    I have been formulating all types of cosmetic products, with almost 20 years in the industry. Most recently, most of my products have been in the natural space, although I have also done FMCG and traditional products.
    Although I am based in New Zealand I do travel to various shows around the world. I also have Australian customers who I have not met yet but we have communicated through email, Whatsapp and Zoom.

    I recently presented a webinar on Stability Testing and the link can be found below.

    Each product innovation is composed of scores of ingredients, implying a precise management of raw materials. Raw materials and active ingredients are just one step of the successful development of a product and its continued development. Product characteristics s http:// uch as allergens and claims must be kept up to date. We want to help make your product, and your brand, stand out from the crowd and, ultimately, convert your target demographic to become loyal brand followers.
