L'Oréal USA signs agreement

to acquire Essie Cosmetics

L'Oréal USA today announced the signature of an agreement to acquire Essie Cosmetics, the ultimate nail color authority in the US, founded in 1981 by Essie Weingarten, and mainly sold in American salons and spas.

Essie's net sales through the last 12-month period were $28 million.
