China’s Beauty market is #2 behind the US at US$71 billion (Euromonitor 2020), and it’s expected to be the world’s biggest in 3 years. Chinese women today are notably confident and embrace their own identity and style. Popularly, we call this "C-Beauty" as it competes with the more identifiable ‘J’ & ‘K-Beauty’. ShanghaiZhan welcomes Carol Zhou, Sr. Vice President for Innovation & Investments at Shiseido China to talk to us more about defining Chinese beauty and the big trends for the upcoming year.
In this episode we talk about:
1. Our newfound stardom as KOLs by hitting over 8000 downloads
2. Carol’s 2022 beauty resolutions
3. Carol’s journey to becoming a beauty expert and having the best job in the business
4. The rise of C-Beauty, beauty diversity & what Chinese women want?
6. Global brands balancing act in China: the girl with freckles are to be celebrated
7. The “clean beauty” trend in China: What it is and what it is not
8. “Adjacent spaces”: Shiseido’s innovation growth plans

10. Global vs. local beauty brands: who is leading where and why?
11. Offline or online? What’s the future of beauty offline as online continues to grow?

13. How has Covid affected the China beauty industry?
