Once you are ready to begin the process, we will have you fill out an AMR New Customer Profile. AMR will use this profile to get to know more about you and your brand. We will also have you fill out a New Product Profile for each product you want to make. This detailed questionnaire covers all aspects of your formula from color and fragrance to viscosity, performance, and budget. The more detailed the answers are, the faster the formulation process moves forward.
Using the latest in cosmetic chemistry innovation, our chemists create a formula that reflects the information in the New Product Profile provided. A bench sample within your budget is created and given to you to test. After reviewing the first sample, we ask for feedback and begin to adjust the formula based off your comments.
Once you have approved the formula, we will begin the Stability and Compatibility Testing. This 3 month period will test the stability of the formula and compatibility with your packaging. Samples of finalized packaging are required for the test to be precise. If you wish to bypass Stability and Compatibility Testing, we require you to sign a waiver but will continue to run testing concurrently with your first production run.
Labeling and Packaging
We recommend scheduling an appointment to visit our showroom, which features over 100 packaging samples in different options from various vendors for packaging inspiration. AMR can refer companies to carry out your design, labels and screen printing, packaging, secondary packaging (boxes, bags, etc.). Samples of your final approved packaging will be required for Stability & Compatibility Testing.
Once you have finalized your packaging, you will place orders with the companies and have them shipped directly to our warehouse. We will warehouse packaging for products that have pending orders or have established a pattern with order history.
Production & Filling
After the completion and the QC checks of the bulk product, we will begin to fill your containers. Our filling capacity ranges from small 0.5ml sample sachets to 2 gallon sizes and more. Your product will be filled, capped, labeled, coded and sealed all in one line. After filling is completed, we will run a QC check again while putting the products into any secondary packaging (if applicable.) Your products will be packaged into case boxes and labeled for easy identification.
Your distributors may require you to ship products to multiple distribution centers. We can arrange the shipment of your products to multiple distribution centers, providing you with the proper paperwork to present to your distributor.
Products being shipped overseas will be sent through any of the various ports local to our offices including the Los Angeles Port and Long Beach Port.
