Frequently Asked Questions
Can lead time be shortened?
In some cases, we can fill orders within 8 weeks, but absolutely no quicker and 8 weeks is not guaranteed. During the busy production season (January-May), lead-time can not be shortened. We DO NOT start production until we receive your 50% deposit AND label art. Lead-time is 10-12 weeks from the day production starts. Our non-SPF products have shorter lead times since there is no FDA testing and approval involved.
What does the batch fee go towards?
The batch fee covers FDA registration ($850) for SPF products, labels, labeling, bottles, caps, and filling.
Can I print my own labels?
Yes, but it does not change any costs.
What are the bottle options?
We can source any bottle option. Please refer to www.sks-bottle.com & www.containerandpackaging.com if you are researching options. Tubes are available at a 10-15K piece minimum and alone have a 12 weeks lead time.
How do I handle the artwork?
Once you decide on your bottles, we will send you a label template for the front and back. The front label does not have any requirements. The back label has a number of requirements by the FDA for SPF products. We will instruct you on these requirements. We will not start production on your order until we have final artwork. Label sizing cannot be altered.
Where can I find the ingredients lists for the products?
You can find all our ingredients lists on our website: www.mexitan.com on the individual product pages. You will need these for your label artwork. If you do a custom formula, we will provide you with the ingredients list once the formula is finalized and approved.
Can I modify the formulas?
No but we can create a custom formula for you at a 5-10K piece per sku minimum. SPF products require UVA/UVB, water-resistance, and stability testing. The total for these tests cost roughly $8K per SPF formulation. Our custom formulas stretch far beyond our Mexitan sun and bug products. We can do face, baby, hair, and body care products. If you have an idea in mind, let’s discuss!
How do I get barcodes unique to my private labeled products?
You can easily go to: www.nationwidebarcode.com and purchase barcodes to use on your labels. 1 barcode costs $9. 5 barcodes cost $20 and so on...
Will there be an expiration date stamped on my products?
Yes. All Mexitan products have a 3-year shelf life.
Is shipping included in the total cost of my order?
No, shipping is not included however we will work with you to find the most efficient means of shipping and arrange it for you. FOB is Miami, FL.
What do I expect to receive with an SPF order?
The FDA requires all SPF to go through testing to validate its SPF level. We will provide you will the FDA batch registration and SPF approval paperwork for your order.
What if I need to cancel my order after production starts?
You can cancel your order, however your 50% deposit is non-refundable.
When do I pay the balance of my order?
Once your order is complete, we will contact you for the remaining 50% balance. We will not ship your order until final payment is complete.
