The hair salon business likewise contributed to the growth dynamics of the business sector and further extended its position as the global number three in a persistently difficult market environment. Following the successful relaunch of the ammonia-free colorant, the Essensity brand saw the introduction of a completely new line of hair care and styling products. With innovative products, such as the styling powder launched under the top styling brand Osis, the hair salon segment was able to both attract new customers and strengthen business with existing clients.
In the fourth quarter of 2010, Henkel increased sales compared to the prior-year period by 11.5% to €3,729 million. After adjusting for foreign exchange, sales rose by 5.7%. Organic sales growth came in at 5.8%.
