Perrigo, one of the largest manufacturers of private label OTC pharmaceuticals, has launched a new Amazon Exclusive infant formula brand called Love & Care.
It’s the first infant formula Amazon Exclusive brand we’ve seen. Currently, Earth’s Best (owned by Hain Celestial Group), Similac (owned by Abbott Laboratories), Enfamil (owned by Mead Johnson), and Happy Baby brand infant formulas rank the highest in Amazon US search results for infant formula. Plum Organics, Happy Baby, Love & Care, and GoodSense are the top brands advertising on those searches.
While “Love & Care” brand items are not yet showing up with the “Our Brand” label in search results, Amazon is promoting the new Love & Care brand in the baby healthcare section of its US website with ads like the following:
Perrigo has not made any announcements that we can find, and the company has not yet responded to our request for comment. We will update if they do. Vine reviews have started coming in in recent days, suggesting that Perrigo may be waiting to promote the new brand until after some initial reviews come in.
Perrigo filed for the US trademark for “Love & Care” on May 9, 2018. The company also produces the Amazon Exclusive Basic Care brand, which includes a variety of first aid health care products and OTC medicines.
