From the perspective of globalization, every company aims to become increasingly competitive. With the phenomenon of the opening up of national economies and foreign markets, the only way to cope with increased competition in all sectors is by boosting the exports. Also, SMEs and their counterparts in large firms should internationalize and adopt expansionary policies to enable them to tap into international markets that are becoming increasingly popular.
Some industries are evolving faster than others, and this is partly due to the progress made in research and development, which allows them to be more efficient. It can also be attributed to consumer demands that push them to innovate so that they do not suffer losses and lose market share. The cosmetics industry is a perfect example of this scenario. It is evident that this business is booming and also changing due to the new requirements on the scene. We live in a society where "culture of beauty" is highlighted, and occupies an important place in our lives.
Furthermore, constant supply of new beauty products amplifies this phenomenon by acquiring an important part in our everyday consumption. It is obvious that we pay attention to our own personality and consume more of such products. This phenomenon is particularly visible in the male clientele that is growing at an unexpected speed. Nature as a source of beauty has been the creed of the Yves Rocher brand. The brand is named after its creator and has been in existence for more than 40 years.
The history of this brand is primarily the story of its creator, who invented the concept of beauty through plants and distance selling, while revitalizing the economy of its Brittany region. Yves Rocher was born in La Gacilly in 1958. Obsessed with the idea of creating jobs to revive his country, Yves Rocher got an idea to start a business that dealt with nature and the beauty of women.
Originally from Brittany, Yves Rocher slowly grew to become an international brand. It is a pioneer and a leader in the organic cosmetics sector: the organic knowledge and intelligence was the heart of innovation in science laboratories. The Yves Rocher brand offered products for all the skin types. The organization: Today, the Yves Rocher group is present in 88 countries and has over 40 million customers in five continents and the group mainly targets the women.
With a capital of trust, built over its history, the group once again consolidated its positions. Nevertheless, the year 2003 was marked by new political and economic shocks that have strongly influenced the performance of all the major cosmetic companies in the world with unfavorable exchange rates in the euro zone and slower consumption in major markets. Yves Rocher registered a turnover of two billion euros and its position as a major player in the world of beauty and wellness was confirmed by its presence in the world.
