CLINIQUE MEDICAL ENDS: Botox maker Allergan Inc. and Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.-owned Clinique will discontinue Clinique Medical, a skin care line designed for physicians’ offices, as of August this year. Allergan spokeswoman Heather Katt indicated the tough economic environment blunted Clinique Medical’s chance of success. “While we recognize that the decline in the medical aesthetic market may be a transient trend, this decision was made to help Allergan and Clinique focus on products that are most meaningful to their customers at this time,” she said. Allergan and Clinique announced a strategic collaboration to market Clinique Medical in January 2008, and Clinique Medical products launched in the fall of that year.
