Dr. G, last year made its first foray into the world's largest market through wholesalers, Wal-Mart and Amazon.

LG Household & Health Care Co., South Korea's No. 2 cosmetics maker, said that its international cosmetics brand VDL will be sold through China's online website, Tmall, a website for business-to-consumer online retail that is operated by Alibaba Group.
