But today there is an ever-widening selection of causes and claims made by the beauty industry that continue to capture people's imagination. There is now heightened interest in eco-friendly and fair trade beauty products. And it is French women who are again leading the way. Although one in five (20%) British women want their beauty products to have packaging that is recyclable, this rises to 25% among French women. And when it comes to fair trade products, French women (16%) are twice as likely as British women (8%) to look for this.

* Includes products that are fair trade, not tested on animals, that support a charity and that are environmentally friendly or have environmentally friendly packaging.
