Sourcing Beauty Tech Products: Step-by-Step


Confirm Product Needs

Beauty tech products can be complicated, so Kanary takes time to understand your precise product needs before we begin our search. We confirm if you want to start with a generic product, want to customize an existing product, or need to develop something entirely new. Our team provides input, as needed, to help make sure you understand everything your product may need to be successful.


Beauty Tech Product Supplier Search

Once we have a firm idea of your exact needs, Kanary begins an intensive supplier search. We start with 30-50 suppliers, and then narrow candidates based on how well they fit your needs. Kanary makes sure that potential suppliers are capable of needed certifications (like safety), and we consider factors like lead times, pricing, and engineering capabilities.


Sampling and Supplier Selection

After we have narrowed down the choices to around 3-5, Kanary starts an intensive vetting process. Our team visits factories, performs quality inspections, and makes connections with factory managers. We also order product samples and assist with their evaluation, and we consult with you to help make a final supplier choice.


Step 4: Mass Production

Once you've chosen a supplier, mass production begins. Kanary supervises the manufacturing of your products, and we install and enforce quality control protocols. Our team remains available to quickly respond to production issues, and we ensure that everything your product needs to ship, including packaging, is ready when your full order is complete.


Sea Freight Shipping and Clearing Customs

While mass production is underway, Kanary begins sea freight shipping planning (like booking containers). When your order is complete, we schedule delivery to the shipping port, we monitor shipping while it's in transit, and we keep you informed of your product's status in customs. Kanary helps you get the paperwork you need to clear customs and can help you troubleshoot customs delays, should they arise.


Final Delivery

Finally, when your order clears customs, Kanary connects with a domestic shipping partner for final delivery. Our team remains available to help you troubleshoot product issues (should there be any) by acting as a liaison between you and your supplier. We continue working on your order until you are completely satisfied.

Words from our clients

I’ve been in this industry for a long time and I was surprised that Kanary was able to help find us machines for a 1/3 of the cost compared with US and European manufacturers. What I really enjoy with Kanary is that they constantly keep me in the loop and get back to me almost instantaneously. What’s also great is that they kept me in the loop with the shipping, customs clearance, delivery, and also arrange travels for engineers from the factory to install our equipment.  The quality has been outstanding and I’m in the process of building out a new facility with them.

I’ve been in the construction industry for over 30 years. We’ve always bought from US distributors. I reached out to Kanary out of curiosity to see if we could find similar construction materials of high quality. I did not think they were going to make much progress and so I was shocked when they found the exact manufacturer that my distributors have been buying from within 2 weeks. They were able to make contact and have the factory send me samples within a week.  By connecting directly with the factory, we’re looking at savings of over 30%.

We’ve done quite a few different packaging projects with Kanary in the past (Child-resistant packaging, glass jars, plastic bags, shipper boxes, etc.). We sent AI files to Kanary, who then worked directly with the factory's design team to make prototypes of the packaging. Our in-house designer is very particular about our designs and Kanary was really flexible and worked with us when our designers wanted to make changes in the packaging development process. They were able to manufacture different prototypes at different price points, which gave us options when making our final decision.

Beauty Tech Products FAQs

What are my fulfillment choices when sourcing laser hair removal products from China?

Kanary helps our clients with multiple fulfillment options when they source products from China, like laser hair removal devices. There's a lot of variation in this product niche, so which fulfillment option you choose will be product dependent, in addition to being dependent on your specific business needs:

  • Traditional sea freight and domestic fulfillment: Many of our clients stick to traditional fulfillment strategies, like using sea freight for bulk orders to domestic warehouses, where they fulfill customer orders. If you don't operate in the ecommerce space (or you aren't ordering products meant to be customer facing), then this is likely the option you'll choose. 
  • China fulfillment: If you're operating in the ecommerce space, then China fulfillment might be an option for you. In this strategy, your order is delivered from your chosen factory to a China fulfillment center, where products are prepared to be shipped directly to customers. 
  • Hybrid fulfillment: Depending on your product and needs, using both traditional sea freight for domestic fulfillment and China fulfillment might provide much needed elasticity to your supply chain. 

If you're interested in fulfillment options, Kanary will use EcommOps, our trusted fulfillment partner specializing in China fulfillment.

Can I trust the quality of beauty tech products I source from China?

Yes! There's nothing inherently problematic about product quality when you source products from China. The real problem is that many businesses aren't prepared to manage factories in a way that assures that quality standards are met. Even if they are, trying to manage a factory overseas (like one in China) is an enormous challenge that most businesses just don't have the resources to tackle. 

It's one of the biggest reasons businesses partner with Kanary for sourcing help in China. Sure, we find factories that are great matches for our clients, but we also manage those factories through the entire production process. It helps to guarantee product quality, and it eliminates many of the common issues commonly associated with China factories.

Can Kanary help me find multiple suppliers for a complex beauty tech product?

Yes! Our specialty is finding the exact suppliers needed for a product, and that includes multiple suppliers for a complex project. This could mean finding raw material and assembly factories, or it could mean multiple factories producing independent components, which are all brought together and assembled by a final supplier. 

Regardless of how complex your product is, Kanary can help!

Are EMS muscle massagers sourced from China safe to use?

EMS muscle massagers sourced from China are as safe to use as any other kind of EMS muscle massager, just as long as proper quality control protocols are followed. Kanary specializes in managing factories (as well as finding factories with the required certifications needed to make EMS products safely to begin with).

How can I find white label suppliers for facelift masks?

Facelift masks are a common, popular product, and one that many businesses look for in a white label operation. Finding an ideal supplier is crucial for a successful white label campaign, but it's not always so easy to find a factory that's a good fit. Here are a few ways you can find white label suppliers for facelift masks:

  • Alibaba: Alibaba is where many start their supplier search (including Kanary!) It's the world's largest B2B platform, which makes it easy to find hundreds of supplier options. However, not all of those suppliers are a good match for any given business (and some of those suppliers simply aren't good), so you'll need to vet any given choices thoroughly. 
  • Trade shows: If you're able to find a trade show for beauty tech, you may be able to find white label suppliers for facelift masks. It's a great way to make an easy connection with factory managers, though you will still need to perform your due diligence in vetting any potential choices you make. 
  • General online searches: There are a lot of suppliers that have websites intended to receive customer solicitations, so finding an ideal factory could be as easy as making a Google search! However, as with any option, you still need to vet any choice you find. This is especially true here, since many online platforms for white label products aren't directly from factories. Instead, they are trade companies, and while they may provide a quality product, you're going to pay a higher price than you otherwise would. 
  • Sourcing specialist: Finally, many businesses rely on sourcing specialists, like Kanary, to find ideal factories, including white label operations. Using a sourcing specialist makes the process of finding a supplier much faster, and additional services are usually provided. For example, Kanary helps clients find factories, but we also provide quality control, shipping services, prototype development, graphic design, and other services to help jump start your product. 

Is using suppliers found on Alibaba for infrared body wraps a good idea?

Using suppliers from Alibaba can be a good idea. Afterall, when Kanary starts our supplier search, we often use Alibaba as one of our tools to find options. However, the key is making sure you thoroughly vet any supplier you connect with. The problem businesses face isn't using Alibaba, it's using Alibaba and assuming all possible options are high-quality and a good match for their business needs. 

If you're trying to vet a supplier on your own, consider some of the following tips:

  • Check communication: If a supplier struggles to communicate, then you should probably choose another supplier. You may not see this immediately, as many factory managers will use online translators. This works well enough for basic communication, but won't be enough for detailed negotiations or communicating product needs. 
  • Request samples: You should request samples any time it is feasible to do so, which is the vast majority of the time (an example of when it's not feasible is if you are sourcing a single piece of heavy machinery).   
  • Visit the factories: If you're serious about vetting a factory, you should determine how you can visit the factory in-person. This allows you to see their general operations, how they enforce quality control, and makes it easy to meet factory managers or owners.

How can I develop a prototype spin brush with a supplier in China?

Beauty spin brushes have become popular products, and it's a common option for businesses to customize an existing product or create an entirely new one from scratch. Developing a prototype is very product dependent, so the following steps won't be exact. Consider them a general framework for how prototypes are often developed:

  • Customize or build from scratch: First, you'll decide if you're going to take an existing spin brush and customize it, or if you are going to design one from the ground up. 
  • Create design: Next, you need to have very detailed design plans. You aren't going to develop design plans with a factory, you are going to deliver completed design plans, knowing that you may need to tweak certain design parameters. 
  • Find a factory: Next, you'll look for a factory that has the engineering capability to customize or create a novel product. 
  • Deliver designs: Now, your business delivers design details to the factory. If the factory says that a certain design needs to be tweaked, you need to work with them to understand why and what alternatives there may be. 
  • 3D printing: You often won't make a fully completed prototype right off the bat. Instead, the factory will make a 3D printing of your prototype and ship it to you. This will let you see if your design actually works. If there's a critical flaw, you can make design changes before you create molds, tools, and have a genuine prototype. 
  • Molds and tools: If your 3D printing looks good, it's time to invest in tooling and molds. Molds help form the pieces of your spin brush, while tools help to craft the intricate parts of your product. This will easily be the most expensive part of developing a prototype, which can easily be in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. 
  • Prototype production: Finally, you can create a genuine prototype. Since this won't be at a massive scale, your prototypes will generally be far more expensive than your mass produced products will be. 
  • Mass production: If you like your prototype, then you'll move to general mass production.

Can Kanary help me source multiple kinds of products from multiple suppliers in China at the same time?

Yes! It's logistically challenging for businesses to find and manage multiple suppliers while also making sure that their products are ready in close enough timeframes that they can be shipped together. Kanary specializes in this kind of logistic planning, and we have helped many of our clients develop and implement consolidated shipping plans into their supply chain. 

Consolidated shipping is a shipping strategy where businesses will wait for their entire order to be completed (or enough of an order to fill an entire shipping container). Then, containers are shipped as full-container loads, which helps save on the per-unit costs of shipping and makes clearing customs much easier. 

If you're interested in creating a consolidated shipping strategy, Kanary would love to connect!

Can Kanary help me visit a factory in China?

Yes! Kanary offers travel assistance for businesses looking to travel to China factories and meet with factory managers. While it's not required, we recommend any business that is planning on making a long-term investment with a China factory to visit, in-person, at least one time.
