Working with Freelance Formulation was exactly what my business needed. I was looking for a knowledgeable and professional company to formulate the products for my hair care line. Vanessa at Freelance Formulations not only helped to formulate amazing products that are currently selling well, but also had suggestions on packaging companies that I could use to reduce my overall costs. Now that is customer service.
