Our History

As early as the seventies, chemist and cosmetic developer Wilhelm Kühn recognised that cosmetic brands value their own unique formulas in small quantities – especially when it comes to developing new highly active products. In 1991, he founded Neo Cos Service GmbH, a service provider for the expert and exclusive active cosmetics segment, with his wife Petra Kühn.

Our philosophy: Stronger together for our customers

We are contract manufacturers but we do not have our own cosmetics brand. Since we founded Neo Cos, we have considered ourselves your service partner. We delight in helping cosmetic brands succeed with premium unparalleled active cosmetics.

With that in mind, it is important to us that all employees at Neo Cos share this philosophy. Our process and work flows are based on teamwork and streamlining. This allows us to react quickly across all levels.

Leading cosmetics firms still continue to face various roadblocks to market success. It is only through strategic brand management, clever niches, extremely high quality, and visible efficacy that a cosmetic product can hold its own.

Armed with the knowledge of this industry, we established ourselves as supportive service providers and partners for cosmetics brands. Because we’re stronger together.
