Where is SK-II produced?

SK-II is a Proctor and Gamble product. If they have a corporate site in Brazil, does this mean SK-II products are produced in Brazil? If Proctor and Gamble wanted to sell their products in Peru and did a joint venture, would they ship the products from Brazil? Opening a production plant in Peru wouldn't be cost effective right?

    I do know whether Procter and Gamble makes SK-II in Brazil, but the company having a website in Portuguese, or having a plant in Brazil, does not necessarily mean that it is made in Brazil. It could be that the company simply repackages the product and sells it under a Brazilian label, in order to fit regulations for that country (labels must be written in Portuguese) or to make it more adequate for that market (for example, to adjust the size of the container so that it is attractive to consumers in Latin American countries). Whether it is cost effective or not to make SK-II in Peru (assuming it is made in Brazil) depend on a series of assessments that they make regarding the size or individual characteristics of that market.
