    Hello everyone!

    I need a cosmetic chemist to replicate some skincare products for me. If you know of anyone who is good at reverse engneering skincare products, please give me a nudge in the right direction.

    If you are a chemist and you think you can help me, please email me
    at victoria.wells@yandex.com or message me on here. In your message,
    please include:
    1. Your name
    2. Your geographical location
    3. Your qualification and experience in reverse engineering skincare products
    4. How you can help me with this project
    5. The type of lab equipments/facilities you can get access to

    For more info about what I need, please read the paragraphs below.

    Thank you in advance,

    Background info:
    I have been a skincare brand owner for almost 5 years. My brand consists
    of lotion, cream, toners, masks, serum and makeup remover. There are no
    color cosmetic in my line. My products were produced and created by my
    old manufacturer in California which has gone bankrupt recently. The managers at the old manufacturer did not disclose to me the recipes of my skincare products so I
    have to start all over again.

    About this job:

    Your mission is to replicate the skin care formula my old manufacturer made.
    I need the clone to be almost identical to my current product. Since this is my first time to use hire an external chemist, I
    want you to start with replicating one product first.

    Victoria ,

    I don’t think that you could do better than using Mark for formulating and David for manufacturing.

    Victoria, my business is manufacturing and filling topical products.  While we do provide development services we are really backed up right now.  Contact Mark, you will be happy you did. 

    Does Perry take on on independent projects?

    @DavidW - I listen to people’s requests and if it were the right project I might take it on, but mostly I forward projects to other cosmetic formulators.

    So what do you do to make a living?

    At the moment, I write for a few websites, instruct live courses on formulating, and my latest project.

    I guess I’m best described as a professional blogger.
