01 Formulations Verification
We practice various testing by using testing devices and the actual person’s skin to inspect during the formulation development stage. Since our goal is to develop a lower stimulated product, we therefore execute inspection on both raw materials and formulations.
We perform both stability and preservative challenge tests besides routine microbiological tests to maintain high quality by detailed inspection of assuming all possible causes. Therefore, we are confident that our refined products are safe to use for a long time.
We implement various validation tests to verify the new formulation has the designed effects. Tests include the level of cells such as the three-dimensional cultured skin model ( reproduction of human’s cell and skin ) and observation of actual use by the person.
02 Products Philosophy
Ariel Biotech always pursues high-quality skincare of mature formulations with rigorous effects. We have put great resources for high-quality skincare development since we have been manufacturing professional beauty salon products for more than 23 years. Many of our products use all-natural formulations to meet environment-friendly market trends and regulations, especially in Europe. More than 90% of materials import from Europe, the USA, Japan, and Australia with certificates.
We have been selling and manufacturing beauty salon skin care for more than 23 years, and our own four brand companies’ total annualized revenue is more than 300M USD. We have more than 10,000 mature formulations in our laboratory database, all these formulations have been tested by our laboratory and have been verified by the end-users in beauty salons. Customers can choose our current formulations or we can support rapid formulation development per customers’ specific requirements.
To support customers’ demand for “cleaning” formulations, we have developed a whole series of all-natural formulations to meet high-end customers’ requirements. Each formula being developed in our laboratory meets the high-level regulation requirements of both EU and FDA, using raw materials directly imported from Europe. In addition, all the products we produce or materials we use are cruelty-free and have not undergone any animal tests.
Quality is the key to our success in the market for the last 23 years. Our facility is an FDA-registered factory, and we are certified by GMPC and ISO22716. Our laboratory can make all routine testing for skincare as microbiological test, formulation stability test, skin cell test, effects test, etc. All the products we produce have to pass inspection/certification tests before we ship them out.
We use simplifying philosophy in our formulation development to make our skincare products more professional because a slight change in key ingredients may cause a different result. Our simplifying formulation can be used for a specific effect, which can give the customers more choice for their dedicated skin problem. The simplifying formulation needs robust research capability to make the correct formulation. Besides the formulation, we also use a simplifying package for the skincare products, as we want to provide the best products to our customers without the added packaging costs.
