Who we are

RNA helps beauty brands build and grow by formulating, testing, and manufacturing personal care products that improve how people live, work, and play.

We offer full service turnkey contract manufacturing for brands, handling all the behind the scene work that goes into making amazing products, so brands can focus less on operational hurdles and more on innovation, marketing, sales, and their customers.

Our founder started RNA in 1983 as an R&D laboratory that allowed small and growing brands access to new and innovative formulations.

Since then, we've grown to a full scale manufacturing brand partner handling all aspects of the process from concept ideation, market testing, to manufacturing and fulfillment.

It is that same entrepreneurial spirit decades ago that still drives us today as continue to grow.

We take pride in the accomplishments of our client brands whose products are sold across the globe.

Quality

We only succeed when you succeed.

Modern consumers expect more, so we can only ensure success by making the best product possible. As a full service brand partner, we adhere to strict formulation guidelines, regulatory requirements, and continuous process improvement to ensure delivery of the best product. A focus on quality allows everyone to win, including the retail shopper that makes the decision to buy your brand's product.

Integrity

We protect what's most important to you.

Brand owners understand how difficult it is to maintain an edge in a competitive market. While we work with many clients on a multitude of projects, our team works diligently to protect confidential information. Approved formulations are kept consistent because we will not cut corners even in a volatile market. We do not switch chemical or packaging items without a thorough approval process or brand sign off. It is because of our dedication to integration that we've had strong brand partnerships for well over three decades.

Transparency

We are an extension of your team.

The best partnerships happen when both sides have information to make the best decisions. We communicate continuously on progress or delays, while offering our customers access to critical information through our customer portal - a real time view into finished goods inventory, customer supplied raw materials, and quality control statuses of recently made products. Our business goal is to ensure all parties in the supply chain win from our vendors to our brand partners to the retailer and finally the end shopper.

The work we do and love doing.

We produce documents for new product registration around the world including EU, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. We coordinate FDA testing for batch validation and active ingredients for over the counter formulations, and facilitate outside protocols such as HRIPT and SPF when requested.

Testing

We handle three critical testing functions in-house as part of the premium service offerings of our firm. Our facility has Analytical, Microbiological, and Quality Control testing labs. These labs handle all aspects of testing from chemical and packaging, to formula specs to ensure a consistent product is made. Our analytical lab also allows for HPLC, GC for OTC/CBD potency testing. We ensure batches are within COA specifications and test on-line for fill weight, closure torque, bill of material conformity, and many other quality metrics.
