Johnson & Johnson is expanding its interests in Japan with the acquisition of Ci:z Holdings, a company focused on the marketing, development and distribution of a broad range of dermocosmetic, cosmetic and skincare products.  Included in the $2.1 stock offer are brands including Dr.Ci:Labo, Labo Labo, and the Genomer line of skincare products.  This is Johnson & Johnson’s first departure from mass beauty, where is has a stronghold with Aveeno, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, RoCLubriderm, Le Petit Marseillais, Rogaine, and several other brands.

“Health and beauty consumers are actively seeking science-based innovation to improve their skin,” said Jorge Mesquita, Worldwide Chairman, Johnson & Johnson Consumer. “This transaction will maximise value creation for Johnson & Johnson’s Consumer business by bringing in an agile innovation model and rapidly accelerating sales through our global commercialization expertise.”

In July 2016, Cilag GmbH International, an affiliate of Johnson & Johnson’s, entered into a long-term strategic collaboration with Ci:z Holdings to distribute its brands outside of Japan. As part of this collaboration, Cilag acquired approximately 19.9% of the outstanding shares of Ci:z Holdings. The tender offer is part of a series of transactions in which Johnson & Johnson intends to acquire all the outstanding shares.

We all know that the first day of school can be filled with anxiety.  From “what should I wear?” to “who will be my friends?” the last thing you want your teen to worry about is not having clean and clear skin!  Its time to go back to school with Skincare 101 from Clean & Clear.  The brand’s Continuous Control Acne Cleanser is a daily formula to remove dirt and oil, while gently medicating breakouts deep below the skin’s surface with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide.  Its Essentials Dual Action Moisturizer hydrates clean skin with oil-free moisture and treats potential breakouts with a .5% Salicylic Acid solution. Keeping skin looking shine-free throughout the day are Oil Absorbing Sheets.  Designed to remove excess oil and shine, these sheets won’t smudge makeup or leave behind a cakey residue.  Finally, to help your teen chill out after a super-long day are Clean & Clear’s Night Relaxing Jelly Eye Sheet Face Masks.  The hydrogel formula contours to the skin, soothing and moisturizing the delicate eye area, as seaweed extract reinvigorates tired skin.  Clean & Clear’s Back To School Essentials are designed to teach your teen the basics of skincare, while offering them a few extra credit assignments!
