Research & Devolpment
Our fulltime chemists operate a state-of-the-art in-house laboratory, allowing us to conduct the majority of our Research and Development on site. This greatly contributes towards an expedited manufacturing time, thanks to convenient testing and formulation development.
Our chemists utilize a vast collection of authoritative and innovative resources to conduct research. Information sharing on Raw Material Technical Data, Material Safety Data Sheets, and Clinical Data is provided through our vendors and our close relationship with their laboratories. We also utilize online references, academic references, and clinical sources.
Our lab gathers detailed scientific knowledge on raw materials and their effectiveness, in order to improve and expand our product lines and formulations. All development processes are assigned lab numbers and undergo systematic testing of various actives and ingredient interaction. Samples are often provided to client focus panels for assessment, resulting in higher quality products, safer formulations, and competitive pricing.
We’ve been in operation for over 20 years and have accumulated immense formulation insight. Thanks to our experienced chemists and in-house laboratory, there is virtually no limit to our formulation capabilities. We will work with you to design and develop a profitable product suited to meet your market needs. Some of the many formulas we have the ability to create are cleansers, creams, gels, lotions, masks, oils, peels, scrubs, and serums.
Success shouldn’t be hindered by unfamiliar restrictions, so we are dedicated to assisting our clients through all industry red tape and regulatory compliance in both domestic and international marketplaces.
We are familiar with many global control procedures and can assist with all aspects of product registration.
We have the utmost faith in delivering the greatest product every single time, thanks to our stringent testing and quality control standards. Our products are tested during development, production, and filling to ensure consistent and stable results. We conduct the vast majority of our product testing on site.
All products are scrutinized for the highest quality using state of the art equipment. Specific Gravity (sg) tests, pH balance tests, Viscosity tests, Appearance (aesthetics) tests, Odor tests, Microbial tests, Stability tests and Selective Heavy Metal tests are all standard tests we conduct regularly.
Sanibel operates using cutting edge technological equipment to produce the latest in skin, body and specialty hair care products.
Our factory provides the highest quality OEM manufacturing services available, complete with bulk manufacturing, filling, decorating, packing and shipping, and storage functionality. Our on-site laboratory allows us to create innovative formulations, as well as observe the highest quality control and product testing standards.
Clients are always welcome to visit our facility and experience first-hand the commitment and excellence of our operations.
Our facility utilizes cutting edge manufacturing equipment to capitalize on the production of high quality products using both high and low volume runs
Our formulas are mixed in our modern stainless steel mixers capable of both hot and cold mixing processes, and accommodating a vast array of formulations, viscosities and particle sizes.
All our lines are equipped with semi-automatic and automatic fillers, cappers and sealers. Mixed formulas are then processed on either our jar & bottle lines, or our tube lines. Products on our jar & bottle lines are filled and capped, while those on the tube lines are filled and sealed using heated and ultra-sonic sealing equipment.
All products merge for the labeling process using our extensive assortment of labelers. Once labeled, they are coded using advanced inkjet and laser coders. Finally, we use heated sealing equipment to safety seal and shrinkwrap the products, which are then delivered to packaging.
Sanibel provides all the necessary stages of manufacturing, such as mixing, filling, capping, coding, labeling, safety sealing, packaging, and shipping.
All of our workers are highly trained and use the latest technological equipment to create high quality products on fluid production lines.
To ensure that we achieve and uphold the highest quality standards, our quality control process involves methodical and continuous testing during the formulation and development stage.
While in production, manufacturing practices are routinely monitored by our onsite quality control chief and factory management. Products are inspected at multiple intervals on the production line to ensure that everything that leaves the factory is of the highest standard and error-free.
All factory workers are required to wear sanitary clothing and observe our strict hygiene policy. We conduct daily equipment inspections and thorough cleaning procedures.
Our receiving process uses an organized inspection procedure for all inbound items. Whether it is raw materials, samples, or packaging, everything is processed and organized through our receiving system. This ensures that we register and manage all items delivered to us.
We have a dedicated receiving area under which all freight is sorted and categorized, to ensure easy distribution and stringent receiving protocols, preventing damage and loss.
If necessary, we offer warehousing services for active clients,Our warehouse accommodates various items, such as packaging, raw materials and labels.
Any items stored with us are registered through our inventory system, allowing us to take over tracking and maintenance.
We regularly ship everything from small packages to large containers and routinely work with UPS, FedEx and USPS. We can use our client’s carrier of choice, and can also work through freight forwarders.
All shipping is inspected by our shipping chief and our quality control chief and undergoes a final quality check to ensure that packages are adequately prepared, secured, and ready for departure.
