PZ Cussons Plc in Beauty and Personal Care

September 2013

PZ Cussons’ profile in beauty and personal care is centred on bath and shower, although the company has increased its presence in other categories such as hair care with acquisitions of more premium-positioned brands. The company remains dependent on a small number of disparate markets, largely as a result of its strategy to focus on select markets. Nevertheless, it has the potential to become an important regional company, specifically in Asia Pacific.
