The Product Development Brief

  • Complete our easy-to-use New Product Development Form
  • Our chemists review your brief to determine whether we can manufacture your product (3-5 working days)
  • If your product is feasible, we will then provide you with estimate pricing

The Formulation Phase

  • After feedback from our chemists, if you wish to proceed we charge a modest fee (this covers raw materials)
  • Our R&D team will then create your formulation samples (under 5 weeks)


  • Once you approve the formulation samples we’ll provide a firm manufacturing quote
  • We test the fill volume of your packaging and the compatibility of the product/packaging

Product PET & Stability Testing

  • Your products undergo Preservative Efficacy Testing and Stability Testing by an independent external microbiological laboratory (charged directly to you)

Order & Production Scheduling

  • Place your order
  • Pay deposit
  • Raw materials are procured for your product
  • Production schedule is dependent on due dates of raw materials, availability and packaging delivery


  • Once the raw materials arrive, your chemist follows your products into manufacturing ensuring product integrity and efficiency
  • Quality Control checks will be conducted throughout this entire process

Product Testing

We ensure not only that your products are beautiful and functional, but stand up to the rigours of time and any possibility of contamination.

Preservative Efficacy Testing

Once you’re happy with the product formulation sample we’ve created, we’ll test the sample, by sending it to an external microbiological facility for Preservative Efficacy Testing. In a controlled laboratory environment they’ll test it to ensure that the chosen preservative ingredients provide protection against any potential contaminants. Generally, most products pass this testing process and we move on to the next phase, stability testing.

Stability Testing

Longevity of your products is important to both you and your customers. How long will your product last? What is the shelf life? Many overseas jurisdictions insist on a proven minimum shelf life for cosmetic products. So how do you know what the potential shelf life of your product is? In order to test this before a product goes to market, we must use real-time accelerated stability testing.

Basically, sample products are put through controlled temperature variations over a twelve-week period. If the product holds up and does not undergo change to colour, viscosity and smell, then it’s usually deemed to have passed stability testing with an indicative shelf life of up to 18 months.

Micro Testing

All products manufactured at our facility are sent out for micro-testing to an independent microbiological laboratory, after compounding and before filling and then again after filling into your packaging, to ensure that there has been no contamination and that your product quality is consistent throughout the manufacturing process.

Switching Manufacturers
