Manufacturing & Production

With 15 years of being the silent partner in your brand's success, we continue to expand the Cosmetics Lab's production and manufacturing capabilities. In our eyes, we aren't just manufacturing almost any type of product or filling any type of container you require, we're bringing your dreams to life. 

At our UK production facility, we can produce at volume, with a capacity of manufacture up to 100,000 units per day. Our facility is registered with Sedex and Eco-cert whilst complying with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).


Although all raw materials are quarantined and inspected upon arrival, we take extra care ensuring the quality of material throughout the entire product. Inspecting the colours, scents and textures of the raw material first, we then take a deeper look. Screening the micro-organism for any traces of contamination is an important foremost part of the production process. If we detect any traces of contamination, should it be suitable we conduct a decontamination procedure to pure the raw material of all contagions. Additional tests such as water content test, viscosity test and vibration tests are all conducted to ensure the raw materials molecular structure is intact and hasn't been comprised in any way.


Once all raw materials have been deemed fit for use, we access our secure datastore where we keep your products formula. Using complex mathematics we calculate a new formula required to being mass manufacturing. Materials and components are then mixed and distributed into the relevant machines. The Mixing & Filling manufacturing process includes dissolution, charging, cooling and filtering with your formulation then filled into the appropriate packaging. We use Krieger pharmaceutical mixing vessels to help. 


As we pride ourselves on producing the highest quality product for our clients, we conduct a further stage of testing and inspection. When we conduct this testing, we're ensuring that our formulations are correct so that all individual products contain the accurate measure of raw materials, therefore, ensuring product validity. Whilst we test the product's compounds, we also inspect the semi-finished product's colour, texture and scent profile. The final step in this stage is to carry out shelf-line testing.


With the newly created product easily passing all required tests and screenings, the bulk is passed to the warehouse and fulfilment team. Cosmetics Lab are aware with "issue" that can occur with some shipment and delivery services so we take extra care to use only the best, most trusted companies. For clients who are producing smaller quantities of products and live locally, we are more than happy for you to come and collect your product if you'd rather.

"When a formulation arrives with our production team, it is the most exciting part of the development because this is the moment that the brand comes to life. I love seeing our brands on the shelves of retailers, and winning awards, knowing that they passed through our strictest standards and production"
