The success of your new product line demands the highest quality ingredients and advanced lab facilities to create your custom formulations.
At OBX, our team is devoted to ongoing research as a commitment to your success. Not only do we conduct comprehensive research for your product formulation, we also conduct ongoing research for our own breakthroughs of the latest ingredients and marketplace trends. You can rely on our research data, knowledge and expertise for the latest advances.
During the formulation stage, our chemists will gather information to fully understand your product and the intended benefits of your custom formulation. Our experienced chemists will help you select key ingredients to optimize your products for success.
Product Development includes testing each lab formula to ensure stability and compliance. We develop formulations based on the following:
- Custom formulation — customer concept without a prototype
- Reverse engineering — existing product with a prototype
- Highlighting new raw materials
- Formulation enhancement
Creating new products is a collaborative effort among our clients, formulators and raw material vendors.
The OBX product development staff meets regularly with raw material vendors, both domestic and international, to ensure we are on trend, and have the latest and best quality raw materials available for our clients. Our formulators also work within your budget to include ingredients that meet your price range.
Our custom product development services include the following product forms:
