L’Oréal has received a permanent injunction instructing it to end the sale of nine hair care products as well as treatments for the likes of Matrix, Redken and L’Oréal Professional.
Applicable to the U.S., the injunction follows the recent ruling in the two-year court battle with Olaplex, which accused the French beauty giant of staging a buyout in order to steal its intellectual property.
As we reported last week, a U.S. jury ruled in favor of Olaplex, with L’Oréal said to have breached two Olaplex patents, trade secret theft and a breach of confidentiality. L’Oréal was ordered to pay the company damages amounting to $100 million.
L’Oréal filed an appeal against the verdict on 16th August.
