"All Divisions are growing. L’Oréal Luxe sales exceeded 11 billion euros, driven by the strong dynamism of its four big brands – Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani and Kiehl’s – which all posted double-digit growth. The Active Cosmetics Division had its best year ever, with La Roche-Posay sales exceeding one billion euros. Growth at the Consumer Products Division was boosted by L’Oréal Paris which had a great year. Lastly, growth improved in the Professional Products Division; the highlight was the double-digit performance of Kérastase.

"E-commerce and travel retail, which are also powerful growth drivers, contributed strongly to the group’s success. E-commerce grew spectacularly by +52.4% 6 and accounts for 15.6% of sales. Travel retail maintained its strong momentum and posted growth of +25.3%."
