Starting Formulations

Colonial Chemical applications chemists are continually developing starting formuations that can be used in a variety of end-market applications. These are intended to promote new chemistries and market trends reflecting changing consumer demands. In many cases, our applications chemists demonstrate new formulations and prototypes for personal care products at industry trade shows, but the following formulary is not limited exclusively to exhibitions only.

These prototypes are also intended for use as starting formulas only and may be altered or modified as needed. All prototypes undergo stability testing.

Personal Care
Household and Industrial
Industrial Lubricants
Pet Care
Vehicle Care


Formula Girls is a weekly podcast that showcases a specific formulation developed and tested in the laboratories of Colonial Chemical.  This fast-paced podcast briefly covers the ingredients used, how they interact, mixing tips, and trends related to each formulation.  All formulations are lab-tested and both ready-to-use or provide a great starting point for your next formulation.
