FORMULATION SERVICE FAQ
How long does the process of creating a custom formulation take?
While the whole process takes on average 3 months, you’ll receive the first sample within 3/4 weeks from the date you order it.
The first step is to discuss TOGETHER the ingredient list.
After that, I will put together a preliminary ingredients list for your revision. Once confirmed, we are all set! I will take care of ordering all the raw materials I need (at no additional cost for you) and create the first prototype.
After you receive the sample, you can either approve it (:)) or request a modification.
You have 2 revisions included in the lab fee.
Want to launch within 3 months? No problem, we accept rush orders for an additional fee.
What does your fee include?

Absolutely. I’ve been doing this for years now and even found great natural replacements for synthesis ingredients. Contact me for more details.
