What is a private label cosmetics company?

Une marque blanche cosmétique représente un fabricant cosmétique (ou « private label » en anglais). Elle crée des produits cosmétiques sur mesure pour une marque de beauté connue.

Elle les conçoit et les fabrique selon les exigences de l’entreprise cliente pour lui permettre de les labelliser au nom propre de cette même entreprise.

Le nom du fournisseur ou fabricant cosmétique n’apparaît pas sur les étiquettes ni les produits cosmétiques finis une fois mis sur le marché. D’où le terme de marque blanche cosmétique.

Ainsi, la cosmétique en marque blanche obtenue par l’entreprise cliente est perçue par les consommateurs comme une gamme de soins cosmétiques née de sa propre fabrication.
