Product Development Phases
Design of the whole concept and idea with the proposal of the active ingredients and the arrangement of the different products in the cosmetic line.
TIMING: 1 – 2 weeks
All products are developed in accordance with the organic cosmetics guidelines (Ecogea-Organic). If the product cannot be classified as organic for various reasons, the criteria for the standard for natural-organic or natural shall be considered. The exact percentage composition of the product is determined and laboratory samples are prepared in the formulation development process. The necessary parameters for the production of larger batches (temperature, mixing, homogenisation, etc.) are also determined. All products are developed on a predefined type of packaging, so it must be specified before development begins.
TIMING: 1 – 3 MONTHS
The product specification and the documentation of the product components (analysis reports, SDSs, etc.) are the basis for making the product safety assessment for cosmetic product. All cosmetic products on the EU market must be registered in the EU CPNP portal and have a cosmetic product safety report prepared in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009

TIMING: 1 – 2 WEEKS
Certifications for NATURAL or ORGANIC cosmetics or VEGAN,…
TIMING: depending on Certificate 1-3 months.
Certification must be carried out before finalisation and printing of labels.
Product performance testing (anti-aging, moisturizing, etc.) and dermatological tests are performed by several different laboratories. If the client opts for such tests (client cost), the contractor connects the client and the laboratories in EU.
Once all input ingredients are available at the production facility (all ingredients + packaging (primary & secondary (if exists) + labels + transport packaging) we usually produce products within a month time. The supply of input ingredients usually takes 4-8 weeks.
Thus total TIMING: 2 – 3 months.
