  • Hi! Where are you located? That may be helpful to finding a formulator.

    Formulation should be fairly straightforward, but you do need to look at your Business Plan before proceeding. (No offense, it is an issue I have dealt with many times).
    • What is your Sales strategy? Selling even at multiple salons will not likely be able to move the number of retail pieces manufacturers will require.
    • What is your budget? No need to elaborate here, but as your develop your Business plan you will need to approximate these costs. As an emerging line, you will likely not see any volume discounts on materials or manufacturing.
    A Cosmetic line will succeed to a large extent due to proven Business practices. Working with a Formulator will help to get product, but you must remember that sales/marketing will be where you need to concentrate. A mediocre product with a cohesive sales strategy will in most cases out perform stellar product with so-so marketing.
