Technical Laboratory and Product Concepts

At Surfachem, we don’t just deliver chemicals – we like to roll up our sleeves and get involved with creating our own product concepts too! We are industry experts in ingredient selection, formulation design and stability testing.

We’ve achieved this through constantly scanning the market to identify up-and-coming trends. In response to our findings, we create product concepts at our technical development laboratories, based at the 3MBIC. We also love to work with brands, and to support their growth. We have a great track record of helping brands, both established and start-ups, to develop their next generation of products.
