Cosmetics Business to Start

The impression is that a cosmetics company is an expensive business to start. However, belying common assumption, you can actually start a home-based cosmetics manufacturing. You can make soaps, lotions and oils at home and sell them through small retail stores on consignments, at kiosks in malls, in your house, or in a rented space. The equipment and raw materials will cost only a few hundred dollars. Or you can approach a contract manufacturer to do make a line of cosmetics for you under your label. A contract manufacturer will fill your needs from producing to designing your label and packaging the product. Still another way is to represent or distribute the products of a cosmetic manufacturer in an area where they still have no presence.

Cosmetics Product Line

Here’s a long list of products you can sell: soaps, oils, masques, lotions, lip balms and glosses, lipstick, body powder, shampoos, hair conditioners, bubble baths, deodorant, scrubs, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, makeup remover, mascara, foundation, perfumes, nail polishes, mouthwashes, douches, anti-aging cream, aftershave, massage lotions, stretch mark lotion, and moisturizers. Sometimes, what it takes to succeed in this kind of business is a little twist: just improve on an existing cosmetic, and if the product becomes a hit, you will be rewarded greatly. Also, you can add in your merchandise miscellaneous items like purses and lingerie to boost profit.
You can offer a variety of products or you can specialize on those targeting specific markets: teens, babies, those interested in all-natural toiletries, those of darker skin color or those who prefer cosmetics with herbal additives.

Cosmetics Company Startup Cost and Profit

How much you should invest to start the business would depend on whether you will be making the products yourselves and at what capacity; or you will be outsourcing the job. Cosmetics manufactured by private label manufacturer could cost as low as $0.10 per item. And the good news is you can sell the items at several times their original manufacturing cost. Lipsticks are sold at an average of $11. For a home-based business, you can start with just about $1,000.

Cosmetics Business has an easy-to-use guide in buying raw materials, and supplies; in finding a contract manufacturer; and in finding suppliers of cosmetic manufacturing and packaging equipment, containers, and closures.

    You can start your own cosmetic line for as little as $500. Even lower than that with some sources in this guide. However, you should also budget for marketing, having a web presence, sampling, attending shows to promote your product, etc. The guide is really a directory of companies that can help you formulate your product, or that have ready-made products that you can put your brand name on.

But I am keen to undertake large scale retailing with products coming from India. Grateful, if someone could help us around. Noticed that many of you all have the desire for manufacturing. Hope by now you have indeed already started perhaps you could diversify your marketing segmentation to exports to Mauritus. With thanks Kavita

  • 98. Aakash Nigam said on March 14, 2011
    @James: Well, as I said earlier, we're trying to setup a manufacturing unit in Delhi. Now, which all licenses do I need to start this up? Initially we are going to start with just high end colognes for men. After speaking to 1000 people, I got to know that we need a bit more than just a Cosmetics License. Here is the short list of some of the licenses I got to know of:
    1. Cosmetics License
    2. Factory License
    3. Explosives License (for housing "Extra Neutralised Alcohol")
    4. Weights and measures license
    5. Packaging License
    And I'm sure there are some more. Man this is not an easy job. I'd appreciate it if a consultant could get in touch with me and perhaps guide me further.
    Regards, Aakash

    @iftiaq, this is a profitable business. You have to do it in a right way to achieve the maximum profit. Remember ebay has many tricks to drive maximum sellings though, learn some tricks and tips from web that are typically for eBay only. Your own website will be an advantage as well.

  • 114. Angie Parlionas beginner adviser said on April 30, 2011
    Many people are asking if it is difficult or costly to start a cosmetic company. I depends on your target audience and whom your end customer is. For example, my cosmetic company is called YOYO Lip Gloss, we geared the company for mass outlets such as Wal-Mart and needed a good amount of capital to find, test and secure factories for massive production. We also needed to have a market test to make sure customers were interested in purchasing YOYO Lip Gloss. I think its very important to see if you actually have a market before you go spending tons of dollars. What might be a great idea in your head might not be what customers want. I would suggest to put your idea down on paper and create a business plan. Its the best way to determine if you will be profitable. Good luck to all of you.

    Hi Sonam, I see that you want to become a Distributor for the LAKME brand, which can be a very lucrative venture. I think the first thing you should do is go onto their website. Usually somewhere off to the side or on the bottom of the page you'll find 'career' or 'employment opportunity'. There is where you should start. You will more than likely find contact information such as an email address and/or phone number along with the name of the person you'll need to contact directly. Ask them if they are venturing out to your area (sometimes they don't). If they are, then get more information on how you can become a Rep for their company in your area. Good luck!
