Our Cosmetic Chemistry Process: What You Need to Know

Cosmetic chemistry is a detailed process that takes time, communication, and patience. Formulating a product may take a few tries to get things just right. Below is everything you need to know about our extensive cosmetic chemistry process:

Our Process Takes Time

The first step in creating your formula is filling out your contact form and scheduling a discovery call with us. Once we've signed a non-disclosure agreement, verified your first payment, and gathered every detail about the project, you'll receive your first formula sample in the mail roughly three weeks later.

If you're not entirely satisfied with the sample, we're happy to re-test and reformulate until we get it just right. Our team works to the best of its ability to get your formulation to you as quickly as possible. We value quick turnarounds without compromising any quality.

Our Process Differs for Every Product

At Freelance Formulations, we work with all kinds of products. Although we specialize in beauty and health products, we've created a wide variety of formulas for aromatherapy, baby care, men's grooming, cleaning products, and more.

Each unique product comes with its own unique formula. Our chemists use a top-notch blend of ingredients to help you achieve the results you desire. Our formulation service is totally custom to you. All of our client formulas can be organic and all natural, vegan/plant-based, FDA approved, and cruelty free.

If you're looking for a faster way to get your hands on some products, we offer 40+ stock formulas. Stock formulas are a great option for customers looking to speed up the process and save money along the way. All of our stock formulas are created using high-quality ingredients. Many of them are based on popular beauty products on the market. You can take a stock formula to the manufacturer of your choice and quickly get your products made.

Our Process Teaches You New Things

Cosmetic chemistry is a science, which means it's constantly evolving and improving. In order to best serve your target audience, you'll need to know exactly what you're looking to get out of your formula.

Even when you've narrowed down your ideas and thoughts for a single product, be open to possible changes. Our expert chemists are well-versed in cosmetic chemistry and may recommend modified recipes you can trust.

Freelance Formulations values constant learning and expanding skill sets. Anytime during the product development cycle, you're welcome to sign up for our five-week DECCAS consultation program. This program can help determine exactly where you are in your product development process and will take you one step closer to bringing your product to market.
