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.

Manufacturing Capabilities

At Cosmetic Solutions, we manufacture all of our products right here in the USA, at our headquarters in beautiful Boca Raton, Florida. Our secure manufacturing facility is located on-site in our 65,000 square foot headquarters.

This facility houses state-of-the-art equipment that we have used to bring thousands of products successfully to market. Our facility is ISO 22716 certified, FDA-registered, and we stringently adhere to all GMP standards during formulation, production, and post-product processes. We also employ strict quality control procedures to ensure all products meet our purity and efficacy standards. We methodically and continuously test products during the formulation and development stages.

Cosmetic Solutions believes in being cruelty free. We NEVER tests our products on animals.

Equipment

Our manufacturing facility utilizes cutting-edge manufacturing equipment to guarantee the highest quality products for our customers during both high and low volume fills.

To run the operation, our facility is staffed by an educated and dedicated group of chemists and an incredibly knowledgeable clinical team.

Our formulas are mixed in our modern stainless steel mixers capable of both hot and cold mixing processes as well as accommodating a vast array of formulations, viscosities, and particle sizes.

All of our lines are equipped with semi-automatic and automatic fillers, cappers, and sealers. Mixed formulas are then processed on either our jar & bottle lines, or our tube lines. Products on our jar & bottle lines are filled and capped, while those on the tube lines are filled and sealed using heated and ultra-sonic equipment.

All products merge for the labeling process using our extensive assortment of labelers. Once labeled, they are coded using advanced inkjet and laser coders. Finally, we use heated sealing equipment to safety seal and shrink-wrap the products, which are then delivered to shipping.

We are committed to providing you with a streamlined, modern manufacturing facility, and will provide you with products of the highest efficacy and quality. Our highly qualified manufacturing team has a history of proven successes to help you build your line of skincare products.

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.

4. Designing Your Packaging

Once your branding has been established, your products created and packing chosen, we will move on to designing your packaging. At Cosmetic Solutions, this is much more that adding a logo to a preexisting label, this is a design process to translate your BRAND onto your skincare products.

Our design team will strategically design multiple versions of your labels for you to electronically review and provide feedback. Our streamlined creative process is both effective and efficient, ensuring you the fastest turnaround time possible.
