Amazon has dozens of secret brands — here’s what you need to know

Amazon has become indispensable to millions of people.

With new technology like the Echo, along with Prime Music, Prime Video and now Amazon meal kits, the online retail giant is slowly making its way into all aspects of everyday life. Need toilet paper? You can get it in a day with Amazon Prime.

More recently, the Seattle-based company started ramping up sales of its own products (often at cheaper prices than popular brands) through in-house brands like AmazonBasics. By cutting out the middleman, Amazon can sell things like organic baby food, wagyu burgers and little black dresses for a fraction of the typical cost.

But as Recode uncovered, AmazonBasics is far from the only brand the retailer is selling. In fact, according to the tech news site, the company now owns 70 brands. That’s up from 19 private label brands from August.

And, not all of these brands clearly state they are affiliated with Amazon. Some we knew about (the label Pinzon indicates it’s “by Amazon,” and MyHabit has been associated with Amazon for years), but we had no idea many of these brands were part of the Amazon family.

Let’s take a look at some of the items they’re currently selling.
