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 2023. So, if you are considering to start an online store, you have picked a good niche.

Consider these questions 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 groups and skin tones are 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 season.
  • It's easier to sell more cosmetics when you can make a bundle that caters to specific skin condition. For example, a cosmetic kit for concealing acne or a kit for glowing skin during the summer.

Where to buy wholesale cosmetics

A surefire way source wholesale cosmetics is from wholesalers. If you are a beginner, you can get started easily with:


Just type "buy wholesale cosmetics near me" and you will instantly get thousands of potential wholesale cosmetic suppliers near you.

While this method is free, the wholesale suppliers from Google are not always legitimate. You have to do the due diligence and weed out real wholesalers from the crowd. This can take a significant amount of your time.

Online Forums

You can post on forums such as Wholesale forum and Warrior forum to get recommendations on suppliers. Joining and interacting on these forums will allow you to build potential business relationships, get feedback from other sellers and possibly connect with wholesalers directly.

However, be warned that these lists and suggestions won’t be vetted, and that recommendations can come from self interest.

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

SaleHoo has vetted thousands of suppliers. Here are some of the steps we use to weed out the bad ones:

Contact the supplier and verify their address

If a supplier doesn’t display their phone number and address, keep looking. If they do, call them and make sure a real person answers.

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record

A great supplier will have been in business a long time (at least 10 years). Check their time in operation. Additionally, call up one of their customers to get a personal testimonial.

Purchase and inspect their products

Product samples reveal a supplier’s product quality and packaging. Use their products as rough as you can to see how it holds up.

Test their customer support

Your supplier is your partner; Call your supplier’s customer support to make sure they answer quickly and thoroughly. If not, keep looking (your business relies on your supplier, after all.

Since 2005 SaleHoo has helped over 137,000 customers successfully start online businesses on eBay, Amazon and their own online stores.
