Description of the company

L'Oréal S.A. is a French company dedicated to the cosmetics and beauty products industry, being the largest in the world in its sector, developing hair dyes, perfumes, sun protection, skin care, men's care, and innovating in tissue engineering, dermatology and biopharmaceuticals, reaching more than 86 thousand employees, 36 brands, and positioning itself in 150 countries.

It was created by the chemist Eugène Schueller in Clichy, Paris, in 1909, patenting a permanent hair coloring formula, which, unlike those that existed at the time, was safe to use, growing gradually and adapting to the demands of fashion, so they innovated by creating non-toxic dyes, according to the taste and style of the time.

In 1919, he became a partner with André Spery, opening the "French Harmless Hair Dye Company", moving to Paris, launching his professional catalog in 1929 distributed in the main beauty salons of the city, adding more products such as the Dop family shampoo, fast dyeing systems and sunscreens, launching the "Préférence" range in 1970 and becoming known worldwide with the slogan "Because I'm worth it", which is recognized to this day.

In the 1980s, they included makeup and skin care lines, incorporating in 2000 a series of anti-aging products for men called "L'Oréal Men Expert".

Major acquisitions to expand operations and expand globally include Sanofi-Aventis, The Body Shop, Nestlé, Carita, Decléor, NYX Cosmetics, Niely Cosmetics Group, Magia Holidings, Urban Decay, Modiface and Stylenanda.
