Hawaiian Tropic unveils new sun care essentials
SHELTON, Conn. — An iconic summer brand is launching new products targeted at the consumer who wants quick-absorbing and lightweight sun care products.
Hawaiian Tropic is introducing Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen and Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer.
"We are always looking to develop products that provide consumers with our one-of-a-kind sun protection, but also gives them the indulgent, multisensory experience they're looking for," says Danielle Duncan, brand manager, sun care, Edgewell Personal Care. "Many don't like the way sunscreen feels going on their skin, and don't wear it as often as they should."
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen provides up to 12 hours of moisturization. It's available in both broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 15 and 30.
To help celebrate the launch, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen will be featured in seven episodes of actress Shay Mitchell's YouTube series, Shaycation. Mitchell has more than 21 million followers across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat and will promote Hawaiian Tropic across her social media channels. New episodes of Shaycation air now through June 28 at Youtube.com/shaymitchellofficial and www.facebook.com/OfficialShayMitchell/.
The second new product, Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer, aims to soothe, soften and leave skin radiant. The lotion is infused with an Island Mango fragrance and special light reflecting pigments to help skin appear beautiful, radiant and glowing.

KENNEBUNK, Maine — Just in time for summer, Tom's of Maine is offering parents two natural alternatives for protecting baby skin.
The brand is rolling out a new sunscreen and diaper cream that focus on gentle ingredients and contain no phthalates, parabens, phenoxyethanol or artificial ingredients.

Coty gives update on merger with P&G Beauty Brands
NEW YORK — Coty says it expects its transaction with P&G’s Fragrance, Color Cosmetics and Hair Color Business to close in October and that it expects to incur $1.2 billion of one-off costs over the next four years related to closing the deal.
“We continue to make strong progress on the P&G transaction which we expect will make Coty a global leader and challenger in the Beauty Industry," said Bart Becht, chairman and interim CEO of Coty. "We now expect the transaction to close in October 2016. We’ve also substantially increased our estimates for cost synergies compared to when we announced the transaction, significantly improving the outlook for Coty’s adjusted operating margin and adjusted earnings per share, excluding amortization.”
On July 9, 2015, Coty announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire P&G’s beauty brands through a Reverse Morris Trust structure. The transaction will create one of the world’s largest beauty companies, with pro forma combined annual revenues of more than $9 billion based on fiscal 2015 performance, strengthening Coty’s leadership position in the global beauty industry.
Following the transaction with P&G Beauty Brands, Coty is expected to become the global leader in fragrances with market leading positions in color cosmetics and hair coloring & styling.
P&G Beauty Brands includes fragrance brands such as Hugo Boss and Gucci, and the color cosmetics brands COVERGIRL and Max Factor. The transaction also gives Coty an attractive new category in the beauty industry through the addition of P&G’s hair color business, led by Wella and Clairol.
