FORMULATION & SAMPLING

The development of your new product is properly systematic
and scientifically accurate.
The steps are the following

Developing a New Formula starts in one of four ways

1. Send us a sample of an existing product, along with
its ingredient list and the price you are envisioning
2. Start with one of our stock formulas that we can
modify by adding the scent and color of your choice
3. We can custom develop a formula for you that will suit
your specific needs
4. Or, you can supply us with an existing formula

Then we need a Formula Profile that allows us to produce
an appropriate Sample. The sample is submitted for your
approval and reformulated when necessary. We also need a
Pack Profile describing how you would like your product
packaged. You may choose from stock alternatives or
custom packaging
