But while trying to catch the consumer’s eye, there are still regulations products must follow. So how can you make your custom cosmetic labels both attractive and effective?
First Things First: Product Requirements
Regardless of your product line, you need to be aware of the industry requirements.
According to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, it is prohibited to market cosmetics that are adulterated or misbranded as well as while in interstate commerce.
FDA regulations are required for any product, except soap, intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness or altering appearance.
A cosmetics label is considered misbranded if:
- labeling is false or misleading
- label does not state the name and address of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor or the net quantity of contents
- the required information is not stated prominently, with conspicuousness and in terms that it is read and understood by consumers under customary conditions of purchase and use the container or its fill is misleading

Make Compliance Easier
Ensure products meet all FDA regulations and easily maintain labels with an in-house label printer – this includes overseas, certifying compliance within each country.
Printing in-house also offers a much more affordable option compared to outsourced printing.
By printing in your facility, you have the ability to produce large or short runs of labels as needed with expiration dates, ingredients lists, allergen warnings, barcodes, organic and natural certifications.

Make Sure Your Products Have What They Need
In addition to FDA requirements, environmental exposure can require a higher need for durability.
If you offer lotion, body wash or facial cleansers, you may want to consider a printer that applies water-resistant labels. This will help protect your labels fading or peeling.
Utilizing these resistant labels will bring your products to another level of professionalism. By adhering to both FDA standards and product needs, your cosmetics will perform effectively.
Watch how CJ’s Unique Boutique uses their durable QuickLabel printer to label all of their lotions and creams:
Stand Out On The Shelves!
Looks matter in this industry.
Makers of cosmetics and personal care products don’t just need a lot of labels – they need a lot of different labels. One body lotion alone can be available in dozens of different scents, array of bottles, tubs and more.
Your product packaging is what makes you stand out from the competition. What catches eyes on the shelves can be the difference between the purchase of your brand over a competitors.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to enhance your cosmetics label designs, an in-house label printer is the best solution.
Not only will printing cosmetics labels in-house save money, but it is perfect for short-runs of seasonal products, new scents, sizes and formulations – especially when it comes to the design process.
Using your own label printer will allow you to control your label from start to finish – making sure it showcases your product as envisioned.

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.
A trusted partner in the essential oils industry, doTERRA defines essential oils as naturally occurring, aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.
For hundreds of years, essential oils have been used for medicinal, beauty and cleaning treatments. So how can you make your oils stand out from the rest?
1. We Make Label Creation Simple
We know that makers of essential oil products don’t just need a lot of labels – they need a lot of different labels.
Instead of dealing with the hassle of an outside printing vendor, with the risk of costly re-prints, overstock, delayed shipments or wasted expenses, we give you the ability to control everything in-house.
Our in-house commercial label printers print labels in any quantity. They are perfect for short-runs of seasonal products and ideal for printing custom labels for new scents, sizes, and formulations. That means growing your line of essential oils doesn’t have to be difficult. With a QuickLabel printer, you can start printing off your new scents as soon as they are designed.
What’s more, our printers are designed to be user-friendly and specifically designed for narrow labels.
That means you can focus on creating beautiful aromas, and we can take care of the rest.
2. We Meet All Labeling Rules & Regulations
As you know, being a producer of personal care products in the USA, your essential oil labels must comply with the FDA standards.
With a QuickLabel printer, you can print ingredients lists, allergen warnings, barcodes, organic and natural certifications on demand; ultimately giving you the advantage of keeping up with the constant changes being made to label requirements as they go into effect.
We’ll help keep you one step ahead and easily producing FDA-compliant labels.
