AZUSA, Calif. — Third-quarter profits at Physicians Formula Holdings Inc. grew to $1.7 million, or 12 cents a diluted share, from $102,000, or a penny a share, in the same period a year ago because of tax benefits and a shift in timing of inventory returns.
The cosmetics firm, a leader in the bronzer market that produces mineral makeup and a brand called Organic Wear, registered sales of $20.3 million during the quarter ended Sept. 30, a 2.3 percent rise from $19.8 million in the year-ago period that was driven in part by a 30 percent increase in eye makeup sales.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
