  • Ethnic natural hair chemist needed

    Posted by Anonymous on March 8, 2016 at 5:46 am

    I have been trying to start a natural hair product like for ethnic hair but have ran into a few hurdles. One thing is that when I reach out to labs they only take formulas which I don’t have. I have found only a few private label companies and now I have sample of a few products. I am looking for a chemist who can help me create formulas with this list and products to start the line. Does anyone know of any chemist that would be good for ethnic hair products? Generally how much would it cost to find the formula of a product if you have samples and a list? Thank you for any help.

    @bobbydigital Once you have your formulations complete how many units of each product will you produce initially?

    Chicago is the Silicon Valley of ethnic (read: African-American) hair and skin care, in case you did not know already. I’ll second Uyi Wogherin. If you need manufacturing - or a second opinion - contact me through this blog.

    I am not sure how many units I will need of each yet. Do you manufacture DavidW? What is your product minimum? 

    Chemicalmatt: I was not aware of that. thank you for that information. I will try to see if I can come up with anything in the Chicago area.
    Perry and ChemicalMatt: Thank you I will try to make contact. 
    Cosdev: I went through some emails but I could never get a response with a phone call to continue forward with getting more information.

    The society of cosmetic chemists.  http://midwestscc.org

    In fact, there is a free trade show coming up in April called Teamworks. Every company that is any company in the cosmetic industry in Chicago will be there.
