General FAQ

What is private labeling?

Private label is when we manufacture products that are marketed under your company’s brand and/or label.

Why private label?

Private label products are often positioned to be lower-cost alternatives to regional, national, or international brands. Some private label goods are positioned as “premium” brands. Private labeling allows you to create a brand to best reach your defined target market without having to spend the time and expense normally associated with creating your own products.

What products do you offer?

We currently offer more than 150 CBD products for you to choose from. Your products can be produced in many different forms, including tinctures, lotions, balms, capsules, creams, sprays, powders, tablets, serums, liquid products, or gels.

Is there a difference in cost between tinctures, capsules, tablets, liquids, creams, etc.?

As the manufacturing process differs between product forms, this may also affect the cost of your product.

Is there an average cost per bottle?

Cost of your product is determined by the ingredients in the formulations. Since ingredient prices differ, the cost of your product cannot be determined until a formula is finalized. Also, volume discount may apply to larger orders.

What is the minimum run of products you will make? OR What is your minimum order/batch size?

For White Label (No Label), products can only be purchased in increments of 24 qty. per SKU (Example: 24, 48, 72, 96, etc.). For Private Label, of most of our stock products, the minimum order is 100 units per SKU. For Custom Orders, the minimum order is 1000 units per SKU (Contact us for exact quote and details). All Samples, White Label, Private Label, Custom Label, and Bulk orders must be ordered separately and cannot be combined.

What are your R&D capabilities?

We have a full team and network of scientists, laboratory professionals, and chemists dedicated to researching and developing our newest in-house products, as well as creating our clients’ proprietary formulations.

Can we supply our own materials?

We utilize many raw ingredient providers to offer you the lowest cost products possible. To ensure your products’ quality, we only use suppliers and ingredients that we already have tested, are legally compliant, and provide the highest quality raw materials (qualified and approved Custom Orders can be the exception).

If I have a special nutraceutical ingredient I want to use from a specific ingredient supplier, can you acquire it for production?

In most cases, our efficiencies of scale allow us to source ingredients at the best price available. You may use ingredients from a specific ingredient supplier upon request and approval. However, if doing so, this would be considered a Custom Order, and the MOQ is 1,000 quantity per SKU.

What are your lead times?

Because of our commitment to obtaining the highest quality ingredients at the lowest cost and our strict adherence to all GMP regulations, we have different turnaround times based on the nature of your order.

– Sample orders are typically sent out within 5-7 days. White Label (No Label) orders are sent out within 7-10 days.
– Private Label orders are dependent upon label design and printing. The turnaround time for label design, review, and printing is 10-14 days. Once labels are printed, Private Label orders are completed approximately within 2-3 weeks.
– Custom Orders are completed approximately 6-8 weeks from when R&D is completed.
– Bulk Oil (raw) orders are completed within 7-10 days.

Do I need a formulation to get started with you?

No, it is not necessary to have the formula to get started. Most of our clients choose to use an existing house formula. If you would like to have our laboratory scientists create a proprietary formula based upon your needs and target audience, this is considered a Custom Order, and the MOQ is 1,000 quantity per SKU.

Is there an extra charge for a custom formulation?

There are additional fees to create a custom formulation (Contact us for a quote).

How can I find out the status of my production run?

Your dedicated FSI Biosciences Expert will work with you on every step of the process and update you on the status of your order and answer any questions you may have throughout the process.

Label Design

What label design support do you offer?

If you have placed a White Label (No Label) or Private Label order with us, we can provide a compliant label PDF template for you to reference as a guideline to help you with your label development, if requested.

How long will my label printing take?

Label printing process typically takes about 5-7 days. This does not include the time it takes to design and review your label, which is normally an additional 5-7 days.

Do you provide labels?

Yes. If you choose our Private Label ordering option, the following services are included: label setup, label design, review, printing and label application to your products. Due to compliance reasons, we are only able to apply labels our design team has created, reviewed and printed.

Do you offer custom package design help and do you manufacture packaging as well?

Yes. If you are placing a Custom Order of 1,000 or more items per SKU, we can create custom packaging and customize how the product is presented within your packaging, including printed inserts. Some options may incur an additional fee.

Can I print my own labels?

Yes, you can print your own labels. However, if you print your own labels, you will need to apply your labels, and we will ship products to you unlabeled. This is normally the quickest way to get your products delivered.

How can I be sure of the ingredients in my formulation, and the quality of ingredients?
