for NATURAL & Organic COSMETICS
French Market Becomes Prominent
The French market for natural & organic cosmetics
has shown high growth to become the second largest in Europe. Revenues
were initially increasing by over 30% a year, however slower growth
rates have been observed since the financial crisis.
Increasing distribution is a major driver of market growth. Natural &
organic cosmetics have made most inroads in para-pharmacies and
mainstream retailers. Although the sales share has shrunk, specialist
retailers still comprise most product sales. Consumers are buying
natural & organic cosmetics because of concerns about synthetic
chemicals in cosmetics & toiletries.
The French market has experienced the highest number of new entrants and
new product launches in Europe. Many large cosmetic companies have
introduced natural & organic cosmetics, yet few have taken up
strong market positions. The L'Oreal Group is a frontrunner, with
several brands of natural and organic products. Retailer private labels
are also becoming popular; a wide range of certified natural and
organic cosmetics are marketed under retailer brands.
