— Kiss Kiss Goodnight
There are many firsts in newborns’ lives. There are first sounds, snuggles, smiles, smells and sights. Kiss Kiss Goodnight hopes to provide the first skincare.
The brand from Shelly Ann Winokur, a mom of three with advanced degrees in chemical engineering and business, is starting off with 3-in-1 Baby Bath Gel, a product that acts as a massage oil, cleanser and moisturizer. Centered around cold-pressed coconut, sesame and Kalahari melon seed oils, its formula transitions from an oil gel to milk cleanser and is designed for neonatal skin.
Kiss Kiss Goodnight’s minimalist black-and-white packaging plays up the themes of connection and comfort. It features a mother sloth hanging from a branch and embracing a baby sloth.
— J.C. Penney x Thirteen Lune
J.C. Penney’s new beauty concept is giving many indie brands their first shot at retail.
More than 170 beauty brands will debut at 10 J.C. Penney in-store beauty shops and online in October. Many of the indie brands in J.C. Penney’s overhauled beauty selection have never been sold at a marquee retailer before.
The lineup is noticeably more diverse than competitors’ lineups. “It was important for us to not only provide discovery experiences for our customers, but to also give a platform for indie- and BIPOC-founded brands.” stated Michelle Wlazlo, EVP & chief merchandising officer.
J.C. Penney has tripled its beauty space footprint dedicated to haircare, with a third devoted to textured hair. Abdulsalam mentions that 150 million people wear wigs at least three times a month, and sales in the category are growing 14% yearly.
J.C. Penney’s in-store beauty shops will occupy roughly 2,000 square feet and be outfitted in mostly white and natural wood tones. The shops will be visible from around the retailer’s stores.
