Build a Business

Wondering what exactly Build A Business can do for you? Well, you've come to the right place. We're here to answer all your questions and show you how to start your own Cosmetics Business.


What is a Base?


A Base is a finished product but does not contain fragrances or colourants. You can use the base as is or you can add your own fragrances and essential oils. Our bases are ready to use.


When I buy a box from Build a Business, what do I get?


When you buy a box from Build a Business, you get 1kg of 4 items which is 4kg of product. For instance, The SKIN Box includes: Cleansing Milk Lotion Base 1L, Toner Base 1L, Deep Cleansing Facial Wash Base 1kg and Beautifying Cream Base 1kg.


You will receive 4kgs of your chosen products in either a 1kg bottle for liquids, or a small 1kg bucket for more solid products.

You will also receive an informational pack and inci's.

What are inci's and why do I need them?


Inci's are basically ingredient listings. This will tell you and consumers what is in the product. We supply inci's for all bulk products and they are available under product information on the site. If you create a label, you should have inci's on the product so the customer knows what is in the product. This is also important for allergy information. Be sure to add inci's for any changes you make to any of your bases.


Can I use Build a Business products and brand them as my own?


Yes! Because we supply your chosen bases in bulk, you can fill them into your own containers and use your own branding.


What if I my business takes off and I want to buy larger quantities?


We absolutely love that for you! If you want to purchase 5kg + of a product, just pop jessica@brunational.co.za an email, and we will work out a customized price for you.


What if I want a finished product?


Yip! We do that too. Brunational has several products we call White Label Products which are bases or finished products containing fragrances, colours, actives etc. If you want us to finish your products, you will need to order 25kg of product and we will fill into your bottles, label, batch and do all the finishing touches.


What if what I am looking for isn't available on Build a Business?


Don't worry- we have hundreds of ready to go bulks available for you so you don't have to go through the Research and Development process. Just email jessica@brunational.co.za with what you are looking for, and we will work out a quote for you. If you want to create a product that's just for your brand, we can help with that too.


Do you supply packaging?


Unfortunately, we do not stock packaging.
