Caudalie opens its Asian flagship boutique in Hong Kong (with photos)

     French skincare company, Caudalie, opened its first boutique in Hong Kong today (November 7), as part of its strategic expansion plan in the region.

     The two-storey boutique on Gough Street in Central offers Caudalie's unique products and selected treatments from Vinothérapie® Spas, which claim as using grapes and grapevines as well as their beneficial antioxidant on skin. Apart from the street level retail shop, the company also set up its regional office in Hong Kong, to oversee the marketing activities of the brand in the region and act as an interface with the Paris headquarters.

     The Regional Director (Asia Pacific) of Caudalie Hong Kong Ltd, Ms Cecile Ossola, said that Hong Kong was chosen as the company's third regional office in the world after Paris and New York because of the city's strategic location in Asia and the ease of hiring cosmetic professionals.

     She said, "We have very exciting projects for Asia, so choosing the right anchor point is an important first step. Our main challenge is to increase our brand awareness, reach new customers and promote the benefits of our products. We have a very creative communication team working closely with journalists and bloggers. Hong Kong offers an excellent platform for us to start with all these initiatives in Asia." She added that a series of anti-ageing products will soon be introduced to Hong Kong to cope with the huge demand for cutting edge beauty products.

     The Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Mr Andrew Davis, welcomed Caudalie and said, "Beauty and skincare products take up a large share of Hong Kong's retail industry. Although there are new brands joining the market almost every day, customers' demand for quality skincare and cosmetics remains sufficient enough to accept overseas brands such as Caudalie. I believe that the market will continue to thrive and attract newcomers."
