Newhall Laboratories markets personal care brands including la bella, Monkey Brains and GroWorks. Newhall Laboratories will operate as an independent platform company, according to Brynwood.
This acquisition represents Brynwood VI's third acquisition in the personal care sector.
Brynwood VI created High Ridge Brands through two separate transactions, one with The Procter & Gamble Company and one with Unilever. High Ridge Brands acquired the Zest personal cleansing brand from Proctor & Gamble in January 2011 and the Alberto VO5 and Rave hair care brands from Unilever in August 2011.
