sales force was up by 4%.

Business conditions in Iran have deteriorated and this development has escalated
after the close of the quarter. For this reason Oriflame is now evaluating its
options in this market.




Six months ended 30 June 2010

(€656.8m)

"As planned we have during the spring focused considerable resources on top line
growth activities, and we start to see effects in line with our expectations
during the second quarter. These initiatives will, as previously communicated,
hold back profitability in the short term but we are happy with the development
and our outlook for the year remains", CEO Magnus Brännström comments.
