The ins and outs of outsourcing

Using Contract Cosmetic & Pharmaceutical Manufacturing to benefit your business

Cosmetic pharmaceutical manufacturing is a complex and highly regulated industry. Success typically requires significant investment in resources, technology and, of course, expertise. If one (or more) of these elements are in short supply, outsourcing can be a highly effective solution.
From large businesses looking to expand their existing production lines to small start-up companies wanting to trial new products, partnering with a reputable contract cosmetic pharmaceutical manufacturer can bring a wide range of benefits instead of doing it in-house. We explore why:

Access to Expertise

Cosmetic pharmaceutical manufacturing requires highly specialised expertise and knowledge in areas such as formulation development, production, quality control, as well as robust regulatory compliance. Outsourcing to a contract manufacturer gives you access to a team of experts with a wealth of experience at each of these critical stages. This can help you save time, reduce costs and minimise risks associated with navigating complex regulatory requirements and quality control standards.


Outsourcing to a contract manufacturer allows your company to scale up or down production according to market demands. This can be particularly beneficial if you are just starting or have seasonal demand for your products, such as sunscreen for example. Contract manufacturers have the resources and infrastructure to handle both small and large-scale production, allowing your company to focus on its core business activities.

Reduced Costs

Cosmetic pharmaceutical manufacturing requires significant capital investment in equipment, facilities and personnel. Outsourcing to a contract manufacturer can help you reduce these costs, as the manufacturer will have already made these investments. Earlier in 2023, Nowchem Pharma & Skincare made a multi-million-dollar investment in upgrading its manufacturing infrastructure to ensure larger capabilities and faster production times through the installation of a new TGA plant room. Contract manufacturers also benefit from economies of scale, often allowing them to produce your products at considerably lower cost than in-house manufacturing.

Faster Time to Market

Outsourcing to a contract manufacturer can help you get your products to market faster. Contract manufacturers are geared for efficiencies, and have the expertise, resources and infrastructure to move products quickly through the development and manufacturing processes. This helps you meet tight timelines and reach your customers with a maximum of speed – and minimum of compromise. It’s all about delivering quality products, quickly.

Focus on Core Business Activities

As already mentioned, outsourcing to a contract manufacturer allows your company to focus on what it does best. Under the combined pressure of compressed timelines and stretched internal resources, it frees up your team to devote more energy towards core business activities such as product development, marketing and sales. This can help you save time, money and, ultimately, improve overall business performance.

If you’re looking to enter a new market or expand your product lines, outsourcing to a contract cosmetic pharmaceutical manufacturer like Nowchem Pharma & Skincare offers a wide range of benefits.
