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.
