China Bans More Beauty Products From South Korea

February 15, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
China has banned more beauty care products from South Korea. In January 2017, China blocked the import of 19 cosmetics products from South Korea, citing “sanitary issues and other concerns.” Market observers, however, believe China’s action was in retaliation for South Korea’s installation of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense antiballistic missile system. Many of the products on the embargo list are made by smaller cosmetics brands, such as Iaso, Ottie, and Aekyung.
