HISTORY – HK’s Iconic ‘Two Girls’ Kwong Sang Hong Cosmetics Brand 9

Any grandma in Hong Kong will speak fondly of the local ‘Two Girls’ cosmetics brand Kwong Sang Hong (KSH)…

Back in 1898, only a handful of rich families and expats could afford foreign cosmetics. Seeing a gap in the market, Fung Fook Tien launched KSH. Legend has it that Fung’s branding was inspired by two beautiful women he spotted in the street, whilst another version suggests they came to him in a dream. Either way, Hong Kongers loved the brand, if only because it ┬ácost ten times less than its competitors.
