L’Oréal Paris, the world’s leading beauty brand celebrated Women’s Month via a series of powerful moments at the Riyadh Boulevard in Saudi Arabia on March 21st and 22nd to showcase the brand’s commitment to empowering women.

The celebration started on March 21st with a “Lessons of Worth” private event gathering over 100 prominent figures of the industry in the heart of Riyadh. The event opened with an astounding projection where L’Oréal Paris took over 82 screens in the Boulevard to showcase the brand manifesto and Lessons of Worth testimonial by the brand’s Saudi spokesperson – singer and actor, Aseel Omran. The “Lessons of Worth” is a series of powerful testimonials featuring the L’Oréal Paris spokespeople from around the globe sharing what the iconic “Because You Are Worth It” tagline means to them.


The projection was followed by a panel discussion on women empowerment between Aseel Omran, Maya Ghantous- Director of the L’Oréal Consumer Products Division for Middle East & North Africa and Ahmed Wagih – General Manager of the Consumer Products Division at L’Oréal Middle East. The discussion centered around Aseel’s own personal empowerment journey, her partnership with L’Oréal Paris and what the brand slogan “Because You Are Worth It” means to her.

This makes her an excellent idol for young women and the perfect ambassador for our brand.” said Ahmed Wagih.


The celebration continued on March 22nd where L’Oréal Paris presented a series of activities led by inspirational women in the region:

  • A panel by Dr Razan, a highly renowned consultant dermatologist in the region, explaining the

science behind L’Oréal Paris’ products. Thanks to 110 years of scientific research and innovation, L’Oréal Paris presents a complete range of highly advanced beauty products with clinically proven efficacy and safety in five categories: makeup, skincare, haircare, and hair colour.

Because I’m worth it”, the world’s leading beauty brand signature that’s just celebrated its

50th anniversary, was the first in the world to underline the value of self-worth. Coined in 1971 by Ilon Specht, a young 23-year-old female copywriter at Manhattan ad agency McCann, the L’Oréal Paris

signature was considered revolutionary at the time in its bold message and in that it featured a woman’s voice (most advertisements for women’s products at the time featured a male voice, which was thought to be more authoritative). “Because We’re Worth It” has since become symbolic with empowering women of all ages and backgrounds to believe in their beauty and sense of worth. Since its inception, the memorable slogan has been translated into 40 languages, reflecting the brand’s global expansion and diverse notion of beauty.


The United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland Promote European Dairy Creams in Saudi Market

The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland (DCNI) is an organization established to promote the consumption of United Kingdom dairy products, and advocate their health benefits.

Dairy products from the United Kingdom are produced to the high standards of the European Union, promising to deliver products with the best quality possible. All dairy farms are registered and milk processing plants are approved by a relevant enforcement authority (the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) on behalf of the Food Standards Agency (FSA) or local Authority). Comprehensive inspection programs including milk purchasing, haulage, raw milk supply, product manufacturing and distribution are carried out on a regular basis to ensure all quality and food safety standards are met.dcni-1-copy

Beside regulatory requirements, the weather and landscape of the United Kingdom is ideal for the growth of lush green grass that dairy cows consume as their main source of nutrition. These cows then produce high quality milk that is manufactured into superior, nutritious dairy products.

Dairy farms in the United Kingdom are family owned and are passed down from one generation to the next. The milk processing facilities are mainly owned and managed by farmers’ co-operatives, extending this ownership ethos throughout the supply chain.

Some of the leading brands within the DCNI are available in up to 80 countries, and pride themselves in producing dairy-based products with utmost care. Dairy companies from the United Kingdom always set high standards and ensure that all requirements are met.

For example, some products have been present in Saudi Arabia for many years and are used by many famous food service outlets and food manufacturers throughout the Kingdom.
