Use Cosmetic Labels to Give Your Product Packaging a Glow Up

Make your product packaging more attractive and eye-catching by using cosmetic labels. Whether it’s a moisturizing cream in a jar or a makeup subscription box, your cosmetic products can benefit from custom printing labels that can grab the attention of your customers. You can also use these labels to provide important information such as ingredients, company name and address, instructions on how to use your product and where to store it, your brand’s social media handles, and more.

Our cosmetic labels come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate most types of cosmetic packaging. They are also available in waterproof materials, so they can last for a long time even when regularly exposed to water and moisture. If you want your cosmetic labels to really stand out, we recommend creating your own design that matches your brand personality. Aside from applying these labels to your product packaging, you can also use them as giveaways during events or seasonal promotions.

What Do You Need to Include in Your Cosmetic Labels

Cosmetic products are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The agency also has labeling requirements that you need to follow when creating cosmetic labels or packaging.

Labeling Claims.

Make sure your labeling claims are not misleading and can provide reliable, crucial information for your customers. Some of the most commonly used labeling claims include organic, vegan, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free or not tested on animals, and alcohol-free.

List of Ingredients.

Use cosmetic labels to provide a list of ingredients in your cosmetic or beauty products. Remember to arrange the ingredients in descending order of predominance.

Expiration Date.

Ensure the safety of your customers by adding expiration dates on your custom cosmetic labels. There are no regulations that require you to do so, but this information will be greatly appreciated by consumers as it relates to their safety.

Other details that you may add to your cosmetic labels include:

  • Name or illustration that specifies the nature and use of your product
  • Net quantity of your product measured by weight or numerical count
  • Complete address of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor
  • “Distributed by” statement if you are not the manufacturer of the product
  • Warning and caution statements

Cosmetic Labels Q&As

What’s the difference between cut-to-size and roll cosmetic labels?
Cut-to-size cosmetic labels are individually cut and made to be peeled and applied by hand. They are ideal as handouts and for labeling a small number of items. Roll cosmetic labels, on the other hand, are rolled on a standard 3” core, which is compatible with most standard label dispensers. Compared to cut-to-size labels, roll labels are faster and easier to apply.

Do you offer your cosmetic labels in custom shape?
Yes, we do. Just select Custom Shape in our product calculator if you want to use a unique shape for your cosmetic labels. We also offer several popular label shapes including square, rectangle, arch, hexagon, circle, oval, and starburst.
