We specialize in formulating color cosmetics for face & body

Our Custom Cosmetics Formulating service provides a reliable and professional cosmetic scientist who can help with any type of skincare formulating. Our expert has a wealth of experience in the cosmetics industry and can provide surefire formulas to transform your ideas into a profitable reality.

You're getting:

  • A safe, stable, profitable, and high performance custom cosmetic formula that you individually own and have the rights to produce as you choose
  • A cosmetic scientist developing your formula in a small fraction of the time and cost that it would take for you to study, research, develop, test, validate, and create a repeatable procedure for a safe stable high performance product on your own
  • A detailed instruction manual on how to manufacture your high quality small-batch formula yourself and/or with your team
  • High design packaging ideas to give your product prestige brand status
  • The latitude to create additional variations of your product as you determine
  • The option to scale your product with high volume manufacturers (they will Invoice you for additional lab fees to adjust your formula to their equipment, however, you still always have the small batch formula that you own)

Makeup & Skincare formulating only takes about 18 to 24 months; the benefits can last for generations

  • More complex formulations can take up to 5 years and more
  • Immediately after purchasing your Custom Formulating lab fees, we will send your Formulating Agreement for signature (required)
  • Each requestor can secure 1 product (SKU) formula per calendar year; this exclusive Service has limited availability and we work with just a few companies at a time
  • You can submit your Custom Cosmetics Formulating lab fees here on our website; there are various online payment options available
  • Alternatively, we are happy to send you an Invoice for $4000 US to begin the process, then a second Invoice of $4000 when our in-Lab testing is completed (in approximately 4 to 8 months and longer), and the third $4000 when your final formula is complete and your SOP documents are ready to send (in about month 12 to 24 and longer)
  • Please send us a message to request an Invoice be sent to your company email address
  • Upon discussion & a signed agreement, formulas that include rare and/or complicated to source ingredients and carry additional complexity of methodology & production will receive additional Invoicing
  • Cosmetics formulated by Dirty Beauty are suitable for manufacture & sale only in the United States
  • To get started, we'll request information about your product formula via email.  Please check your Inbox & SPAM folder, if necessary, in 1 to 3 business days
