I have been looking at yournamepro.com they have events in NY and I missed the last one. You can check the schedule to see if they will be in your area. I'm not sure what you mean by natural makeup but I know they have a mineral makeup in their selection.

Thank you, Ill check it out. I mean not completely Vegan or Organic so in other words a natural brand that has more natural ingredients than anything else.

There are many manufacturers that do many things. Could you please clarify.

Do you want to create custom formulas, or do you want to use existing formulas?

Start here;

http://www.icmad.org/

This is going to be a long hard slog. Steps:

a. identify ingrediant list, develop formulas...will cost 20,000 or more to get approvals
b. source materials, distributors
c. source packaging
d. hire marketing and product design specialists
e. enter production
f. locate distribution channels
g. house inventory

Expect to invest about $100,000 or so to get off the ground. You need partner investors. You need someone to get you through the regulatory red tape. You have to pitch your line to distributors and see if they will offer you shelf space. You will need to advertise your product and promote it.

Sure you want to do this?
