How to find a supplier for a cosmetics store
Household chemistry and cosmetics store is a profitable investment if it is opened in a place with high traffic.
However, it is more important to find a supplier with which you can work more than one year and on favorable terms.
Where can I find the suppliers of cosmetics:
Not an ethical, but effective way to find out where a competitor is taking the goods - pretend to be a meticulous buyer and ask the seller for quality certificates. By law, such certificates are available in every store and are provided on demand.
Often certificates of conformity are issued not by the manufacturer, but by the supplier. Remembering the name of the supplier, you can contact its managers and find out the terms of cooperation.

Separately, it is worth exploring special sites that help find a supplier. In such catalogs, several suppliers, including manufacturers, have been collected.
However, there are also disadvantages of this way of finding partners for business, there is no complete information on the catalog sites.
Catalogs are providing contacts to more than twenty suppliers:
A simple and common way to find suppliers is specialized exhibitions.
