Kenvue moving Neutrogena operations to N.J., closing L.A. office and cutting jobs

Kenvue, the Johnson & Johnson spinoff that operates as a fully independent company and is based in Skillman, is closing its Neutrogena office in Los Angeles and consolidating its operations to New Jersey.

According to various published reports, Neutrogena will lay off about 135 employees from its skin care division. Eighty-four of those workers are from California, while 51 are from Skillman. The employees are being offered jobs at other Kenvue locations.

Kenvue is moving to a newly built 290,000-square-foot facility that will serve as its new global corporate headquarters in Summit.

In a statement, Kenvue’s media department said: “(The company is evolving its operations) to reach more consumers, optimize collaboration and broaden talent and career opportunities for all Kenvuers and drive sustainable growth. As part of this, we will be consolidating operations from other sites to one location, our future world headquarters in Summit, New Jersey. … Decisions impacting our employees are never easy. We are fully committed to providing those affected by this change with the resources and support they may need.”
