Cosmetic products are popular, quick-selling items in department stores and boutiques across the country. American consumers use lipstick, concealer, blush, bronzer, mascara, eye shadow, primer and various lotions and sprays every day. When someone is purchasing a cosmetic product, they expect a safe, high-quality, attractive item. These are the qualities a consumer will keep an eye out for when shopping for cosmetic products for personal use or as a gift.
The United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, is responsible for regulating the labeling and sale of cosmetic and personal products available on the market. All cosmetic products must be appropriately labeled according to the 1938 Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act as well as the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. Both of these regulations exist to prevent products from being labeled inaccurately or in a way that may be misleading to consumers.
Adhering to these regulations is especially important when manufacturing cosmetic products because these items are generally for personal use, and without the most efficient Product Lifecycle Management tool, that you can get from somewhere like CBX, you won’t be able to complete a full quality and compliance check of the product before it gets shipped to suppliers. If they are not labeled correctly, consumers could experience allergic reactions, or could unintentionally use a product that they didn’t want to purchase. For example, consumers who are very concerned with animal welfare will likely want to buy products that haven’t been tested on animals. This should be clearly labeled on the product so that consumers can make an informed choice when choosing cosmetic products.
In addition to being compliant with federal and state safety regulations, cosmetic product labels should be aesthetically pleasing and help to market your product to a wide range of consumers. There are many different styles that can be used in designing labels for a cosmetic product, from simple, transparent label designs, to intricate, colorful labels. The best choice sometimes depends upon the type of product you are marketing. For example, lipsticks tend to be smaller than blush palettes, so a label for a lipstick tube will probably have less space, and need to contain less wording so that it all fits on the label. A larger product, such as a bottle of lotion or a palette, will have lots of space on the label, so adding a graphic in addition to lettering may be appropriate. Some other things to keep in mind:
