How To Obtain Cosmetic Material?

From my experience, there are multiple ways of getting your hands on the Cosmetic Material. I’ve listed them below:

  • Players can get the Cosmetic Material by visiting different vendors throughout the Settled Systems.

  • You can also get the Cosmetic Material from different plants. 

All of the above-mentioned methods are thoroughly explained as follows:

Buying From Vendors

Cosmetic material is available at numerous establishments throughout the galaxy, including places like Jemison Mercantile in the New Atlantis. The cost and quantity of cosmetic materials can fluctuate based on the shop and your character’s level, so I would advise you to explore various vendors.

Once you have bought the Cosmetic Material, you can also consider waiting for 24 hours to allow their inventory to replenish and buy again from the same vendor. 

I discovered some other vendors from where the Cosmetic Material can be obtained which are:

  • The UC Distribution Center
  • The UC Exchange
  • Shepard’s General Store

Looting Enemies And Containers

You can acquire Cosmetic Material by defeating foes and scavenging their remains or various containers. Since the loot is unpredictable, there is no guarantee of finding Cosmetic Material every time, but I advise you to inspect every hostile you encounter or chest that you stumble upon. Additionally, you may come across other valuable items or credits during your exploration.

Obtain From Plants

Cosmetic Material can also be obtained through an alternative method by venturing to diverse planets and conducting scans on their plant and animal life. From what I’ve experienced, some of these entities may yield cosmetic materials as a natural resource accessible through interactive harvesting. Utilize your scanner to pinpoint plants such as Flora or Fauna as they possess Cosmetic Material and concentrate your efforts on them.

However, this approach is cost-free and environmentally conscious, although it may take a lot of patience and dedication to gather a sufficient quantity of Cosmetic Material.
