Are you a new/emerging skincare brand looking for a place to start and would like to outsource the manufacturing of your products to a company with a proven track record? Or perhaps you're a brand that's been around the block a bit and would like to hand some things over to free up some time and resources? You may also be a company that would like to source & sell natural skincare products.

We provide skincare manufacturing and formulation services for products covering an assortment of organic/natural skincare products. Simply put, we make products for other brands, tapping into our 10 years of experience in the natural skincare field, connections, resources, & suppliers that have taken many many hours to sift through, personally vet, & build, and our wide library of organic ingredients & tested formulations.

We offer:

  • Low minimums - No need to order hundreds or thousands of one product, which is typically cost-prohibitive for small brands.
  • Expertise - We have a decade of experience formulating organic skincare products, studying & practicing herbalism for topical use, as well as growing herbs using permaculture & organic practices. All these components inform our unique, vibrant, & effective plant-powered formulations.
  • Communication, integrity, & high standards - We value communication with our clients, aim to always work in integrity, and follow industry best practices, like Good Manufacturing Practices and defined Standard Operating Procedures.

This means we will be clear, detailed, and transparent with our clients through every step of the process of creating your product. Clients can trust that their formulations will be made with the best practices and quality as a foundation, and that they are getting exactly what is expected.

Our Services & Process

White Label - if you don't have a formulation/recipe in mind, we have plenty to offer. You can choose from our existing formulations to select what works best for your brand.

Examples of products available for White Label include:

Lip balms 
Herbal salves
Natural, aluminum-free deodorants
Face creams 
Facial toners
Facial serums
Facial cleansers 
Body cream
Body oils
Natural bugspray
Baby body care

Custom Formulation - we will work with your vision to develop a custom formulation for the natural skincare product of your dreams.

Contract Manufacturing - if you already have your formulation dialed in and want to hand over the reins to a company with the tools and expertise to manufacture it, this is the perfect option for you. We'll make your recipe exactly as you define, and you can trust that your product will be made with the same love and care you would infuse into it.

Quality Ingredients, Safe Formulations

All of our formulations are made using the following practices:

  • High-quality natural and certified organic ingredients whenever possible
  • Proper dilution of essential oils
  • Incorporating natural preservatives and emulsifiers where necessary (these ingredients are necessary to make a safe, effective water-containing product like a cream). We use natural preservatives & emulsifiers that meet the strict ECOCERT standards. Learn more about our use of natural preservatives and the reasoning behind their use here.
  • Clean, sanitary methods

Turnaround

White Label services tend to require 2-8 weeks turnaround.

Custom Formulation services tend to require 8-16 weeks turnaround.

Contract Manufacturing services tend to require 2-6 weeks turnaround.

We specialize in sustainable packaging, focusing on recyclable & biodegradable materials. Our primary packaging available to clients includes:

Packaging Sourcing/Support:

  • Biodegradable paperboard tubes - We can source these with low minimums, applying your custom design directly onto tube or offered blank at a lower rate for you to then apply your label to. They can house solid balms in paperboard push-up tubes like lip balms, salves, & deodorants, as well as powders in paperboard sifter tubes. This option can add anywhere from 4 weeks in turnaround (non-custom; blank tube) to 8-12 weeks in turnaround for custom designed packaging.
  • Glass jars & bottles (amber & clear) - Recyclable, accessible, and attractive.
  • Metal lids - more eco-friendly alternative to common plastic lids.

As noted above, this route for packaging will typically be associated with a longer project timeline and higher cost. The more custom you want packaging to be, the longer the timeline and likely the higher the associated cost. That said, since we source our containers like jars & bottles in bulk quantities, you may end up with a cost savings on this option.

Clients Provide Packaging:

This is going to typically be more affordable (to you) and quicker than if you have us source and provide packaging for you.

Clients may choose to source their own packaging and provide that for us. You would simply ship it to our address [disclosed upon contract]; we recommend you have it shipped directly from the supplier to our address to save shipping costs for you. If you would like our help selecting packaging outside of what we offer, please let us know, and be aware this will affect the timeline of delivery.

Creating New Labels:

We are happy to consult on creating labels for your product. We have a network of experts who specialize in copywriting for natural, herbal skincare products and in FDA labeling compliance. From working for some of the biggest names in the plant-centric product world to holding PhDs in their field, our experts boast swoon-worthy credentials when it comes to labeling products.

We advise clients to work with this network from inception of labeling to remove the mystery of what's okay to say on labels, as well as how to say it.

We are not graphic designers, but can advise clients on how to create their own labels using a variety of readily-available & affordable resources for indie brands.

We can also recommend graphic designers if clients are ready to make this investment in their brand.

Clients Providing Existing Labels:

Clients are welcome and encouraged to provide their own labels, either already applied on packaging that is provided to us, or shipped to our production warehouse to be labeled by us for an additional reasonable rate.
