FAQ's

What are cosmetics labels?

The term cosmetics label refers to the stickers that are to be used on personal care and cosmetics labelling. For products such as shampoo, lip gloss, mascara, shower gel, hand cream, sun block and a myriad of other products.

Do cosmetics labels need to be waterproof?

It depends on the product, its uses and its ingredients. A product that is designed to be kept in a wet environment like hair conditioner will benefit from a waterproof label. Also some products have a high level of organic solvents such as hair serum so they might a little extra protection with laminated labels.

What are cosmetics labels made of?

Paper labels are perfectly adequate in many cases but sometimes a sticker needs to be extra robust due to the conditions the product will be used in or the volatility of the ingredients.

What needs to be on a cosmetics label?

Since many cosmetics are designed to be in prolonged contact with the skin and some are applied to sensitive areas like the mouth or eyes, there are a number of labelling requirements that must be adhered to like ingredients listing. For further information see our cosmetics labelling guide.

What needs to be on a personal care label?

Most personal care products are of the use-and-wash-off variety but they are subject to the same legislation as cosmetics labels, such as batch numbers, contact information and shelf life.

Do I need to put an ingredients list on a cosmetics label?

Yes. In the UK and the EU a list of ingredients is required in order of proportion of the whole product that they represent. This is true of the USA and many other nations, check locally if you are outside these areas.

What does a rabbit in a triangle symbol mean?

The leaping bunny mark is an indication that a cosmetic product reaches the standards set out by the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals, an organisation that ensures the welfare of animals in the formulation and production of cosmetics and personal care ranges.

What recycling symbols need to go on a cosmetics label?

Recycling symbols are not required on the labelling of this sort of product as the packaging itself is normally embossed already by the bottle or pot manufacturer.

What does the e on cosmetic products mean?

E stands for Estimated and signifies that the product weight or volume is an average across the whole production batch. So any individual unit may contain slightly more or slightly less than the stated amount.

What does a PAO symbol like 12M mean?

PAO stands for Period After Opening and indicates how long the product will remain effective once it has been opened. So 12M would represent 12 months. The range goes from 3 to 24 months.
