What to Look for in a Private Label/Custom Manufacturer
Looking for a private label or custom manufacturer can be time consuming and confusing. You want a company who represents your fundamental values and those you intend to project to your customers. A company whose business practices align with your own. Different companies have the things they specialize in and are known for. But chances are, you want a company who has the ability to formulateand package your product according to your specifications and desires.

Vegan, Organic, Cruelty Free...What Does it All Mean?
I'm sure we've all heard these words, often interchangeably. However, if you're a frequent label reader, you understand they can mean many different things to each manufacturing company. You may wonder why they have any importance at all in the skin care world, but they do! Here are the differences in each of these terms.
- Vegan: When they say a product is vegan or vegan skin care, it means that it doesn't contain any products that are derived from animals, or the ingredients are derived from animals. Vegan products, however, can be tested on animals. This doesn't affect their vegan status in skin care terms.
- Cruelty Free: This term relates to the process of production rather than the actual ingredients. Cruelty free products haven't been tested on animals, however, they can contain animal derived products. This means a cruelty free product can contain ingredients such as: honey, beeswax, collagen, cholesterol, gelatin, carmine and lanolin. These ingredients are non-vegan but can still be considered cruelty free.
- Organic: When the term organic is used in relation to skin care, it could be easy to assume the same standards that apply to organic food also apply to skin care. Many products claim to be organic, however, they can still contain harmful toxins, pesticides and synthetic ingredients. At RainShadow Labs, when we utilize the term organic, we certify that ingredient or product is free from all harmful chemicals, toxins, GMOs and the health risks which are commonly associated with all these.
So, what is the best option in terms of skin care? What should you look for in a great skin care formula? At RainShadow Labs, we ensure each product we produce is cruelty-free and organic. Let's talk a little more about RainShadow Labs' products are the best of the best.
