L’Oreal Q & A Part 3

Are L’Oreal still involved with animal testing?

No. L’Oréal does not test any of its products or any of its ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world. Nor does L’Oréal delegate this task to others. An exception could only be made if regulatory authorities demanded it for safety or regulatory purposes.

What other ethical and community initiatives is L’Oreal involved with? 

We believe in the beauty of protecting the environment and biodiversity, the beauty of supporting communities and providing security for employees, the beauty of delivering desirable and sustainable products for women and men. 

By 2020, our ‘Sharing Beauty With All’ programme commits to:

  • Innovating sustainably: 100% of products have an environmental or social benefit.
  • Producing sustainably: Reducing our environmental footprint by 60% whilst attracting one billion new consumers.
  • Developing sustainably: we will enable more than 100,000 people from underprivileged communities to access work.
  • Living sustainably: We will empower every L’Oréal consumer to make sustainable consumption choices

Why should a graduate choose L’Oreal over professional services firm, tech firm or investment bank?

 We are the world’s largest beauty company, with 32 international brands. We’re at the forefront of innovation and encourage all of our employees to think outside the box with an entrepreneurial mind and spirit. Our employees are encouraged to take risks, find new alternatives and keep challenging the norms. This is what makes L’Oreal so exciting and no day the same. People are the reason L’Oreal is successful so we are very committed to investing in our junior talent in whichever scheme they join.

You have a mobile game on Debut, what is the reason for this?

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at L’Oréal – and what better way to innovate our recruitment process than through gamification. Being able to show candidates what L’Oréal UK & Ireland is really about is extremely exciting. We want to be able to reach candidates who would not necessarily consider L’Oreal as a place to work whilst also increasing the awareness of the 32 international brands that we have. We also want to challenge some of the stereotypes that L’Oreal is all about women and shampoo, which is why we wanted to focus on the different wings of the game.
