France is one of the world’s leading exporters of cosmetics

Cosmetics has become the second-largest export sector behind aeronautics in France. For ten years, exports have grown by an annual average of 10%, with a new record in 2019, at €15.7 billion in sales. French companies export more than 50% of their production with Germany, the United States, and Singapore as their primary markets. Major French cosmetic brands are among the leaders in the Nordic Countries, led by L’Oréal.


Know-how and innovation are the strengths of the French cosmetics industry

Beyond the French heritage and know-how, the products’ safety and quality are unanimously recognized and guaranteed by European regulations that are the strictest in the world. But it is also the capacity for innovation, from product conception to marketing, that explains France’s competitiveness. The country has a unique cosmetics ecosystem. It has large groups and nearly 85% of SMEs and world-class education programs, research centers, and much more (competitiveness clusters such as Cosmetic Valley and Innov’Alliance). It is thus possible to innovate better and faster to anticipate consumers’ expectations and lead the trends.
