Company to create 30 new positions at Mayo head office

Cosmetic formulator and contract manufacturer Cosmetic Creations Ltd announced yesterday (Monday) that it plans to create 90 new jobs at its operations in Mayo and Cork. The announcement, which follows an investment of €7.5 million in the company, coincided with the official opening of the company’s Cork site.
Thirty of the 90 jobs have been earmarked for the company’s Mayo head office in Claremorris, increasing the staff numbers there to 80. The remaining 60 jobs will be across operations, supply chain, quality and formulation development in Cork, bringing the workforce there to 100.
The announcement follows a newly agreed joint venture with Parnell Pharmaceuticals Ltd, a California biopharmaceuticals company, with the company’s European headquarters relocating from Dublin to the Cosmetic Creations campus in Cork.
By the end of the year, Cosmetic Creations will have manufactured over 4 million units, consisting of more than 100 individual products, most formulated in house. These products include skincare, personal care, self-tanning, supplements and base pharmaceutical line products. The company expects to grow this number to over 15 million units by 2022.
Shipping to more than 15 countries globally, clients include private label national brand names and Irish, the UK and European retail multiples.
Commenting on the company’s growth, Aiden Corcoran, owner and CEO of Cosmetic Creations, said: “Over the last 12 months, we have invested in advanced formulation and manufacturing technologies in both Mayo and Cork, significantly expanding output capacity. Our target is to deliver over 7 million units next year to Ireland, the UK and Europe, and we look forward to partnering with leading brands that wish to bring quality Irish-made products to the market.”
Welcoming the announcement, Michael Ring TD, Minister for Rural and Community Development, said: “Cosmetic Creations has been a vital Mayo employer for 30 years, and I am delighted that they are continuing to expand and evolve. Their success is a testament to the opportunities for growth in Mayo and the surrounding region.”
