Chinese businessman seeks to sell Ivanka Trump menstrual pads
Ivanka Trump's daughter Arabella became a viral sensation in China after a video of the 5-year-old speaking Mandarin made its rounds on social media -- and now, her famous mom is following suit.
So much so, that Chinese companies are hoping to capitalize on the First Daughter's name. There are more than 250 trademark applications pending for the name "Ivanka," according to the Washington Post. And one of those companies, Foshan Bainuo Sanitary Products, happens to sell menstrual pads.
"I have to try," founder Li Jun told the Post. "I can't let go of such a good name from this influential woman for our sanitary napkins."
"I first saw her giving a speech on television to support her father's election," he continued. "I was captivated by her incomparable disposition and air, even the way she tucked her hair behind her ear. Her speech was full of elegance and charisma ... I believe she is a very positive role model for all women."
While competition is high for Li and his company, Foshan Yiwanka Medical Management had the astute foresight to register its name before the election. (New York Magazine notes "yiwanka," or 依万卡, is the Chinese translation of the name Ivanka.)
"No doubt young women here want Ivanka's big eyes, her pretty nose and lips and her flawless figure," its HR manager said.
Ivanka might want to hop on the beauty and sanitary markets before others snatch it up first!
