How to buy wholesale cosmetics

The global cosmetics market is set to register an annual growth rate of 4.3% to reach $429.8 billion by 2022. So, if you are considering to start an online store, you have picked a good niche.

Consider these question before you source cosmetics for your store:

  • Which target group are you going to sell to? The spending habit on cosmetics for people of different age group and skin tone are going to be different.
  • Women have to account for dry skin during winter and oily skin during the summer. You may want to consider sourcing different type of cosmetics depending on the seasons need.
  • It's easier to sell more cosmetics when you can make a bundle that caters for a specific skin condition. For example, a cosmetic kit for concealing acnes or a kit for glowing skin during the summer.



Where to buy wholesale cosmetics

Safe to say there are plenty of ways to can source wholesale cosmetics. If you are a beginner, you have these options to start with:


— The easiest way to get started. Just type "buy wholesale cosmetics" and you'll find thousands of results.

While this method is free, it leaves you to the wolves. You have to figure out who the real wholesalers are and try to avoid scams. It’s time-consuming and frustrating.

Online Marketplaces

— There are online marketplaces like eBay, Alibaba or Aliexpress where you can buy wholesale cosmetics from. They are massive, so you won't have trouble finding a variety of cosmetics to sell.

However, there is a steep learning curve to these platforms and a massive communication barrier. Many of the suppliers are from Asia, so they don’t speak the best English.

Supplier directories

— Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality suppliers or getting scammed.

While there is a small fee ($67/year for SaleHoo), it's the best method for beginners. We even give you our market research tool, which shows you how often items sell and helps you find new products to add to your store!



Finding trusted suppliers

Finding trusted suppliers that won’t scam you can be tricky, but we’ve dealt with so many that we’ve boiled it down to a few key steps:

Contact the supplier and verify their address

— Legit wholesale suppliers will list their contact information and address on their site, so make sure they are real contacts who you can talk to.

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record

— Find out how many years they have been in operation. If possible, speak with some of their existing clients to find out if they are reliable.

Purchase and inspect their products

— Never use a supplier without receiving a sample product first. Check the packaging, product quality, and care of handling. Drive out to the manufacturing site if possible.

Test their customer support

— Your supplier is your partner; Ask them questions early and often to see how quickly they respond. If they aren’t fast or don’t give high-quality answers, you may need to find someone else.
