To be as close as possible to our markets and suppliers, the L’Oréal teams in charge of purchasing are based all around the world. The strength of our international network of buyers lies in their ability to identify the suppliers who are best-suited to meeting the needs of the Group and all its brands.
This approach applies to all purchasing by the Group:
- Direct purchases for the manufacturing of cosmetic products (raw materials, packaging, industrial equipment, sub-contracting, etc.)
- Indirect purchases for corporate functions (marketing and IT departments, logistics, stationery, point-of-sale advertising, etc.)

Along with a desire for efficiency, our cooperation with our suppliers is based on a number of essential criteria: quality, a commitment to responsibility, innovation, service levels and competitiveness. To ensure that our suppliers fulfill their commitments to these criteria, we carry out systematic audits during the selection phase and throughout the duration of the partnership.
