Companies and individuals with more established customers, get finished products fulfilled in our facility. Whether it's product design, ramping up inventory....or able to deliver larger orders; all are possible.
Aquatech can help you reach the next level in your product cycle and development. Our Private Label Service can simplify your inventory issues, and help free up time for you to concentrate on building your business.
Almost all companies that require us to make their product, typically have established sales and clientele. We can batch, fill and complete a whole line of items. Most start with one or two products…as they are popular and can’t keep it on the shelf.
There are a number of different ways to do Private label with us.
Fill and cap one of our products (possibly with a scent) then label and lot code
A slightly modified formulation with extracts or actives, then fill, cap, label and lot code
More elaborate and complicated is a new formulation. Includes alternate ingredients, extracts and actives. Fill, cap, label and lot code.
Each level involves more lab time, extra bench testing and longer to develop. Minimums are higher and there are lab time expenses involved.
Completely new formulations are proprietary to us, (strictly exclusive to you) and can be purchased at a later date if necessary.
Reverse engineering an existing product from another company requires research and development. A formulation could take a while to design in order to emulate the feel and function. A great way to catch your reader's attention is to tell a story.
Depending on what size bottle you pick, will determine how many pieces for a batch.
- 2oz/60ml Bottle 1500 pieces
- 4oz/120ml Bottle 1000 pieces
- 8oz/240ml Bottle 750 pieces
- 16oz Bottle 500 pieces.
Sorry, at this time, these batches are one type only.
We have several Sample Sets available which allow you to try our products. With a little imagination, you can sense how your product will feel and perform. You could add a little fragrance and color to customize and make these your own.
If there are additions or substitutions, we would need the lab to make samples Those that are doing a "ground up" formulation, there will be development fees and lab time with samples sent as the project moves along. Both would require stability tests and time for testing.
Please note: Custom lab products, whether "altered" or "ground up" would need minimum order quantites...typically 100 kg or 25 gallons upon ordering.
Lets assume you have approved the sample, artwork has gone to the printer (which has been approved) and the bottle, cap, and fragrance has been ordered. Once everything has arrived at our facility...around 3-4 weeks.
Those that have new products or more elaborate formulations, it could be months. Samples in the incubator accelerates time, this tells us how it will endure on the shelf over time. Stability uses a higher temperature for a period of 1 month, which is equal to 1 year on the shelf... ultimately we would like to keep it for 2 months. If it separates or breaks, that pushes us back to the development stage. Give yourself time, with an average of 12 weeks. Possibly more now, as the supply chains are erratic.
Our customers in the past chose what we had. Over time, the requests for various types components made it difficult to stock and control. The pandemic has put lots of demand on the supply chain and at this point, decided to not carry and sit on any. At this time, there are a very limited supply of bottles, caps, pumps and sprayers, We request you have them sent to us. It might seem like more work...but you can source them; then when ordering, have the "bill to" under your name and the "ship to" would be Aquatech. This would be a straight cost to you and would not involve any markup on these components. We do stock a number of jars.
We are a skin care manufacturer and do not print labels. Most people find a label company that is fairly close to where they operate, as they want to have control over the production quality. Many have graphic artists on site that can correct images and prepare the file for a proof.
Sunshine and ultraviolet light is your hidden enemy. The labels are protected for UVA and UVB light spectrums, which make the ink resistant to fading. This overcoat also offers a gloss appearance and additional protection from scratching and scuffing.
We send them back to you on the first order. If you order labels again you are required to send the labels back to us.
Each product is case packed and sent in either 12, 24 or 48 pieces, depending on the size selected. Shipping is not included. We will not "drop ship", meaning we will not send this to your customer. This is for your protection. This also eliminates any possible damage claims or liability over faulty addresses, unspecified instructions, personal agreements and related concerns over client confidentiality. We want to keep variables down to a minimum, reduce complications and make execution simple.
Sure ...doing it yourself is perfect for testing the market, limited runs, not knowing when sales will occur, or have doubts about the look and layout of the final product. We offer a variety of suggestions for fairly professional results. Whether inkjet, laser or digital... you should take the same precautions for bad grammar, punctuation, sloppy presentation or omissions as with professional printing. When it comes to impression, nothing can be left to chance.
