Beyond this, we maintain close contact with the trade press and ensure that it is always informed about the latest developments in our company.

Another important part of our work is our contact and interaction with beauty bloggers who regularly test and evaluate our products.

    At cosnova, we like to take responsibility and are dedicated to getting involved with good causes, whether by providing financial support or by offering our time. In the area of Corporate Responsibility, we develop strategies and concepts for the sustainable economic, ecological and social alignment of cosnova.

    Legal

    Our main tasks consist of monitoring and implementing any legal developments and changes in legislation that may affect our sales countries. This includes the European cosmetics directive and the requirements of the US-American health authority FDA as well as working with national and international cosmetovigilance authorities. As a result, we are in close contact with the related departments (e.g., Marketing, Communication, Quality Assurance) to ensure that all relevant areas have access to the information and can take it into consideration. Regulatory issues lead to a number of legal topics, which are also handled by us. These include, for example, the preparation and processing of contracts. We also register up to 1,000 new products in the individual distribution countries each year and deal with all related customs and export matters.

One of the special features of our Marketing department is that Product Management directly handles product purchasing as well as price negotiations for the initial production.

Personnel Development

In addition to their monthly salary, our employees benefit from the success of our company by means of goals that can be influenced by the individual directly. cosnova takes its responsibility and duty of care towards its employees very seriously and therefore finances a comprehensive provision scheme for its employees. For example, we support the statu-
tory provisions with an attractive corporate pension plan. And we are also happy to take out various insurance polices to protect you in the here and now.

New challenges and a constantly changing environment require continuous personnel development with the help of in-house trainings, coachings or individual external measures. This way, it’s not just our products that always have their finger on the pulse of the times - our employees do, too!
