WORK METHOD

What makes us different from other manufacturers?

Nophie offers vision and change in its way of conceiving and making cosmetics; natural, healthy, effective and personalised cosmetics as opposed to mass industrial production of generic cosmetics.

we manufactur products offering maximum guarantee and quality by selectively choosing each raw material and by doing so we can respond to the efficiency of the product required.

Choice

We are conscious of the difference that a careful choice of raw material can make to the end product.

The criteria we use in formulation is to obtain the final composition ingredient by ingredient. We do not use mixed ingredients as this does not give any guarantee to our customer that he will be getting the correct percentage of each one in the formula. Our aim is to be able to guarantee the exact composition of the final product.

Performance

In our aim to obtain maximum performance from our products , we study the optimal concentration of each ingredient to reach the desired effect.

For example, if our products contain 2.5% aloe vera extract in a 1/40 concentration ratio, they are as equally efficient as a product containing 100 % aloe vera.

Our concentration ratio of 1/40 means that each gramme introduced into the formula contains 40 grammes of plant extract.

Study

We start each process with a comparative study between the product requested and the benchmark product on the market. Analising all ingredients used is the only way we can demonstrate to our customer that the product commissioned is superior to that of its competitors.

HOW WE MANUFACTURE

We conceive, we formulate, we manufacture, we design and we pack.

research and development, USP and product identity

Upon briefing by Nophie Consulting, our team of technicians and botanical experts create the formula, the soul of the product, which makes it unique on the market.
