MICHAEL SHAW, Executive Director of BOU EKI COMPANY LTD speaks on a competitive industry and its evolving markets in Asia.


We aim at promoting interesting, kawaii, best quality products from Japan with reasonable prices. Being of the best-buy cosmetic brand in chain stores in Japan, thousands of Asian ladies are becoming loyal users worldwide. New products are frequently reviewed in women’ magazines , and are also very popular at our “ Word of Mouth Site”. The number of repeat customers is increasing daily,” claims Michael Shaw, the company’s Executive Director.

“Quality assurance is always the major concern from our supplier. Reasonable price is also the major factor for us to maintain a steady growth of sales from the pass years. Manpower is also the problem for us. It’s very difficult to employ enough staff to finish all the workload all the time.” 

Quality of Life

Canmake is established over 30 years in 2016, endorsed not only by teenagers and young office ladies, but also professional makeup artists. We aim at offering better shopping experience and products to let our customers enjoy interesting and joyful beauty practice in everyday life. We have set up our own on-line store,” Shaw explains.

“In this business you have to be passionate about providing your customers with valuable products. It is a business that calls for a high level of energy, affection and enthusiasm. In a way, this business is about selflessness. You have to want to see people making their lives more beautiful with fun and joy. So in a sense we are about bringing a better quality of life to people. Our beauty products are reliable, durable and trendy which is why we have a growing loyal fan base. We expect to keep growing slowly but surely and enjoying the pragmatic growth Hong Kong’s best brands are known for. Winning this prestigious Award is a huge accomplishment for my staff and our markets. We thank our customers for their support and pledge to bring them the best products possible,” concludes Shaw.
