About Us

 

 

 

New Zealand's leading multi-brand distributor of the world's most sought after cosmetics, fragrances, skincare and haircare brands.

 

Our 40 years of in-depth local market knowledge and experience, plus our unrivalled nationwide sales network and cutting edge distribution systems, ensures we provide outstanding performance and equity for the brands we represent.

Divisions

As specialist marketers of cosmetics, fragrance skincare and haircare, we at CS&Co. have intimate knowledge of the marketing variables which apply across different brands. Accordingly we have developed three distinct divisions, to ensure each category is uniquely represented, marketed and serviced.

Established in 1990, the Prestige Division is now the market leader in New Zealand's fragrance category.

Our first brand, Giorgio Beverley Hills, quickly became the market leader following its launch in 1990. This was followed by the extraordinary success of Calvin Klein and many more.

Brands currently in the CS&Co. Prestige portfolio include: Coty Luxury, BVLGARI, Givenchy, Kenzo, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney and Jurlique.

The Beauty Division is New Zealand's leading marketer and distributor of global cosmetics brands, skincare and core health products.

Brands in the portfolio include: Natio, Max Factor, COVERGIRL, Bourjois, Sally Hansen, Rimmmel London, Celebrity Fragrances, adidas, Playboy, Nice & Easy, Bosistos, Rock Tape, Funscreen, Skinnies and Duracell.
 

 

The Salon division was established in 2012, when CS&Co. became the home of Fudge Professional & ST Tropez in New Zealand. Recently we have expanded the Salon offering to include Eye of Horus Cosmetics and the Triumph & Disaster range.

With a team of qualified experts in their fields to assist with sales, marketing and technical support, the Salon sales team services both hair and beauty spa salons nationwide.
