Deformulation is the method of taking a formulated chemical product and separating it into its constituent components and identifying each compound and the quantity so that the end result is a “recipe” for the product.

Companies can have many reasons for deformulation of existing products such as checking a product for banned substances, confirmation of product identity, benchmarking or even competitor product reverse engineering.

The methods used to deformulate a product are varied and depend upon the type of product. At LPD Lab Services we have access to a wide variety of analytical techniques to separate and identify the components.

Our aim at LPD Lab Services is not only to provide the customer with a breakdown of contents of a product but also to provide a value added service, for example we can:

  • Make trial batches of the product if necessary (generally up to 100 litres) and / or advise the customer how to make it themselves safely and accurately
  • Give guidance on improving or altering the formulation to differentiate it from existing products or to give additional functionality
  • Advise on replacements and alternatives where a formulation contains banned or environmentally problematic substances

Please contact us to confidentially discuss your requirements with our staff and find out how LPD Lab Services can help you.
