Why your MOQ 12000 PCS? Could that be reduced?

Custom cosmetics products, it means unique products, that will involve mold, materials, crafts and other issues.
In the cosmetics industry, 99% of packaging manufacturers MOQ 12000 PCS, some of the big companies higher to 20000 pcs.
Our factory each item MOQ 12000pcs, and each color MOQ 2000-3000 PCS.

Manufacturing profits very small, and the order fixed costs are high. That is losses will occur at the beginning of production, and if doing the small order that easy lost money. Only reach MOQ that mass production can minimize  production costs.

For example:

  • Produce lipstick tubes, the mold cost is around 3,000-8,000 USD, and the tube machine produces 50,000 pcs around 4 hours. If doing small order like 10,000 pcs.
  • First the preparatory work of begin production takes around 3 hours(installation of the mold to the machine, preparation of the raw materials, color matching and make sample to test) .
  • After that produce 10,000 pcs within 1 hour. Plus all the time is 4 hours only produce 10,000pcs. But the machine continuous production 4 hours maximum output can do 50,000 pcs. so that is the main reason not accept small order.
