Manufacturing

From lab bench to manufacturing floor, Ariel Laboratories adheres to the highest standards of compliance and quality. We provide on-site manufacturing for products representing most major cosmetics, as well as skin care and sun care products. Manufacturing is rigorously monitored via computer controls throughout the entire process, and automated temperature controls ensure complete stability to the manufacturing environment. Tracking is performed from the moment that raw materials enter our facility, throughout the manufacturing process, packaging, and on to distribution.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

Ariel Laboratories is fully compliant in Good Manufacturing Practices, and prides itself on the consistent delivery of high quality product. Clients are always welcome to inspect our processes, and Ariel Laboratories maintains an open-door policy to accommodate on-site visits. Please don’t hesitate to ask.

OTC Management

OTC & SPF drugs are produced at Ariel under close scrutiny by the United States Food & Drug Administration. Ariel is registered with the FDA. Compliance is a daily task, involving ongoing long term studies and record-keeping to assure that the dose of delivery is reliable from batching, to packaging, to long term stability in the package itself.

Sanitization

Every kettle, utensil, filling line and all other systems have a sanitization procedure that is followed according to protocol and documented into a log for every batch made. This log is open to scrutiny and may be a matter of record should a look back be required. This is all part of Good Manufacturing Practices.

Filling and Assembly

Filling and Assembly is done according to the specifications set for each product. Both production managers and the in-house mechanical teams have years of experience and professional know-how to assure the proper completion of each production run.

Quality Assurance

Our Quality Assurance (QA) team is comprised of skilled and highly trained individuals in every aspect of the cosmetic manufacturing process. In our labs, batches are measured and tested to assure that they meet product specifications. All batches are sampled for Microbiological contamination. OTC batches are assayed to assure that all the active ingredients are present in the levels as designed to meet precise specifications. The production lines have their own team of QA people that sample products as they are filled to assure consistent fills, labeling and packaging specifications. The entire facility is periodically swabbed and checked microbiologically, to assure the reasonable microflora of the environment. All this is performed to maintain control and to record each and every lot of product produced at Ariel Laboratories.
