Who is Lancome owned by?

Lancome is owned by L’Oreal Corporation. Sometimes the owner brand is mistaken to be Estee Lauder. But Estee Lauder doesn’t own Lancome.

Talking about Estee, I quickly want to point out that Estee Lauder is not cruelty-free. (It’s sad because I loved its premium lipsticks. But it’s what it’s.)
