How we work with Contract Manufacturers

01

Initial Discovery

It’s important that we meet the criteria for your clients - we’re here to add value every step of the way. We’ll have a chat about the project and what your client wants to achieve. Things such as product requirements and volumes will be discussed at this stage too. 

02

Project Briefing

We’ll build a brief from all the information we’ve gathered, present it back to you and your team and await any additional feedback. 

03

Samples and Testing

This is where the magic happens! You’ll receive some samples to begin trialling and will ensure we’re with you every step of the way gaining appropriate feedback from you and your team. 

04

Final Preparations

The project is almost ready for launch! Before going into full production, we’ll ensure the correct logistics are in place and any additional commercials are needed to create the finished products. The base products will be produced and despatched to your desired location. 

Got a question?

We have listed some of our most common questions we receive from those in the cosmetic industry. If there is something else you’d like to know, please contact us and a member of the Stephenson team would be more than happy to assist.

We need to get as much information as possible to understand your requirements. If you're looking for large volumes of a product, then it's likely that we'll work directly together, but in some instances, we'll team you up with one of our global distribution partners. This simply enables you to get the products you need when you need them.

The easiest way to start this process is by filling out a contact form. If you meet specific criteria, you'll be referred to one of our distributors, or we'll ask you a few more questions, and members of the team will be in touch. If you have any questions, you can always reply to the email you'll be sent once you fill in the contact form, and a member of the team will be happy to help.

Some of our products run like many other extruded bases and often don't require any assistance. For some of our specialist products, such as Syndopal 300 MB, we usually send one of our technical experts to ensure the trial runs smoothly.

We work confidentially on all projects with our customers and do not discuss other projects or formulations without prior consent from one of our partners. We know how important confidentiality is so we're happy to sign NDA’s where ever appropriate. 

We have a number of resources available on our website including trend guides and product innovation, you can find these in the knowledge centre. Direct customers also have access to a resource library that contains product videos, imagery, technical documents and other relevant product news/information.

Our team is on hand, ready to help with any specific questions. You can contact us by filling out our contact form here. For general information and product information, you can find a number of frequently asked questions via our FAQs on each product page.

Sampling is an important part of any project, and we want to make sure we're getting it right for you. By filling out a contact form we can get a better understanding of your project and can recommend the right solution for you. For smaller projects, we recommend customers procure smaller quantities from our network of distribution partners, for large scale projects we may be able to offer samples directly.
