The year is essentially over, but the new products are still coming. Suppliers continue to launch new products to the market as the economy picks up steam and consumers are starting to spend again.
In November, companies introduced 115 new products in the health, wellness and beauty categories. Hamacher Resource Group’s new product team evaluated 10 products in the health category, 34 in the wellness sector and 71 from the beauty aisle to identify five that could be superstars for retailers. Here are the products they found:
1. RB’s Pain Relief Pen
BioFreeze formula is now available in a portable broad-tip pen. The BioFreeze Pain Relief Pen is designed to target pain and provide fast-acting cooling relief exactly where it’s needed. The no touch applicator allows liquid to go on clear with no mess to help alleviate sore muscles, backaches, sore joints and arthritis pain.
2. O’Keeffe’s Hand Soap
O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand soap was developed to moisturize and cleanse, washing away dirt and grime while leaving hands hydrated and soothed. The moisture-rich formula is designed to replenish skin’s natural moisture to dry, cracked hands and leave them feeling healthy.
3. Procter & Gamble Floss Kit
P&G’s Oral-B Glide Pro Refillable Floss Kit is a unique floss starter kit that can be refilled so it minimizes plastic waste. A more sustainable solution that is better for the planet, the floss kit is designed to slide easier between tight teeth compared to regular floss, and the package can freely sit on a bathroom counter to drive usage and frequency.
4. Galderma Laboratories Acne Cleanser
Galderma Laboratories has added to the Cetaphil line with the Gentle Clear Clarifying Acne Cream Cleanser. The new gentle cream-to-lather cleanser is formulated to provide deep cleaning to clear and soothe breakouts in acne-prone and sensitive skin without drying. Salicylic acid helps clear and prevent breakouts, and white tea and aloe help nourish and soothe sensitive skin. It comes in 4.2 oz.
5. Procter & Gamble Dietary Supplement
P&G has expanded the Vick’s line with Vick’s SuperC Rest + Replenish dietary supplement. It combines 1,000 mg of vitamin C with zinc and a botanical blend of ashwagandha, chamomile and echinacea to help replenish essential vitamins when recovering from illness.
