  • Natura

Brazil's Natura Cosméticos wants to double earnings at The Body Shop, the UK-based retailer it acquired last year, as part of a wider global push to expand its sustainable and ethically-orientated brands globally, Financial Times has reported. The South American cosmetics group will unveil the new corporate brand Natura &Co that will pull together its various businesses, including The Body Shop as well as Australia's Aesop.Mr Marques, a Natura board member and former executive at Johnson & Johnson and Mondelez, was put in charge to lead the group and build the synergies of the brands. Natura was founded in São Paulo in 1969 by Luiz Seabra, and now ranks as the world's 28th most valuable cosmetics brand, according to consultancy Brand Finance. With the acquisition of The Body Shop for an enterprise value of €1bn, which was finalised last September, and that of Aesop in 2013, Natura &Co will generate 54 per cent of sales outside of Brazil, mainly in Latin America, the UK and the US.
