Five people have been jailed for making fake L'Oreal skin care products worth 3.25 million yuan (US$474,459), according to Shanghai No.3 Intermediate People's Court.

The five men were recruited by Zhu Jun in February 2017 to make skin care products and package them in containers printed with L'Oreal trademarks at a rented factory workshop in Pudong, the court said.

Pudong police raided the underground workshop on June 15, 2017, where they nabbed five workers and confiscated 12,612 bottles of L'Oreal men's cleaning foam.

According to L'Oreal, they were all fake. Pudong's pricing authority said the products could have been sold at 3.25 million yuan.

On charges of counterfeiting a registered trademark, the five received jail terms ranging from 30 months to 33 months. Zhu will stand in a separate trial, the court said.
