Private Label Activities

Created in 1982 in Varese in the heart of Europe, HSA Cosmetics is an Italian private label cosmetics manufacturer specialising in the production and marketing of cutting-edge cosmetic products.

Everything started with a dream: founded by the Zanzi family with the aim of developing an important expertise in hair color, HSA has now expanded its range of hair care, face and body products. Nowadays, HSA has become the ideal marketing partner for companies that intend adopting a 360 degree beauty approach to their brands and want to rock the cosmetic market by creating something unique.

 HSA is the private label cosmetics manufacturer that creates and manufactures in Italy to protect an originality recognised the world over. We are present in 90 countries on the 5 continents, helping beauty brands with their private label skin care and hair care lines.

Company Presentation

HSA excels in Private Label manufacturing for the export market, as well as distributing its own brands.

In the last few years, HSA has been going through an important evolution summarized with an acronym PDD: Product, Digitalisation and Distribution. HSA started its activity in 1982 with a great expertise in hair colors, but in recent years the company has enlarged its portfolio to other categories such as haircare and skincare. Private labelling represents 75% of the turnover, while our brand distribution covers the other 25%.

Internal R&D labs are the main resource of the company and they enable to provide a complete range of innovative products. Anyway, we not only provide products to our clients, but also strategic support regarding new trends, statistics and any other information that might help them develop new ranges and products. All the digital information, through e-books and blogs can be easily viewed on HSA website.

Digitalisation is fundamental to develope our business in this fast-evolving world. HSA is very active on social media, editing a blog, issuing newsletters and other communication streams. All this digital activity is getting a lot of attention, for example, last year in the USA our article views increased by 400%.

An important step in the development of our private label department happened when we started serving different kinds of clients - today we produce for companies selling online, or in retail stores, for example in the USA we are cooperating with brands selling in Ulta which has recorded an impressive growth in the beauty categories.

We have implemented a corporate sustainability policy to improve the impact on the environment of all our activities and suppliers collaborating with us. These are some concrete and practical actions to implement our green strategy: 50% of the energy used comes from the photovoltaic panels installed on all corporate buildings. Charging stations for electric cars are installed in the company yard to encourage their use. Short Supply Chain since 90% of packaging and packing materials are purchased in Italy. Some raw materials are purchased locally, km 0, to avoid polluting transport and support local businesses. For example, for some product lines we use chestnut honey typical of our territory and produced by local farms. We calculate the carbon footprint for some product lines to assess their harmful CO2 emissions. The aim is to initiate compensation projects through reforestation of some areas of the world that most require it. The first project is linked to our brand Eslabondexx. For some years now, we have adopted a Clean Care approach providing for the use of as many natural ingredients as possible, in combination with synthetic ingredients that are not harmful to man or the environment. We communicate how to use water in a conscious way both through the product and the advertising materials, to avoid wasting this increasingly valuable resource. We work to reduce the impact of packaging, eliminating overly heavy or bulky secondary and primary packaging. We decided not to use any more cellophane film in the packaging of hair dyes, resulting in a saving of about 15 tons of plastic per year. We know the new sustainable materials and green plastics that we implement in the new packaging. We use FSC cardboard boxes (FSC: Forest Stewardship Council).

We are applying on each product the symbols of the packaging material along with the indications of the waste separate collection. Sustainability also means social commitment, that is why we distribute free sanitizing gel in all schools in our territory to contribute to our local administration.


We are specialized in full service production of hair care, hair colors, skin care. All the formulations are H.S.A. property and we offer a high level of customization for every single client. We have our internal R&D laboratories: hair care, hair color and skin care.
