Risks and challenges
The next step, after our Kickstarter campaign has finished, is to get into a laboratory for product testing. This is performed by an independent cosmetic scientist who tests the product for a range of things such as stability and bacteria. We are confident that our product will pass these tests since we've been testing it ourselves for nearly three years. We also have the added benefit of working alongside an industry expert in cosmetic formulation to help guide us through the process.
This is needed to gain approval to sell in the EU. The EU has the most stringent of laws regarding cosmetics, meaning ours are the safest in the world. Because they are so stringent it allows us to also sell to many other places in the world.
Following approval the challenge is auditioning factories in the UK to be able to make our product. Many factories have high MOQ's which is part of the reason we are doing crowdfunding: to get a large enough first order. Again we have industry experts and formulators who are mentoring us through the process.
Although the aim is to deliver by March 2019, there is always a risk of something "going wrong". Should this be the case we will inform all our backers regarding a delay. But there's also the possibility we might want to launch earlier! Again our backers will be informed.
As with any cosmetics there are cautions. Avoid contact with eyes. In the case this occurs rinse well with warm water immediately. Do not use on irritated or damaged skin. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Do not use beyond expiration date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
