Cosmetics inventory software that will nurture your personal care products from production to sale

The cosmetic industry is constantly growing and adapting to the needs of a demanding market. This means cosmetics producers must continuously innovate, using new techniques to make their products eco-friendly and cost-effective. Within Katana, the bill of materials (BOM) feature is crucial, ensuring you’re always using the perfect balance of ingredients for each product and handling automatic stock counting so you know when to reorder each ingredient to minimize lead time.

Use product recipes to create the perfect blend, minimize waste, and track batches

The foundation of quality cosmetics is a well-planned production process, with product recipes (or a bill of materials) refined and perfected to deliver great health and beauty goods.

To help you ensure quality throughout your line, Katana lets you create multiple BOMs, specifying each ingredient to maintain consistency every time a product is made. This is even more relevant when working with a team, so they always know which raw materials make which product and what quantities are required.

Your sales data will also enhance product management, guiding bulk reordering of materials based on demand. Katana’s reordering feature ensures timely stock replenishment, preventing ingredient shortages and order delays.
