Shu Uemura Operations to Cease in the US
L'Oreal acquired the international rights to the Shu Uemura brand outside of Japan in 2000. The cosmetic industry, like many others has been hard hit by the economic downturn with this being the third US Cosmetic company to cease US distribution. Last year, Estee Lauder announced it would no longer globally distribute its Prescriptives brand as well as Procter & Gamble's decision to phase out their Max Factor brand in the US.
