Something to think about

  • Know where the product is manufactured and be aware of the quality of the ingredients used in the formulation?
  • No one knows this new brand that you have labeled. Until the product is established, you will have zero brand recognition.
  • Are you responsible for packaging the product? Does it come pre-packaged? Who will label the product and what are the minimum orders available?

An informed decision

In this day and age, every business decision you make needs to be informed and highly researched. Your spa is unique and it is up to you to make the right choices to meet the needs of your clients. If you don’t offer the types of products clients and consumers want, you will be building a huge obstacle for your spa to overcome in these challenging days for small businesses, so spend a lot of time weighing the pros and cons ... it could make or break your business.
