Our story

The story behind The Cosmetic Company

Established in 1995 by husband-and-wife team Allyson Gofton and Warwick Kiely, The Cosmetic Company established a strong research and development reputation utilising international recognised technologies to develop formulas - and became the trusted contract manufacturer of a wide range of cosmetic and skincare products for New Zealand and Overseas brands.

After 25 years building the company, Allyson wanted Warwick home in Cambridge to spend more time together as a family, and the business was acquired by The Cosmetic Company NZ Limited in 2021.

The new owners are experienced product businesspeople, based in New Zealand, with a strong reputation for growing healthy companies, who believe in the future of The Cosmetic Company and want to grow it, so it can provide even better products.
