Herrco Cosmetics specialise in product formulation and development of natural beauty products, supporting creative formulating with superb manufacturing facilities.
Steadily accumulating industry prominence since 1988, over recent years Herrco Cosmetics has increasingly become the one to watch in market-leading innovation in creating high performance products which capture the best of natural, botanical and organic personal care.
The bespoke cosmetics development manufacturer is responsible for creating some of the most well-known natural cosmetic products in the UK, and is the formulation brains behind many award-winning ranges.
Producing a spectrum of cosmetics covering skin and hair care, bath and body, fragrance, Aromatherapy and Ayurveda-inspired ranges, Herrco is a thriving family-owned business whose company philosophy is firmly rooted in creating natural and free-from formulations that can compete with, and even outperform, products from the non-natural sector.
With clients from all over the world, both existing and start-up, Herrco’s highly skilled New Product Development team help in all areas, from sourcing packaging and specialist active ingredients to coordinating product launches from concept to completion. In recognition of flourishing green credentials within the natural beauty sector, the NPD team can work to harmonise ethical credentials with your brand philosophy, such as FAIRTRADE, Phytotrade Africa and Green Palm Sustainability certification.
Many of the raw materials that Herrco Cosmetics use are sourced exclusively through organic accredited channels, and highly successful Ecocert inspections several years running have ensured that Herrco is able to manufacture fully-certified product ranges for the organic cosmetics market.
In addition to creative development, the fully-equipped laboratory assures rigorous quality control, conducting microbiology, stability, and safety assessments during the formulation process as standard, and will ensure product efficacy is legally substantiated where claims such as ‘anti-stretchmark’, ‘dermatologist tested’ or ‘Sun protection Factor (SPF)’ are a central tenet to the product’s performance and marketing.
Herrco’s attention to detail and valued portfolio has seem them become the proud developers behind several finalists and winners at prestigious industry award ceremonies, such as this year’s CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women) awards, the Green Beauty Bible Awards, and Natural Health Awards. A growing customer base coupled with a strong export sector means the Company Directors are committed to investing in the future of the company; expanding the company by 60% in 2013 in line with exciting future growth plans and increasing industry recognition.
Flexible productions runs mean a capacity to cater for a wide range of clients; Herrco Cosmetics currently manufactures bespoke formulations for brands, boutiques, exquisite spas and high volume multi-nationals, such as supermarkets and national health-shop chains.
Herrco’s skilled and varied portfolio means that they are able to demonstrate a great deal of creativity and clever formulating in working to client-specific briefs. Being able to offer the full scope of specialist product development is now an integral part of Herrco’s company ethos. Whatever your cosmetic development and production needs, Herrco Cosmetics can help you realise it.
