Clear indications for growth: The services of the cosmetics developer Cosmacon are in high demand – in Germany and internationally. Now, the Schenefeld-based company has moved into larger business rooms to give the team members more space to develop their skills to the full.
Dynamics instead of stagnation. While many cosmetics companies got short of breath during the pandemic year 2020, Cosmacon has been able to achieve great growth. Cosmacon GmbH accompanies cosmetics companies and firms striving to establish an own cosmetics brand in each step on the way to a successful product: from product development, formulation of the cosmetic product to market introduction.
With real success! The online trade in cosmetics is booming and Cosmacon has adapted its services and performances to meet the requirements of the online sellers in Germany and worldwide. Thereby, Cosmacon not only survived the corona crisis but has created increase.
The essential resource: contented colleagues
Colleagues with excellent expertise in cosmetics are the basis to accomplish the extensive quota of orders. Therefore, Cosmacon doubled the number of staff members during the last eighteen months and has moved into the new premises in the city of Schenefeld with its team. The office and laboratory area of 280 square meters gives more space to the 10 staff members and features new, modern equipment. The desk workplaces are fitted with two monitors for each colleague and ergonomic desks and seats. Air-conditioning systems and air filters provide a beneficial and sure working atmosphere in the light, large rooms. The modern IT system and the large-scale equipment of the laboratory complete the generous ambience.
“We wanted to involve our staff members and asked them in the planning phase what they wish and what they consider to be important in the equipment”, Rainer Kröpke, managing director of Cosmacon, explains. „It is essential that the team members feel well; that is the basis of good work.” The location of the business premises in the city of Schenefeld is an advantage for the team. „The journey to remote industrial estates often is unattractive for colleagues and business partners”, Kröpke says. „The city of Schenefeld with its gastronomy, shopping facilities and good traffic linkages offers opportunities to connect professional and private matters.”
Cosmacon’s recipe for success
The new business premises offer more space for the team and the opportunity to work together in an efficient network. That means that orders can be completed rapidly, meeting high quality standards. An essential component in Cosmacon’s recipe for success. Normally, the period from the idea to the market launch of a cosmetic product takes up to a half year. Cosmacon is able to offer the customers an express service: in less than three months to the finished product.
„Especially our customers who mainly sell online appreciate this service. They do not want to wait so long for the product, and they want to reorder at short notice to get not of-of-stock”, Kröpke tells.
Expertise – used broadly
Quick product development and quality „Made in Germany“ – that is what customers worldwide appreciate. Numerous partners in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia rely on the expertise and the talent of Cosmacon in development, conceptualizing and organization in cosmetics. To respond especially to the needs of international customers Cosmacon’s head Rainer Kröpke has outsourced Innosicios GmbH, whose specialists develop and market superior cosmetic products for customers out of Europe.
Another Cosmacon spin-off company is Cosactive GmbH. Cosactive has specialized in manufacturing, development, and trade of high-quality raw materials for cosmetic and pharmaceutic products. A logical step for Rainer Kröpke: „Cosmacon and our customers require superior raw materials, available as promptly as possible in sufficient quantities. The experts of Cosactive are ready to perform that.”
Cosmacon GmbH, based in Schenefeld near Hamburg, was founded by Rainer Kröpke in 2013. The service company gives advice and develops cosmetic products, also natural cosmetics, for companies in the field of personal care and cosmetics. The customers include brand and raw material producers, cosmetic institutes and distributors in Germany as well as international groups.
