The beauty, skin care, and cosmetics industries are intertwined with consumers’ daily lives. Consumers from all walks of life trust brands to deliver high quality products that deliver on expectations.

Below the surface, however, there are problems with these industries that brands should know about—especially beauty brands considering a new line of skin care products.

What Are the Biggest Issues in the Beauty Industry Today?

Before securing a skin care business name, designing a logo, investing in products, and joining a competitive marketplace, it’s vital that brands understand major issues in the industry and find a private label manufacturer that tackles those problems head on.

1. Product Quality Crisis

Many cosmetics and skin care manufacturers do not have adequate quality control and testing processes in place, which can lead to compromised product quality, such as mold, packaging issues, or formula separation.

Reputable manufacturing companies and suppliers conform to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs), have established quality assurance measures and testing procedures, have plans of action if issues arise, and are open to questions from brands about the manufacturing process.

2. Scarcity of Expertise

Skin care, cosmetics, and other beauty products must be properly formulated by seasoned professionals. Unfortunately, there is a scarcity of experts in the beauty industry, leaving some manufacturers to operate without such guidance.

Manufacturers and suppliers should have experienced professionals on their research and development teams as well as their testing, quality assurance, and production teams in order to ensure that products are created and processed in optimal conditions.

3. Lack of Transparency

Beauty brands deserve full transparency when it comes to manufacturers’ safety procedures, testing processes, and quality control. Many laboratories and suppliers, however, are not open and honest about their ingredients, sourcing practices, manufacturing process, or brand values—leaving skin care and beauty brands (and consumers) in the dark.

Transparency is key in the skin care and cosmetics industry. Private label skin care manufacturers must establish open lines of communication with clients and be forthcoming about brand values, business processes, and product development.

4. Lack of Control

Private label skin care is an attractive option for many skin care and cosmetics brands, yet these companies should still have control over the formulation and product development process. All decisions must be in the hands of these brands so that they can be proud of the products they offer to consumers.

An unfortunate reality of many manufacturers is a total lack of control—these companies are not open to modifications, changes, or updates, making it difficult for beauty brands to sell products that fit their business values.

Always look for private label skin care manufacturers that offer control over the process.

5. Greenwashing

Greenwashing in the beauty industry misleads consumers. Regrettably, the practice of greenwashing is still common in skin care and cosmetics. For example, manufacturers will label a product as “natural” or “green” even though they did not use organic, sustainably-sourced ingredients or eco-friendly processes.

Work with manufacturers that are honest about the ingredients in their products, accurately represent themselves on labels, and avoid exaggerating in their marketing language.

6. Not-So-Clean Ingredients

The continued push for “clean” skin care and cosmetics products has led to some companies, manufacturers, and suppliers to either falsify or greenwash their ingredients list or pivot to a natural preservative system without adequate testing. While the right natural preservatives can be extremely effective for a variety of products, a new formula requires extra research, development, and testing.

Manufacturers offering “clean” beauty products must ensure their products maintain strict quality standards, even while experimenting with new, cleaner formulations.
