Comments: While Hain Celestial as a whole had a challenging fiscal year, its personal care segment saw an increase in sales for 2020. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 (the 2021 report comes out after deadline for this year’s Top 50 report), corporate net sales slipped 2.4% to $2.05 billion. Net sales decreased across both the company’s North America and international reportable segments, primarily driven by the strategic decision to no longer support certain lower margin and unprofitable SKUs, a reduction in net sales in relation to divested brands and a decline in our fruit business as a result of impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, personal care sales rose 6% to $192.8 million. Personal care products accounted for approximately 10% of the company’s consolidated net sales in each of fiscal 2020, 2019 and 2018, according to Hain Celestial’s annual report.
Big news for Hain Celestial’s popular beauty brand Alba Botanica was a partnership with surfer and Olympic medal hopeful Caroline Marks—the youngest surfer ever to qualify for the Women’s Championship Surf Tour and qualified to represent the USA at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. She represents confidence, determination, excellence, and true beauty, all qualities that are valued and celebrated by the Alba Botanica brand, said the company, which is part of Hain Celestial.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Caroline Marks join the Alba Botanica family,” said Lisa Coker, general manager and vice president of personal care at Hain Celestial. “Not only has she been incorporating our product into her daily routine for years, especially when it comes to sun care, but she also shares the belief that the choices we make today can positively impact tomorrow. Caroline embodies this in not only the work she does but the product choices she makes. We look forward to an empowering and impactful collaboration.”
