Owning an online cosmeceutical brand offers endless opportunity for growth. But without a strong fulfilment strategy, cosmeceutical brands can face challenges, including high shipping costs and slower delivery.
A 3PL like ShipBob can help. With ShipBob, you save time and money while optimising your supply chain. Learn how ShipBob can help grow your cosmeceutical brand.
Because ShipBob has a lot of people to handle our orders and additional warehouses we can expand into, we can scale up with ease as we continue to grow quickly. If we ran our own warehouse, it would be much harder to hire people and we’d inevitably outgrow the space.

What is cosmeceuticals fulfilment?
Cosmeceuticals fulfilment involves the picking, packing, and shipping of customer orders for cosmetic items that claim to provide medical benefit. Cosmeceutical items such as anti-aging creams, face washes, and hair treatments require extra care when it comes to warehousing, retail fulfilment, and shipping.
How ShipBob helps you grow your cosmeceutical online store
With ShipBob, ecommerce business owners can spend less time and money on inbound and outbound logistics, knowing that warehousing management is being taken care of. We provide a robust fulfilment centre network that offers safe and secure warehousing, and our logistics team ensures that products are safely stored.
From ShipBob’s dashboard, you have the option to assign a lot number to specific items stored in our fulfilment centre. After we receive your warehouse receiving order (WRO), we will store the items in separate locations, according to their lot number. You can learn more about our lot tracking process here.
ShipBob is a leading 3PL that partners with over 5,000 ecommerce businesses in a wide range of industries across the globe. ShipBob offers a growing global fulfilment network, 2-day shipping, premium 3PL software, and best-in-class customer support.
How ShipBob works
ShipBob’s software fully integrates with your ecommerce store to sync inventory and orders. Once we have your inventory, you can set reorder points to restock in time, view advanced data and analytics to understand performance, and much more. Store owners can keep an eye on the entire fulfilment process from a single, central dashboard.
If you want to grow your cosmeceuticals business sustainably, you need a 3PL you can trust. ShipBob offers everything you need to affordably expand your supply chain and get back to what’s most important: improving customer loyalty, increasing profits, and offering exceptional products. Once you connect your store with ShipBob’s technology, you can ship inventory to one or more of our fulfilment centre locations.

With ShipBob’s network of fulfilment centres, you can strategically split your inventory across our locations to get your products from point A to point B more quickly and affordably. Storing inventory near your customers helps reduce the shipping zones and costs associated with shipping orders to faraway destinations.
Distributed inventory also helps you stay competitive by offering fast shipping to your customers. When an order is placed, ShipBob’s algorithm automatically selects the warehouse and courier that will give you the quickest turnaround at the best price. This strategy has helped our merchants bring 13% savings to their bottom line.
100% Coverage Across the Continental US
If you’re looking to expand into the United States, ShipBob has 2-Day Express Shipping that provides 100% coverage in the continental US from even just one fulfilment centre.
You can also distribute your inventory across ShipBob’s fulfilment centres across all regions of the United States. We leave it up to you to decide where you want us to store your inventory.
At ShipBob, we track your orders from A to Z. Filter orders by status, search for specific orders, see a quick timeline view of where your order is in the fulfilment process (e.g. when an order is picked, packed, or shipped), easily find shipping-related information (e.g., weights, dimensions, or courier service), and get a quick snapshot of any orders that require action.
With order management software for your direct-to-consumer and wholesale shipments, you can manage subscriptions, make changes to your orders post-purchase, map your store’s shipping options to ShipBob, and automatically share tracking information with your customers.
At ShipBob, we empower merchants to manage their inventory with the right tools and guidance. It’s easy to view the status of inventory and quantity on hand across locations at any point in time, identify slow-moving inventory with high storage costs, and gain insights into the performance of units sold over time by channel.
Our inventory management software helps you set reminders to proactively replenish inventory with reorder notifications, bundle your products for promotions, make inventory transfer requests, and much more.
Reporting and analytics
To provide you with visibility into our operations and performance, and also hold ourselves accountable, ShipBob’s free analytics tool is packed with charts to help you with everything from year-end reporting, to better supply chain decision-making.
Data can be a competitive advantage, and our reports show an analysis of which fulfilment centres you should stock, days of inventory left before you run out, impact of promotions on stock levels, each shipping method’s average cart value, shipping cost, and days in transit, your fulfilment cost per order, storage cost per unit, and much more.
End-to-end customer experience
We care about the customer experience as much as you and strive to be an extension of your team. From custom branded boxes to free plain packaging, ShipBob works with you to provide the unboxing experience you want. We also help you offer the fastest, most cost-effective shipping options to meet your customers’ expectations.
As soon as an order ships, tracking is pushed back to your store. We also offer return management services, allowing customers to generate return shipping labels and track returns, while getting your products processed and back into your available inventory as efficiently as possible.
