How We Work

Manufacturing for
your peace of mind
As your co-manufacturing partner in beauty and personal care products, SV Labs is driven by the desire to make clean and sustainable products that elevate your business to new heights.

Product Creation Process

Whether you decide to build on one of our existing base chassis or you already have a product formula in mind, a dedicated SV Labs team is ready to support you. We can also create a brand-new product together from scratch or custom brand a ready-made concept from our in-house team. We can move fast to ensure we meet your timeline:

  1. Ideation and
    Concept Development

    Share your idea with us and your SV account manager will help you transform it into a complete product concept. He or she will then guide your project through the R&D process.

  2. Sample Production

    Our experienced chemists formulate your new product, taking it through as many iterations as needed to create a product sample that meets your expectations and quality standards.

  3. Formula Approval and Testing

    Once the formulation is approved, our lab team supports you with various testing protocols such as Stability, PET, RIPT and more.

  4. Pilot and Ramp-Up to Full Scale Production

    SV’s scale-up team adjusts the formula and processing parameters to ensure your product meets the correct specification when being produced in larger volumes.

  5. Launch!

    Development projects range from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on your timeline and our lab availability, as well as your assigned testing needs.

Clean Beauty with Exceptional Quality Standards

Being based in California, we are required to follow state legislation on product safety and sustainability. That’s no big deal for us since we’ve been prioritizing clean beauty and sustainability since long before it was necessary, or cool!
At SV Labs, we focus on our relationship with the environment. From energy saving designs in production to recycling programs, clean beauty is our passion.
