Since every product is unique, our team of chemists will decide what preservatives will work best for your product. We avoid at all cost the use of parabens and sulfates in all our formulas and we use airless bottles only to extend to the max the life of your active ingredient. Additionally, we mainly use preservatives that meet two criteria:
listed on the Whole Foods Acceptable Premium Preservative List
Approved for use as an ingredient in Ecocert Certified Organic products
We assume that any product is for immediate use and will not be standing on a shelf for years. For that reason, we only recommend using the products within 3 to 6 months. Every label will include the manufacturing date and recommended used by date
Can I choose the Bottles?
Unfortunately no. All our bottles are preselected in order to maintain the product fresh and free of contaminants. For that, we only use airless bottles and jars
How do I know if the product is right for me?
We offer different sizes, we recommend ordering a travel size, which is 1/4 of oz, to try how your product works on your skin. However, We always recommend following your skincare specialist advice. You can book an appointment for a complete skincare evaluation, skin treatment, and product assessment.
How long does it take to process an order
Since it is a customized product, the time varies a lot. Typically take 2 weeks to complete an order. However, time also depends on some ingredients availability and testing; so processing time we will be between 2 to 6 weeks.
Note: Every sale on this website is a lab order, if for some reason the lab cannot process the order within the frame time of 2 to 6 weeks, we will cancel your order and return your money.

Yes, each fragrance has a certificate of analysis. That certificate is made by a specialized lab in the USA. You can ask for the certificate if it is not available for download on the website. Sometimes that certificate might have a cost.
Are the bases comedogenic (cause a breakout)
It is very hard to give a precise answer. Every skin is very different from another, some people might experience a break out due to the sensitivity of certain ingredients while others will not. In general, most oils are potentially comedogenic. If you are currently using creamy moisturizers, chances are low. However, please check the ingredients list in each base formula before you order it. we have a wide selection of bases to choose from. If you have doubts, you can order a bases sample pack that includes 4 bases travel size.

No, you will not own the formula, but you will own a product that you have created. A unique product for your unique skin.

Natural & Organic is a very blurry definition. We will specify if an ingredient holds organic certifications.

I would like to create a product with active ingredients not listed in the website :
We can help you create your order Just send us your request; however, keep in mind that we are cosmetics lab and not a private label company. different from private label companies we DO NOT massively produce any of our products. each product is unique. per FDA definition of cosmetics, NONE of active ingredients are considered a drug and
the statements contained in this website herein have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These actives are not intended to diagnose, treat and cure or prevent disease. Always consult with your professional skin care provider. We provide cosmetics data from cosmetics laboratories research ONLY.
FDA definition of cosmetics:
The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) defines cosmetics by their intended use, as "articles intended to be rubbed, poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body...for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance" [FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)]. Among the products included in this definition are skin moisturizers, perfumes, lipsticks, fingernail polishes, eye and facial makeup preparations, cleansing shampoos, permanent waves, hair colors, and deodorants, as well as any substance intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product.
How does the law define a drug?
The FD&C Act defines drugs, in part, by their intended use, as "articles intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease" and "articles (other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals" [FD&C Act, sec. 201(g)(1)].
How can a product be both a cosmetic and a drug?
Some products meet the definitions of both cosmetics and drugs. This may happen when a product has two intended uses. For example, a shampoo is a cosmetic because its intended use is to cleanse the hair. An antidandruff treatment is a drug because its intended use is to treat dandruff. Consequently, an antidandruff shampoo is both a cosmetic and a drug. Among other cosmetic/drug combinations are toothpastes that contain fluoride, deodorants that are also antiperspirants, and moisturizers and makeup marketed with sun-protection claims. Such products must comply with the requirements for both cosmetics and drugs.
What about "cosmeceuticals"?
The FD&C Act does not recognize any such category as "cosmeceuticals." A product can be a drug, a cosmetic, or a combination of both, but the term "cosmeceutical" has no meaning under the law.
