Coty, Puig end North American distribution agreement

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK — Coty and Puig S.L., a fashion and fragrance company, have mutually decided not to renew their distribution agreement in North America, which expires June 30. This decision is the end to a six-year partnership.

"After the strong and collaborative partnership Coty has enjoyed with Puig over the past six years, we are now at the stage where we need to fully focus on our own portfolio, which has grown bigger and stronger over the past years," stated Michele Scannavini, CEO of Coty Inc. "We are all proud of the great work we’ve done and results achieved with the Puig business, and we wish the company continued success in the future."

As a result of this decision, Coty Prestige will assume selling responsibility for the Coty Beauty brands that are distributed in prestige retailers, which are currently sold by a third party distributor.

"Puig is very appreciative of the support and the very positive results of the collaboration with Coty in the U.S. and Canada over the past years," stated Marc Puig, chairman and CEO of Puig. "Our business has more than doubled during this period. As a result the time has come for Puig to redefine a new approach to pursue growth in the North American markets."

Mustela develops new sun care products for babies

BY Antoinette Alexander

NEW YORK — Mustela, a European skin care and stretch marks brand, recently introduced three products in a sun care range for babies.

The new Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Lotion and Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Stick are tested under the most recent FDA requirements for sunscreen and have both been awarded the Melanoma International Foundation’s Seal of Approval, the company stated.


Mustela’s formulations are 100% mineral, with naturally derived sunscreen filters titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.



Given that sunscreen application can be messy and even harder with a baby, the Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Stick comes in an easy-to-use stick form. Ideal for travel, the stick can be taken anywhere for touch ups on those places where children tend to sweat or gain more sun exposure, such as the nose and cheeks, or for unexpected time spent outdoors.



For those times when a baby’s skin needs extra hydration and soothing, Mustela has developed the After Sun Hydrating Spray with jojoba oil and cupuacu butter.



The products launch in limited retail outlets in February and will be widely available in May.
