Disney parks and resorts in-room skincare product provider H2O+ will cease operations
After 33 years in business and nearly 15 years as a supplier of Disney toiletries to resorts and cruise lines, H2O+ has announced that it will cease operations.
In an announcement on H2O+’s official website, the company says, “After more than 30 years of incredible innovation, we have made the very difficult decision to retire the brand at the end of the year.”
H2O+ became a staple in Disney hotel rooms in 2008, providing free skincare and hair products.
The product’s future with Disney is unclear, with the company saying it will “fulfill its obligation to supply products in accordance with agreements with its business partners”.
H2O+’s parent company, Pola Orbis Holdings, said: “Since joining the group, H2O Plus has engaged in the manufacture and sale of cosmetics primarily in the United States. However, the business environment surrounding the beauty brand has become “extremely difficult”, with sales falling short of expectations. Pola acquired H2O Plus in 2010. At the time of the acquisition, Pola said it would expand the brand into Asia. In the future, H2O Plus will fulfill its obligation to supply products in accordance with agreements with its business partners. , and proceed with the dissolution procedures during the second half of 2023. Subsequently, the liquidation will be concluded following the completion of the necessary procedures.”
