About Us

About Us

Summit Cosmetics Europe is a European distributor specialized in the distribution of raw materials for the cosmetic industry, with a headquarters in Paris and a sales presence in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and all European countries.

Our expertise relies on the confidence of our partners, suppliers, and customers who know the requirements of a profession where the performances need to remain innovative and sustainable.

To satisfy our customers, Summit Cosmetics Europe has a team with a scientific background that can communicate easily with the formulators and meet their needs. A European application lab allows for technical assistance to both suppliers and customers and develops innovative formulas. Summit Cosmetics Europe’s Marketing and Laboratory teams won major awards for three consecutive years at the Cosmet’Agora Fair.

We can offer a complete portfolio of cosmetic ingredients that meet global trends (naturality, sustainability, eco-responsability…) due to our close partnership with our suppliers. We aim to optimize our product range according to the different European and international regulations, Responsible Purchasing and to distribute raw materials that comply with the REACH Directive.

Our logistics platform, with three warehouses (UK, France, Germany), allows us to respond quickly to most customers’ needs with a high level of service (high capacity of storage to optimize carbon impact).

Summit Cosmetics Europe gives special attention to Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics & sustainability and CSRD topics; we entered the Ecovadis system in 2014 and were awarded the Platinum medal in 2021 and 2022. We are also attentive to certifications and standards related to the raw materials we offer, such as COSMOSRSPO or the ISO 16128 standard which we have been advocating to our suppliers since its publication in 2017.

Accuracy and traceability are our constant concerns in the document management and the tracking of goods.
