Everything starts with an idea... and we like to get ours down on paper before we do anything else.
Whether the genesis of the idea comes from you or from our team, we'll first do a competitive market analysis or take a look at market trends and only then will we take a first pass at capturing the shape, form and function of the product or package in question. We're strong believers that innovation can be found in the most unlikely of places. This is the stage where we do a lot of our research and development.
Once a design direction is chosen we dive into the technical modeling and engineering. We work closely with our overseas product team to make sure our drawings reflect tooling and manufacturing parameters and ensure that as amendments are made to files we maintain production ready accuracy throughout.
We are your brand custodians. We understand what it takes to build a brand and we work hard to maintain the standards you've developed. But we're also here to push the artistic boundaries to help your product tell its story. We aim to maximize on-shelf or e-commerce impact, bring clarity to brand messaging and ultimately to make your product stand out from your competition.
Using state-of-the-art 3D rendering software and prototyping machinery, we can provide realistic representations of your product and physical molded samples before you pull the production trigger. This is where you explore color choices, play with graphics and confirm every technical detail of your product package - and save both time and money in the process.
Combining insightful marketing research with creative product development, we are able to develop exciting new formulas for a comprehensive range of skincare, personal care and color cosmetics. Our offerings include a wide range of formulas from FDA Cosmetic Grade to OTC. We work closely with retailers to fully understand their natural and clean ingredient guidelines and are compliant with Consciously Natural and COSMOS certifications.
Formulas are a critical part of our business, so we offer a suite of testing and validation services including Formula Stability, Package Compatibility, Preservative Efficacy testing & RIPT, in addition to all other FDA and OTC testing.
Choose from one of our stock formulas, or our in-house team can help you develop something uniquely custom. We create cosmetic as well as OTC formulas for some of today’s leading skin, body, hair and fragrance brands and for some we also manage the blending and filling as well. We work with several facilities across the US and overseas and operate a second layer of QA and QC procedures to guarantee quality.
