'OVER 14 YEARS SELLING DISCOUNT BRAND NAME COSMETICS'
The Cosmetic Department is an importing and wholesaling company. We specialise in deeply discounted brand name cosmetics such as Revlon, Maybelline, L’Oreal, Max Factor, Covergirl, Rimmel and many more. Our wholesale prices are as low as 15% of retail prices. The Cosmetic Department has a national distribution and wholesale to independent pharmacies, pharmacy groups and resellers throughout Australia and the world. We have been in operation since 2006, with our Head Office offices in Sydney, Australia. We are continually growing and expanding in response to the discount cosmetic market. We keep up to date on current trends and upcoming developments in the cosmetic industry to continue to service our customers with the best, most popular brands on the market at deeply discounted wholesale prices. Our wholesale cost price and brand assortment, gives you the chance to beat the competition on both pricing and product assortment. To keep your profit margins as high as possible, pharmacies and resellers make at least 100% on all clearance cosmetic products. This is the highest possible return for your investment and your customers will love you for it and keep coming back to see what is new. All clearance sale packs are sold in 24 units and there is no minimum order to get started.
I started The Cosmetic Department after a trip to the United States where I was shocked at how much we pay for cosmetics in Australia. I immediately thought, something needs to done about this! After spending a year researching and meeting with lawyers, we started wholesaling to pharmacies at a fraction of the normal cost and we have not stopped growing ever since. I really love what I do.

Hands is dedicated to enriching the lives of disadvantaged children and communities in Thailand. 100% of all donations go directly to the kids and communities. Michelle cycled 500km in 2018 & 2019 across Thailand, raising over $10,000 and donated this to Hands. Cycling 500km from Bangkok to Thailand in just 5 days through 45 degrees heat to raise these funds for underprivileged children in Thailand was a rewarding and emotional experience she will never forget.
