    Hi there,

    I’m in the process of starting a natural hair care line for curly hair in the Netherlands and I’m at the stage where I’m deciding whether or not I should go down the private label route or if I’m better off working with a chemist for formulation and manufacturer. Also cost-wise what is wisest?

    Does anyone know of a (good) European private label company who offer the chance to make changes to existing formulas? I would also appreciate any recommendations for formula development and small manufacturers who will make low initial runs. 

    Any other advise would be greatly appreciated as I’m feeling quite lost in this process.

    Thank you!
