Comments: In the US, if you are eating, snacking or drinking something with an organic/natural or healthy slant, there’s a good chance Hain Celestial owns the brand. On the company’s roster are brands such as Rice Dream, Celestial Seasonings, Garden of Eatin’, Terra Chips and Earth’s Best Baby to name just a few. But this Melville, NY-based firm also has several in natural/organic personal care companies under its umbrella. Its range includes skin, hair and oral care, deodorants, baby care, acne treatments and sunscreens. There’s even a few home care products in the mix now too, as Earth’s Best offers wipes and a spray nursery cleaner.

All told, personal care products accounted for approximately 8% of Hain’s consolidated net sales in 2012. However, it is a shrinking portion of the company’s portfolio; personal care sales represented 10% of sales in both 2011 and 2010.

Alba Botanica, Avalon Organics, Jason and Earth’s Best personal care products are manufactured in Culver City, CA.
