ABOUT US

The Science of Success

Allure Labs has been quietly providing industry leaders with science,
expertise, and manufacturing support for nearly 3 decades.

Your Brand’s Secret Superpower

The industry’s leading brands are quite familiar with Allure Labs and its founder, 
Sam Dhatt, a gifted and accomplished chemist who has driven and led innovation for the skincare industry for decades.

His passion and abundant curiosity leads Allure’s formidable R&D in pioneering the use of potent new ingredients that drive industry trends and fuel consumer demand – providing a distinct advantage to astute clients.

Dhatt was one of the very first to formulate with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), as well as Glycolic Acid, and the very first to introduce Matrixyl into formulations. 

Over the course of nearly 30 years, Dhatt has developed leading over-the-counter (OTC) and non-OTC products for over 700 clients worldwide. We won’t say which ones, but many of the most popular skincare products available today began their life at Allure Labs.
