Comments:

He barely had time to break in that new office. After taking over as chief executive last September, Olivier Bohuon left Pierre Fabre after just five months at the helm (he moved on to a post at Smith & Nephew’s medical device company).


Last month, Ducray Laboratories launched an awareness campaign for its new biodegradabale extra gentle shampoo formula. According to Fabre, the formula has been optimized for low environmental impact thanks to a complete analysis of its product life cycle. It is also paraben-free, phenoxyethanol-free and silicone-free, which reduces its impact on aquatic organisms by 84%, the company said.


Last year, founder Pierre Fabre was promoted to the ranks of Grand Cross of the Order of the Legion of Honour.
