Personal Care Products & Services - Coverage Report November 2020

Published on: 11/30/2020

Capstone Headwaters’ most recent Personal Care Industry Update has been released, available for free download below.

Despite significant headwinds introduced by COVID-19 in the Personal Care industry, demand has persisted for brands with favorable product mixes and robust e-commerce capabilities.  While deal-making has slowed through year-to-date 2020 compared to the prior year, personal care brands and manufacturers have continued to draw sustained buyer interest, with the Skincare/Bodycare segment comprising the highest percentage of transactions. 

Report highlights include:

  • Accelerated adoption of digital capabilities as consumers increasingly search for personal care products through online channels.
  • Public companies have slowed their pursuit of acquisitions with many focusing on existing products lines and maintaining healthy balance sheets.
  • Private equity, armed with historic levels of dry powder, have remained attracted to contract manufacturing organizations serving personal care providers.
  • Skincare has emerged as a resilient product category, while makeup and lipstick sales have suffered throughout the pandemic.
