Why should you take part in the L’Oréal adventure?

Being a L’Oréal shareholder means believing in the strength of the Group’s balanced, value-creating development model, underpinned by decisive assets.

A high-potential growth market

The worldwide cosmetics market has grown steadily, spurred on by innovation and the limitless diversity of consumer aspirations. It is a market driven by the development of social media, increasing urbanisation worldwide and rising growth in online beauty spending due to the expected growth of the high-income class between now and 2030, an increase in life expectancy and the continued desire for products that are new, different and better. In this context, L’Oréal has maintained its leadership in 20171.
