L’Oreal: how to save on quality products
Men and women across the world consistently turn to one company when wanting to choose the highest quality of beauty and personal care products. That company is L’Oreal. The biggest beauty product company in the world, this vastly successful Paris-based empire includes popular brands such as Maybelline and Lancome, and is well-known across the globe for its scientifically perfected yet affordable products.
In 1909, young chemical engineer Eugene Schueller used his expertise in chemistry to design a hair dye formula he named “Oreal.” This dye greatly differed from others currently on the market: dyes which were made up of henna and mineral salts. Schueller created his dye out of harmless chemical compounds, creating a softer appearance in contrast to the market’s artificial-looking colors. Believing he had a product worthy of promotion, he sold the dye to a group of hairdressers in Paris. He soon realized the importance of performing extensive research on beauty products and with that mindset began what would soon become a century-long journey of success for the company L’Oreal.
Schueller’s scientifically engineered hair dye paved the way for the creation of such products as modern shampoos, original perfumes and innovative cosmetics like lip-sticks that stay on their wearer’s lips all day long without rubbing off. As L’Oreal grew rapidly, its members opened up laboratories across the world, allowing for even more advancements in the beauty and personal care field. L’Oreal continued to improve hair, beauty and hygiene products and over the years has acquired and become partners with many other successful companies, including the following:
• Maybelline New York
• CCB Paris
• The Body Shop
• Helena Rubinstein
• Shu Uemura
• Giorgio Armani
• Ralph Lauren
After proudly celebrating its 100th birthday in 2009, the L’Oreal empire continues to thrive, creating innovative new products to this day.
L’Oreal’s slogan, “Because you’re worth it,” is one of the most well-known in the beauty industry. “Maybe she’s born with it… Maybe it’s Maybelline” is also a popular, recognizable saying used for the popular cosmetics line. Some of the world’s most beautiful celebrities have helped promote L’Oreal and Maybelline products. Famous actresses and musicians like Andie MacDowell, Jennifer Aniston, Beyonce, Eva Longoria Parker, Diane Keaton, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba and Milla Jovovich have appeared in their TV ads.
Perhaps one of the most popular products by L’Oreal Paris is of course their hair dyes.
