Discovering beauty, creating beauty, spreading beauty
At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread over the country, and the communication between the countries was gradually interrupted. Faced with difficulties, Beautéville established the Beautéville Investment Office in Korea in June 2020 to play an important role in deepening cooperation and exchange between China and Korea and realizing the dream of China's cosmetic industry under the pandemic. In terms of international connection and cooperation, the office provides a good platform and window for enterprises to better connect with Korean cosmetic companies and associations and reach cooperation.
Creating the "Oriental Grasse"
The dream of Hou Juncheng, chairman of PROYA Cosmetics Co., Ltd. and general consultant of Beautéville, is to create an "Oriental Grasse" in China. Although there are boundaries between countries, there are no boundaries between the global cosmetic industry. As a link and bridge between the global cosmetic industry, Beautéville introduces high-end cosmetic terminals and supporting industries at home and abroad, and is a big platform for high-quality cosmetic enterprises all over the world to gather, so that Chinese cosmetic enterprises can have a more global vision and a higher pattern through communication, cooperation and resource sharing.

During the construction of Beautéville, Hou Juncheng realized that it was difficult for SMEs with excellent technology but insufficient capital to enter the Chinese market. Therefore, Beautéville policies from the standpoint of enterprises and entrepreneurs, and operates in the innovative mode of "government + enterprise + fund", and the entry of social capital helps integrate resources across borders and integrate development. At the same time, for those foreign enterprises who don't know much about China's system and market, Beautéville introduces one-to-one supporting services, which solves all kinds of difficulties for enterprises.
As the only core bearing area of the cosmetic industry in Zhejiang Province during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Beautéville has introduced 165 enterprises, including 151 cosmetic and related enterprises, with a total planned investment of 31.6 billion yuan. Hou Juncheng stressed that the success of Beautéville is closely related to the settlement of Korean enterprises, such as IT’S HANBUL, YONWOO, COSON and other famous Korean cosmetic enterprises.

The worries of Korean cosmetic companies

Due to the rapid growth of Chinese cosmetics enterprises, Korean cosmetics enter the Chinese market, and its development in China is more and more difficult. In order to solve these problems, Beautéville Korea Investment Promotion Office signed a Letter of Intent for Cooperation with Korea Beauty Industry Trade Association (KOBITA) and Korea Cosmetics OEM Association in November 2020, sharing the advantages and development vision of Beautéville as the association's Chinese partner and inviting Korean companies and associations to visit Beautéville after the pandemic.
