The Realities of Cosmetic Importing: Rewards & Risks

The pursuit of beauty is timeless. Nothing proves this more than the growing value of the American cosmetics industry, a market estimated to be worth over $91 billion – and growing.

The demand for cleaner, sustainable, and cruelty-free products has driven direct-to-consumer brands to new heights and given importers a thriving e-commerce market entry.

Powerful Beauty Numbers

Average Industry Growth Rate
3.8% (YOY)
Average Cosmetic Spending by US Women
$3,750 annually
Purchase Value of Ethnic Beauty Products
$1.2 trillion
Anti-aging Cosmetic Market Value
$38.6 billion

For every standard of beauty, there are dozens of products and hundreds of opportunities for rising importers. However, for every profitable opportunity, there are also dangers to navigate.

Updated regulations give the FDA the right to order mandatory product recalls and block imports from entry for products that violate safety standards

Civil Money Penalties over $1 million per violation in unapproved products or in those reported to cause harm

The cosmetics industry is overrun with counterfeit products, even first time offenders can be imprisoned for 10 years and face a $2 million fine
