Custom cosmetic labels can be used on a multitude of beauty products such as lip balm, lotion, soap, shampoo, conditioner, essential oils, and make-up.  Ordering custom printed labels from GCI is one of the best investments you can make in growing your business. Labels are an important marketing tool, and can make or break the success of your Health and Beauty Aid (HBA) product line. To get professional results from your marketing efforts, you need quality product labels.

Labels for cosmetic products have to be durable due to repetitive handling of the product container yet also be attractive enough to draw the consumer’s attention.  GCI can help you with label designs  to work with your container’s size, shape and the product’s expected life span.   

There are many options for both white and clear durable materials used for cosmetic labelling.  Clear  materials offer several design options which offer a sophisticated look without blocking the view of the product inside.

Things to Know About Cosmetic Labels

According to the law, the manufacturer or distributor (by name) needs to be identified on the cosmetic label and provide a way for the customer to contact them.

The ingredients in the cosmetics need to be listed on the label in the order that they appear in the formula and identified by their botanical name.

The Department of Weights and Measures requires the actual weight of the cosmetic product both in standard and metric to be disclosed on the label.

Any cosmetics sold in the U.S. are required by the FDA to be labeled with its INCI names, however most consumers that buy cosmetics often forget to read the label and know little to nothing about the products they’re putting on their skin. INCI is an acronym that stands for International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients, a system of names for ingredients, botanicals and chemicals used for the manufacture of cosmetics and personal care products.
