I did attempt a search, but with little luck. So will pose my queries here, and I realise that these have been probbaly asked many times previously.
I have a lot of requests for my formulation services, and now have worked for a few brands. Now at a point to determine if I am charging appropriate fees. My questioins are:
(1) What is an average fee to prepare a simle formulation?
(2) Is there are standard contract?
(3) Who owns the formuation? How is the ownership generally handled?
(4) What is the general protocol for preparing samples to be evaluated by customers? I usually allow for three re-formulations within my current fee structure.
