder of trendhunter.com, followed by a crossindustry panel that will focus on the latest trends within the industry. Mr. Spiro noted that there will be a media-focused panel on February 24 with speakers from diverse and nontraditional markets. Given that 2012 is an election year, we are incorporating a bit of politics and punditry, he said. This panel will feature renowned DC Political Analysts, Charlie Cook and Stuart Rothenberg, who will offer their insights into Novembers elections. The Council meetings panel discussions present the most pertinent information that encourages dialogue between attendees.

HOT TOPIC:
Natural Ingredients In Beauty Products
How do beauty companies choose natural or man-made ingredients? At P&G Beauty & Grooming, our main focus is on developing products that women love to use. We evaluate a wide range of natural and man-made ingredients for formulas and make sure all ingredients are safe for people and the environmentregardless of their source. Some people say that natural ingredients are purer, safer and more sustainable than man-made ingredients, but is that really true? In reality, its not possible to make generalizations about all natural ingredients compared with all man-made ingredientseach one must be tested and evaluated before used. However, there are a few important points to consider: Jenny Rushmore Scott Heid, Ph.D. Natural ingredients are more complex and may be less pure. Did you know most plants contain thousands or even millions of individual chemicals? That means we pay close attention to using natural ingredients because their quality can change depending on factors like harvest times and soil conditions. In contrast, man-made ingredients can be tightly controlled for consistency and purity and in some cases can be safer alternatives. For example, certain plant extracts like gums can contain allergenic proteins, which wouldnt be present in man-made ingredients. Safety and natural ingredients dont always go together. Despite what you might first think, an ingredients source does not determine its safety; for instance, poison ivy extract wouldnt be used in a product just because its natural! In fact, everything has a safe and unsafe range, whether its water, vitamins or beauty product ingredientsnatural or not. Even eating too many carrots can turn skin orange. The safety scientists at P&G use the same time-tested methods employed by regulatory agencies to ensure any product ingredient is well within its safe range, for both people and the environment. Natural ingredients arent always more sustainable than man-made. The most sustainable product ingredients and materials can be either natural or man-made, depending on the situation. For instance, a flower might be endangered, so using it in a formulation would be unsustainable. Sometimes its also possible to get greater product benefits with man-made ingredients, which use less energy and fewer resources. Other times, renewable natural ingredients can be a more sustainable alternative: for instance, Pantene Nature Fusion is now using renewable sugarcane-derived plastic to replace traditional petroleum plastic in its bottles. For more information on natural ingredients and safety, check out FDAs website: fda.gov/Cosmetics/ProductandIngredientSafety/ProductInformation/ucm203078.htm.

HISPANIC CONSUMER
osmetic Executive Women (CEW) hosted its premiere Women & Men in Beauty Series event on January 19 at the Harmonie Club in New York City. The panel discussion, entitled Marketing Beauty to the Hispanic Consumer, featured Linda Levy, Vice President, Merchandise Marketing, Cosmetics & Fragrances, Macys Inc.; Alexandra Vegas, Director of the Multicultural Business Development Organization, Procter & Gamble and Graciela Eleta, Senior Vice President, Client Development Group, Univision Communications, Inc. exploring how to connect to the Hispanic shopper. With the spending power of the HispanicAmerican consumer estimated around $1.2 Univisions Graciela Eleta with Macys Linda Levy and Alexandra Vegas of P&G trillion, according to Univision, a comprehensive understanding of this segment is crucial. At Macys, our data shows that Hispanics outpace every other consumer segment that comes through our doors, and our Hispanic customers over-index in the makeup and fragrance category, informed Ms. Levy. We look at our stores on a door level to make sure that we offer the right products and selection for our customers. She added that Macys pays close attention to the sell-through in its doors, making sure its product offerings are what the customers wantholding especially true for the cosmetics, skincare and fragrance categories. Identifying the needs and recognizing consumer habits of the Hispanic segment remain equally imperative for personal care brands. The Hispanic beauty routine starts early, especially for young girls with their Quinceaeras, said Ms. Vegas. Winning her over early on is critical for sustainable growth. She also informed that Hispanics will typically go the extra mile in the beauty category and are more inclined to splurge on personal care products. Reinforcing the sentiment, Ms. Eleta added, For Hispanics, cosmetics are all about the and not the orits the lipstick and the lip gloss; the eyeshadow and the eyeliner. She later revealed that Hispanics have a preference for products that use natural ingredients, which hark back to the roots of their heritage.

Sephoras New Apparel For All Cast Members


ephoras Sharon Rothstein, Senior Vice President of Marketing, believed it was time that the Cast Members got a new look. At Sephora, were constantly evolving and elevating the store experience, and we felt our cast costume, which hasnt changed since 2001, didnt accurately reflect the Sephora of today. Sephoras goal was to align the look of its store cast with the modern, fashion-forward look and product selection that is featured in all of Sephoras stores. Prabal Gurung, the CFDA-award-winning fashion Designer, was chosen to give Sephoras Cast Members a new look. Mr. Gurung is regarded by his peers as bringing fresh, unexpected elements to timeless designs. Im not a Designer who makes trendy clothes . . . the only trend that is universal is that women want to feel beautiful, he shared. Thats what The new costumes for Sephoras Cast Members designed by Prabal Gurung guides my work. Ms. Rothstein declared, We immediately zeroed in on Prabal because his collections embodied the perfect mix of modern, youthful design, classic tailoring and accessible styling that we were looking for. Prabal has the ability to design clothes that are modern and cool yet accessible to all women. He reflects Sephoras ideal of client-inspired beauty, and we are so thrilled to have been able to do this project with him. Prabal delivered a stylish selection of pieces that fulfilled the needs of our staff. He is a true partner that understood our vision and could interpret the Sephora brand into a costume design. Mr. Gurung explained, My intention was to reflect the style and playfulness of shopping in a Sephora store but to also make sure [the clothes] would be functional in such a fast-paced environment. I wanted the Cast Members to be in uniforms that make them feel good, look great and ultimately [help them] do their jobs better. The dresses incorporate one of Mr. Gurungs favorite design elementsa flash of vibrant red. The womens pant suit and the separates for men give a sleeker, more tailored look. For women, we offer a tunic that can be worn over tights or black pants and a fitted blazer, pants and bowed blouse combination that looks polished and feminine, Ms. Rothstein explained. Men can top black pants with their choice of either a short-sleeved polo shirt or long-sleeved dress shirt, with or without the sweater. The pieces have been created in our signature brand code colors of black and red to make the new costumes unmistakably Sephora. The Cast Members costumes are made of polyester, except for the womens and mens button-up shirts, which are a polyester/cotton blend. The costumes have special features that help them to work more efficiently. The tunic and pants for both women and men have pockets, in addition to the brush belts the Makeup Artists are provided for their tools. Ms. Rothstein reports, We have parameters around how to wear the newly designed costume combinations based on the casts selections, and we require closed-toe shoes with the uniforms. At Sephora, we have and will always encourage creative expression with hair and makeup amongst our cast, as reflected in our stores throughout North America and Latin America. The new costumes for women and men will be in each US Sephora store in April. BF

Aided by the collective thinking of our experts in the Rx company, we wanted to come out with clinically-substantiated, significant improvements to what is currently available to consumers. BF: How are you positioning Elayda in the skincare category, and what are its unique points of difference? JN: The Elayda line is unique because it combines ingredients that were previously incompatible and delivers these ingredients at higher, more effective levels to provide significantly better anti-aging results. Weve reapplied the highly emollient foam ingredient delivery technology from our Rx companyHyTrate Foamon Elayda to provide higher levels of active ingredients with lower irritation. The non-aqueous foam delivery system also gives these ingredients greater stability, enabling us to use purer, more active ingredients that are faster acting and more effective. With our step-up Elayda skincare program, consumers can progress to increasingly higher levels of actives over time as their skin becomes acclimated to ingredients such as retinols, niacinamides, hydroquinones and botanicals, for increasingly better results. Consumers typically start at Level 1. Level 1 delivers ingredient levels that are already higher than most consumer products and is designed to deliver dramatic improvements quickly. Then, every sixty days, consumers can advance to the next Level, which provides higher concentrations of hard-working anti-aging ingredients. This system is easily personalized, and consumers are encouraged to start at a level and advance at a rate that would be most beneficial for their skin type and experience. The dual thrust of the Elayda line allows consumers to step up to significantly higher levels of actives, so they not only get fast results, but their skin continuously improves over time.

NPD REVIEWS 2011 BEAUTY SALES

he NPD Group divulged U.S. and global prestige beauty sales for 2011 at its annual Hot off the Press event at New York Citys Plaza Hotel on January 31, which is a joint presentation with The Fragrance Foundation. It was the beauty industrys first look at 2011 year-end results for skincare, makeup and fragrance. In 2011, skincare and fragrance sold in U.S. department stores both posted double-digit dollar growths of 14% and 11% respectively, while makeup grew a healthy 9%, compared to 2010. In the U.S., U.K. and China, prestige beauty is enjoying one of the most robust sales periods ever, reported Karen Grant, Vice President and Senior Global Industry Analyst, The NPD Group. In the U.S., for example, beauty sales in both the mass and prestige channels were positive month after month in 2011. While both channels were positive, prestige beauty reigned supreme. From the stellar increases in prestige skincare to the continued gains in makeup, to the double-digit rebound of fragrance, prestige beauty is experiencing a time of unprecedented growth. In continental Europe, Ms. Grant continued, where the prestige market is more mature, growth is more tempered and performance among the categories has not been as dynamic as in the U.S. or U.K., but nonetheless, prestige beauty managed to flourish thanks to brand media investment, bigger in-store animation and price promotions. In addition, according to SymphonyIRI Group, Inc.s research, the U.S. Food/Drug/Mass channel experienced a 4% increase in sales for total beauty in 2011, versus 2010. Makeup sales posted the biggest increase at 8%, followed by skincare at 3%, while fragrance sales declined 5% in dollar sales, compared to 2010. In National Chain stores, fragrance sales grew 5%.

2. Providing a beautiful, relaxing and naturally renewing environment in all of our online channels. We will be going beyond launching new products and instead inviting our visitors to really experience our latest innovations in a visual way; from unique ingredient stories to engaging in daily tips, we want our customers to be a part of our journey with each new product. BF: What is the brands social media strategy? EDS: Our social media strategy is really just one thing: listening. We want to hear what our fans and followers have to say and act on it. And act quickly. If what were saying isnt resonating, we want to bring the conversation to them by asking questions and engaging in what they want to talk about right now. Along with our overall digital initiatives, we want to bring a sense of beauty, renewal and relevance into our social media channels. BF: In what countries is AHAVA currently available? Which markets might be the right fit for expansion? EDS: AHAVA is currently sold in 33 countries worldwide. We are the leading local brand in Israel and have 9 freestanding stores there, in addition to an exclusive distribution agreement with the retailer Super-Pharm, a Shoppers Drug Mart like concept where all Western Prestige Brands are sold. We are sold throughout Europe and can be found at Sephora, KaDeWe and other leading European chains and independent retailers. Outside of North American expansion, key growth markets for the brand include several Eastern European countries. We are currently also planning our further Asian expansiontoday the brand has six stores in Singapore and a presence in Japan. BF: What are some of the plans for the future development of the brand? EDS: Let me answer that in four parts: BRAND Our first goal is to ensure that we are continuing on the path we set out on last year, which is elevating our position in North America and strengthening the brands story to communicate our point of difference. We maintain dedicated to stay on this course and as part of that quest will be continuing to explore new communication vehiclesespecially in the second half of the year. We have incredible opportunity to raise our brands awareness and want to make sure that, as we raise awareness, consumers walk away understanding the brand and its unique story and performance based on point of difference, focused around the unique skincare properties of the minerals from the Dead Sea. DISTRIBUTION What goes hand in hand with our growth strategy is the need to increase the business in both our current distribution and seek some new distribution. Our priority channels are specialty and department stores and direct-to-consumer ahavaus.com; direct TV and beauty dot-coms. TEAM As part of our North American growth strategy, we will be adding additional staff to our current teamnearly doubling our number of employees by the end of 2012. PRODUCT While we have a full range of face and body products, we will be strategically rounding out the product line where gaps occur and forging new ground with unique technological discoveries. For example, this spring, we are introducing a new eye cream in the Extreme line, which was launched in the fall. Extreme Eye Cream addresses lines, wrinkles and firming around the entire eye area from brow to under eye. For body, we are bringing to market something that consumers have been asking for, for yearsscented body lotions to accompany our ever popular Mineral Botanic Cream washes. In addition, we are launching a new mens linefirst with key influencers and then as an exclusive with Beauty Brands. Future developments include additions for sensitive skin, one of our technological expertise, and body firming. In addition, this spring we have worked with the very hot accessory Designer Rebecca Minkoff on a major late spring/early summer co-branded promotion. Look for it in our key accounts like ULTA, Lord & Taylor and Nordstrom. BF

Suppliers Strategize For New Business Challenges


(continued from page 30)

Christoph Gerberding President and Chief Executive Officer Fragrance Resources


At Fragrance Resources, we are afforded the luxury of being a familyowned and operated global fragrance destination. Our challenge in working with a highly focused list of partners is to help them identify new fragrance opportunities in a crowded, confusing arena. Simply put, Fragrance Resources challenge is selling more than just fragrance.

Christophe de Villeple Vice President of Fine Fragrance and Beauty Care Worldwide International Flavors & Fragrances
IFF continues to explore our proprietary consumer segmentation focusing on how personal values drive fragrance choice around the world. Wi t h a c o n s t a n t l y e vo l v i n g consumer it is important that we continue to emotionally engage and delight them through our creativity, expertise and passion.

Flexibility is key. Maesa has access to a worldwide supply chain and provides solutions to these complex supply chain demands.

Frederic Jacques Vice President Fine Fragrance North America Mane


As the Fine Fragrance marketplace continues to be overcrowded, it is imperative that new product launches have a meaningful difference that consumers can feel and perceive. At Mane, we strive to add our boutique sensibility with sustainable ingredients and strong consumer insight to every new fragrance we create, so that it touches the consumer more instinctually and emotionally, while providing a unique and desirable olfactive experience. We represent a creative alternative and strongly believe that we are a necessity more than ever before and are totally ready to challenge the normal way to create fragrances in this highly unusual, competitive market.

Cosimo Policastro Executive Vice President Fine Fragrances Givaudan


We see two distinct challenges that we are focused on for 2012. First, to continue to manage our raw material supply, specifically to ensure a continuous and reliable supply of quality raw materials, particularly naturals, at prices we can work with to create fragrances that exceed the markets expectations for innovation and creativity. Our second challenge is to capitalize on the growth potential in both emerging and developed markets. We believe this can only be accomplished through greater insights into these highly dynamic markets. Key word is dynamic, as these markets are changing rapidly; consequently, we must be ahead of the market and consumer dynamics in order to fully capitalize on their potential.

Carl Lombardi President Lombardi Design & Manufacturing


As much as things change, the challenge remains the same. How do you continue to innovate and deliver high quality packaging, at a competitive price with shortened lead times on a global platform? Effectively utilize the technological advancements in the areas of design, manufacturing and operating systems to manage these requirements. The companies that do that effectively will continue to grow and lead the industry forward.

Kevin Marshall Vice President/ Creative Director Marc Rosen Associates


Brands will need to work hard to create Meaningful Points of Differentiation this year. As consumers begin to spend again, theyll do so with a renewed eye towards quality, efficacy and meaningful, tangible brand attributes. Products that deliver exceptional experiences and out-perform their competition will resonate and command customer attention.

Gregory Mager Founder & Co-Chairman Maesa


We see an everincreasing demand for novelty in the beauty market, so speed-to-market has been a great challenge. Customers expect new launches and collections several times a year.

Franois Sabat Sales and Market General Manager Pochet du Courval Gerald Walle President Pochet of America
The supply chain in the fragrance industry has changed dramatically during the last three years. The advent and success of outsourcing puts greater demands on suppliers for flexibility, quality and agility, and shorter lead times pose great challenges to heavy industries like glass making. The trend towards more sophisticated packaging and integrated projects challenges the planning, procurement and engineering of all the players involved. The Pochet Group, which offers a unique combination of glass, plastics and metal, along with assembling operations capacity, has been making large investments to meet those challenges. At Pochet du Courval, the glass division, all of our facilities now operate on the same ERP. We are increasing capacity in many areas and developing our expertise and equipment for the execution of turnkey projects, which we are coordinating more effectively with our sister companies, Solev and Qualipac. Our ambition in the industry is definitely to deliver an increased added value with consistency to our customers within a shorter lead time, while facing a market still plagued by economic uncertainty. As a family-owned company with a long-term vision, Pochet can face the challenge with serenity thanks to its strong financial base.

Regulatory Commission are on a witch hunt against fragrances. It is hoped that they will give us a little breathing room and stop making everyone believe that nature is our worst enemy. We as fragrance houses must keep in mind the role of fragrance the desire to seduce while being uniqueotherwise, fragrance will become a mere commodity and lose all its magic.

Paul Ireland Senior Vice President and General Manager, Fragrance Division Takasago
Internal demand in fast growing, developing markets for key ingredients has increased, putting pressure on supplies, particularly in developed markets. Reduction of manufacturers has created availability issues of key raw materials. The US dollars weakness continues to be of concern. Inflationary pressures within key economies, such as China, are a key cost driver for many raw materials.

Shhrazade Chamlou Vice President Sales + Marketing SGD North America


The fragrance market rebounded quite strongly in 2011, but one of the greatest challenges in 2012 is going to be the prospect of a double-dip global recession and further slowdown of consumer spending. More than ever before, fragrances will need to differentiate from the crowd with greater emphasis on the personalization of brands. For this reason SGD will continue to focus on innovation and devote more resources to this effort, especially in the decoration technologies where there was a strong demand in 2011.

Jack Corley Executive Vice President Trilogy Fragrances LLC


I believe the greatest challenge impacting the cosmetic supply side this year is The Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011 (H.R.2359). Introduced on June 24, 2011 by Reps. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., (H.R.2359) is designed to give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authority to ensure that personal care products are free of harmful ingredients and that ingredients are fully disclosed.

Xavier Adnet Vice President Sales Stoelzle USA


Reactivity is going to be key. We are facing a lot of pressure to reduce lead-time on existing and new businesses. The main strength of Stoelzle is the flexibility. Since we are operating with multi-production sites, we can move the tools from one factory to another and reduce the lead-times along with the run size to be more reactive. The fact that we are fully integrated (glass and decoration) gives us a competitive edge.

The heritage of Ungerer & Company is based on an entrepreneurial spirit combined with the ability to maintain long-standing relationships as well as foster new relationships.

While providing a desirable assortment is necessary, it is also vital for companies to connect with the consumer in a meaningful way. Ms. Vegas discussed the recent launch of orgullosa.com, a Web site created by P&G that was designed specifically for Hispanic women. The site provides beauty, lifestyle and household guidance while featuring the companys brands. Not only does it serve as a virtual community for its members, but the site allows for P&G to build a trust with its customers.

Furthermore, in doors where Spanish is predominately spoken, though not required, BAs are often bilingual. It is key to understand how to communicate with the Hispanic customer. We must embrace the community, as it is our biggest opportunity for the next few years.

Ms. Vegas agreed that advertisements must be representative, but it is best when they are inclusive. She stated that it is a win when the Hispanic consumer relates to an advertisement as well as when it attracts those outside of the segment. Ms. Vegas referred to recent campaigns with Sofia Vergara and Eva Mendes as carrying universal appeal. The Actresses are brand ambassadors for COVERGIRL and Pantene, respectively. Celebrity endorsements are 10 times more meaningful for Hispanic consumers, said Ms. Eleta, an additional boost for companies targeting a culture that already takes great pride in its personal care routine and is willing to spend the money.

NUGENT HELMS DERM-DRIVEN ELAYDA


(continued from page 36)

MARC ROSEN AUTHORS BOOK ON GLAMOUR


(continued from page 38)

BF: How is Continuous Results by Elayda distributed, and who is the target customer? JN: We are using the advantages of direct response to distribute Continuous Results by Elayda. Top leaders in dermatology recommend these products to their patients but do not prescribe them nor sell them out of their offices. However, we have a Physicians Dispense company that is prepared to offer an even more professional level of products to their patients. We are also looking at alternative direct response avenues as well as international markets. The products range in price from $39.00 to $49.00 per month for a 2-month supply. The line appeals to a broad target audience because you can grow with the line, with customers ranging in age from low twenties to the fifties. BF: How are you promoting Continuous Results by Elayda? JN: We are using several vehicles for getting out the message. Our infomercial in its long form of 28 minutes is being exposed on national media. Were also experimenting with short form commercials in more targeted media. Im a firm believer in public relations, and we have had a phenomenal response from the Beauty Editors. I believe in consumer loyalty and promoting repeat users. We have a national customer outreach program, which we are in the process of broadly expanding. We ask them about their initial reaction to the products, the difficulties they see and how we can help them. If, at the end of the day they are not satisfied, we make it easy for them to return their product for a full refund. We quickly follow up with these consumers to better understand how we could have improved their experience with the product and brand. BF: How are you positioning the company for future growth? JN: This unique structure of a pure, skincare-focused company with multiple distribution channels is what hockey players call multiple shots on goal. We are planning on being successful in the long term in each one of our three companies. An IPO is certainly a possibility. Were confident that we are creating a company of significant value with multiple opportunities. BF

Moving on to Elizabeth Arden, where he spent ten years, Mr. Rosen designed many memorable flacons, including KL Karl Lagerfeld, which is the image for his books jacket. The fana weapon of flirtation and one that is often featured in Karl Lagerfelds design culture became the inspiration for the flacon. The bottle won Mr. Rosen his first FiFi Award in 1983.

Fendi For Women by Fendi/Elizabeth Arden

Woven throughout the book are the Authors recollections of the glamour that was inherent in the beauty business during the last century. Photos of launches and the accounts of his associations with some of the beauty and fashion industries most famous names as well as societys beautiful people bring the Glamour Icons to life. In the chapter on A Designers Eye: Icons of the Past, Mr. Rosen showcases some of the most famous and iconic perfume bottles of the 20th century. The book also features a Foreword by Harold Koda, Curator In Charge, The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as an interview with Mr. Rosen conducted by Hamish Bowles, VOGUE magazines Editor-at-Large. Mr. Rosen believes that the fragrance bottle is the silent salesman. He maintains that fragrance gives us that momentary uplifting feeling of hope, of inspiration and aspiration. We need that aura of glamour [now] more than ever. Published by Antique Collectors Club, Glamour Icons: Perfume Bottle Design is now available at Barnes & Noble, Rizzoli, the gift shops of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art and Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, Bergdorf Goodmans Fragrance Department, select Neiman Marcus stores, amazon.com and bloomingdales.com. The Authors proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to The Marc Rosen Scholarship and Educational Fund for Graduate Package Design at Pratt Institute. BF
