Your Brand Here
Are you interested in private labeling, white labeling, or custom formulation services? Ology Essentials is here to help! Our Chief Formulator has been in the natural cosmetic industry for over 20 years and has created formulas for small businesses and big name brands. Let us create the perfect formula to fit your needs!
- White Labeling: using a customer’s label on an Ology Essentials’ product and packaging
- Private Labeling: filling an Ology Essentials’ product or ingredient into a customer’s packaging
- Custom or Semi-Custom Formulation: formulating and filling a custom product into a customer’s own packaging
Filling projects require a complete formula and a sample of your packaging (boxes, bottles, tubes, caps, lids/pumps and labels) to produce an accurate quote.
Ology Essentials’ minimum filling and scenting for custom or semi-custom manufacturing is 50 units per SKU. And the minimum for white and private labeling is 25 units per SKU.
White Label Manufacturing Fees

If Ology Essentials is responsible for printing custom labels, a one time $50 setup fee per SKU is required. Ology Essentials can create custom labels upon request for $65 per hour plus material costs. Deposit on white labeling filling projects is 60% of total project and must be paid before manufacturing will begin.

Custom and Semi-Custom Formulation Manufacturing Fees

If a customer has an ideal formula example, a sample should be provided to Ology Essentials. All custom or semi-custom formulations and methodology are property of Ology Essentials and are being licensed to the client. A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) will be signed to keep customer formulations confidential. Manufacturing fees include a consultation with Ology Essentials’ chief formulator and two rounds of samples to ensure the formula is created how the customer intends. Special ingredients not in-house and needing to be sourced by Ology Essentials’ will be included in the customer’s cost of goods. Customers also have the option to supply Ology Essentials with special ingredients as long as it is accompanied by proper documentation and approved by Ology Essentials. Once a formula is agreed upon, Ology Essentials will provide a quote for going into production at our facility.
Ology Essentials offers two options for product packaging – Ology Essentials can source customer’s packaging at a 10% fee or customers can send Ology Essentials specific packaging at no additional cost. For both scenarios, packaging must be present in Ology Essentials’ facility before manufacturing of an order can occur. Manufacturing timelines are based on after product packaging is received by Ology Essentials. In order to supply an accurate quote, packaging must be discussed, agreed upon and a sample sent to Ology Essentials. Nearly any type of material will be accepted, but please keep in mind certain types of packaging and materials are subject to additional handling and shipping charges.
Estimated lead times depend on a customer’s service, arrival of all customer’s components (packaging, labels, boxes, etc.) volume amount and bearing no natural disasters.
