Custom Product Formulation​

Are you interested in creating a unique product formula that truly represents your brand? If so, we are pleased to offer our expertise and manufacturing capabilities to develop a custom formula that meets your specific needs. Let us help you bring your vision to life with our professional services.

Custom Formula & Modifications

CLC provides a service to add an ingredient to a current formula or to create a custom formula. All formula modifications will require a consultation with our Formulator. Consultations are $149.99 and are mandatory for all formulas that a customer requires us to add an ingredient to a current formula or inquiring about a custom formula. Each consultation is  booked for 1 hour. If you decide to move forward with a custom formula this consultation fee is credited back to the custom invoice. 

The launch of a cosmetic brand can be a costly undertaking, and advertising plays a pivotal role in ensuring its success. Therefore, we advise allocating 50% of your capital towards your product launch. At CLC, we believe in empowering brand owners by providing them with the knowledge they need to develop a reputable and profitable brand. Our consultant will discuss this in detail with you during the phone consultation for all formula modifications and custom formulas.

At CLC, we typically advise our clients to leverage our stock formula and make necessary modifications. Doing so enables you to take advantage of our clinically tested formulas and add 1-2 ingredients to personalize the product. It's important to note that while you will have a unique product, you will not own the rights to the formula. The cost of incorporating each ingredient typically amounts to around $99, plus the cost of the ingredient itself, and is in addition to the consultation fee of $125.00. We have access to a wide range of ingredients, but we may recommend that you source specific ingredients and send them to us to minimize costs.

Developing custom formulas is a process that requires significant time and effort. It can take several weeks to months to create, as it involves third-party real-time or accelerated stability tests and shelf life tests for ingredient compatibility.

Our fees for R&D services vary depending on the type of product:

  • Cosmetics (Non-Regulated): $1,500 - $2,999.99
  • NNHP (NPN) Product Design & Registration: $2,999 - $4,999.99

Our R&D fees provide comprehensive access to our team of chemists, procurement specialists, and project managers. The service includes feasibility studies, preservative challenge testing, stability assessments, and PH and component compatibility to ensure your product's optimal success in the market.

We create new formulas for finished cosmetic products based on your specific requirements, including theoretical work and production of samples. We can also create formulas based on an existing benchmark product, although we do not perform full reverse engineering. Pricing depends on the complexity and time requirements for creating the formula. Once you complete the form below, we will provide you with a detailed price quote.

Our product offerings include a wide range of skin care items, such as creams, lotions, masks, shower gels, hand sanitizers (NPN approved), butters, cleansers, toners, and scrubs/peels. Additionally, we offer hair care products, including shampoos, conditioners, and hair styling products like hair gels and pomades.

Our selection also includes home products, such as reed diffuser oils, fragrance bases, and essential oil blends and customizations. For outdoor enthusiasts, we offer insect relief products (excluding pest control products).

We are proud to offer NPN approved products that contain Health Canada site-licensed ingredients, including sunscreen.
