ANR-LogoWhether you’re looking to create a brand new product line of personal care products, or have an idea for one product, we can help make your personal care ideas become a reality.  We can custom manufacture your brand of hair, skin, bath and pet care products.  The process is really much easier than you think.  At least for you it is.  The hardest part of the entire process is that you need to come up with a viable idea, decide on the demographic to target, and decide the best way to bring the product to market.

The easiest way to begin this process is to contact us and discuss your vision.

This discovery phase allows us to review your strategy including target markets and products as well as branding with “star” ingredients incorporated across your entire product line. If there are similar products, currently in the marketplace, that you would like to use as a benchmark, provide us samples of those products with the list of ingredients. If you have an actual formula, with percentages of ingredients, we can produce your product. Providing a target cost in this phase will also help us create appropriate formulas based on your budget.

Our Research & Development Lab will then go to work on new formulas, replicating or modifying your existing formula according to your directive.  Any requested custom ingredients incorporated into your products can either be sourced by us or customer provided.  This includes custom fragrance.  Our lab will render samples of each product for you, and your colleagues, to try.  Based on your input and direction, if modifications are necessary, we can re-direct the formulas accordingly.

While your samples are being developed, you should be thinking about your packaging and making sure to select appropriate containers to properly dispense each product.  Our team can refer you to an appropriate packaging vendor where you will be able to research container options available to you as well as decide on the size of your containers.  You will also need to decide whether your containers will be printed or whether you prefer labels to be applied to each container.  We can review your artwork to ensure the proper labeling of your products .  Once you’ve selected the containers, decided on the case pack, and any other packaging requirements, you will need to decide whether you want to purchase these containers yourself, or have us purchase them on your behalf, providing you with a full turnkey service.

Once we have approved formulas and the packaging has been determined, we can provide you with a formal price quotation.  We have minimum batch size requirements and a proposal will be provided based on fill weights and the number of units the batch will yield of each product. All products are highly recommended to undergo PET (Preservative Effectiveness Testing) and 90 day stability testing.  This will help to ensure that your products have at least a 2 year shelf life, if stored under proper conditions.

Once a Purchase Order has been placed, and samples of actual components are received, a smaller pilot batch will be manufactured to generate product for recommended product testing, provide you with pre-market samples and validate production scalability. Once they have passed these tests and you approve we can proceed with an actual order production.

When we receive all of your components, packaging and raw materials in-house, we are now ready to fill your production order.  Our Quality Control Department will inspect the components when they arrive to ensure they are correct, clean and not damaged.  It generally takes 6 to 8 weeks to complete an order, depending on the order quantity and how many products you are ordering.  We will ship products to your designated address for storage and you are now ready to bring your products to market!
