Investigate Flora and Fauna

Cosmetic material is an organic resource, meaning it can be produced by plants such as Flora and Fauna. Scan the Flora and Fauna whenever you visit a planet, as it will not just help you get a 100% planet survey score, but you might get Cosmetic Material.

Loot from enemies and containers

Enemies drop several kinds of resources, and there are chances that you might get Cosmetic material in Starfield. One of the best ways to stock resources without spending money is to raid enemy ships and loot items from their container. You can also loot containers in abandoned settlements, outposts, and supply posts.

What is the cosmetic material used for in Starfield?

Cosmetic Material is a rare organic resource that you will need for mod crafting recipes and upgrading gears. The first time you will need Cosmetic Material will probably be when you upgrade your Spacesuit helmet by applying a mod.
