Existing formulas have been commended for their innovation in the beauty industry for its wellness focus and we intend to keep building on that success with future products.

Be Unique

We will discuss your requirements in fine detail first to get a precise and a clear brief of what your vision is and what you would like to achieve, who your target audience is, and the product’s main purpose. We find out what’s important to you and what you want to be unique about your brand and together we make that become reality.

We like to ensure that every new formula has its own unique identity and never create a formula twice. This is our favourite part of the process because we get to incorporate some new twists and elements to the product development. We work with you to capture the required textures, sensations, and scents using the best organic, vegan, and cruelty-free and provide you with unlimited samples until you are ready to sign it off!

Once your creation is born we will guide you through the whole branding process to get the exact vision you had in mind, to us all new products are our babies and we take great pleasure watching consumers enjoying them.

Be Current

We feel it’s important to keep updated on impact factors that need consideration when it comes to skincare products. These include the latest trends, inclusivity, Diversity and consumer requirements to ensure your client needs are met in every way possible. By partnering with essench we do all the research and development for you as the way we look at it, the more successful the product is will benefit both parties so only the best will do. The finished products are filled with pride and passion as if there were for our own brand.

Step By Step

Our Bespoke Process

Custom Cosmetic Manufacturing UK
Step 1
Discovery Call
Contact us with your product requirements including ingredient requests and volumes you require. We then discuss potential ideas we have for your products and the unique angle it can have in the market 
Step 2
Formulation Development
Once we have fully discussed and confirmed your requirements, a project costing proposal will be finalised. Once approved, we complete the appropriate paperwork and then get to work. Your visions are turned into reality and we begin creating samples of your product
Step 3
Formulation Testing
All new formulations or alterations to existing ones must have a new CPSR completed for consumer safety. Lead time is dependant on the type of product, water based products require microbial challenge test and have a longer development time than oil only products. During this period design requirements will be completed.
Step 4
Product Production
Once we have the green light from the lab, we will get to work manufacturing your products in our clean room at Essench headquarters. We enjoy sharing those videos with you so that you are a part of the experience every step of the way, its a great moment getting to see the product come together for both parties.
Step 5
Our aftercare is second to none. We care about our customers and the success of the product and your consumer feedback so that we can continue to develop.


All the packaging we source will have the environment at the top of its priorities. All our ingredients come from nature so its important for us to protect those ingredients.

Glass packaging


We find  not only does glass give our product the weight that is often found in high-end cosmetics, but it is also best friends with Mother Earth, because it can be used again or recycled.
Metal Packaging


We use metal in a lot of our packaging. Metal is sustainable, because it is both recyclable and reusable. We top all of our glass jars and bottles with metal lids and we use metal containers for products like balms when glass would be too fragile to use.

Bio Degradable Film

Our bath bombs usually come individually-wrapped in 100% biodegradable and compostable wood pulp film bags. If you chose to have your final products wrapped separately, this option looks like plastic, but it is oh so kind to the environment.
Eco Friendly Packaging

Other Earth-Friendly Packaging

We offer a wide selection of earth-friendly packaging and label options. Depending on your product, you can choose from: Seed Paper, Recycled Paper and Card, Luxury Textured Paper or a whole host of earth-kind materials.
