MUMBAI, India — Doctors from the old Indian school of medicine, Ayurveda, often diagnose a disease just by reading the pulse of a patient.
Several analysts agree that although it is a French brand, L’Oréal has performed just this function in India. The beauty giant has kept one hand on the pulse of the Indian consumer, while maintaining a fast moving strategy that has kept the brand growing in the high-double digits for years. The company has diagnosed the consumer need and dispensed what is desired at a rate just ahead of the market trend.

"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)
