Who we are

Our company divisions

  •  

    Communication

    The Communication department is divided into three areas of activity: Brand Communication, Public Relations and Social Communication.

    In Brand Communication, we are responsible for the communicative brand management and for increasing global brand awareness. The development of campaigns including the media strategy as well as co-operations and other sales promotion measures form part of our daily work. The design of the homepages for our brands also falls into our area of responsibility.

    In Public Relations, the tasks include the international development and management of all PR measures for our two brands and their respective products in close collaboration with our partners in over 50 countries. Beyond this, we maintain close contact with the trade press and ensure that it is always informed about the latest developments in our company.  

    Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest or Instagram: our Social Communication Team handles the strategic focus of our brands, the daily implementation of marketing measures in each of the channels and the subsequent dialog with our customers. Another important part of our work is our contact and interaction with beauty bloggers who regularly test and evaluate our products.

  •  

    Company Projects & Corporate Identity

    All of us have great organizational skills, work across all departments and handle various projects: for example, we are responsible for Corporate Identity. In addition, we work on interdepartmental projects like developing advertising spots for the cosnova brands, co-operations and the development of retail concepts as well as for trade fair presence. Event management is also an important part of our work. We organize the annual International Sales Conference, the roadshows and our internal corporate events.

  •  

    Corporate Responsibility

    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. In doing so, our internal efforts are focused on the interests and concerns of our employees. In addition to this, we also commit to social and ecological projects with external partners. Our employees help us decide which initiatives we should support together.

  •  

    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.

  •  

    People & Organization

    Our employees are our success factor number 1. And that’s why they are the main focus of everything we do. To us, personnel management isn’t just about finding and employing new colleagues. We also aim to support them in a targeted manner based on their skills and interests. With our individual qualifications, creativity and dedication, each and every one of us contributes to the unique culture of cosnova.

  •  

    Finance & Controlling

    In Operations &Services we deal with numbers, data and facts. We are the first contact in the company when it comes to questions regarding product and customer profitability, budgets, key figures and ratios. Furthermore, we consider ourselves as business partners and support our colleagues in Sales, Marketing, Logistics and other departments with business analyses. In addition, we help our General Management in steering the company. Every Euro being processed in the company is monitored by our team and kept in our books. On top, our task is to manage the cash flow and all other financial aspects of the entire cosnova Beauty Group.

  •  

    Innovation & Research

    In the Research & Innovation team, we are always on the lookout for the newest and hottest raw materials and technologies for trends and cosmetics. Always keeping their finger on the pulse of the times, our trend scouts travel the fashion capitals of the world in search of the latest trends – from fashion to lifestyle, from the streets straight onto the catwalks, local or global. Our creative input serves to provide Product Development with a basis to develop new and innovative collections. Perfectly tailored cosmetics for young, trend-conscious consumers are created in our in-house laboratory – partially in collaboration with our strategic partners.

  •  

    IT

    Our aim is to always stay up-to-date or even a step ahead so that everyone in the company can work with the most modern technology available. This includes a range of tasks from detailed process depictions and optimizations in SAP to specialized company applications to database matters as well as equipping and updating our network structure. We also offer support with any technology-related issues.

  •  

    Marketing / Product Management

    Our Marketing teams are responsible for the development of every single essence and CATRICE product. Approximately 1,000 new and trendy products are developed each year. Starting with market analysis to the initial drafts to placement of the product in stores, Marketing handles each step in the creation of every single product. The range of tasks is therefore extremely multi-facetted, creative and at the same time analytical. A briefing provides a clear idea of the product character and design. 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. External suppliers are selected by our colleagues during the development process and then carry out the final product production. Furthermore, close and regular contact is maintained with neighboring departments such as Trade Marketing, Communication and Sales.

  •  

    Packaging Development

    Our team supports the product development process. In close collaboration with our suppliers and the Marketing and Innovation departments, we develop technically complex tools as well as packaging ranging from mascara and lipstick containers to entire nail polish and perfume units to innovative airless packaging. We are on-site for packaging supplies production as well as for the first filling or bottling.  

  •  

    Product Optimization

    We are responsible for the further development of selected products that are already on the market and improve them regarding, for example, ingredients, packaging and design. In doing so, we maintain close contact with our Marketing colleagues and our external suppliers.

  •  

    Project Management & Transformation Office

    The Project Management Office (PMO) stands for professional project management and process design. This creates the basis for a creative and dynamic company. In addition effective portfolio management creates transparency – enabling us to support the General Management in their decision making process and in the prioritization of company resources. We manage projects ranging from product launches to corporate development plans and also to IT projects.

  •  

    Purchase / Supplier Management

    In the Purchase department, we are responsible for the operational aspects of purchasing and for ensuring delivery capability. It is always our aim to have the correct products in the correct quantity at the correct time and at the correct price in the correct place. In doing so, we maintain close contact with our suppliers. The production facilities of 90% of our suppliers are based in Europe.

  •  

    Quality Assurance

    Our department safeguards the high quality of our products. We actively monitor the ingredients lists and packaging. We also check each delivery of our goods regarding fragrance, color, taste, etc. Our in-house laboratory, which amongst other things is used for stability and compatibility testing, ensures the high quality of our products whenever external manufacturers produce them. Furthermore, we are the point of contact for our clients as well as the final consumers regarding complaints and maintain close contact with our suppliers in the event of any quality issues.

  •  

    Sales

    The Key Account teams are responsible for expanding our market position and for the global distribution of our entire brand portfolio. Our sales channels are drugstores, perfumeries, food retailers, department stores as well as fashion retailers. In our trusting collaboration with the retailers and our international distributors, we discuss our strategic marketing concepts and the process optimization in order to drive sales. Our brands are now already available in more than 70 countries and are managed from our head office in Sulzbach.
    Our Internal Sales team is the contact for our clients and distributors regarding any questions about offers, the opening of new branches, joint advertising in all media channels, listing data and much more. cosnova Beauty does not have its own sales force out on the field, but works with external agencies to handle third-party business instead.

  •  

    Supply Chain Management

    The Supply Chain Division ensures that our customers worldwide are supplied with our products by their desired delivery date. The division is divided into four departments:

    Customer Supply Chain

    We are responsible to manage non-commercial activities with our customers by working closely together with our Sales and Supply Chain functions. Based on Efficient Consumer Response (ECR) our main target is the alignment of internal processes with customer requirements and the joint reduction of non-value adding activities. In order to achieve competitive advantage it is essential to set up and enhance collaborative customer relationships with focus on supply chain processes.

    Logistics

    We ensure that the flow of all materials and goods is ideally aligned. The continued growth of cosnova Beauty requires a constant optimization of the supply chain and (intra-) logistic processes. In collaboration with our sister company, CNL GmbH, we constantly analyze and optimize our interfaces and processes. 

    Order Process

    In the Order Process team, we process up to 500 orders from around the world every day. In doing so, we maintain close contact with our colleagues in Sales as well as our warehouse and the Logistic team. We prepare all of the documents required for export to ensure that our products can be delivered to customers all over the world in the fastest way possible.

    Planning

    We are the first point of contact in the company for any questions regarding sales quantities,  product profitability and service level. Our main objective is to provide our consumer the best product availability.

  •  

    Trade Marketing

    Our department is the interface between Sales, Marketing, Communication and retailers. Our remit covers the development of our cosmetic counters, regularly changing Trend Editions displays and secondary placement. In addition, we are also responsible for optimum product placement and communication at the POS.
