We can offer both off-the-shelf formulas or custom development, depending on your needs or your dreams!

Quality Control

Our quality control department helps ensure that all aspects of your product comply with FDA, FTC and CTFA regulations. We review all marketing claims and test all new products for stability and consistency. Rest assured knowing that your product was developed and manufactured the right way, every time. It's paying attention to the details like this that make Concept Labs a successful private label skin care manufacturer.

Contract Packaging/Artwork

Packaging is vital. Creating effective beauty products is important, but it’s just the beginning. Without the right look, even the most effective product in the world will collect dust on the shelf. We can source or help custom design any consumer-friendly component you want: tubes, bottles, jars, pumps, boxes, and more. You’re free to design your own artwork, or let our graphic design department create a look for you that will truly stand out. It’s all up to you.

We also feature in-house auto-labeling services for efficiently and accurately applying labels.


Being a skin care product contract or private label manufacturer presents some unique challenges. You need expert full time in house experienced chemists, onsite quality assurance, a fully stocked laboratory, and access to cutting-edge skincare ingredients. You need a thorough understanding of the market, the competition, and how your products will be regulated by the FDA.
