Our range of services extends from conceptualisation to the commercialisation of finished products :

From Idea to Project

This phase of reflection and macro analysis of your idea and/or marketing brief is crucial before delving into the heart of the product development process. Benefit from our expertise to guide you effectively right from the start.

Now is the time to assess, among other things :

  • The technical feasibility of the envisioned product

  • The economic viability of the project concerning the target price vs. the industrial cost price

  • The target market launch date to build a detailed timeline

At this stage, it's essential to carefully define certain parameters :

  • Desired marketing claims

  • Key active ingredients and raw materials highlighted

  • Product benchmarks and positioning

  • Primary and secondary packaging choices"

Feasibility & Viability Analysis

Once all these points are well-established, we will then assist you in finalising the Marketing Brief, drafting the Specifications, launching Requests for Proposals, and selecting subcontractors and industrial partners.

At the Heart of the Product

An excellent cosmetic product is primarily based on an exceptional formula, combining proven effectiveness, delightful sensory texture, and a unique hedonistic pleasure. We will meet your highest expectations.

To achieve this, good pre-formulation work is essential :

  • Source and select raw materials

  • Define the appropriate fragrance composition

  • Define the expected sensory properties

Formulation, a critical phase of the project :

Packaging is far from secondary :

A beautiful packaging is good, but industrialisable is better :
