The cosmetic industry is enormously profitable business, especially in a society where the need to stay looking healthy and young is all important.

Cosmetics are no longer just a luxury, but seen a necessity, especially in the western world. Many women and men wouldn't dream of not buying fragrant shower-gel or an anti-wrinkle moisturiser; these items have become as important has toothpaste and toilet roll.

Cosmetic companies develop anything that is intended for personal care, to improve odour or appearance. Due to an increase in technology and the improvement of the manufacturing, the cosmetic industry is developing at an incredible pace. Careers are available in a huge range of areas, including:

  • Development
  • Production
  • Testing
  • Sales and marketing

Sales assistants working for cosmetic companies in their retail outlets or department store concessions, must have an in-depth knowledge of the cosmetic range, and be able to describe and sell the latest product.
