(004) A WOMAN'S VISION

For self-identifying women, we extend a 10% Discount on Custom Formulation and Product Development Services.

SMALL-BATCH MANUFACTURING

(001) MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY

We know that minimum orders can be a huge barrier to entry for many aspiring brands. Before committing to spending the time, money, and energy on a new product launch, we believe it's important to test your new product and get real-time feedback from the people who matter the most - your customers. Producing in small batches allows you to go to market in the shortest possible time with the least amount of risk. At 500 units, we offer the lowest in the industry. This allows you to accelerate your brand faster, more efficiently and with less risk.

*Exceptions apply.

(002) PRIVATE LABEL

You can launch your brand today by using one of our already made formulas. Private label skin care is not limited to aspiring entrepreneurs; doctors, spas, salon owners, and other businesses related to the beauty and skincare industry take advantage of this lucrative industry.

(003) SCALING

As your brand grows, we help you scale as high as needed with the support of our partners.

CLEAN LISTS

We personally believe that science and nature work better together. However, with industry trends and evolving consumer needs, the desire for clean formulations is at an all-time high. If you are looking to create a product that fits the clean standards of third-party retailers such as Sephora, Whole Foods, or Credo, we can help you with that.

*As clean standards change often, we can't guarantee that it will be clean forever.
