Hi Mark, I am looking to start up my business by launching a cosmetics line. How much the lipstick?
Actually customizing cosmetics well flexible, and there can be many prices.
- Who’s your ideal customer? High-end market, mid-range market or low-end market?
- Do you plan to sell the goods in which country market?
What we do is based on your information provide you a competitive price while guaranteeing the quality.
The cosmetics price can be roughly divided 6 part.
Price= Cosmetic material + Packaging (tubes/container) + Packing material + Labor cost + Profit
1. Cosmetics material
The makeup used for eyes, lips, and face.
• Normally our quote based on standard quality.
• Material cost can be controlled when making samples, as engineers can use tens of dollars or hundreds of dollars raw materials.
Cosmetics regulations are a little bit different in some countries. Such as some ingredients can be used in Europe, but forbidden use in the USA. So sometimes we need to use other same effect or more expensive ingredients instead.
How to choose makeup material quality（formula)?
Ⅰ. We recommend existing mature formulas
• the makeup formula can be updated based on your feedback.
Ⅱ. Customer provided quality sample
• normally our engineers can copy famous brand goods formula if you can provide sample
Ⅲ. Customized formula according to the requirements
