Founded in 1991 by Mervyn Becker, Cosmetic Solutions has been making private label skin care ever since. In 2017, just after the company celebrated its 25th anniversary, Cosmetics Solutions “added over 25,000 square feet to its FDA-registered manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, FL, increasing square footage to 65,000,” according to a press release issued at the time.
Over the course of 2017 and on into 2018, the company has also been working to expand its service offerings, particularly in brand development and marketing. And current “strategies to strengthen the company’s innovation pipeline include a renewed focus on developing high-efficacy skincare and an enhanced product portfolio in line with market demand,” according to that 2017 press release.
Cosmetic Solutions new Ulti-Bright Hyaluronic Lightener is certainly part of that initiative. “This hydrating lightener is perfect for individuals concerned with dark spots, skin discoloration, uneven skin tone and skin dehydration,” explains a release about the new product launch.
The key ingredients in the company’s new serum are alpha linolenic acid and a hyaluronic acid with a low molecular weight. According to the Cosmetic Solutions press release, the “unique [alpha linolenic] acid works to help normalize tyrosinase activity in order to address the over-production of melanin. In addition, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is significantly smaller in size than standard HA, which allows it penetrate the skin to a much deeper level.”
Full-service and turn-key private label options appeal to brands looking for a streamlined way to get product to market. While Cosmetic Solutions offers custom formulation services too, the company’s private label product portfolio is extensive, including skincare like cleansers, toners, exfoliators, masks, moisturizers, and sun care. They also make treatment products, body care, hair care, and men’s grooming products.
The company provides an array of support services, besides: “research and development, creative branding and graphic design, training and education, packaging sourcing and decoration, labeling and label printing, batch manufacturing, packing and kitting, and logistics,” according to press materials. “Minimum order quantities of 48 units to full-scale production of 100,000 pieces or more are available to suit various business needs.”
