  • Looking for chemist/manufacturer for Asian-inspired skincare line

    Posted by jpsmax on April 9, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Hi, I am a dermatology nurse practitioner with a background in biochemistry. I am looking to develop a luxury skincare brand with Asian influences. It would contain ingredients sourced from Japan/Korea and Europe. Any suggestions of skincare manufacturers who would specialize in this?

    What kind of products- creams/lotions, haircare? Packaged in tubes or bottles jars? Every company has their strengths and core competencies , your best fit will probably require some searching.
    What kind of order size are you looking to do? This is probably the first important question because most CMs have a minimum order requirement. 

    There is a whole post where people list their various kinds of formulating services, that could be a good starting place

    I’m looking to create an entire Asian-inspired skincare line with serums, moisturizers, eye cream, skin lighteners, sheet masks, and sunscreens. The line will be results-driven but I also want it to look/feel/smell luxurious - the user experience should be enjoyable.

    As far as quantity, I am looking to make about 1000 of each product for the first order. Hopefully there will be more orders after that.

    Hi,
    we are an European company developing and producing certified organic private label skincare products. We are focused on a healthy microbiome and experienced in using Korean raw materials like fermented extracts etc.

    To give us an idea of your needs, could you please answer some questions:
    Where do you want to launch your cosmetic line?
    Do you already have formulations or an idea of what they could look like?
    Did you already select raw materials, packages and suppliers?
    When do you want to start your business?

    Unless you do a private label sunscreen or make *very* small changes (like scent or adding ‘actives’ below 1%) to an existing base, this will get extremely expensive- in the US because sunscreen is a drug there is more rigorous testing and you can expect to pay ~30-50,000 for development at most places

    Hello, Jpsmax. I realize this is an old article, but I’ll go ahead and introduce our company anyhow. Cosmo Beauty is a high-end contract manufacturer based in Japan. Your products will be proudly labeled “Made in Japan” by us.

    Hi,
    Our company Indochine Natural was launched in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, and in 2009 we relocated our factory to Penang Island, Malaysia.

    Our Inspiration

    First,
    the historic spice trade that existed between Indochina and Europe.
    Aromatics have always been highly prized articles of luxury and
    refinement.

    Trade routes developed in the relentless search for fragrance
    ingredients. From Indochina, sailing ships carried ginger, nutmeg,
    saffron, and cloves to Europe. Too precious to eat, they were used in
    fragrant formulations to scent the body.

    The second was a street in Ha Noi named Lang Ong after the medic and
    writer Hai Thuong Lan Ong (1724-1791). Today you can still find all
    kinds of herbs and traditional medicine on Lan Ong street. It was the
    atmosphere and aromas of this street that influenced the founding of
    Indochine Natural.

    Indochine Natural moved to Penang Island, Malaysia in 2009. A place of
    beauty and intrigue since its time at the centre of the spice trade in
    the eighteenth century. The island became a key maritime base for trade
    routes from Europe, the Orient, India, and China.

    This rich history inspires our products. We formulate products with the all-natural, evocative fragrances of the spice route.
