"Baby and Child-Specific Products in Norway" now available at Fast Market Research

Published: Wed Aug 20 2014

Within beauty and personal care in Norway, baby and child-specific products felt the most significant effects of the different product tests that were conducted and presented through the media. Norwegians are very wary about the products they buy for their children, and many conducted thorough research to find the best products that did not contain any substances that are unhealthy or not beneficial. Some companies that had a low score from these tests on their products felt the direct effect on sales shortly thereafter. In particular, baby and child-specific sun care saw the effects as the independent organisation Gronn Hverdag published a test in 2013 that showed that five of 13 sunscreens for children contained problematic substances such as the environmental toxin Cyclopentasiloxane, allergenic substances, EDTA substances and endocrine disrupters.

The company had an even stronger presence until 2009 when Johnson & Johnson Consumer Nordic took over the distribution of its own baby and child-specific brands in Norway from SCA Hygiene Products. Since then, SCA Hygiene Products continued to invest strongly in advertising and new product innovation in order to remain competitive.
