Ethno Solutions is a contract formulation laboratory for the cosmetic and personal care market. We help salon and spa owners who may be interested in creating their own product line by developing the actual formulas, as well as helping set up everything associated with the products.

Why we're different:
With Ethno Solutions, you are not renting or leasing formulas. Instead we create them and you own them from the start. We will help you negotiate with every vendor associated with your new line, from packaging to manufacturing.

How we work: We can set up face-to-face meetings, telephone conferences or communicate via email to discuss your potential interest. We forward you a product development request form to fill out with your product desires. We set up another meeting to discuss project feasibility, time-frame and development cost. Upon your approval, we move ahead at your recommended pace.

Our services include: hair/skin care formulations; re-formulations and formula duplications; new product ideas and recommendations; formulation cost-savings plans; R&D profit growth strategies; formulation grid strategies; coordination of small sample runs up to 3,000 bottles; cost savings and improvements to existing lines; hair swatch studies; salon studies and workshops; packaging, stability and compatibility studies; sub-contractor negotiations; solutions to manufacturing problems; industrial scale-up recommendations; marketing claims ingredients support services; claims substantiation studies; technical outsourcing services; and cosmetic documents preparation services.

Catch us at: Presentations upon request at your place or our place.

Our advice: "Make sure you understand the actual mechanism of every single step before, during and after the process. Your formula should be unique, like your own DNA."
