Ramping up launch timelines means:

  • Reformulating existing products with fewer and more natural ingredients.
  • Adapting product design to bring hybrid, unisex and multi-use products to global markets faster.
  • Managing an interconnected web of global regulatory certifications and claims.
  • Automating the feedback loop between Innovation, Marketing, R&D, Quality and Regulatory groups.
  • Adjusting Innovation priorities as consumer beauty technology and preferences change buying behavior.

Selerant’s Devex PLM system offers Cosmetics brands and manufacturers a single-truth platform for managing these many internal process changes in one place, bringing greater control, transparency, and oversight into Cosmetics product development and launch so you can innovate and get competitive products to market faster.

  • Implement one system that can be used to share information between Innovation, Marketing, and R&D groups.
  • Expedite new product research by accessing a history of global lab trial versions and outcomes.
  • Implement automated PLM processes that meet the speed of OEM requests.

Expedite Formula Creation

  • Use Cosmetics-specific ingredient and formulation templates to standardize data requirements for new products.
  • Connect stability testing information into formulation templates for easier market launch.
  • Quickly modify existing formulations for new uses and markets and connect all global variations.

Rapidly Expand Beauty Product Portfolios

Increase the speed of innovation for new product categories and markets by eliminating data redundancies and process bottlenecks and increasing enterprise collaboration capabilities.

Ensure Quality Standards Across Global Markets

With standardized PLM processes in place, you’ll ensure that quality levels are met even as formulations changes for new markets and gain global visibility into non-conformance issues.

Meet Fit to Purpose Regulatory Claims

Reach new markets with deep visibility into how formulation design and production processes impact country-specific product claims, such as anti-aging, silicon-free and more. Connect calculations to labeling, packaging, and marketing activities to create accurate, transparency product claims that reflect internal procedures.

Consolidate Application Use & Cost

Instead of using many disparate applications, points-solutions or spreadsheets typically leveraged to manage product development between many working groups, teams can use one solution. Integrations with core systems like ERP enable you to consolidate applications and IT maintenance, integration and support costs, and easily pipe product data to other downstream systems.
