Foundation

The Yves Rocher Foundation was founded in 1991 by Yves Rocher under the aegis of the institute of France since 2001.

Controversy

Yves Rocher Vostok, the company's East Europe subsidiary, sued Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny and his brother for fraud and money laundering. Novaya Gazeta accused Bruno Leproux, managing director of Yves Rocher Vostok, of assisting Russian government's repressions against Alexei Navalny.[1][2]

Since August 2014 movement "One Question for Yves Rocher"[3] has been expanding in Europe in order to make Yves Rocher corporation to take a definitive position on the case against Navalny.
