Sales of personal care products accounted for 11% of corporate sales last year, up from 10% the year before. Corporate sales rose 7.5% last year, but sales of personal care products were hurt by weakness in the drugstore channel.
The company now markets the Martha Stewart Clean line of household products, which includes laundry, all-purpose, kitchen and bath cleaners.
In March, Hain launched its Earth’s Best brand into the home cleaning category with the introduction of a hypoallergenic baby laundry detergent and all-purpose nursery wipes.
Despite the new product activity, sales through March 31, 2010 tumbled nearly 20% to $694 million.
