INGREDIENTS

Ingredients are the heart and soul of any product, and sourcing the right ones is key to a successful brand or product launch.  As the world of natural beauty products grows exponentially, the demand for natural, organic, sustainably grown, and ethically farmed ingredients is growing fast as well.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

  • Similar to formulation and packaging, brand founders can source their own ingredients individually from various ingredient suppliers or work with a contract manufacturer or formulator that has access to a library of ingredients in their lab or can help source ones they don’t have.

  • Understanding the specifics of how to formulate with each ingredient in terms of temperature, solubility, contraindications, and effect on other ingredients in the formula are all key considerations in choosing the right ingredients for your formula.

  • Knowing where the raw ingredients are derived from is also a key factor to consider in your sourcing process.

  • Plan ahead and be cognizant that weather, labor, natural disasters, pandemics and other external forces can affect supply of natural ingredients, especially ones that are unique and not readily available.  Have a plan B for every ingredient.

  • The more scarce and unique the ingredient and the more environmentally friendly, the higher the price.

  • Most suppliers offer a wide range of quantities you can purchase, from several ounces to gallons and drums.

TYPICAL DELIVABLES

  • Raw Ingredients—The raw materials that, when combined with other ingredients, make up a product’s formula.

  • Formulas—Some ingredient suppliers also have stock formulas for various products which you can get access to.

  • Formulations Services—Some suppliers can also develop your unique formula.


Before you embark on souring your ingredients, speak to your formulators and contract manufacturers to see if you can take advantage of their existing relationships.
