Find suppliers for raw materials based on the needs of each product
When looking for suppliers for raw materials, it is important to find those that can provide based on the needs of each product. For example, a supplier for a moisturiser would not be the same as a supplier for a shampoo. It is important to find a supplier that can provide the quality and quantity that you need. This is to gauge a rough cost for your product you will be expecting to purchase it from the factory.
At times special ingredients factories might not have it in ready stock, and it is a chance to protect and capitalize on it with the factory by buying warehousing and selling it to factory to make your unique product.
6. Find a suitable factory
When finding a suitable factory, there are a few things you should take into account. The first is the quality of the products they produce. You want to be sure that the factory can produce products that meet your standards with the relevant local approvals such as registrations. The next thing to consider is the price of the products. You want to be sure that the factory can produce products at a price that is within your budget. Finally, you want to be sure that the factory can produce the quantity of products you need for today and the future.
One thing to consider is the formulation and the complexity, some factories will try to lock in customers by holding the formulations to themselves without options to purchase the formulation so brands are able to move to other factories.
