PARIS — L’Oréal’s Active Cosmetics Division is going from strength to strength thanks in large part to the growth of its two biggest brands, Vichy and La Roche-Posay, in emerging markets, especially China.
The division saw sales last year increase 4.9 percent, or 7.8 percent on a like-for-like basis, to 1.6 billion euros, or $2.19 billion at average exchange, as reported. That’s ahead of the global dermocosmetics market’s growth of 5 percent, according to data revealed by the French beauty giant on a recent visit to the active branch’s manufacturing and research facilities.

This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
