You’re in good company. Hear from our past and current clients by reading our testimonials below.

I have been a customer of Monas Labs since 1998. We had an idea for a new sun care product and Charley was able to make it a reality and bring it to market. His team did such a great job designing our first item, 20+ years later it is still our best seller. The exact same formula is still going strong in 2020. Over the years we added many more items and had continued success all because Charley and his team were there for us. My company would not be where it is today without their help. Here is to another 20+ years of success. Mahalo Monas Labs you all are the best!
