Why Universal Brands

Skin care and cosmetic manufacturers with buying industry experience

At Universal Brands, we don’t start with our products – we start with your briefing and go from there.

Alister, our founder, was originally a buyer and worked for one of the major retailers in Australia for more than 20 years. After leaving the buying space he started Universal Brands with the intention of giving buyers exactly what they needed – skin care and cosmetic manufacturers with the experience to find the right products at the right price.

We are continually creating our own range of designs and products that are on trend in this ever-changing world. However we understand that you may want something different to suit your target market, such as a house-branded range of natural kids’ cosmetics or bath products.

Therefore, we believe our point of difference to other suppliers is that we are truly flexible and can work with you to produce bath gift sets, cosmetics and cosmetics bags, facial, baby, skin and car cleaning wipes and a range of homewares that are suited to your demands and within budget.

We have years of experience working with factories in China and a great team on the ground in our Shenzhen office to ensure quality control and negotiate the best prices for you.

Our product development team works with a variety of designers to ensure we are keeping up with trends around the world. Our sales team is based in Victoria, Australia but enjoys travelling and we are happy to come to you!

We have been operating out of China for more than two decades and have sound knowledge when dealing with mass production, specialising in providing FMCG FOB out of China. Over the years our clients have included Walmart (Canada), Coles (Australia), Galeries Lafayette and London Drug to name a few.

We are extremely adaptable and love travelling, so if you are interested in meeting with us please contact our team to arrange a catch-up.

Coles Supermarkets have been working with Universal Brands for eight years. This has allowed us to build a strong working…
