30-Apr-2021

A global brand with a history of innovation and ambition. Here at L’Oréal, we’ve made it our quest to deliver beauty for all. It’s an aim that has seen us expand into over 130 countries and to develop operations across every retail distribution channel too. And we can honestly say that our careers are just as diverse as our business. After all, at L’Oréal, nothing is impossible.

The Active Cosmetics Division  has enjoyed double digit growth for 10 years and now contributes 12% of L'Oréal UKI numbers, consistently delivering 50%+ contribution to growth over the last 3 years. In 2020 we are currently the only division in the UK and in Europe who can boast performance of +24% to budget year to date and +39% year on year. All this has not happened by luck alone, we were already tracking considerably ahead on our e-commerce participation (was 28% in 2019) which gave us the springboard to rocket this channel way beyond our target when COVID hit (currently tracking at 50% year to date). The good news doesn’t stop there, we were the only brands to keep promotional activity on sun in Boots and our Superdrug store distribution has continued to expand even during lockdown enabling positive performance despite very challenging circumstances. We are obsessed about the integrity of our brands which are  co-developed, recommended and prescribed by health professionals, including dermatologists, paediatricians and cosmetic doctors around the world. There is plenty of further opportunity to grow through unlocking new consumers and new distribution, but the long-term success of our brands will come from doing this carefully, maintaining our category approach.
