Formulation Process

The formulation process shouldn't be a black box with us. Here at LA Collaboratory the formulation process is easy. You get one liaison between the formulator and you and technical experience with ingredients. Optional but often times asked, we offer formulation IP buy-out prior to start for a discounted price or a formulation buy-out at a later time.

Custom formulations typically start between

$1,200 - $6,500
