Each product is different. Some require ingredients to be sourced before development can begin while some require more complex research from our team.
After we consult with you about your needs, budget and performance goals, formulation begins.
We create up to three different samples for each product during development. With each sample, take as long as you need to review and test before providing feedback.
This sample and feedback cycle has the biggest impact on time in the development process. All-in, we usually estimate between 3-12 months to complete a formula.
Of course. It is unusual for clients to need more than 3 samples before arriving at the final formula, however, if you need more, additional samples can be produced for for an a la carte fee. (see our current fee schedule)
What will your packaging saying about your product?
There are many different packaging materials out there. When you are choosing the look and feel you want, let us help you choose the material best suited to the ingredients in your product.
As part of the Custom Formulation process we will do a 40-day stability test with your final formula using your desired packaging to see how well it holds up. By the time it is complete, we will have simulated aging your product in the package for 2 years.
