WHAT KINDS OF EXTRACTS DO YOU USE?


We love being plant-based and we use Fruit & Plant Extracts in our formulations. We have the ability to use Lab Created ingredients in your formulas also.

We use Certified Organic ingredients as well as conventional plant based ingredients. Sourcing is part of our core values and we seek the freshest cold pressed plants oils and butters. Our partner farm is USDA Certified Organic.

HOW MUCH DOES EACH PRODUCT COST? 


We can give you an estimated ball park figure before we get to the formulation stage. Also, you can request what price point you’d like and we take that into account while we are formulating. We consider parameters like packaging, quantity, raw materials sourcing, etc. when pricing your products.  A ballpark figure is up to $4 to $15 per product piece and more depending on product specifications.


HOW DO WE GET THE PROCESS STARTED?


We need a completed PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT REQUEST FORM from you which includes information like your intended packaging, your formulation requirements (ie organic, etc), order quantity, retail price range, performance requirement (ie hydrating, sealing, protective etc), graphics, bar codes (if any), to name a few.

When we start, we will send you the REQUEST to complete to gather necessary information.


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR ME TO BUY THE FORMULATION & OWN IT EXCLUSIVELY?


The typical fee is $6000 US per Formula. We can give you an estimate after initial formulation.  The final cost is determined by research, performance, innovation, and technology. 


WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR INGREDIENTS FROM?


We source ingredients locally, regionally, domestically and globally. We try to stay as close to the farmer as possible for the majority of our sourcing when possible. We often purchase direct from farmers at farmers markets also. Some ingredients we use are not available locally or domestically. We still try to source as close to the farmer as possible. We are happy to formulate your products using only local or regional resources if desired.


CAN I RETURN CUSTOM PRODUCTS?


Custom products are non-refundable.


DO YOU HAVE SAMPLES?


We have some samples available for purchase in a small quantity. All color cosmetics are custom and color samples are $300 per color.
