Top 8 Private Label Manufacturers in the Beauty Industry

for Skin, Bath, Hair, and Cosmetic Products

Private label manufacturers in the beauty industry make all of your favorite skin, hair, bath and cosmetic products. They’re also the secret to unlocking a high-margin e-commerce business.

Here’s 8 of the best manufacturers out there, to help get you started.


How to Start Private Label Manufacturing in the Beauty Industry

First— where’s the alpha? Anyone with the gumption and funds can kick off a product in skincare and cosmetics, but to stand out you need:

  • Audience
  • Niche
  • Connections
  • Speed to trend

Speed to trend is the biggest advantage.  Matcha tea, collagen, CBD, charcoal, mushrooms, adaptogens… If you’re early in the wave of incorporating something new into your products, and savvy with search, paid media, or Tik Tok you can make a super successful lean business.

80%+ of the products you see online or in department stores are made by the same 10 or so factories that private label. Basically, factories are taking popular bases of things like makeup, soaps, or shampoos and working with clients to make it just a little bit custom.

This used to mean that you’d simply change an essential oil blend and try new packaging. However, today it can mean incorporating all kinds of experimental new products and fancy custom formulations. 

The supplements world functions the same way…
