Testing, Claim Substantiation & Regulatory Review:
During the entire journey of formulation development, testing at various stages is extremely critical. At ARETE Labs we have an in-house testing facility for stability & compatibility testing, and we can also conduct any Physical, Chemical & Analytical testing. From Micro & PET testing to specialised Dermatological testing, ARETE Labs and our network of leading local & global testing partners can seamlessly manage all your testing requirements. ARETE Labs offers state of the art claim substantiation through instrumentation studies for skincare and hair care formulations. Our testing helps ensure confidence in our formulations and assists with on-pack product claims.
ARETE Labs can be your trusted regulatory partner to ensure compliance of raw materials in different markets and assisting in registering the product
Strategic sourcing of raw materials
ARETE Labs has a global network of suppliers to source the most innovative raw materials at a great price. We can source premium raw materials with clinical studies to support your product claims.
We not only create a breakthrough formulation but also ensure that the product is within your cost requirements. We provide effective lead times & choice of alternative sources to suit your production quantities.
Pilot Batches, manufacturing assistance & production supervision
The personal care industry is pivoting towards smaller & fresher batches as consumers demand products that aren't mass-produced and don't have excessive amounts of preservatives. At our state-of-art pilot facility, we can blend smaller & fresher batches (5-50 kg) that give brands the flexibility to capitalize on the latest trends and ingredients.
We will help you find a suitable contract manufacturer based on the product and desired quantities. Our hands-on guidance would enable a successful production. Our upscaling and production expertise has enabled us to get “THE BATCH RIGHT FIRST TIME” for all of our projects.
