Raw Material Suppliers / Distributors

Within the Cosmetic Industry, the raw material supply and distribution businesses have changed significantly over the last few years. The largest suppliers of raw materials work directly with the top 15-20 Cosmetic manufacturers, the other cosmetic producers are served by distributors.


The result is that an intimate customer-orientation has developed between the top manufacturers and the large suppliers. The large raw material suppliers can concentrate on the development of active ingredients for their main customers.

The distributors have become important as they have the relationship with small and medium-sized cosmetic producers. These companies need a fast and flexible delivery service and increasingly need their suppliers to provide knowledge and support in the formulation of raw materials and active ingredients.

As a raw material supplier and / or distributor this targeted expertise and technical marketing could become the added value you need for your business.
To acquire this know-how requires time and creativity and maybe even hiring new people. To quickly turn new trends into market-ready products necessitates vision and an excellent knowledge of your own raw materials.
