It used to be that all that mattered in cosmetic or skincare formulation was a headliner “hero” ingredient that would enable companies to create buzz and cash in on the latest fad.
Today, consumers are becoming much too savvy for that to work. They know what they want, and that’s clean, beneficial products without the junk. We believe this is an irreversible trend, rather than a fleeting fad that will be gone next year. The world of cosmetic skincare has transitioned into health and wellness with true efficacious benefits. Raw material companies are regularly launching innovative, healing, and beneficial raw materials, including complex blends that are making a huge difference for formulators and, ultimately, the end user.
Tropical Labs is uniquely positioned to support brands seeking to offer the cleanest, most innovative skincare products. This is not merely aspirational, or a clever marketing spin. We have specialists who dig deep to find answers and develop amazing products, much more than traditional formulations.
For our high level clients, we offer one of the best genomic consultations in the world during the R&D process. This enables us to translate health and wellness needs into topical and ingestible products that will offer true benefits to the majority of people.
For example, synthetic vitamins typically clog the liver, so using natural vitamins in formulations delivers maximum health and wellness benefit.
Or for another example, tumeric has become a widely popular ingredient for anti-inflammation, but did you know that it’s not as bioavailable in the body without a delivery uptake like black pepper extract?
Skincare and haircare are the next areas to conquer. Understanding that scientists have established a gut-skin axis, you tend to notice and think about how that translates into product formulation, both internal and external.
The Tropical Labs team includes a formulation specialist, genomist and R&D Director who work symbiotically together and lwho understands how ingredients work within the DNA and genome pathways throughout the body, for good or ill. This helps us focus on the good and reject the bad. We’re not merely guessing at what could work, but applying our expertise to develop amazing, beneficial products that are as close to the Socrates saying “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.
We challenged ourselves to find the answers and we found great clients along the way who are eager to pioneer exciting ideas in this space.
Working with our clients, Tropical Labs has created beautiful, clean, healing products. I’m excited about where we are going in this frontier of health and wellness. And this is only the beginning!
When it all comes together, it’s a beautiful product!
