I am part of a small business that was struggling for many years with labs that failed to meet our needs, hindering our ability to grow. After an extensive search for a new lab, we came across Shay, who we since learned are brand owners themselves who also had problems with the labs they used. Their solution was to buy their very own production facility and dedicate the unused capacity to manufacture for other businesses like ours. We liked the fact that they are brand owners and would be able to identify with us and understand our needs.Since we started working with Shay several months ago, they have helped us improve our formulas by working closely with us to ensure we get them right. They have also kept their word with production time estimates. In fact, they have beaten them every time so far.I'd recommend Shay Labs to any brand owners looking for a friendly, reliable lab that will understand what you need to grow your business and help you succeed in your mission.

Shay offers a wide range of cosmetic products and can customize according to your needs. Jessica and the rest of the Shay labs team deserves a 10/10. They are very professional and responsive to all our questions. Found a manufacturer-partner for life!

Met the team a few years ago, before Shay Labs and I didn't even realise the problems in the manufacturing industry until they started pointing out the gaps throughout my journey.A team of killer brand builders, who had their fair share of exits, ups and downs, been through difficult times and smooth sailings, always pushed through, no challenge could have stopped them.These hard times often happened because of the suppliers provided their products for them, so they decided to do something about it and approach with a different strategy: transparency.For themselves. For the community. For other brand owners.Through that, Shay Labs is going to revolutionise the private label industry - and not only from a professional perspective.Haven't seen a team with more kindness, integrity and honesty, than Tim, Shay, Pam, Jess, Jeremy, Junior and literally every single person from the team.HIGHLY recommend working with them.
