In 2006 Natura opened its first European subsidiary with headquarters in Paris, France. Following the company concept, Natura was proposing its products through a network of 2,000 Consultants around France. In order to spread its products and values on the mature European market to a maximum number of European consumers, its products & values, Natura had to take important steps and introduce some changes to the existing sales model – they opened the first physical store in Paris and decided to launch e-commerce sales.
