Support Small Businesses
L'Oréal Ireland announced that it has frozen the payments of its most vulnerable very small and small-sized customers in our distribution network, including hair salons, until their businesses resume.
Additionally, L'Oréal Ireland has shortened its payment times for small suppliers who have been most exposed to this economic crisis.
This commitment builds on the L’Oréal Group’s wider European solidarity programme announced globally on 18 March.
