NOT YOUR AVERAGE CONTRACT MANUFACTURER.
We want to help you build beautiful brands. That’s why, when we built Crafted, we made sure our customers’ interests and goals are at the heart of what we do, bringing to life those ideas that you write down but never see again. We’re a small team of Crafters, but we’re not short of talent and enthusiasm, and with a snazzy new manufacturing site, and an added sprinkling of dancing bottles, you’ve got yourself a more than average contract manufacturer. In a nutshell, that’s us. So, let’s get crafting and turn your big idea into a real-life thing.
“At university, I worked with a team to develop a combination of natural, non-steroidal ingredients that had a great anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on the skin. We wanted to get this active blend into a useable form so that it could be easily applied to reduce muscle fatigue in athletes, but we had very limited personal care experience within our group. We approached Crafted to help us develop a stable product that could be used as a muscle rub. They worked quickly to make it into a cream that they manufacture for us at their site. The product is now promoted and sold around the country, and helps runners and cyclists recover more quickly following a gruelling workout.”
WHAT'S OUR MAGIC FORMULA?
Well, we fuse our absurdly geeky know-how of molecules, compounds, and concoctions together with a flair for brand building. That leads to our alchemy (the clever bit), which is a knack for formulating opportunities for you the customer (even from the faintest whiff of an idea). Then, we add a hefty drop of passion into the equation and bam! Our concocters bring your chemical idea to life in the real world.
Brand Identity Developer
THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.
We’re a newish kind of business on a mission to stir things up in the chemical sector and shake a stick at the way new products are developed and brought to market. That’s why we’re making some mega plans for Crafted’s future and what we can offer our lovely customers. Soon you’ll see a brand-new side to our business, offering a library of formulations for your brand, all sent to your door in a couple of clicks (e-commerce if you haven’t already guessed). So, watch this space, things are about to be turned up a notch.
BRANDS, BLENDS, BRAINS. THAT'S US.
Our Crafted team isn’t just a bunch of chemists and marketers. Some of us (Adam and Lisa, our two directors) are commercial chemists with proven track records in product development and range expansion, growing successful businesses in personal care, homecare, and even industrial markets. We’ve got a huge network of lovely ingredient suppliers so we can offer a whopping collection of chemical raw materials to your brand, too. Skincare actives, hair conditioners, emollients, emulsifiers, or simple foamy wetters – you name it, we can source the lot. Champion.
LETS BRING YOUR BRAND TO LIFE.
Some people have a fully formed picture in their heads of what their brand will look like, some don’t. Luckily, our in-house team of brand designers know exactly what’s needed in personal care and home care branding and will work with you to get the packaging, logo, colours, words, graphics and pictures just right so that your customers fall in love with it, and the world needs more love so that’s a good thing.
“In developing my own skincare brand I didn’t fully understand the rules and regulations that I needed to follow before I could get my product to market. When working on my own this became a nightmare! However, Lisa and the team has helped to overcome the hurdles which has allowed me to concentrate on growing my online presence to further my brand ambition”
BUILDING A GOOD, HONEST BRAND.
When it comes to rules, laws and legal bits, it can be tough to navigate and know what’s what. So as part of the full product cycle, we're here to give you advice and guidance so that you meet all the necessary requirements, regs and legislation for the market you’re selling in. With that weight off your mind, you can focus on the nice bits. Like, making great products that people will love.
