Colgate gets Amazon Dash Button
Amazon just made ordering toothpaste a little bit easier.
The retail giant teamed up with Colgate-Palmolive to launch the Amazon Dash Button for Colgate, which enables shoppers to stock up on the brand’s dental hygiene essentials, including toothpaste and toothbrushes, with the click of a button.
By launching Amazon’s mobile shopping app, consumers can connect the Dash Button via their home Wi-Fi network. Once connected, a single press of the Dash Button automatically places shoppers’ orders of the branded merchandise. Amazon Prime members are entitled to free shipping.
"We’re very excited for the launch of the Amazon Dash Button for Colgate,” said Bill Van de Graaf, VP and general manager, North America oral care marketing, Colgate-Palmolive. “With this seamless in-home shopping experience, we’re able to put dental care products at consumers’ fingertips.”

There is no denying it: Ulta Salon Cosmetics & Fragrance is on a roll.
The retailer will open 100 stores this year, including its first-ever location in Manhattan.
Shares of Ulta rose 38% last year, about four times higher than the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index’s gain, Bloomberg reported, and its annual revenue has quadrupled to $3.9 billion since it went public 10 years ago.
“They are changing the way people shop as they have allowed people to buy both mass and prestige, as well as get salon, brow and other services which historically would have been done at multiple locations,” said Brian Yarbrough, an analyst at Edward Jones & Co., in the report. “No other retailer offers all three in the same spot.”
