2006 : The company uses nanoparticles in its creams. The small size of the nanoparticules opens the access to the respiratory tracts to them, they penetrate the cells and their core. They pass even the famous the hemato-encephalic barrier. The studies showed that below 4 nanometers the particles go through the axons of the olfactive nerves, despize of the barrier to settle in the central nervous system. Their miniaturization dopes also the effect of the atoms of surface, which makes them more reactive. They can adsorb molecules of the environment and become thus vectors of pollution. As for the form very lengthened of some nanofibres like the carbon nanotubes, of research showed that the cells do not know the phagocyter. It is as well established today as the particles accumulate in fabrics. Vis-a-vis with this cocktail of effects, the cell can badly react with a loss of functions, a hyperactivity or a disturbance of its cycle. The researchers think that it acts of a phenomenon of stress oxidizing on the lipids, proteins and nucleic acids of the cell. Results published into 2006 validate this assumption. Final, the organization answers by an ignition.Les Echos

2007 L'Oréal, Clarins, LVMH, Chanel, Procter & Gamble, Coty, Estee Lauder, Shiseido and PPR were fined 10 millions euros by the German Federal Cartel Office for sharing data on a 1.5 billion euros german cosmetics market. A probe by the cartel office revealed that the companies exchanged data since 1995 including plans to increase prices. Nine current or former managers were also penalized. "Because of the exchange of information, there's the danger that cosmetic companies coordinate their market behavior".    
2006 Chanel condemned for illegal agreement between 13 perfumers, of which Chanel, Dior, the St. Laurent or Guerlain, and 3 distributors, Marionnaud, Nocibé and Sephora, so that the perfumes are sold at a flat price to the consumer in France. The suppliers set up a "police force" which set up controls, put pressures and threatened retailers which wanted to sell at a lowere prices to commercial reprisals. Thus, the consumer found his branded perfume at various retailers at the same price and could not benefit from a fair competition. Total fine of 29 million euros.     Conseil de la concurrence
