Cosmetic Chemist, Certified Nose, Executive, and Marketer Vince Spinnato began his career in the Personal Care, Cosmetics, and Fine Fragrance industries over 25 years ago. After majoring in Cosmetic Chemistry and International Business, Spinnato completed a two-year apprenticeship to study the manufacturing and retail end of the industry, nationally and internationally. During this apprenticeship, Spinnato helped create new formulations and learned how to manufacture, develop custom tooling for packaging while enjoying considerable success refining and developing new chemical ingredients for cosmetics. It was at his apprenticeship that Spinnato learned the “real world” effectiveness of ingredients and raw materials and of working and managing within a team framework.
Over the next 25 years, Spinnato went on to consult, help develop and manufacture new product lines and private label lines for numerous cosmetics and health care companies such as Chanel, Limited (Victoria Secret, Bath & Body Works), Gap/Banana Republic, P&G, J&J, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Kmart/Sears and many others. He also worked on developing new products for celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Ole Henriksen, Jessica Simpson, Lilian Garcia, Khloe Kardashian, Carrie Underwood, Pitbull, French Montana, and Carol Shaw, among others. Spinnato’s vigilance to ingredients and their corresponding results has been key to his product successes.
Vince is a member of the California Chapter of the SCC, and he has been a contributor to publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Esquire, GQ, Whole Foods Magazine, Health News Digest, Live, Riviera, WW D, OC Metro, Burn Magazine and Beauty Editor of Modern Luxury Magazine and, Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. Spinnato has also been a guest on television shows such as the Vicki Johnson Show, Go Curvy, Housewives of Orange County, Workout, Blow Out among others.
He has spoken in front of groups including the Society of OBGYNs regarding the functionality of transdermal pre- and post-menopausal products, as well as products treating sexual dysfunction in women. For several years Spinnato has been involved in women’s category issues such as pre and post-menopause, PMS, sexual dysfunction, breast tenderness, and varicose vein treatments.
Spinnato is extremely dedicated to (and takes great pride in) developing and manufacturing leading edge products for the beauty industry. He travels the world to monitor all of the latest cosmetic and personal care trends. In fact, Spinnato contributes to an International Trends Forecasts for the beauty industry.
In addition, Spinnato is a specialist in the creation and management of rapid growth strategies. Spinnato have been extraordinarily successful in increasing presence in existing channels and opening new ones for new ingredients, manufacturers and finished products.
