On June 24, Amazon (Amazon) announced that Amazon Professional Beauty Store, Amazon's professional cosmetics store, was on its official website. This means that professional stylists and beauticians can purchase professional cosmetic products directly from Amazon for salons or spas.
Amazon Professional Cosmetic Store's online impact on retailers of other professional cosmetic products to a certain extent. After the news came out, Sally Beauty, a professional makeup supplier, fell 16.78% to $12.30 a share as of June 24, while Ulta Beauty, the largest makeup retailer chain in the United States, fell 2.61% to $346.54 a share.
The main customers of professional cosmetic products are hairdressing salon and spa. Professional hairdressers who run these stores often need to buy a large number of professional cosmetic products. Professional cosmetics accounted for 41% of Sally Beauty's total sales, according to S&P Global Market Think Tank.
This fall in the share price of professional cosmetics retailers such as Sally Beauty can be said to be a typical "Amazon effect". That is to say, when Amazon enters a certain field, some investors will realize the competitive pressure it brings, and then sell the shares of other companies in this field.
