Design Quest is an end-to-end solutions provider for beauty brands seeking to outsource their product manufacturing and back office needs. Through the top-level experiences of our team, we’ve built a vast network of supply partners capable of meeting the needs of even the most demanding beauty brands. We provide cutting-edge innovation, design, and manufacturing while offering our clients a capsulated turnkey solution for their manufacturing needs. 


The beauty industry is one of the most valuable global consumer markets.
Traditionally the consumer was highly brand-loyal while expecting consistent quality and 
performance from the products they use everyday. While this may still be true for some market segments, the introduction of social media and growth in the Indie Brand segment of the market has led to consumers wanting to try new things and experiment with the products they use. As a result, luxury and indie brands alike place great importance on innovation in order to keep up with ever-evolving trends and maintain consumer loyalty.

This innovation often comes in the form of cosmetic packaging, a key success factor in the industry that makes up a multi-billion dollar global market.  But having brand-aligned packaging that stands out goes much further than just designing a fancy box.  A number of key elements actually go into it - presenting a variety of challenges that regularly take businesses’ attention away from the branding efforts that are so crucial to their success.

In response, beauty brands are looking to outsource these elements of the supply chain to turnkey solutions providers.  However, the search for a partner that can help optimize efficiency while catering to precise needs and infusing innovation can be extremely difficult.  There’s a huge opportunity for a more brand-friendly, expert-level provider to step in and take the market by storm.


Introducing Design Quest:
a private label manufacturer that provides innovative design and production solutions to the cosmetics industry.  Our end-to-end turnkey services allow brands to free up their time and get back to the bottom line.  At long last, they have an industry insider to rely on that can deliver a stable supply source focused strictly on their specific needs.

The nimble and agile approach we take to product & packaging innovation is a refreshing change from that of our larger competitors. It allows us to provide outstanding customer service while still being large and capable enough to cater to the latest industry trends. 
No matter if it’s a Millennial-focused indie brand or a luxury provider, our focus on quality and industry-leading innovation provides lasting value for any beauty client. 
We’ll gladly sit behind the scenes and help drive your brand to the top of the market!
