FAQs

• What are your minimums?
ALMA Laboratories has one of the lowest minimums in the contract packaging and manufacturing industry on custom formulated products. The minimum are generally dictated by the size of the smallest batch (100 kgs) and filling line requirements of 2,500 pcs. We can accept smaller or may require larger minimum depending on factors such as package minimums, and batch sizes.

• How long does it take?
Our typical lead times are only 4 to 8 weeks depending on the project for manufacturing. If we start with formulation services, packaging design and sourcing, testing and manufacturing the typical time restraints may be 6 months to a year to launch. It is advisable that no matter whom you will engage, to budget at least 6 months for a comfortable launch date.

• How does this work?
We can create a custom formulated product or you can use one of our stock bases that we can scent, fill and label with your labels for that professional look. If you would like us to create a custom formulation or if you simply want to use one of our stock bases that we can scent and even color or add some extra ingredients then just let us know. We offer several options to fit any budget and our formulations are backed by our Minimum Shelf Life Guarantee. Contact us today with the details of your project and we can help you get started right away.

Our packaging capabilities include almost any bottle or jar. Almost any tubes (with properly fitted tooling) can be filled at our facility.

Samples are required for testing before a quote can be offered.
