Cosmetics sector distribution in France 2019, by product

Within the cosmetics sector in France, the segment of beauty and personal care products is the most valuable. It represented more than one quarter of the sector’s total revenue in 2019, whereas make-up products accounted for nine percent.  Furthermore, the cosmetic market generated 22 percent of its sales from perfumes.

Cosmetic consumption among the French

  When it comes to body, hair and facial care habits, nearly half of French surveyed in 2018 declare using various care products such as moisturizers, lotions and hair masks.  Moreover, it appears that both men and women spend around 300 euros a year on cosmetics, health and well-being purchases. The French seem to buy cosmetic products mostly at retailers or at specialized cosmetic care shops.  

Organic cosmetics and DIY

   Within the market for cosmetics, French women appear to purchase more and more organic cosmetic products: from 33 percent in 2010 to 58 percent of responding women who did so in 2018. In addition to this, DIY (do-it-yourself) practices regarding beauty products, while still minor, are also appearing in the habits of consumers in France: 11 percent of surveyed households stated making their own beauty products in 2020, and 30 percent of them reported wanting to do so.
