« Chemical Firms Confront Low Prices And A Weak Agriculture Market »- Chemical & Engineering News

1446156801184« Leaders plan to meet challenges with restructuring, cost-cutting- Third-quarter results for the chemical industry show firms are struggling to sell products in the face of weak global growth, cheap oil, and a strong dollar. Those with agriculture businesses have particular problems, and at least two firms—Dow Chemical and DuPont—are considering deals to solve them. Sales withered as inexpensive energy put downward pressure on prices and lackluster demand dampened volumes in many businesses. Low crop prices made for an unusually bleak season for agriculture at Dow, DuPont, and BASF. And chemical executives say they expect this climate to continue, possibly through 2017.( …) »

« Chiffre D’affaires En Baisse De 3 % Pour Les Engrais En France »-Info Chimie

9PKV3FW61_web« L’Union des industries de la fertilisation (Unifa) a présenté mi-octobre le bilan de sa campagne 2014-2015. Résultat : une légère baisse des livraisons d’engrais et d’amendements minéraux basiques a été constatée par rapport à l’année précédente. Le chiffre d’affaires du secteur, généré par les 50 adhérents de l’Unifa, affiche un recul de 3 %, à environ 3 milliards d’euros. Les tonnages livrés en engrais restent stables sur un an, à 9,2 millions de tonnes (+2,5 % par rapport à la moyenne des trois dernières campagnes) tandis que les amendements minéraux basiques chutent de 5 % passant à 2,8 Mt (- 7 % en moyenne sur les trois dernières campagnes). Un recul « à la fois lié aux conditions climatiques (difficultés pour l’épandage) mais également aux conditions économiques », souligne Gilles Poidevin, délégué général de l’Unifa. (…) »

« What We Know About How Neonicotinoids Affect Bees »- Science Daily

honey bees« A second summary in as many years on the scientific evidence about the effects of neonicotinoid pesticides on bees has been published by scientists. The research team was asked to update its findings by the chief scientific adviser of the United Kingdom government, which has banned the use of three neonicotinoid insecticides. Current evidence suggests that bumblebees and solitary bees are more severely affected by neonicotinoids than honeybees. (…) »

« Fragrance Trend: Marketing & Formulating Lifestyle Scents »- Cosmetics Design USA

« Consumers have outgrown signature scents and now wear perfumes appropriate to the occasion, event, or activity. Here, the team behind Pour Le Monde parfums tells Cosmetics Design what it all means for the industry.


“Fragrance wardrobe” is quickly becoming a term of art in the beauty business and among consumers. It’s no surprise then that millennials own on average five to eight fragrances, as Laren Stover reported in an item on

Wendi Berger, president of the 100 % natural fine fragrance company Pour Le Monde, anticipates that this trend will become the norm and, in fact, had lifestyle scents “in mind from day one” when she founded the company.(…) »

« The Race To Dominate India : Which Companies Are In Front ? »- Cosmetics Business

« Beauty sales in India look set to boom in the next decade – and the race for dominance is looking increasingly tight.
Mintel estimates India is projected to generate double-digit increases in skin care sales through to 2016 with facial skin care sales expected to exceed 15 % annually to 2018. Meanwhile, KPMG estimates jobs in the Indian beauty market are set to grow at a compound rate of 22 % every year to 2022.Even for a stalwart ‘local’ player such as Unilever, which has had deep roots in this highly price-sensitive market since 1888, there is tough competition. Estée Lauder has deepened its stake in Indian skin care and hair care brand Forest Essentials, while L’Oréal has beefed up its distribution presence, among other strategic business moves. (…) »

Beauty and Grooming Among the Culprits As P&G Post Big Sales Drop

« Procter & Gamble saw all of its categories post a double-digit drop in sales for the first quarter fiscal year 2016 due to weak demand and a strong dollar; and Beauty and Grooming were the biggest offenders.


Net sales for the quarter were $16.5 billion, a decrease of 12 % versus the prior year due primarily to significant foreign exchange impacts. Organic sales, excluding the impact of currency, divestitures and acquisitions, decreased 1 %.

The Ohio-based company, which gets almost two thirds of its revenue from markets outside North America, was also hurt by a nearly 13 % rise in the dollar against a host of major currencies in the past year.

With all categories seeing a dip, Grooming came off worst with a 14 % drop in net sales, with the Beauty segment, which was the subject of a huge divestment earlier in the year , the second worst with a 12 % decrease.

“Top-line results were soft, as expected, given significant foreign exchange impacts, our deliberate choices to exit unprofitable businesses and the early stage of the improvement plans we’re implementing in our largest categories and markets,” says Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer A.G. Lafley.

“We continue to make strong progress on productivity savings, which will fuel smart investments in top-line growth.”


The business unit to see the biggest drop was Grooming, which includes the Gillette and Braun brands.

Weaker demand in Blades & Razors due to competitive activity and previous fiscal year price increases were the main factors here, along with negative geographic and product mix, although higher pricing on Blades and Razors, growth on Braun from innovation, and increased trade support, helped to minimize this impact.

As mentioned above, the Beauty segment lost several categories and brand back in July in the Coty deal, and P&G clarified that its guidance for fiscal year 2016 Core EPS is relative to fiscal 2015 results, revised for the impacts of moving earnings from the Beauty categories it plans to exit to discontinued operations.

Once again volume was the main issue in Beauty this quarter, with decreases in Skin and Personal Care due to competitive activity and portfolio SKU reductions. These were partially offset by growth from marketing and innovation on the super-premium SK-II brand.

Hair Care, a category heavily affected by the brand divestment, saw volume also decline due to competitive activity and price increases in the previous fiscal year.

Looking ahead, Lafley focuses on organic sales saying he expects this growth to be positive and “to further strengthen in the back half as we invest to build awareness and trial of our consumer-preferred products and brands.”
