L'Oréal Group Closes Robust 2017, Posting Strong Sales, Profit, Solid Growth

March 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
The L'Oréal Group closed out fiscal 2017 reporting strong sales for the year, totaling €26.02 billion ($32.3 billion), up 4.8 percent from 2016 based on a comparable scope of consolidation and constant exchange rates. Factors affecting revenue included consolidation (-2.8 percent); acquisitions (+0.9 percent); sale of The Body Shop (-3.7 percent); and currency fluctuations (-1.3 percent). Growth at constant exchange rates was 2.0 percent. Growth in the Active Cosmetics Division, which includes the CeraVe products, was 5.8 percent like-for-like (11.9 percent reported). Division sales surpassed €2 billion ($2.5 billion). The division continues to grow internationally, “thanks to the successful integration of CeraVe, which is growing strongly in the American market” at a rate of 20 percent annually. The company still posted growth of 1.7 percent like-for-like (3.5 percent reported). “The American market is continuing to grow, but is facing a slowdown,” the company said.
 
The profitability of Active Cosmetics slid 60 basis points at 22.6 percent but continues to be the most profitable division. The company noted that it invested significantly “to support skincare brand Vichy, to accelerate La Roche-Posay, and to prepare for the rollout of CeraVe.” The company saw acceleration in the overall skincare market, thanks to Baby Boomers and to Millennials, and to Asian consumers. Division President Brigitte Liberman said two major elements are driving the division’s success: first, a “powerful and sustainable trend for skincare you can trust,” and second, the acquisition of CeraVe, which has “transformed the worldwide footprint of the division and complemented our brand portfolio.”  [Image Credit: ©  L'Oréal]

February 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British beauty writer Dominique Temple welcomed the arrival of L'Oréal’s CeraVe line of ceramide-based skincare products to the U.K., noting that they offer high-quality, affordable alternatives to French products – including Avene and Bioderma – with their “stalwart formulas and chic packaging.” She bestowed her stamp of approval on the popular American pharmacy brand: “CeraVe really is an affordable, accessible, cosmetically elegant range for all skin types.” Other affordable American products in the same category she recommended include Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Vanilla Body Wash, and RoC, Max Resurfacing Facial Cleanser.

CeraVe Products Now Available In The U.K.

February 7, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
L'Oréal’s CeraVe skincare brand arrived in the U.K. on March 5. Seven products are being sold at Boots pharmacies and online.

The company announced it has hired Blanket Consulting to work with Sarah Ashwick at L’Oréal for the U.K. launch  Blanket will work on the brand’s press and influencer relations.

Bioengineering Success May Give L’Oréal A Competitive Advantage In China

January 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal China Co. has succeeded in reconstructing Chinese skin cells in a Shanghai lab from living tissue donors. The cells will be used by R&D teams to test makeup and skincare products, such as anti-aging serums, whitening creams, and pollution-fighting cleansers, for Chinese consumers – “the most demanding in the world in almost all our product categories,” a company representative said. L’Oréal is the top-selling beauty brand in China, but consumers have begun to turn to local brands for products formulated for their skin type. An industry analyst said the company has recognized the trend and has ”moved to adapt to the different genes to capture the huge potential of the Chinese market.” [Image Credit: © Cosmetics China Agency]

January 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Using smart packaging technology, the companies hope to determine how participants in the product test are really using the skincare product. Avon said in order to make the most of the product's anti-aging effects, consumers should rotate its Phyto+ and SuperRetinol complexes every seven days.

Ceramide Skincare Market Has A New Player

January 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Personal care company ESN Group has entered the ceramide skincare market with its Ceramedx line of formulations, including a cleanser, moisturizing cream, and body lotion. The products feature a “plant-based ceramide technology” known as Riceramide-3 Complex. They are fragrance-free and made without parabens or petrolatum. Ceramide-based skincare products entered the market with the launch of Nestlé subsidiary Galderma’s Cetaphil product line, which now includes formulations for men. Another major competitor for California-based ESN Group is L’Oréal, which paid more than a billion dollars to acquire the Valeant skincare brands, which include CeraVe. In the Ceramedx press release, a dermatologist noted that the new product line offers “a more natural alternative for patients of mine with dry skin who need a therapeutic product.” [Image Credit: © Ceramedx]

Survey: Americans Are Neglecting To Moisturize Their Skin In Winter

January 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
An online survey conducted by Harris Poll has found that 65 percent of participants believe the winds, low temperatures, hot showers, and warm houses of January contribute to dry skin. The poll, sponsored by skincare company CeraVe, found that 42 percent believe dry skin in the winter is one of the things they dislike most – more than going to the DMV, filing taxes, and shoveling snow – and wish there were a “quick fix” for the problem. Many of those polled (25 percent) said they are neglecting a skincare routine that could bring them the fix they're seeking. Fifteen percent admitted they never moisturize their skin at all. CeraVe announced the poll results in conjunction with its declaration that January 8 is Winter Skin Relief Day, a good time to start moisturizing with products like CeraVe Healing Ointment.

New Launches In Antiaging Segment Of Mass Skincare Stall

December 22, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The mass skincare segment is expected to show a healthy new product growth pattern this year, in all but one category: new product launches in the antiaging category are declining by three percent. Meanwhile, cleansers are growing 16 percent year-over-year and moisturizers are growing seven percent. It’s possible some new antiaging products from big players could turn the category around. Procter & Gamble's Olay will introduce Millennial-minded updates to moisturizers in the Regenerist, Total Effects, and Luminous lines. A new L'Oréal Paris antiaging product blends pro-retinol with an ingredient common in Chinese medicine as the company works to meet demand for clinically-proven natural ingredients. Unilever‘s newness products in mass skincare will include a St. Ives cleansing stick. [Image Credit: ©   L'Oréal]

2018 Dawns With L’Oréal Active On Many Fronts

December 19, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal’s activities in 2017 are a good starting point for determining where it might go in 2018. Key moves and trends include: adapting to digital innovation; stepping up acquisitions and alliances with beauty start-ups; renewing the portfolio; adapting to consumer megatrends like smart diagnostics, healthy living and experience; premiumization of mass beauty; innovating skincare and haircare in the “microbiome” space; applying alternative skin allergy and eye irritation testing technologies that do not involve animals; and furthering its achievements in sustainability across climate, water, and forests. A key hire was Lucia Dumas as executive vice president of communication and public affairs, succeeding Isabel Marey-Semper. And, lastly, what might be the impact of the death of billionaire heiress Liliane Bettencourt, L’Oréal’s founder’s daughter and a major stockholder?  [Image Credit: © L’Oréal]

L'Oréal’s EpiSkin Is Removing Animals From The Cosmetics Testing Process

December 19, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L'Oréal’s pioneering work in the use of human skin cells to test the safety of chemicals used in cosmetics continues to transform the industry, in particular reducing or eliminating animal testing. Batches of the company’s lab-grown human skin, dubbed EpiSkin, are sold by its EPISKIN subsidiary to other cosmetics companies, to chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and to university-based scientists. EpiSkin reproduces the distinctive shape of the cells in each layer of human skin, giving laboratories a fuller picture of how skin reacts to different substances and allows them to better select the product to be tested in clinical studies. Researchers now plan to expand the EpiSkin range with skin models that mimic dry skin, inflamed skin or sensitive skin. They are also developing tissue models that integrate the latest advances such as tissue reconstruction using functionalized cells. [Image Credit: © L'Oréal ]

Class Action Suit Alleges “Inflated UV Protection Numbers” In CeraVe Lotions

December 18, 2017: 12:00 AM EST

The plaintiffs in a class action suit against L’Oréal USA and Valeant Pharmceuticals International allege that their sunscreen testing of two CeraVe body lotions shows that the actual SPF levels are far lower than those claimed by the defendants. In the case of CeraVe Body Lotion SPF 50, the average tested SPF level was only 17. 4; in Body Lotion SPF 30, the average was 16. The plaintiffs claim that the “pattern and practice” of marketing sunscreen lotions with “a false SPF number, and largely inflated UV protection numbers” have injured them. [Image Credit: © CeraVe ]

Data Chief At L’Oréal Complains Of Poor Data Quality For Analytics

December 7, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal’s data acquisition head told a recent IAB conference that her company is struggling to find useable consumer profile data for measurement and attribution analytics. Data for media activities is much easier to locate and obtain. But brands need to test new data sources – like the direct data available to e-commerce and retail sites – that can be used in analytics. Aruna Paramasivam [left] said activation in programmatic requires at least one million consumers per segment on the open market, and that’s not easy to come by. “It’s frustrating for us because the attribution and measurement decisions right now don’t have the granularity and data quality we’d like.”  [Image Credit: © IAB ]

Haircare Adopts The Health And Wellness Formula Of Skincare

December 4, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Haircare brands have noticed the growing consumer love affair with all things “wellness,” and are doing what they can – e.g., borrowing from skincare trends – to satisfy the demand for products while boosting a sagging market segment. Industry observers note the strong links between skincare, haircare, and health and wellness. The trend is called “skinification” of haircare, and it incorporates ideas from skincare and healthful nutrition. L'Oréal has adopted “skinification-of-hair” in products made with better-for-you ingredients, e.g., superfoods in the Matrix Biolage Raw range and Garnier's reformulated Fructis line, which relaunched earlier in 2017 using superfruits. Mintel notes that Garnier's Whole Blends shampoos and conditioners, as well as OGX's natural-positioned products with coconut milk and lavender, have both fared well.  [Image Credit: © Matrix.com ]

L’Oréal Has Built A World Of Beauty Marketing In Airports Globally

November 28, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
L’Oréal operates on all five geographical continents, and on one that is conceptual but still real and large. The travel retail segment comprises airports where stores sell a wide range of L’Oréal makeup, fragrances, and cosmetics between flights. After four decades, travel retail continues to thrive, driven by Millennials taking advantage of low-cost flights and by Chinese consumers – a market set to double in size by 2023. Digital technologies are also at work in travel retail, along with “retailtainment,” a strategy of transforming points of sale into spaces where women can get their make-up done, or pop into a lip bar. At one of nine airport dermacenters, L’Oréal customers can consult with a specialist who performs skin analyses.   [Image Credit: © L’Oréal  ]

New Skincare Brand Gets Painful Lesson In Free-From Marketing

November 15, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The launch of Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique Skincare Collection holds a cautionary tale in the dangers of free-from marketing.  After noticing an increase in patients suffering from red, inflamed skin that she believed was due to essential oils, Kristina Holey worked with her partner Marie Veronique Nadeau to create a range of products to rebalance the microbiome, or healthy flora, of the skin. The products were free of essential oils but the duo found that instead of focusing on the benefits of their new products media attention concentrated on the damage essential oils could do, with a corresponding backlash aimed at Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique.  Refinery29 ran an article Are Your 'Natural' Skincare Products Actually Hurting Your Skin? while The New York Times' T Magazine looked at Skincare’s Backlash Against Essential Oils. A core takeaway seems to be to stress the benefits of a product rather than emphasize the downsides of ingredients removed or avoided.[Image Credit: © Kristina Holey + Marie Veronique]

Body Care: A Growth Opportunity For Skin Care Brands

November 14, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
WWD points to body care as an emerging and meaningful white space opportunity. While it represents just 9 percent of the total $5.4 billion prestige skincare market in the US (NPD Group), it is growing faster than the category and accelerating.  The trend is impacting mass through prestige.  Sisley indicates that in the US its body care is growing five times as fast as its skin care business, while Amazon’s body-care business grew 47 percent year-over-year to reach $100 million, with Aquaphor’s Healing Ointment the bestseller. A number of products are being launched into the space. In October Le Labo introduced its first body products while in September Glossier launched Body Hero. A primary driver is mature consumers that seek similar anti-aging treatments as they use for their face, reflecting an appreciation for full-body appearance. Given the swelling numbers of the boomer generation demographic this looks like a trend that will continue. [Image Credit: © Le Labo]

Korea Shows How Devices Will Be Of Growing Importance In Skincare

November 10, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Certain skincare opportunities will be driven by devices, with the global beauty devices market set to grow from $27.8 billion in 2016 to $94.3 billion by 2023 (P&S Market Research), Korea provides a possible future view into this market In 2013, L’Oréal launched in Korea an advanced skin care system for cleaning and firming, soon followed by Philips, Panasonic, Toshiba, AmorePacific and LG Household & Health Care. In September, LG Electronics launched “LG Pra.L” (Korean) its beauty appliance lineup that includes the Derma LED Mask, the Total Lift-up Care, the Galvanic Ion Booster and the Dual-Motion Cleanser, with prices ranging from $200 to $700. LG claims its LED mask and lift care improve skin tightening through the use of high-frequency LEDs and micro-currents, while its cleanser washes skin 10x better than conventional methods.  One interesting development is the growing use of data and AI. Samsung, for example, offers two devices (S-Skin and Lumini) that analyze a user’s skin for issues including dryness, blemishes, excess sebum and wrinkles, sends data to an app that recommends solutions and allows in-app chat sessions with selected demonologists.[Image Credit: © Samsung]
