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.
