Starting your own private-label skincare line is easier than ever when you partner with an OEM skincare company like Seoul Mamas. But what exactly is an OEM, and how does it relate to private-label skincare and cosmetics?

Seoul Mamas, a U.S.-based company with partners in Seoul, South Korea, is an OEM that produces private-label Korean skincare products for its customers.  

What Is OEM?

OEM stands for original equipment manufacturing. OEM companies produce products for another company, and then that company sells those products under their brand. This is a popular and cost-effective way to produce private-label skincare and cosmetic products for your brand.

Why Use an OEM?

OEMs can help with your business’ scalability. If you are trying to start up a private-label skincare or cosmetic line for your business, spa, or clinic, is it often not feasible to produce large amounts of the product on your own. Most people do not have the time, money, or resources to produce hundreds or thousands of units to sell under their brand name.

In this case, you hire an OEM to produce the product for you. They create the product exactly to your specifications, then sell them to you at wholesale prices. You then can then mark up the product prices and sell them under your own brand label.

What Is the Process?

Though the terminology sounds complicated, ordering from an OEM is actually fairly simple.

  1. The business and OEM work together to create the product specifications.
  2. The business places an order for the product through the OEM.
  3. The OEM produces the product to specification and sells wholesale to the business.
  4. The business marks up the product and sells them under its own private label.

Many OEMs can even help create labels and brand your products for you.

What to Look for in an OEM

It is important to use a reputable OEM when ordering products, especially skincare and cosmetics since they will be used directly on the body. An experienced OEM, like Seoul Mamas, will follow all safety and quality standards when it comes to producing your products. This will guarantee that you end up with a high-quality finished product that will benefit your brand and please your customers.
