At L'Oréal, we have made cosmetics the focus of all our energy and know-how for nearly a century. We are fully committed to putting all our expertise and research resources to work for the well-being of men and women, in all their diversity, around the world.

The right to be beautiful day after day: L’Oréal strives to make this a reality within the reach of every woman and every man. This ambition is reflected in a brand portfolio unequalled anywhere in the world. Since its creation in 1909, the group has always considered this mission of prime importance.
The thousands of men and women who have built up the group across the world have made this their personal mission statement.
They use their intelligence and creativity, their innovative ability and all their expertise to further the cause of beauty the world over.
As well as meeting current consumer aspirations, L’Oréal anticipates their future expectations, being, as always, determined to promote an approach to beauty that is fun, affordable, fulfilling, genuine and generous.
None of this would be possible without L’Oréal’s deep respect for human beings of all types and nationalities, and without its genuine commitment to a sustainable environment. Strengthened by these values, and convinced that the quest for beauty has always been a major challenge for women and men, L’Oréal’s teams continue daily to push forward the frontiers of their profession.
