Looking For A Great Cosmetic Manufacturer...

Unknown Member
edited November 2014 in Requests / Opportunities
Hi Everyone!

My name is Stephanie and I will be launching my skin care late 2015 - amazingly, there are two large retail chains interested in carrying my line... but, I am not quite ready to go to that step. 

My question to anyone out there is: Do you know of a good cosmetic manufacturer? I don't care how large or small of a company they may be.

Being from the South, I am a firm believer in friendships and being more than just a client/customer, and would love to find a manufacturer that takes a personal interest in me and my products.

We are just finishing the testing/trials portion of the process, and will be looking into speaking with someone anytime now.

Thank you so much in advance for any help :)

Stephanie

    Stephanie,

    My first question to you is whether or not you will be selling private label products, or contracting out the manufacture of your own formulas? Or something in-between?

    If you want to start relatively low-key, my first recommendation would be to talk to Mark Fuller, @microformulations, for his advice.

    Alternatively, you could jump in with both feet, and start talking to contract manufacturers by your self.

    Since the company I work for, Beaumont Products (in Kennesaw, GA) operates as a contract and private label manufacturer, as well as a manufacturer for our own products, I don't feel comfortable recommending competitors.

    I would be happy to talk to you more about this privately, however. Feel free to send me a message here or on LinkedIn, https://www.linkedin.com/pub/robert-zonis/1/841/568
