Teaology eyes brick-and-mortar expansion in China as online competition intensifies

Italian skin care brand Teaology has its sights set on building a physical retail presence in China as competition through cross-border e-commerce heats up.

“On Tmall, the brand is doing well but it’s not like 2015 or 2016. Right now, its all diluted because the market is too crowded. The boom in Tmall, Little Red Book – these made it too easy for everyone to be there so everyone was there,” said CEO Paolo Bevegni.

The firm highlighted that SHISEIDO’s Revitalessence Skin Glow Foundation was responsible for capturing a large share of new customers.
