PARIS — L’Oréal had a banner year in 2002. The French beauty giant said Thursday that innovation and internationalization drove organic growth in a period beleaguered by adverse currency effects.
For the year ended Dec. 31, L’Oréal posted consolidated sales of $15.4 billion, up 8.9 percent on a like-for-like basis year-on-year. It’s a turnout the company calls "record" and in-line with expectations. On a consolidated basis, sales rose by 4 percent. All dollar figures are converted from the euro at current exchange rates.

"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)
