Case study 1: Natural Cosmetic Workshop on Ingredients and Formulation Challenges

Organic Monitor conducted a workshop that addressed the major challenges companies face when formulating natural cosmetics. The workshop began by looking at what constitutes a natural and organic product, highlighting the ingredients that are commonly found in such products.

The workshop leader then gave details of the synthetic chemicals that are typically absent in natural & organic cosmetics. An assessment was made of the natural alternatives, their functionality and performance. The workshop then gave a detailed review of natural & organic standards, comparing and contrasting the permissible ingredients of each.

The interactive workshop enabled delegates to put forward the major problems they face when formulating natural and organic cosmetics. Key pointers and guidance were given to overcome challenges involving formulations, ingredients and synthetic chemicals. The delegates left the workshop with clear guidelines on how to produce / re-formulate natural & organic cosmetics.

Case study 2: Competitive
Profiles of Importers in the UK

A producer of natural personal care products was looking to start exporting to the UK. It had no prior contacts or experience in the UK market and commissioned Organic Monitor to identify and profile prospective import partners.

The first step involved listing importers and distributors of natural personal care & related products from our internal databases. A shortlist of companies that met the client's criteria was drawn up. These companies were then contacted and their interest in the client's product range gauged. Companies that were interested in the natural personal care products and who were capable of distributing to the target sales channels were profiled.

The competitive profiles were given to the client along with recommendations on partner suitability and target sales channels. As a result of the study, the client has successfully entered a distribution arrangement with a leading importer and its natural personal care products are slowly making inroads in British retailers.
