Shiseido to sell daily necessities unit as it hones cosmetics focus

Andrew M. Santos

TOKYO — Japanese cosmetics maker Shiseido plans to sell a portion of its business, including hair care products, to European private-equity fund CVC Capital Partners for possibly more than 100 billion yen ($965 million), Nikkei has learned.

The move comes amid slumping sales during the coronavirus pandemic as more people stay at home. Shiseido aims to sell less-profitable businesses to focus on its core cosmetics business.

CVC will acquire Shiseido’s “personal care business,” which develops and sells daily necessities like skin care and body care products found in drugstores. It will also include its “Tsubaki” haircare brand of shampoos and conditioners as well as “Uno,” a popular men’s hair styling brand.

As Sue Nabi prepares to formally step into the chief executive officer’s role at Coty Inc., she is ready to refocus the ailing company on some key tenets of the beauty business — like good products.
