Cosmetic Product Development

The cosmetic product development services provided by Russell Scientific Consultants help clients through every stage of the product development cycle.

We review the brief for your proposed cosmetic product and identify possible issues and solutions. Our consulting services are driven by industry experts who have a proven track record in bringing cosmetic products to the market.

All our clients in Cork, Limerick, Galway and across Ireland have access to our team with regular meetings to determine timelines, raw materials, order volumes and all other relevant details for each project.

The entire cosmetic product development cycle will depend on the complexity of the product formulation and can take around five to six months to complete.

Steps Involved In Cosmetic Product Development s

The marketing brief: The more detailed your marketing brief is the easier it will be to use it when developing a new cosmetic product. Other departments, such as research and development, will then be able to use it to create product prototypes.


Product formulation: The cosmetic product formulation begins where allergens, chemical reactions, concentrations or costs are evaluated and product safety is ensured.


Raw materials and package sourcing: Several suppliers are sent a list of requirements where costs, quality and function are compared before analysis is carried out in order to make a final decision.


Packaging artwork design: In accordance with marketing brief requirements, the outer packaging of your cosmetic product should conform to specific outlined colours and text.


Quality and compliance: In order for your cosmetic product to be launched, it needs to be safe to use and comply with regulations. We help clients gather all the documents and information they need about their product in order to fulfill this criteria.


Final validation: The product is reviewed to ensure it conforms with the original marketing brief before production can commence. Our industry experts will then help clients commercialise their cosmetic product in their required markets
