Lemonbox sells American health supplements to Chinese millennials via online channels. It has previously attracted $2 million in seed funding from Y Combinator.
With the new proceeds, LemonBox is opening a second fulfillment center in the Shenzhen free-trade zone, after its Silicon Valley-based one, to provide more stability to its supply chain.
The start-up will also spend the money on securing health-related certificates and adding Japan to its sourcing regions.
