SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The maker of Lily.B, a line of natural skin care products, has inked a partnership with Costco to carry its Lily.B multi-action rescue ultra eye cream at a special low price for a limited time at 20 pilot Costco locations in eight states.
"We were very excited when Costco approached us about Lily.B multi-action rescue ultra eye cream. After trying the product and seeing the eye cream placement in Parents magazine, Costco decided to test the product in 20 locations across the [United States]," Lily Blue LLC founder Liz Bishop said. "Through June 30, you can find Lily.B ultra eye cream in select Costco stores, specially priced at $27.99."

P&G sues Vi-Jon over mouthwash bottle
CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble announced that it has filed a lawsuit against a private-label manufacturer and distributor of mouthwash for allegedly violating the former’s intellectual property.
P&G claimed in its suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, that Vi-Jon’s mouthwash product carries a bottle and label shape design that is too similar to P&G’s Scope Outlast mouthwash.
The lawsuit seeks to stop Vi-Jon from violating P&G’s intellectual property, including its design patents, trade dress, trademarks and copyright, and to stop the company from selling the infringing products.
"Scope has invested in significant [research and development] to bring this product to market, and we take very seriously issues related to our intellectual property and competitive advantage," P&G Oral Care group president Charlie Pierce said. "Vi-Jon is using and benefitting from our intellectual property, which we developed and promoted at great cost. We’re taking this action to prevent consumers from being misled and to protect our business."
