Who are the Main Manufacturers of Cosmetics?

Consumers are very careful when it comes to cosmetic products to make sure that they are of a standard quality. One of the reasons why consumers are very demanding when it comes to the quality of cosmetic products is because there might be a negative impact on their skin by using lower quality products. The main manufacturers of cosmetic products are located in China (Mainland), Nepal, and Taiwan. On the other hand these products are in the highest demand in parts of Northern America, Western Europe, and China. Nowadays, customers are becoming ever more concerned with what their cosmetic products are made of. Manufacturers normally use a combination of both organic and inorganic compounds for the production of cosmetic products. Manufacturers are also expanding their production techniques by making cosmetic products organic, vegan, and completely natural.
