CORONA, Calif., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people do not really think about the skincare manufacturing or haircare manufacturing lab that's behind the brands they swear by. If you're familiar with Ms. Dixie Medford, creator of the world-famous Regina-C Gold cosmetics line, then you may have heard about Cosmedx Science, a world-class RPD lab that's the unknown place of origin for many of the world's finest cosmetic brands.
This unique skincare manufacturing facility is based in Corona, California, and has recently been honored with the prestigious "SBA International Exporter of the Year" award for 2017. As a full-scale production lab that offers experienced onsite chemists and technicians – with state-of-the-art equipment that includes nine permanent filling lines and full production capability – it's no wonder why skincare gurus like Medford use Cosmedx Science for their formula testing and creation, manufacturing, labeling and bulk fulfillment needs.
Cosmedx Science differs from many other labs of its type in the sense that they specialize in not only the creation of formulas (they have 2,000 signature formulas they've already created in-house), but in revamping or improving so-called "problem formulas" or underdeveloped formulas to resolve constituency and formulization issues, and help bring them to market.
"Clients often come to us with their "problem formulas" or formulas that need further development and testing," explained Chris Amato President of Cosmedx Science. "Our experienced team helps solve the problem for the client while we carefully work to reduce cost and improve formula quality."
At the time when Amato acquired Cosmedx, in addition to the domestic market, the company was also exporting products throughout Asia. He made a commitment to increase the export business by networking at various international trade shows in conjunction with the California Trade Alliance and sought assistance from the Center for International Trade Development. His participation in the U.S. Commercial Service Gold Key program helped to match Cosmedx with agents, distributors and strategic partners around the globe. This has led to Amato meeting with over 20 foreign representatives and establishing relationships with buyers and distributors throughout the European Union, Asia, Russia, South America, Central America, and the Middle East. With this focus and effort, Amato expects exporting sales to triple this year. He now attends the largest beauty and personal care trade shows in New York, Las Vegas, Hong Kong and Italy and has added Dubai and Mexico City to his 2017 calendar.
The growth in exporting has allowed Cosmedx to hire additional staff. With the increase in raw materials purchased from local vendors, the increased business with local trucking companies and the need to utilize temporary staffing agencies for production, Amato is creating jobs and generating additional economic benefits to the community.
Amato will be recognized and receive his award as the 2017 Exporter of the Year at the local Small Business Week Awards program which will be held Friday, June 9, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. until approximately 2:00 p.m. at the Disneyland Hotel Grand Ballroom. The event is being hosted by the Orange County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. For more information on the event or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 714.953.4289.
