Formulation Development services include details steps required for the manufacture of your cosmetic product.

We have extensive knowledge of the suppliers of cosmetics ingredients that will meet your Natural and/or Organic cosmetic labelling requirements. You will be supplied with ingredient Material Safety Data Sheets and certifications for each and every ingredient in your formulation.
Once your formulation is complete, our lab will provide you with a 500 gram prototype product sample for your evaluation of product esthetics (color, viscosity, odor/fragrance) and sensorials (how the product feels when applied to the skin). If necessary, we can then adjust the formulation to comply with your market objectives.
A critical and necessary component of any cosmetic formulation development project, we will conduct preliminary in-house Stability Testing and Microbial Testing. Following our in-house testing, your product prototype will be submitted to independent laboratories that specialize in independent third-party testing of cosmetic formulations.

ABOUT DESERT IN BLOOM COSMETICS LAB

Desert In Bloom Cosmetics Labs, based in Houston, Texas is operated by Mark Broussard. Mark has an undergraduate degree in Microbiology and Masters Degrees in Organic Chemistry and Business Administration from the University of Texas – Austin. He has several years experience in venture capital and private equity focusing on investments in the Healthcare, Environmental and Biotechnology industries.

In 2010, Mark founded Desert In Bloom, a medical spa, based in Houston where he and his staff focused on treating acne using a variety of esthetic techniques, including lasers. In researching acne, Mark’s curiosity was piqued regarding the state-of-the-art in topical acne treatments. Through his research, he sourced numerous clinical studies from across the globe where researchers we reporting impressive results in treating acne using plant extracts from natural, renewable sources, but these ingredients were not being used in most commercial topical acne products. So, Mark did what most enterprising entrepreneurs do …

He decided to create his own line of products using all natural ingredients that were proven effective and dovetailed with his philosophy of all natural, renewable, cruelty-free and gentle to the skin, yet effective.
