All products manufactured by DBO Labs meet and exceed strict standards for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) as outlined by Health Canada and its partners in the International Cooperation on Cosmetic Regulation (United States, European Union and Japan), endorse the use of the International Standards Organization (ISO) Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices for Cosmetics, ISO Standard 22716
A protocol is like a recipe. On its own, a list of ingredients doesn’t necessarily tell you how to cook something.
Chemistry is complicated. Without a clearly defined manufacturing process, getting the correct result can be difficult.
Before we can manufacture from your formula, we have to test it.
Our stability and bacteriology testing assures us that the product will continue to perform and maintain its original properties, and have a robust preservative system for a long time after it is manufactured.
Once your product formulation successfully passes this testing, we are able to insure the against manufacturing defects when we produce it.
DBO Labs maintains a large library of ingredients from a curated list of specialized manufacturers. Each ingredient comes with a Certificate of Analysis to verify that it meets defined specifications.
This verifiable supply chain allows us to manufacture your product with complete confidence, knowing the source and quality of each ingredient.
If your ingredients are something we normally inventory, then we always use our ingredients by default.
If your formula requires ingredients we do not inventory (such as custom fragrances or specialized hero ingredients), then these are considered proprietary, and you will be required to supply them.
We will work with you as needed to ensure they come from a verifiable source, along with a Certificate of Analysis.
