4 Crucial Questions to Ask Your Skincare Manufacturer
As a private label skincare provider, you need to ensure the manufacturers you work with offer the best quality skin care products.
Instead of filtering through and negotiating with several manufacturers, approach a manufacturer that can help you with the entire process. Ensure they can meet your deadlines, MOQ requirements (minimum order quantity) and price. Here are some questions to ask before deciding on a manufacturer.
How do you determine your timeline to ensure a successful launch for my product? Is there a solution to ensure a speedy go-to-market strategy for my brand?
There are many factors that influence a successful launch. Demand a detailed timeline from your manufacturer. Depending on the complexity of your formula, as well as your order quantity, your order may take longer. Make sure you know how long the development and manufacturing process takes.

Do you charge extra for formulation development?
Make sure to ask about additional costs to the production process. Many manufacturers won’t disclose all the fees at the beginning of the negotiation process. Fees for formulation development is one of these.

What processes do you have in place to help my brand remain compliant?
Make sure you stay ahead of the latest skincare trends by following regulatory industry changes. Don’t fall into the trap of junk suppliers.
Note that manufacturers often need to state where their ingredients come from. If your manufacturer is unaware of the regulations in place to ensure the safety of your product, you might incur additional expenses and penalties. Our policy at Evora follows the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) regulations and we stay informed when any of these change.
Something often not mentioned in the production process is label design and packaging compliance. At Evora we employ a design department that can bring you beautiful logo designs, packaging, and shipping boxes for your product.
After you’ve decided on a design, our packaging department checks the packaging for compliance and regulatory adherence. This ensures that you will have the correct language and terminology on your labels.
Don’t lose money and waste time working with manufacturers and suppliers without a highly credible operation and who can’t produce on time. With Evora you will have the opportunity to work with our industry experts to negotiate your costs, order the quantity that is right for you with our excellent MOQ offerings, and rest assured that your product follows GMP regulations.
