Formulation Development

Our formulations are gentle on both the skin and the earth. While modern technology has long since superseded the more traditional methods of toiletries manufacturing, our passion for excellence and transparency is still evident in every product we bring to the marketplace.

We are proud to be an industry-leader in clean product formulations, thereby setting the highest standard for the toiletries marketplace worldwide.  Cosmetic-grade and in compliance with the rigid guidelines put forth by the Personal Care Product Council, we are proud to offer the following:

Gilchrist & Soames Premier Formulations, created without:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Mineral oil
  • Urea
  • DEA
  • TEA
  • Petrolatum
  • Propylene glycol

We use food-grade, naturally derived USP glycerin, and natural conditioning agents from honey and the Brassica plant instead of petrochemicals. We are also committed to cruelty-free development and vow to never test our personal care products on animals.

We are also proud to offer product collections that are RSPO certified. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative on certified sustainable palm oil, offering an assurance to our customer that the standard of production used is sustainable. What does RSPO certified sustainable palm oil mean?  It is palm oil that is grown and certified against the 8 RSPO principles and criteria. These stringent sustainability criteria relate to social, environmental and economic best practices.
