BPI Labs’ Two Types of MOQ
BPI Labs splits its minimum order quantity into two categories.
Wet product is a category we use for product we would mix in a tank and pump into a transport vessel for filling. Wet can be anything from a thick, viscous material to a water based face serum. Digression: the word ‘viscous’ comes from the viscosity, which is the technical term our laboratory uses that means something like the ‘thickness’ of a liquid. BPI Labs has an MOQ of 110 gallons for wet product.
BPI Labs’ smallest stirring tank cannot reliably mix materials at anything less than 110 gallons. There is one exception, which is a nearly totally based oil product. A nearly 100% oil based product could be produced in as little as 55 gallons. If you’re wondering how many bottles or containers 110 gallons will fill, then you can use our calculator below to learn that answer.
Dry product at BPI Labs includes powders and salts. Bath salts, effervescent powders, and dry shampoo are all products that fit into this category. Our ribbon blending machines are used to create these products and they cannot be relied on to mix less than 1000 lbs. effectively. If you want to know how many containers of product 1000 lbs. will fill, then use our calculator below to learn that answer.
Our MOQ calculator works by providing it with an order size, a container size, and indicating either wet or dry product. On the basis of this information it’ll tell you how many units you would need to purchase to meet our MOQ.
The MOQ at BPI Labs is largely a matter of our ability to guarantee quality assurance on our production. BPI Labs was designed to scale very efficiently from a small industry MOQ to large production for customers who think their product will become popular quickly and need to scale fast.
