Other major contractors are Cosmetic Development Systems, Mansfield-King, I. Shay Cosmetics, Mediderm, Gordon, GAR, AMR, Garcoa, and Allure Laboratories. Below is our methodology and a deep dive into our findings.
In order to provide the requested information on the largest contract manufacturers of men's hair styling products in the US, we began the search by looking through credible sources in research reports, news, and press releases on the largest contract manufacturers of men’s hair styling products in the US. This search yielded a lot of information including precompiled lists of the top companies in the industry. Credible sources such as Cosmetics Business, Allied Market Research, and Grandview Research had in-depth industry reports highlighting the top manufacturers for men’s hair styling products. However, the companies identified through these sources are not contract manufacturers, but they manufacture their own products.
Next, we searched through the Manufacturing Market Insider newsletter, which specifically focuses on contract manufacturers and the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) 2018 – 2019 beauty reference guide directory of contract manufacturers. We also searched through databases such as Cosmetic Index and Thomas Register to identify private label product and contract manufacturers for men’s hair products. These search strategies yielded results on some contract manufacturers of men's hair styling products. We then reviewed the company websites to reaffirm their involvement in the industry. For any company identified using the strategy above that also had its own brands, we eliminated it from consideration.
Lastly, we searched for the estimated revenue for each of the contract manufacturer using financial databases such as Zoominfo, Crunchbase, Owler, and DB Hoovers. Based on revenue information, we were able to identify the top contract manufacturers in the US.
There was no publicly available direct revenue estimates specifically for men's hair styling products, but the overall company revenue data was available so we used the company's overall revenue to rank the companies. This list of contractors was developed by focusing on the companies identified in the Cosmetic Index and Thomas Register databases and ICMAD directory. The qualifying companies are contract manufacturers for men's styling products that operate in the US and were highlighted across multiple sources.
