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.
