After three years of sustained growth for the company, in November 2020, LYNOSLIFE rebranded from Cosmetic Creations.

In the last 12 months, the company has manufactured and delivered over eight million units of hand sanitiser in total to sectors including retail, hospitality and healthcare. By mid-2021, the company will also have invested a total of €1.5million over 18 months into the Mayo and Cork sites, further increasing adherence to cGMP and enhancing output capacity, commercial marketing and ecommerce capabilities. Shipping to more than 15 countries globally, clients include brand leaders as well as house hold private label brand names for the Irish, UK and European retail markets.
