Shenzhen, China. June 27, 2019 - Azoya, a Shenzhen-based cross-border e-commerce enabler, is announcing the official launch of Pixi Beauty's China e-commerce business.  Pixi launched its Xiaohongshu and WeChat stores earlier this month (June 12-13) and will be launching its Tmall Global flagship store later this year. 

Azoya will be responsible for day-to-day e-commerce operations across all platforms, as well as shipping, B2B distribution, retail marketing, and technical maintenance. Azoya will also assist Pixi with selling through Taobao stores and KOLs on various platforms, as well as working with other cross-border e-commerce retailers such as Feelunique and Perfume's Club. 

"We are particularly excited to be working with Pixi Beauty on its multichannel expansion in China. Chinese consumers prefer clean skincare products that use natural ingredients to enhance their skin, and Pixi's products are a great fit for this market. We believe that Pixi has the potential to become a major player in this space going forward," noted Azoya VP of International Business Ivy Shen. 

Pixi Beauty is a well-known British beauty brand that is particularly known for its Glow Tonic Serum, which acts as a natural liquid exfoliator. Pixi's products emphasize natural, botanical ingredients that work to enhance skin quality from deep within. 

The Pixi brand has been around for 20 years and has become particularly popular in the last two years, selling through Sephora retail stores in the United States. This popularity has spread through Chinese social media and gray-market daigou sellers, indicating strong demand for Pixi's products in the Chinese mainland.
