The Perfume & Beauty Industry | Small Business
By

The perfume and cosmetics industry is a tough market for small businesses, where 75 percent of the industry’s revenue goes to the top 50 companies, according to Hoovers. But there is room for smaller competitors when you concentrate on your local market and provide exceptional customer service. Pay attention to consumer spending, fashion trends and local demographics to succeed against the giants.

Create Specialty Market

While the big cosmetic manufacturers can supply consumers with a multitude of products in a variety of locations, they often can’t serve the niche markets that prefer customized beauty products and one-of-a-kind scents. As a small business owner, seek out perfume designers and local facial cream producers and give them an avenue to create sales. Whether you own a retail boutique or a salon, provide shelf space for specialty items that can’t be purchased anywhere else. Unique products that provide consumers with the results they

Does Every Makeup Brand Need a Skin Care Line? | BoF Professional, The Business of Beauty, News & Analysis
By

When makeup label Hourglass quietly launched a moisturiser and serum seven years ago, the plan was never to make skin care a focus, said founder and chief executive Carisa Janes.

But the two items have proven to be steady sellers, despite small production runs and narrower distribution than Hourglass’ main colour line. Now, with the pandemic fuelling a skin care boom, the brand is adding more products in the category, including a cleanser and an eye cream. Janes said she wants skin care to someday make up half of her company’s business.

“We are putting as much attention and focus on skin care as we do colour cosmetics,” Janes said.

Hourglass isn’t the only cosmetics brand vying to become a skin care authority. Cover FX entered the category earlier this month, and Winky Lux is launching 10 skin care products this week. They join Morphe via its Morphe 2 label,

UK Retailing Shifts Further Online as Boohoo Buys Debenhams | Business News
By

By PAN PYLAS, Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — Around 25,000 U.K. retailing jobs remain under threat even as it emerged Monday that online fashion firm Boohoo has bought Debenhams, one of the country’s oldest department store chains, and rival ASOS confirmed it wants to pick up parts of Arcadia Group.

The developments illustrate the huge changes taking place in Britain’s retailing scene during the coronavirus pandemic. With shops selling non-essential items closed once again, many retail outlets, big and small, face the prospect of closing for good.

Boohoo’s acquisition of the Debenhams brand and website for 55 million pounds ($75 million) will see it turn a traditional retailing outlet into an online-only operation.

The Debenhams name will survive, but the 118 stores will close for good as Boohoo sees little value in them when so much shopping now takes place online, a shift that has been accelerated by the coronavirus
