Cosmetic Solutions

was acquired by Lee Equity Partners

Cosmetic Solutions is a turnkey private label skincare company and a leader in the custom formulation of scientifically proven and naturally effective personal care products including skin, body, hair, OTC, and professional use products. The Company develops cost-effective, high-quality, innovative products for the global beauty industry through its three-tiered service offering that includes private label, custom formulation, and contract manufacturing. 

Cosmetic Solutions is a second-generation family-owned business with 2,000+ accounts, ranging from entrepreneurs and professional channel physicians to national retailers, fast-growing “indie brands” and established global brands. In addition to its 1,300+ proprietary stock formulations, the Company produces numerous completely custom formulations and currently has five of its own DTC brands. The Company’s extensive R&D capabilities create an ideal partnership for emerging brands looking to launch their first products. 

Having consistently received significant inbound interest, Cosmetic Solutions retained The Sage Group to explore strategic alternatives. The Company received an overwhelming level of interest with Sage managing a competitive process that ultimately resulted in a strategic partnership with Lee Equity Partners.

We would never in our wildest dreams have thought that we would have ended up with the outcome that we had. It never would have been possible without Sage. Sage knows the industry, the business, the players, and the buyers. Sage had an immediate connection with our team. They were partners throughout the process and made it very collaborative.
