We can assist in the Research and Development phases of developing a new custom formulation from scratch. We offer two levels of pre-production testing (contact for pricing).
We bring in all the ingredients and perform a small-scale benchtop of the fill material only (no encapsulation). This is to test the stability of the formulation to ensure all the ingredients stay in suspension. This test also will provide insight on the color of the fill material as some customers will choose to color the shell.
We conduct a benchtop as explained above, but will then encapsulate the fill material to produce finished softgel samples. These pilot runs will typically yield 4-10k softgels.
Pricing is based on the fill material ingredients combined with the volume of those respective softgels being ordered at a given time. Price breaks are issued as order volume increases. Contact our sales team for more information.
Our encapsulation MOQ is 50,000 softgels per product
Lead time is dictated by ingredient procurement, testing requirements, order volume, and packaging requirements. That said, we pride ourselves on our quick turnaround. Most of our customers see finished product in 2-4 weeks from the time we’ve received all ingredients.
We have a full bottling line that many of our customers and brands take advantage of due to our extremely competitive pricing. We utilize our relationships with various packaging component manufacturers and suppliers to ensure consistent price and supply. That way we can provide a reliable, consistent, fully turn-key manufacturing solution.
