I need the assistance of a formulator - prefer one with some PL contacts...  GELS, GELS, GELS!!  Must be an expert with gels... water based, solvent based and anhydrous. Novel products, nothing to copy off the shelf, so I need an innovative thinker.  BTW..... GEL not Creams... lol

Fire away any contacts :-) 

Thank You!


  • I'm not quite sure what you mean by PL. But today's your lucky day! Pretty much everyone in this forum can help you make gels. Take your pick.

    PL = Private label.

    Are you talking hair gels?

    Private Label has a specific meaning in the cosmetic/personal care industry - it means taking an already developed and tested product, and putting your own (private) label on it. Typically, no customization is allowed, and there is no exclusivity. The company I work for, Beaumont Products, does a fair amount of this type of work.

    It sounds like you are looking for a service called Contract Manufacturing, which is where you give your own formula to a manufacturer, and they make it for you.

  • Hi hishine,

    If you are interested in novel cellulosic gels, we could definitely help you. We have the co-inventor of HPMC and co-author of 20 patents involving cellulose derivatives on staff here.

    See if Mark @ can help you.  He is very good. 

    Also BobZchemist may be able to help.  Both are on the forum.

    Do you mean gel as in nail polish? I suppose PL = Esstech? 

    Try to contact Lou Palermo at He is one of the upper management people at Esstech. He will kindly help you with samples too.
