The Custom Manufacturing Processes
Understanding your requirements
First, we understand your market and product requirements & specifications. You come with a product concept and/or specifications & requirements. You can have

- Marketing USPs of your product
- Packaging concept and specifications

Our technical team brainstorms on your market & product specifications, regulatory requirements, technical and production scale feasibility and ease of material availability, etc. So, we can deliver the most suitable product that closely aligns with your product specifications while at the same time giving you confidence in getting it success in the market and building a strong brand.
Product formula development
We start developing a product formula that is most suitable to your needs. We prepare some laboratory samples and provide them to you for your evaluation & feedback. Based on your feedback, we fine-tune the product formulation. This may require some iterations of sampling & feedback. And then we finalize the product formulation once you are satisfied with the product sample and approve the same
Product packaging selection
While we work on developing the product formula, we also capture your product packaging requirements. We suggest you packaging options that are most suitable for your products & we finalize product packaging requirements. On your behalf, we handle all the challenges of choosing reliable suppliers and the right packaging that goes well with the product and gives the consumers the convenience of use.
Cost estimations and approval
We give you product cost estimates based on your finalized product formulation and packaging requirements. Based on the cost estimations provided and the product samples provided you can make a wise decision on the viability of the product in your target market. If the product does not seem viable for you, based on your feedback we may rework the selected formulation or packaging to match your expectations and send you the final product sample for your check and approval before placing a confirmed purchase order.
Product feasibility study
A packaging feasibility check is performed to see if the components of the package and the packaging of the completed product fulfill quality requirements and are safe from damage such as leaks, drops, and environmental impacts. We do a basic feasibility check at this point to confirm if the selected formulation and its packaging can go hand-in-hand. Later on, after order confirmation, we do a detailed feasibility study.
Once You approve the costing and product specifications, place a confirmed order for commercial production, and process the advance payment as per the agreed payment terms. Once you confirm the order, based on your approval of the formulation and packaging, a systematic process for the new product order processing will be triggered.

How will Zymo assure quality defects and help us handle consumer complaints?
At Zymo we believe to nail down any quality defects in the products at our end only before the dispatch of the goods. For that, we follow strict quality control and quality assurance practices in compliance with ISO 22716 and ISO 9001. In some cases, if insisted by our buyers we also extend support for any Third-party inspection before e dispatch of goods. For cosmetic products quality defects and consumer complaints can occur due to several factors like improper storage conditions, poor handling in transportation, skin and hair type of the consumers, false label claims on the product artworks or product promotional materials, production defects, and many more. Except for the production defects, none of the reasons is in the control of the manufacturer. So, we can assure our clients against manufacturing/production defects only. For consumer complaints of the other types, we extend our support to our clients in the best possible way so that the clients can handle the complaints with the consumer in a better way at their end.
Who will select the suppliers and source the raw materials & packaging materials required to manufacture the products?
We have a very good network of suppliers, which we have selected by following a special "Supplier Assessment System" and most of them are also supplying to many multinational companies and can reliably supply quality products to us. We keep on adding new suppliers’ year-on-year bases. So, we can procure the required RM & PM by maintaining higher quality standards for manufacturing the products from these suppliers. Especially for PM, wherever required, we can give you various options to select for your products during product development. However, if you have assessed and selected any supplier and you want us to buy any specific RM or PM from that supplier only. We can consider sourcing that specific RM & PM from your suggested supplier as per the terms you would have decided with that supplier.
What if we select the packaging material suppliers and ask you to purchase from them?
We consider developing the products as per your required specifications. It's your product and you have every right to decide from whom you need PM for your products; however, the purchase material quality and supplier's reliability are the key components for smooth production planning. If you are confident enough that your referred supplier will be reliable, do share the details of the supplier and its product with us. Our purchase team will assess the supplier if it is new. Also, we may require selected packaging samples to check if the same is suitable for the product we selected and with our existing filling & packaging technology. If we found any issues with the selected product or supplier, we will share our observations with you. And based on your suggestions we will proceed further and raise PO to the supplier considering the terms agreed upon between you and your suppliers. We will process payments to the supplier in such cases as per the agreed payment terms provided that your due payments with us are cleared.

If we require some special document from the manufacturer to register the product in a country other than India, will you provide the same?
Yes! Why not. We never miss any opportunity where we can be of any help to the Brand Owners. Regulatory norms vary from country to country so we first need to understand exactly what documents and any other things like product samples etc. are required for registering products in the country of Import. Once you provide these details, we would provide you with documents and details which is readily available to us or can be developed by my team itself like certificates, product specifications, COA, MSDS, etc. within a week. For the rest of the documents we help and support you in the best possible ways to get them from the respective government or other departments. We can also arrange product samples (in non-printed packaging) for registration or testing if required.
Will you allow our technical person or third-party inspection agency to remain present during the manufacturing of our Products?
YES! We believe in total transparency and the brand owner should know how their products are being manufactured the give them quality assurance and a new perspective on showcasing how their products are different from any other in the market, other in the market giving them overall confidence while pitching their product with good quality assurance. In some cases, if requested by the client we may shoot a small video of various steps of the actual manufacturing of your products compiled well in good, professional quality video with proper text captions explaining various process stages. Such videos can help you in your promotional activities as well.
