Looking Back On Glutathione Sample and Orlistat Manufacturer Case

Mr. Oleg first finds us through our website for pure alpha-arbutin powder used as a whitening agent for cosmetics in 2017 and we work together since then. Though his company registers and distributes cosmetic raw materials within Russia for over five years, this is his first time to try pharmaceutical ingredient distribution. He is not familiar with the regulations of the pharmaceutical industry and he needs our recommendation for the most suitable orlistat manufacturer for him.

Difficulties In Front Of Us

Though Mr. Oleg has been dealing with Cosmetic raw materials from China, this is the first time for him to try to import Pharmaceutical ingredients to Russia. The Registration process for pharmaceutical ingredients to get Import permits is more complicated than the process of registration of cosmetic raw materials. It takes more documents and stricter inspections on API manufacturers to register an API in Russian MOH.

At that time, shipping chemicals to Russia happens to be more difficult than at any time, while his end customer has an urgent demand for cosmetic-grade glutathione reduced for production. The end-user needs the glutathione sample to run basic trial tests before the commercial order. Mr. Oleg has no other options but flies directly to our city to get the L-glutathione sample himself, meanwhile, to discuss the possible options for orlistat manufacturer.

If you are regular importers of orlistat powder from China, you should have already known the main 5 GMP manufacturers for pure orlistat powder:

  1. hisun Pharma
  2. Eastchina Pharma
  3. The United Laboratories (TUL) etc.

Nearly all of the manufacturers have signed exclusive distribution agreements with their early agents for distribution in Russia and other countries nearby.

The Result

After picking up samples from our office for Glutathione Reduced powder, Mr. Oleg and Chris fly right away to one of the orlistat manufacturers to sign a preliminary contract for an exclusive orlistat distribution agreement. Meanwhile, he also gets the orlistat sample for testing with him before we leave the factory for MOH registration.

How we did it

Through looking up Customs export data, we find that one of the manufacturers exported very small quantities in the recent two years to Russia. We also ask for help from a friend who is close to the manufacturer we try to work with. Our friend informs us that the manufacturer is not happy about the exclusive distribution agreement with his current agent in Russia. The agent places very small orders after signing. It doesn’t even meet half of the quota written in the agreement. The manufacturer wishes to stop the agreement by the end of the year and start another one with more potentials. You may say it’s our pure luck for this case, but we would say God helps those who help themselves. We tried our best against all odds and then we finally made it.

When it comes to this point, you may say this is the end of the story, but no, it is not. It happens that Mr. Oleg is a Basketball fan like Chris. Before Mr. Oleg leaves for his flight, he and Chris managed to play some quality basketball together.
