Prototype Display Stand for Halal Cosmetics Products

The Halal Cosmetics Company are a Lancaster based supplier of Halal skincare products,. Their products are paraben and SLS-free, and are proudly made in Britain.

Assistance required

Lancaster Product Development Unit (LPDU) was approached with the brief to assist Halal cosmetics in attracting more customers to their product, whilst still maintaining their unique aesthetic. Concepts were considered for a variety of aspects, but ultimately a re-design of the display stand was deemed most beneficial.

Project outcomes

A contemporary, multi-levelled stand was modelled using Halal Cosmetics’ signature colours and incorporating their logo. This required the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software Solidworks, which allowed the part to be revised easily to obtain the most suitable design. A slightly modified prototype stand was produced utilising SLS technologies to enable Halal Cosmetics to fully asses the design before getting full size prototypes and production stand manufactured. Various coating options were investigated including painting, full colour printing and hydro-dipping, to enable Halal Cosmetics to choose the most appropriate method for subsequent prototypes and production items.

Funding overview

This work was part financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the SusDRAM:EDA project, which provides SMEs in the North West of England with mechanical engineering support.
