How to Hire a Formulation Chemist

Formulation chemists are highly in demand today across industries such as cosmetics, food & beverage, medical devices, healthcare, nutraceuticals and more. Working with a freelance formulation chemist makes it easy to access the expertise you need to develop innovative, novel products. The freelance revolution has made it easier to access experienced formulation chemists who can help reduce time to market. 

What Services Do Formulation Chemists Provide?

In an organization, a senior formulation chemist or a junior formulation chemist will be in charge of developing or testing a new product. In the era of the gig economy, you can easily hire a chemist to make a product. Formulation chemists jobs need not even involve being present in house and full time. Thanks to the remote revolution, they can be based halfway across the globe and still be available for your project. Here are some of the services formulation chemists provide. 

A cosmetics formulation chemist can help with developing skin and haircare products that are shelf-stable, effective and safe. When you hire a cosmetic chemist, you can look for specific expertise that you might require, for e.g., experience with vegan or natural products, or experience with specific perfumes and flavours. A development chemist for skin care can help you develop lotions or make up, whereas a hair product chemist can help you create shampoos, serums, oils and other hair products. Freelance cosmetics chemists are growing in demand every day, and work with both big companies as well as small businesses to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving FMCG industry. 

  • A flavour chemist can help you create a new flavour or improve an existing one across products ranging from sauces to ice-cream.
  • A food formulation chemist can analyze the makeup of a food product and suggest ways to improve shelf stability, flavour, texture, and more.
  • A beverage formulation chemist can help with developing products such as protein shakes, health drinks, and aerated beverages.
  • A vitamin formulator can help with making nutraceuticals or pharmaceutical products in the form of pills, drinks, syrups or capsules. 

A freelance formulation chemist can have expertise in several different industries, especially if they have a chemistry or material science background. It is best that you review the applicant's work experience, education and portfolio to make the right decision. 

How to Hire a Formulation Chemist

To hire formulation chemists, you need to have the following things ready: 

  • Scope of work: List down what exactly you need to get done, along with any specific skills or experience you might require. You might need a cosmetic formulator for a personal care formulation, like a soap developer. Or you might need a freelance chemist to carry out formulation research and development, find specific ingredients or alternatives, and draw up a list of manufacturers. You may also need specialists who develop skin care or hair care products for specific ethnicities and skin types such as black cosmetic chemists.
  • Deadline & location: How quickly do you need to find a chemist? Do you need to find a formulation chemist near you? Are you looking to exchange physical samples or meet in person to go over recipes?
  • Budget: How much does it cost to hire a cosmetic chemist? The answer varies based on what kind of expertise you need and how quickly you need it. However a benchmark figure is that it can cost betweeen USD 500-USD 5,000. If you need someone to create a product from scratch it could cost more, however small adjustments to formulas or recipes can cost less than USD 1,000. 

On Kolabtree you can post your project for free and get a range of quotes from interested expert before you hire the freelancer that's best suited for your requirements. 

How to Hire a Chemist to Make a Product

Freelance chemists can accelerate the development of your product and take it to market quickly. From ingredients research and optimizing shelf-life to nutrition labelling and compliance, they can help you reduce time, effort and costs. You can hire a formulation chemist on an hourly rate on Kolabtree for ongoing support with your product development. If you have a fixed scope of work, you can work with a formulation chemist with defined deliverables and goals. 

Kolabtree's experts have worked with some of the world's biggest cosmetics, pharma and food companies including Unilever, Nestle, Pfizer, Wyeth, McVitie's, L'oreal, and more. Get quick guidance from them to take your next product to market with confidence.
