L'Oreal to sell its retailer unit, The Body Shop

The Body Shop hasn't performed as well as the wider company, with a 6-percent decline in sales in the fourth quarter of 2016. L'Oreal's overall sales rose 5 percent in the same period.

French cosmetics maker L'Oreal has confirmed that it is considering the sale of its retail unit, The Body Shop.

Jean Paul Agon, CEO, said, said "it has been decided to explore all strategic options" for the subsidiary, but that the company had made no decisions yet. It was earlier reported that the business could be sold for about 1 billion euros (USD1.1 billion).

The Body Shop hasn't performed as well as the wider company, with a 6-percent decline in sales in the fourth quarter of 2016. L'Oreal's overall sales rose 5 percent in the same period.

Its net income, however, fell to 3.1 billion euros last year from 3.3 billion euros in 2015 due to one-time charges it booked.
