Aveeno is a manufacturer of skin care and hair care products in the United States and is a subsidiary of American consumer goods and pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson. Aveeno was founded in 1945, and its first product was their Soothing Bath Treatment. The active ingredient in all Aveeno products are colloidal oats and/or oat extracts - Avenanthramides, which have been branded as "active naturals". Aveeno offers products to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, urushiol-induced contact dermatitis, pruritus ani, chickenpox, hives, and sunburn.
Aveeno was originally made by Rydelle Laboratories, a division of S. C. Johnson & Son, which dropped the Rydelle name in 1989, and was later purchased by Johnson & Johnson in 1999. Once acquired by Johnson & Johnson a team led by Sharon D'agostino, Margo Weitekamp, Guy Berechit and Holly Means created a new marketing strategy storefronting the "Active Naturals". In 2001, the brand was expanded into the Baby Care and Body Wash Categories with Aveeno Baby and Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash. In 2004 the brand was launched into the facial care category with the Positively Radiant line, based on the "Active Soy" ingedient. In 2005, Aveeno Clear Complexion acne care was introduced and in 2006 Aveeno Ultra Calming launched. In 2007, Aveeno Anti-Aging was introduced in the market.
