Developing new ingredients and products in the beauty and personal care industry is exciting and complex. Ingredients and products go through extensive application, sensory and even microbiology testing to ensure only products of the highest quality make it to customers.

Technical teams in the personal care industry juggle multiple activities conducted through cumbersome, disconnected software that drains energy, stalls processes, wastes time, and leaves everyone frustrated. It’s hard to innovate and accelerate your work when the data you need isn’t easy to access, and other teams can’t see the relevant information about each project in their separate laboratory management systems.

That’s why Alchemy has built a modern lab management system that lets everyone involved with product development and application testing work in the same place.  We’re on a mission to help every beauty and personal care company make better products faster with easy to use software and AI-powered insights.
“We knew Alchemy would help us move faster by giving us all our data in one place.”
- Dr. Mari Granström, Chief Scientist & Co-Founder of Origin by Ocean
