Beauty & Bathroom Products

All Clean and Tidy

This pretty lavender range of bath and beauty products from Lutex Co Ltd uses high-quality raw materials imported from Europe and the US

Beauty and the bathroom are connected by the products needed to facilitate personal hygiene and enhance one's appearance. Many such products are commonplace, such as the hairbrushes, nail scissors and cleaners that Hong Kong manufactures in profusion.

Pa Shui Industries (China) Co Ltd, manufacturing brushes and sundry products since the firm's founding in 1987, today offers hairbrushes, combs, compact mirrors for handbags or bathroom dressers and electric toothbrushes.

Company manager Persia Chau says, "We have many colours in our range of beauty and bathroom products. Our design team creates practical yet elegant products for all requirements."

She says that Pa Shui has patented many of its designs. "Apart from OEM business, we also sell products bearing our own brand names, Dentise and Propre. Our major markets are Europe, primarily, then North America, Japan, the rest of Asia and Australia."

FOB Hong Kong prices per set (with minimum order quantities) are: model EB-6-4PCS battery operated, rotary toothbrush at US$1.64 (10,000); model EB-7-2PCS battery operated, rotary toothbrush at US$0.99 (10,000); and model TB-100 travel toothbrush with 3g of toothpaste at US$0.112 (12,000).

New lines for Pa Shui Industries (China) Co Ltd include these lint-brushes with mirrors (left), battery-operated rotary toothbrushes (centre) and a curling hairbrush (right)
Other items include model B-22E battery operated massage hairbrush at (unit price and minimum order quantities) US$0.553 (10,000); model 25050-C1-S sprayed silver tone curling hairbrush at US$0.396 (5,000); and model RM-66 lint brush with mirror at US$0.247 (7,200).

Far East (Wu's) Industrial Co Ltd is one of the two top manufacturers of manicure sets in Asia. The company started business in 1967. Assistant sales executive William Wong says, "While we continue to do quite well, business this year is down 8-10% on last year."

The company manufactures its own scissors and most of the items contained in its manicure sets. "However, we also purchase a few small items, such as nail clippers, from outside sources. The point is to maintain the quality. Whereas most implements are made from stainless steel, the nail clippers are made from carbon steel," says Wong.

"The cases for our manicure sets may be fashioned from metal and PU or even have real leather pouches. It depends on the customer's specifications. However, no matter the materials, the quality level of our products is high as they are destined for solid markets in Europe and the US," he adds.

The minimum order is 1,000 pieces per item and, according to Wong, Far East was ISO 9001-certified in October 2001.

Another interesting manufacturer is Kai Fat Brush Fty Ltd, a specialist in hairbrushes. Connie Chan, speaking on behalf of company president Jack Tsui, says Kai Fat is one of the three top producers of hairbrushes in Hong Kong with a monthly production of five million pieces.

"We produce bathroom hairbrushes in plastic and wood, but also have aluminium models made expressly for hair professionals working in salons. Another line produces hairbrushes for retail sales, and our products are typically found in Wal-Mart or Kmart stores," she says.

"We have different models. Our round brush uses either natural or PP bristles. Our vent brush is an all-purpose hairbrush, and our cushion brush is used to massage the scalp while brushing the hair. The boar bristle hairbrush is another type of massage brush," she adds.

A minimum order is 3,000 brushes with OEM labels or Maggie, the Kai Fat brand name. The major markets are the US and Europe.

Chung Mei Industries Ltd makes electrical appliances, has been in the business since 1963, and offers bathroom heaters.

CEO Sebastian Man says, "Our bathroom heaters are made of plastic with coiled or zigzag heating elements and come with adjustable thermostats. Our towel warmers, on the other hand, are made of either stainless steel or metal in a variety of finishes according to customers' requirements."

Examples of different finishes are white spray, matt silver spray paint and silver gloss chrome. All of these warmers come with a silicon heating wire with different voltage ratings for different countries.

"Our towel warmers are also environmentally friendly as the tubes use dry heat and there is no oil inside," he adds. A minimum order is one TEU, and FOB prices are available on request.

If buyers are looking for a manufacturer of elegant electric foam makers, then Talentone Development Ltd may be the one, says director of sales and marketing Joe Fung.

"This product has just been released on to the market. It is a conveniently sized foam maker that can be placed anywhere to be used as either a face cleanser or over a bath for a foam bath. Just add water and liquid soap - any liquid soap from the supermarket will do - press the button on the top and the machine will generate the foam," he explains.

"We use ABS to ensure quality and right now we are supplying buyers in Europe and the US. We offer our Home Talent brand name, and can manufacture to OEM specifications and for buyers with their own brand names," he says.

The FOB Hong Kong price is US$5 each and a minimum order is 1,000 pieces per order.
