Let’s Talk About Your Needs

Proven Success Supporting a Wide Range of Industries & Applications with Product Development & Innovation Services

Industrial Manufacturing

Avomeen can help support your company whether you’re developing a new industrial product or need help troubleshooting an issue. Our experience analyzing and formulating sealants and adhesives, plastics and polymers, paints, coatings, and more can give you an edge up on your competition. From sourcing and testing raw materials to quality control and competitor comparisons, we’re here to help.

Our team of industry-leading scientists and formulators were enlisted by a client to deformulate and reformulate their existing drain cleaner product. This specific product is used in the maintenance of plumbing throughout cruise ships. After conducting thorough research, our expert chemists identified a problem that could potentially lead to regulatory issues. The issue was remedied and we identified new suppliers and chemical alternatives for their formulation, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements while reducing the overall cost of the product.

Chemicals & Materials

Our scientists have decades of experience investigating, studying, and analyzing chemicals and materials to identify potential hazards, pinpoint the source of contamination or failure, and improve competitive positioning of existing or new products.

Avomeen was contacted to help a client commercialize a brand-new technology based on the appropriate formulation and coating of graft co-polymers. In close partnership with our client, our team of scientists gained a thorough understanding of the manufacturing process and engineered a solution that would allow the coating to be applied via a dye. This innovative solution worked best for our client’s manufacturing process and the product met all required specifications, including evaporation, low toxicity, zero flammability and reflective properties.

Consumer & Household Products

Our laboratory has experience innovating and improving upon a variety of consumer and household products, including cleaning products for a wide range of consumer and household applications. We can determine the cleaning and sanitizing effectiveness of a product, discover and analyze potential failures, identify and quantify ingredients to prevent contamination, formulate new innovative products, and much more.

Avomeen helped a client who needed to recover the formula for a central product in their product line. In addition to establishing the formula of their previously lost dish soap, they tasked our team with modifying the formula to improve performance, as well as analyzing key competitor’s products. Our team of experienced formulators matched the color and fragrance of the previous formula and improved the performance and efficacy of the product. Most importantly, the improved formula proved to be more effective than the key competitive formula identified by our client.

Green & Eco-Friendly

Green, eco-friendly and all of the terms surrounding can seem overwhelming. Luckily, our team of scientists have extensive experience creating new, innovative products and improving upon existing product formulas to ensure they meet green and/or eco-friendly standards. Avomeen’s team of knowledgeable scientists stay up to date with the most current regulatory guidance and industry trends, and have proven success optimizing paints, coatings, personal care, household products and more to meet environmental and sustainability standards.

Avomeen was contacted to reverse engineer (deformulate) and reformulate an existing water and soil remediation product used for environmental clean-up efforts. In addition to being environmentally friendly and highly effective, the product needed to be manufactured and sold at an affordable price point. Our scientists formulated an environmentally friendly product that maintained the same level of efficacy while reducing the cost of the product by 40 percent.

OTC & Nutraceutical Products

Avomeen has experience working to ensure compliance to the U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP) and European Pharmacopeia (Ph. Eur.) when producing improved, novel and national brand equivalent (NBE) over the counter (OTC) and nutraceutical products. Our consultative scientists have experience supporting the entire product lifecycle and have a proven track record of providing stable products with exceptional batch-to-batch consistency.

A client contacted Avomeen after their manufacturer refused to continue producing an over-the-counter toothpaste product that was central to their product offerings. As the manufacturer held the formula details, our client needed to engage a team of multi-disciplinary scientists to identify the formula of their product. Not only were our scientists able to discover the formula, but the efficacy of the product was improved as well.

Personal Care

Avomeen specializes in developing unique and custom formulations for a variety of personal care products to meet our client’s exact specifications. Our full-service laboratory offers product testing services including impurity investigations, competitor product analysis, shelf life, performance claims, and more. Our scientists have analyzed and developed hundreds of personal care and cosmetic products including hair care, bath and body products, sunscreens, skincare products, and more.

Avomeen partnered with a client who was interested in expanding their range of use for plant sterols to include cosmetic and body care products. Our innovative scientists and formulators developed a body lotion which incorporated common ingredients in addition to their plant sterols. The lotion was created for maximum clinical efficacy, appearance and texture, and has been highly successful.

Comprehensive Service Offerings Support the Entire Product Lifecycle

We work with our partners to help entrepreneurs, manufacturers, and distributors big ideas into technically feasible products. We do that by investing not only in our staff and equipment, but in the partnerships we build with our clients. We help our partners reach their goals by offering a wide variety of services to support the entire product development lifecycle, including:

Deformulation

Product deformulation analysis, also known as chemical reverse engineering, is the process of breaking down a product’s formulation to separate and determine the specific identity and exact quantity of its components. This vital process allows Avomeen to provide the formula and specifications needed to manufacture and improve the product or manufacturing process.

Product Reformulation

Product reformulation allows our team of experienced scientists to look at your existing formula and identify potential areas for improvement. Significant changes may occur to meet regulatory requirements, improve performance or even develop new, innovative products from an existing formulation.
