Enhancing people's lives through healthy skin.

Who we are

We are a dedicated team of scientists, product gurus, and manufacturing and logistics experts with over 50 years of experience developing and manufacturing personal care products for brands. Our in-house R&D, quality, manufacturing, engineering, and customer service teams are passionate about every little detail that goes into a successful new product, from ingredient selection to materials traceability and regulatory compliance. We know that product safety and transparency are critical to consumer health and safety as well as to the success of your brand.

Solésence products are formulated using our own mineral sunscreen actives, which are produced in our FDA-registered Chicagoland facility where we have been producing sunscreen actives — including the leading zinc oxide sunscreen active — to the personal care industry for the last 20 years.

We have minimum standards for all our products. We ensure that all products comply with current regulatory and safety requirements, including manufacturing and packaging under the FDA's cGMP standards. All of our products are cruelty-free and we are proudly listed on PETA’s “Beauty Without Bunnies” database.

Working with us

Fast solutions, custom product development, and digital project management tools.

Every Solésence product is patent-protected and contains our one-of-a-kind Active Stress Defense™ technology that boosts skin health by quenching and preventing free radical formation. As our partner, you'll also have access to our product marketing and customer education materials that support your product launch. Brand partners with customized white label or custom products will also benefit from our digital project management tools that streamline the product development process, speed up time-to-market, and ease your stress during production.


We know everyone is different — and that each brand has different needs dependent upon on your target timeline to launch, expected order quantity, and product requirements — so we offer four different paths to market. View this comparative chart to see the differences in our paths to market.
