NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- Johnson & Johnson is looking to strengthen its position in hair care by agreeing to acquire Vogue International, a privately held personal care products company, for approximately $3.3 billion in cash.
J&J said the acquisition will include the OGX collection of shampoos, conditioners, treatments, styling products, body care and bath products, the FX line of hair styling products, and the Proganix and Maui Moisture hair care lines.
ORLANDO — NO-AD Sun Care has become the first mass market sunscreen product line to go both paraben- and retinyl palmitate-free.
Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetics and personal care products, while retinyl palmitate is a form of vitamin A that has antioxidant properties.
"While there is no evidence that sunscreens with paraben or retinyl palmitate pose an issue," said Krisztina Toth, Brands and Trade Marketing Manager, NO-AD Sun Care, "many customers and consumers wanted a paraben- and retinyl palmitate-free product."
