    Beauty retail store in Peru
    posted by Midori Pinillos Teruya

    I propose to launch a chain of beauty retail stores in Peru that will offer high quality Asian and North American skincare and cosmetic products. Latin America is the fastest growing region for the beauty industry and Peru is experiencing consistent growth of the middle class. With more disposable income, Peruvians are more concerned with beauty and personal care. Skin care and cosmetics in Peru have been confined to catalogue direct selling by 3 main brands that are medium to low quality.

Socks that work. Join the Business Sock Revolution!
