  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
