Personal care and hygiene are important. They are so important that they should be central anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, in some parts of the world, like in East Africa, there is still a lot of experimenting going on with personal care and beauty products that do not meet the standard requirements and conditions applicable to East Africa; face, skin and hair care products that that do not comply with the TDFA guidelines. We want to put an end to this with the Traco business model.

The Traco business model

The Traco business model is a solution, not just for the African population, but also for you as an entrepreneur. The population in Tanzania, East Africa will be ensured of quality products at an attractive price. Work opportunities will be created by setting up containers as shops. As an entrepreneur, you will be able to launch products in East Africa with our experience and expertise and sell overstock personal care and hygiene products to this region. It is a classic win-win situation.

Are you interested in our Traco business model? Great! Because we are interested in you. We are always looking for new partners and products to enter the open market in East Africa with us.

Before a Cosmetic Product goes to Market...
1. Product Safety is paramount and is factored into ingredients selections, find formula selection and packaging choices to ensure that they are safe for the retailers and consumers;
2. Consumer & Clinical evaluation is performed to ensure the cosmetic product delivers on the claims and benefits that are expected by all consumers;
3. Microbiology conducts test;
4. Stability is conducted to ensure the cosmetic products formulation and packaging is compatible so that the product remains stable and safe throughout its shelf life;
5. Process development ..scales up the cosmetic product in the lab all the way to huge vats, ensuring quality control is maintained no matter where it is manufactured in the world;
