CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health, announced the addition of more than 150 new products under its portfolio of exclusive private brands, including an expansion of the recently launched Live Better by CVS Health brand, new Gold Emblem Fair Trade Certified coffee, and the launch of Goodline Grooming Co., a men’s skin and grooming care brand exclusive to CVS.
Guided by current shopping behaviors and consumer feedback signaling further shifts toward value, transparency, and sustainability, these new offerings across health, grocery and beauty were innovated to satisfy unmet customer needs. The expansion of these private brands goes beyond the compare-to products that are typically associated with private label, and instead offer premium products at affordable prices. Shoppers have access to products consciously crafted with ingredients like ashwagandha, rhodiola, echinacea, green tea extract and apple cider vinegar, as well as more convenient packaging methods like multipacks, resealable bags and value sizes to help customers stretch their dollars even further. As part of an ongoing commitment to transparency, new launches also include water in BPA-free recyclable boxes, feminine products made from 100% cotton, and beauty items free of harmful ingredients such as phthalates and formaldehydes.
“We’ve been listening to and working with our customers to engage and meet their needs in ways others haven’t,” said Brenda Lord, Vice President of Store Brands at CVS Health. “Millions of people are entering our stores, opening our app and visiting CVS.com daily for prescriptions, essentials, or health care services like tests and vaccinations, and we want them to feel supported in meeting their everyday needs. We’ve seen that younger and health-minded consumers are responding positively to our exclusive offerings, noticing the purpose, passion, quality and value across our Store Brands portfolio. I’m so proud of this work; we feel a deep sense of purpose in this. You’ll continue to see exciting launches from us.”
