As a contract manufacturer of skincare products, AUS Cosmetics considers it important to test the manufacturing methods and product formulations provided by the companies they deal with prior to getting involved in the mass manufacture of the product. Having got the data from your company, they conduct the required tests in their laboratory to get the trustworthy results. They may also send a product sample they will avail after the series of lab experiments to their contractors for further evaluation.
To make the products working, it’s essential to get reliable, powerful and lab tested formulas provided by a company responsible for their development. This is where the help of an experienced and knowledgeable formulation chemist may be required. The ASCC website offers the list of reliable formulators at their website. As soon as the formula is developed and lab tested, the product can be put into mass manufacture to be further released to the market. The importance of this step should not be underestimated, because low quality of skincare products may have negative effect upon your company reputation.

To prevent the risks associated with formulation problems, formulators can make use of the following tests:
- a preservative efficacy test
- a stability test
The first type of a test is needed to make sure the preservatives selected for a certain product work well when protecting it from the spread of bacteria, fungi and mould. If any of these problems are detected, the product may be recalled from the manufacture.
The second test type implies the choice of the right product packaging. This step should be preliminary discussed and coordinated with a formulator, laboratory responsible for conducting the test and a supplier of packaging materials.
Both tests are not free, of course, but additional financial investments are important here and worth the result. In many cases, they help detect various problems associated with the formulation or packaging, thus minimizing or avoiding corresponding risks.
Another way to protect your business from failures is to insure the product after its manufacture. As soon as the formula is thoroughly tested and the product is ready to be spread in the market, you may ask a company for a free quote. The range of products that can be insured before being introduced at the market is extensive and enlists the following:
- Hair care products
- Body care solutions
- Skin care options
- Facial care products etc.

The process of cosmetic manufacturing is responsible, time taking and complex. It involves the following stages:
- Product formulation
- Fill and pack
- Store and dispatch
Each stage involves certain steps, which follow each other and eventually trigger the expected result. Thus, the major objective of the formulation stage is to make sure that the quality, properties, texture, color, aroma and the look of the product correspond to its efficacy and adhere to the needs of customers. During this stage, a series of tests are held in a laboratory to check whether the product is ready for the manufacture. The major tests held on this stage are microbiological, preservative efficacy and stability tests.
Right after the product is tested in a lab, it can be put into manufacture. AUS Cosmetics experts know how quickly the manufacturing techniques change nowadays. That is why, they try their best effort to keep up with modern innovations and techniques. By traveling the world and exploring the market, they find out new technologies that are used by the global cosmetic manufacturers and implement them into the manufacturing process.
The manufacture stage is then followed by the filling and packing procedure. On this stage, newly manufactured products are packed into versatile containers, the choice of which is done with regard to the type of the product, its storage properties and characteristics. The most widely used packaging materials include:
- jars etc.
As soon as the product is packed, it is placed into carton boxes for safe storage and better maintenance. This stage is also done and supervised by the specialists of the company, whose task is to make sure that the products are ready for further store and dispatch procedures.
