Solutions for all businesses

Success is about getting the ingredients right



We’re habitual experimenters, learners and innovators. That’s what kept us, and most importantly our customers, right at the leading edge of personal care.



We have a clear view of what’s coming next in personal care, and how your business can make the most of it.



We’re always here for you. Simple as that. With advice on how to develop your products, how to market them and sometimes just a favour when you need it.



Getting the ingredients right isn’t just about what you put in. It’s about how you assemble those ingredients and the people needed to get everything just right…

Who we partner with

Cosmetic Brands

From the outside, you might assume we’re a small business, but once you look in, you’ll realise our operations are sizable and advanced. As your partner, we’re more agile, quicker to respond and able to help bring innovations to market faster.

Distributors & Online Partners

We’re a manufacturer of personal care bases and ingredients, we’re not a distribution company. Having a global network of distribution partners enables our customers to get the products they need when they need them. So, if you think there’s a gap in our network and you already have an established distribution business, we want to hear from you!

Contract manufacturers

Whether it’s a one-off project or a continued supply of base ingredients, we can help you at every point of the process. We’ve got some pretty exciting and innovative products up our sleeves, but we know the processing of these bases isn’t always as straightforward as we’d like it to be. That’s why we’ll work with you from start to finish, ensuring the bases process just as they should.

Formulation Labs

If you’re growing a business in personal care, we’re here to help. We’re always ready to talk about you and your products – how to make them, how to make them even better and how to get them out there into the market. As a customer, you’ll always find us to be supportive, accessible, there when you need us. The kettle’s always on.

What those who work with us say...


We approached Stephenson at the end of 2016 with a challenge to develop a natural soap bar using 100% coconut oil. In beauty products, coconut oil can sometimes be a difficult ingredient to work with so it was important to ensure the manufacturing process was without complication which Stephenson did with great detail and professionalism!

We've tried a number of Liquid Castile Soap products on the market but none compare with your formulation. The processing of this base is much easier than others which makes it significantly more desirable and we've had nothing but positive feedback from our customers.

Brand Manager

Global Leading Personal Care Brand


I contacted Stephenson who understood our needs and quickly found a solution to support our growth. I'm thrilled to have found a trusted partner and look forward to our ongoing relationship with Stephenson.
