Development

“You don’t draw with chalk and charcoal, you paint with the entire colour spectrum” – A quote from one of our clients that describes perfectly our talent for using the best of both modern and traditional raw materials to formulate the finest bespoke products for your chosen market.

Working Together

Once we have a detailed brief we begin the formulation process. Close contact and regular communication is essential during development, and we strongly recommend that you come to our facilities laboratory, in the UK or in Italy, to work hands-on alongside your development chemist.

What we Formulate

We can develop anything from everyday toiletries, hair care and skin care to the most exclusive and advanced products such as serums and medical devices. We specialise in boutique products for niche markets, but always apply the same attention to detail and quality no matter what we create. See our full list for inspiration.

We are unique and we create unique products. This only happens with time, thought and effort, and the skills of our fully qualified technical team.

Product Development

The initial phase of development is an exploratory stage and so, as added reassurance, first submissions are sent without any obligation. This allows you to evaluate the technical interpretation of your brief without any financial risk on your part. If the work falls short of your expectations we will cease development and nothing is payable.

Quality

We are an ISO 22716 accredited cosmetic development company, thus we comply with the Cosmetic Good Manufacturing Practices guidelines. You can expect the highest standards at all stages of development, manufacture, filling and finishing.

Testing

Every approved formula that goes to market is subject to a series of legally required, stringent tests, assessing factors such as shelf life, pack compatibility and microbiological stability. The process takes a minimum of 12 weeks during which time we supply monthly reports on how testing is progressing. At the end of testing the results are independently checked, verified and signed off by an independent assessor.

Indicative Timeline

Creating a new product or product range is a complex process. If you have little experience in cosmetic development our experienced team will guide you at all stages, providing expert knowledge on what we know best and advising on other essentials you need to consider to deliver your final product. Requirements are different for each of our customers but you can see a typical product development timeline below, or take a look at our detailed timeline which takes you through the procedure, dependent on whether you are experienced in cosmetic development or new to the industry.
