1. Manufacturing Your Products

Choosing a manufacturer for your skincare products is a major stepping stone in your production process, but it will be easy decision once you’ve connected with Cosmetic Solutions. We utilize a Lean Manufacturing Approach throughout the production process to optimize the workflow and minimize waste. We ensure our entire team is highly trained, and we employ the latest technological equipment to produce advanced, professional quality skincare products on fluid production lines.

Every step of our versatile manufacturing process has been analyzed for maximum efficiency, including mixing, filling, capping, coding, labeling, safety sealing, packaging, and shipping. This process has allowed us to generate savings internally, which we pass on to our clients.

2. Picking Your Packaging

Once your product manufacturing has begun, your account executive will guide you through our packaging choices. We have a complete onsite showroom dedicated to packaging options. And while it could be a challenging task, we will make it easy for you. After a few key questions regarding your brand, vision, and budget, your account executive will help you select a range of product packaging options to create a cohesive and impressive look.

While we have a varied range of packaging options that are included in the product cost, some available options are considered an upgrade and may incur a nominal charge. Your account executive will guide you through the varied packaging options.

3. Establishing Your Brand Identity

Now that your new skincare products are manufactured and your packaging has been chosen, you will move on to discussing your brand. It’s important that you understand WHO you are selling to, as well as WHO you are as a company.

While this task could also be intimidating, we will walk you through a branding brief that will ask you simple questions about your brand, to create a look that resonates with you and your customers.
