In its report, Shiseido Company mentioned that the increased scope of control over COVID-19 (especially in March) affected the group’s sales in the offline channel in China, with a decline in sales.

In addition, the group expanded its online channels in China during the reporting period, specifically through the presence on JD and Tik Tok China.
CHAILEEDO will continue to follow up and report on whether Shiseido Company will be able to turn a profit in China, the group’s second largest market, in the second quarter due to the good performance in the 618 Shopping Festival.
