L’Oréal singled out its eCommerce growth of 25.7% as one of the driving forces behind its successful 2021, which was marked by an overall 16.1% increase in sales, twice the industry standard, according to the company, to 32.28 billion euros ($36.82 billion).
L’Oréal’s eCommerce growth accounted for 28.9% of the company’s overall 2021 sales, according to its earnings report released Wednesday (Feb. 9).
