Our working are:
Does Cosmetics Lab supply any off-the-shelf products?
No we don't offer any off-of-the-shelf products. We only work with clients who are looking to develop their own unique products that best suit their brand. Even when it comes to concept developments in-house the likelihood of it fitting your brands requirements are slim to none. Even the slightest of changes to any currently existing product means a new formula, and thus is subjected to all tests and regulatory obligations as if it were a complete new formula.
How long does the process take?
Every product can take different lengths of time to process, for example a 100% organic may take longer as it's finding enough organic materials that possess the required chemical properties. On average, the entire process from first consultation to finishing production is between 6-9 months.
Am I able to discuss requirements directly with a development chemist?
As we mentioned in our breakdown of the overall process, you have total control over who you communicate with. Cosmetics Lab prides itself on having a 100% transparent and interactive process, meaning you can come into the lab whilst we're developing samples.
