The world leader in beauty, L’Oréal is present in 130 countries on five continents. Our 32 international brands have allowed us to devote ourselves solely to one business: beauty, with a mission to provide the best in cosmetics innovation to all women and men around the world. We want to bring beauty to all people.

Our ambition by 2020 is to win over another one billion consumers around the world by creating the cosmetic products that meet the infinite diversity of their beauty needs and desires through continued digital innovation. L’Oréal encourages diversity and sustainable, ethical sourcing for all our products and we have reduced our emissions by approx. 50% since 2005.  Our brands are leaders in beauty, and we are looking for you to lead the change you want to see in L’Oréal.




The Active Cosmetics Division  has enjoyed double digit growth for 10 years and now contributes 12% of L'Oréal UKI numbers, consistently delivering 50%+ contribution to growth over the last 3 years. In 2020 we are currently the only division in the UK and in Europe who can boast performance of +24% to budget year to date and +39% year on year. All this has not happened by luck alone, we were already tracking considerably ahead on our e-commerce participation (was 28% in 2019) which gave us the springboard to rocket this channel way beyond our target when COVID hit (currently tracking at 50% year to date). The good news doesn’t stop there, we were the only brands to keep promotional activity on sun in Boots and our Superdrug store distribution has continued to expand even during lockdown enabling positive performance despite very challenging circumstances. We are obsessed about the integrity of our brands which are  co-developed, recommended and prescribed by health professionals, including dermatologists, paediatricians and cosmetic doctors around the world. There is plenty of further opportunity to grow through unlocking new consumers and new distribution, but the long-term success of our brands will come from doing this carefully, maintaining our category approach.
