Looking for a company that can design a new formula or manufacture your business' existing, unique formulation? Complete our Contract Manufacturing Questionnaire to determine if we are a fit for your project!
Contract manufacturing can offer you more flexibility. You partner with the manufacturer to design your own formulas (or scale-up existing formulations) and packaging. This means room for more differentiation in the marketplace as you get to develop a product that is entirely unique to your brand. The downside? Higher order minimums and longer lead times.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS Contract manufactured products start with higher minimums of between 5-50 gallons, depending upon the formulation.
AliMar ships to United States addresses only. Expected
turnaround time for orders will vary depending upon the size of the
order and services required to complete the order. A typical turnaround
expectation for a simple fill order without any graphic art or label
printing needs is approximately 15 days. If you will be providing labels, boxes, packaging or other non-stock components, please add a minimum of six (6) weeks to your
order processing time. If you choose from one of our "Quick Shelf
Print" stock label designs, add a minimum of one (1) week to your order
PRE-PRODUCTION SAMPLES Private Label and Contract
Manufacturing services are custom tailored to your wants and needs for
your products. Because each order is customized to meet those
requirements, all orders are NON REFUNDABLE. Due to this policy, we
strongly recommend that you purchase pre-production samples before
finalizing your private label order. This will ensure that you are
receiving the fragrance and color mix you expect. There is a
non-refundable deposit of $200.00 for this service and $100 of this deposit amount will be applied towards any orders that are placed within six weeks of delivery of your pre-production samples. The
pre-production sample kit consists of four items of your choice in a 2
Approval of pre-production samples will be required by the customer
before placing the final order. Once we have received approval of the
pre-production sample, production of the private label order will begin.
Changes to orders after production has begun cannot be accepted.
If you choose not to purchase the pre-production samples, we will
require you to sign a Waiver of Liability.
Returns are not accepted for any reason once the custom product formula
has been processed. Due to the nature of manufacturing with natural
ingredients, there can be slight variations in color, thickness/thinness
and scent of all bases from batch to batch. These changes are NOT
grounds for a return. All sales are final. Due to the nature of our
products, we are unable to accept returns and still guarantee purity of
product to our customers. Products will be replaced or refunded, only in
the case of a shipping error on our part or damage during shipping only
once a claim has been issued by the freight carrier, not for
accidentally ordering the wrong product, not liking the color, feel,
texture, scent or any other physical aspect of the product or shelf life
issues that may occur to products you have pre-approved or products
that you alter after delivery.
If we make a mistake, then we will immediately reproduce your product
and will ship it to you via the originally requested method of
transport. We will not Overnight reproduced product when you originally
paid for ground services.
Note: Cancellations, if allowed can only be done if we have not already
started making your product or have not pre-ordered any required
ingredients. Once production has begun, we cannot cancel, credit or
refund for any reason.
We would be happy to quote your project once you have completed the questionnaire linked above and we have received all of the

protection of both parties. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a
copy of the agreement or go to the Forms section of the web site for a
