Yves Saint Laurent Beauty continues its unbridled love affair with women

In the wake of Saint Laurent, who showcased the spirit of the times for nearly 40 years, YSL Beauty continues its commitment today in the fight against intimate partner violence through ABUSE IS NOT LOVE by supporting partners and leveraging its voice through worldwide awareness program to help people identify the warning signs that can come with an abusive relationship.

YSL Beauty commits to funding academic research, training its employees, and educating 2 million people by 2030 on intimate partner violence through partnerships with non-profits organizations.

YSL Beauty created Abuse is Not Love in 2020 to prevent and fight against intimate partner violence, a global issue experienced by 1 out of 3 women in their lifetime. This staggering statistic shows that IPV continues to be a major societal issue where even today, only a small portion of survivors will obtain justice.


"YSL Beauty creates beauty that dresses the change. So, it felt natural to work on fighting IPV, an issue that stood in direct opposition to our core values and beliefs"
