Active cosmetics were up 5.7% to €1,861m. Body Shop products remained almost flat on a lfl basis at €920.8m (down 4.8% reported). Growth was driven by a favourable sales momentum in North America increasing by 5.8% to €7,099m and Asia Pacific edging up by 3.6% to €5,635m. The strong dynamism in Latin America and Eastern Europe raised sales to €1,838m (+11.1% lfl) and €1,571m (+10.4% lfl) respectively. The gross margin gained 40bp to 71.6% with a gross profit at €18,495m. Operating profit was up 3.5% to €4,540m, i.e. an operating margin of 17.6%.

Net profit retreated by 5.8% to €3,106m due to non-recurring charges of €541m net of tax, which corresponds mainly to the Magic and Clarisonic impairment impact. Gross cash surged by 7.2% to €4,717m. WCR remained almost flat and investments were consolidated to 5.4% of sales at €1,386m. The financial position remains strong with a positive net cash of €481m. The proposed dividend is €3.3, i.e. an increase of 6.45%.
