The article focuses on the growing demand for cosmetics and personal care products in China. According to Euromonitor, China's market for cosmetics and toiletries is expected to grow by two-thirds from around $12 billion to about $19 billion. The impetus comes from China's growing economy with a gross domestic product (GDP) that is expanding 10-11% annually, and the ability of multinational companies to exploit the preference of the urban Chinese for Western fashions and products.
