Product development and contract manufacturing
On this page we describe the first part in the process of how we realize our clients product ideas, the product development. Do you want to read about the manufacturing part of the process directly? Click here!
Expectations and production specifications
When you come to us you may have the beginning of a product idea or maybe you have come so far that you already have a finished product. When you meet your dedicated Key Accont Manager you will go through your ideas, plans and wishes. We discuss any questions you may have about the product development, legislation and regulations or perhaps the production process. If necessary you will also be able to meet specialists in these areas. We will together fill in a product specification where you summarize your products charachetristics, claims and of course what you don't want in the product. Already here we discuss your thoughts about the final product packaging. We do this so that we can develop a prototype that reflects and lives up to your expectations. Once we have documented your expectations and product ideas and you confirmed that we understood everything correctly, we will send the specification to our innovation and product development team!
One of our chemists takes your product specification and starts to create the formula for your unique product. Paragon Nordic has experienced product development experts within styling, haircare, personal care, sunscreen, household products, industry, carcare, pharma and food that can help you develop a product that meets your expectations and requierments. In the product development phase, we take into account the claims you specified in the product specification. Raw materials are chosen in accordance with your specifications and current regulations. We also take into account and monitor future regulations for raw materials to make the transition to new regulations as smooth as possible. Once your product has been created, a prototype will be sent to you for your feedback and approval.
Environment and sustainability
Sustainability and the environment are key factors in the formulation of your product. Our product developers have knowledge and experience working with for example organic, vegan, gluten-free and natural raw materials, and also work with factors such as raw material safety in relation to the user and the environment when formulating your product. They also collaborate with environmental and regulatory experts to together find the best options for your product and early take on questions about, among others, registrations and certifications in the process.
Throughout the process of working with your product, we consider the product's environmental impact. We look further than raw materials and also take in factors such as production and packaging components in. Read more about our management systems and certifications here!
Quality & Product Safety
Our management systems and certifications control the work we do in all parts of the company. It is a systematic way of planning our work that focuses on the environment, quality and continuous improvement, but also high standards of hygiene, safety and product safety.
Our customers and the end consumer can always feel safe when using products developed and produced by us. We not only work in accordance with, but also exceed, the high demands placed on us from regulations, certifications and Läkemedelsverket regarding environment, health, raw materials and safety. When formulating your product, we thereby fulfill your visions by choosing raw materials that you and your consumers can feel safe about.
Packaging & design
The content of a product is important but so is the packaging. Not only for design purposes but also for product performance. Together we will look at different types of packaging components, maybe in a meeting or we will look at different options in our packaging lab, CloudPack. Here you can experiment with shapes, materials and sizes together with experts to help you find an optimal package for your products function and appearance. You can then go home and develop your brand's unique design. We will be happy to advice and assist you in questions regarding for example legislation, printing areas and other questions that may arise.
During the development phase, a number of product tests are conducted to ensure the quality of your product, including testing that ensures that the product meets the demands you desire for your product. We also offer stability tests that ensure that the product maintains quality and function its expected lifetime.
