Abstract:

The business of L'Oreal is beauty. It is the world's largest cosmetics firm. This startling book shows the other face of beauty. It is the story of how this giant company became a haven for ex-Nazis. It reveals the illegal alliance the L'Oreal forged with the Arab Boycott Bureau. And it brings to light the secret link between the L'Oreal high command and the President of France himself, Francois Mitterrand -- a link cast in the darkness of the Nazi past. Above all, it tells the story of what happened when L'Oreal partner Jean Frydman, a former French Resistance hero who had fought against anti-Semitism all his life, stumbled upon and exposed the shocking truth about L'Oreal and its web of concealed Nazi collaborators. Making it his crusade to unmask the cosmetics firm's long history of Nazi connections, Frydman filed suit against L'Oreal for forgery, perjury, and racial discrimination.
