Custom Product Formulation

Want to create your own unique product formula for your brand? At Cosmetic Labs Canada, we private label our own products, but if you are interested in developing your own custom formula, we have the capability to manufacture custom formulas.

Is a Custom Product Formula right for me? 

Existing Formula Modifications

Formula Modifications can be as little as $99.99 to ADD an ingredient to an existing formula. This provides a great alternative to someone who does not want to use the exact stock formula available on our website and create brand uniqueness. 

Custom Formula

Are you looking for a completely new formula, Research and Development is the most important step. This is best for larger production runs. 

Depending on the product type the cost is between $1800 – $50000 per product. This is for R&D, Stability, and Health Canada Submission for the client. This does not include design, production of the product itself, or packaging. 

A minimum of 50 Gallons is required for Body Care  Approximately 800 Bottle @ 8 oz 

A minimum of 15 Gallons is required for Face Care = Approximately 960 bottles @ 2 oz 

This requires a lead time of about 3-5 weeks from the date of confirmed changes.

Our R&D fees provides:

- full access to our R&D chemists

- our procurement team

- a dedicated project manager

- a feasibility study

- preservative challenge testing

- stability assessment

- PH and component compatibility to assure your product’s best chances for success in the market

This service includes the creation of a new formula for a finished cosmetic product based on your needs and wishes. It includes theoretical work but also the production of samples. We may also recreate a formula based on an existing benchmark product, but we don’t fully reverse engineer a product but instead formulate a product with similar properties. Pricing depends on the type of product and the complexity and time requirements to create a formula. Upon completing the form below you will get a detailed price quote.
