During the quarter, Garnier accomplished double-digit development and continued to acquire market share, specifically in haircare with the success of Fructis Hair Food.

To that end, Garnier is partnering with National Geographic, a sustainability champ. “It’s a wonderful reference for the Marvels of the World,” Koskas said. “It’s also a media business with whom individuals engage. It’s ‘edu-tainment.'”

There’s absolutely no product packaging. The response leads expectations up until now.”
The Garnier president stated there was reluctance in the past on the part of customers, especially in the U.S., to utilize bar shampoos because the formulas were drying to the hair and the outcomes weren’t as great as liquid hair shampoos.

It’s ending up being a crucial topic. We only have ten years to make a distinction, so we require to act now. The worldwide economy is very encouraging for us.”

We’re proposing an eco-pad that provides to 1,000 usages, to be used together with our micellar water.”
Garnier, which has seen double-digit growth, particularly in the hair care classification, has actually been an intense sport for L’Oreal. “There’s an increased hunger for details on items and sustainability,” Koskas stated, including, “2020 was a wakeup require consumers.”
