"Products Made in The USA – How American suppliers are shinning and innovating to be at the forefront of international competitiveness?"

For the last two decades at least the US cosmetic industry has more and more relied upon overseas sourcing, notably from Asia. The local industry has symmetrically shrunk, as many packaging and formula suppliers invested in operations in low cost countries rather than in the USA, or even exited the industry.

An opposite trend is strongly developing nowadays. Economic and social development in once developing economies has eroded the cost benefit to source overseas and skyrocket local demand has claimed its share of the available capacity. Conversely, the USA are witnessing a strong will for re-localizing jobs and supply, which is likely to affect all industries. How is the cosmetic industry preparing for that switch? Indeed this industry is a complex one, involving a wide variety of materials, technologies, knowhows…

Are all the required capacities and competencies readily available? What are local and global players planning in terms of capacity and expertise?
