  • Cosmetic Creations Ltd, has today announced that 90 jobs are to be created between its operations in Mayo and Cork, following an investment of €7.5million into the company. 

    Forty jobs are earmarked for the company’s Mayo head office in Claremorris, increasing the workforce there from 51 at present to 91. The company originally began manufacturing at the site in the town’s industrial estate in 1981.

    The workforce in Cork will rise to 100 with today’s announcement and the official opening of its newly designed facility in the city.

    Reinforcing today’s announcement is a newly agreed joint venture with Parnell Pharmaceuticals Limited, a California biopharmaceuticals company, with the company’s European headquarters relocating to the Cosmetic Creations campus in Cork.

    Cosmetic Creations manufacture over 100 individual products, most formulated in house, including skincare, personal care and self-tanning products.

    Owner and CEO of the company, Mayo native, Aiden Corcoran told Midwest News today  that following the company’s significant investment into the Claremorris facility and the acquisition and expansion of the former Yves Rocher site in Cork, their goal over the next five years is to become a global life sciences brand.

    Recruitment is underway for the new jobs.

    Cosmetic Creations, based in Mayo and Cork, has formulated and tested a new hand sanitiser called Airmedica, following requests from the public and private sectors, and will producing between 80 and 100,000 units per week.

    The company has, to date, been a manufacturer of skincare and cosmetic products but is expanding into the pharmaceutical market.

    Late last year, the company announced 30 additional jobs at its headquarters in Claremorris.

    China is one of the world’s leading bottle manufacturers and since they have scaled back production because of Covid19, it has meant containers for the new sanitiser have been hard to source.

    Commercial Manager of Cosmetic Creations Paddy Cunney says they are keeping aside a percentage of their stock for frontline healthcare staff, hospitals and nursing homes.
