Beauty and Cosmetic Labels
These beauty and cosmetic labels often include images and various font types and sizes. The way in which these products are presented is usually a reflection of the brand name, price point and also target customer.
Cast your mind back to the last time you were in the cosmetic section of a department store, supermarket or even a chemist. You’ll have noticed that beauty and cosmetic products come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and styles. They’re packaged in boxes, sleeves, flexible pouches, or some products stand alone, with all of the information about them printed on an attached label. Every single product will have a label which will represent the product and brand whilst communicating information on how to use or apply the contents.

Depending on your product branding, the price point it's sold at, the volume or scale in which it is distributed and of course how popular the brand or product is, each material type will have its own advantage, especially if you’re trying to achieve something specific. For example, a skincare brand may opt for a more clean, clinical style housed in a small jar with crisp white labelling. Whilst a body scrub aimed at a younger market may be packaged in brightly coloured tubs with vibrant eye-catching labels.
You may opt for one label, a wrap-around, peel and reveal label to communicate everything you need, or decide to use multiple labels, for example one for the front, and another for the back of your product.
There are various material types suitable for beauty and cosmetic labels including:
- White Polypropylene (PP)
- Silver Polypropylene (PP)
- Clear Polypropylene (PP)
- White Polyethylene (PE)
- Matt Paper
- Semi-gloss paper
- Craft paper stock
There are guidelines attached to any products with a chemical content, and it’s important to understand what information is required on your beauty and cosmetic label. It must include:
- The official product name
- The generic term for what the product is, for example, perfume
- The scent - if applicable
- The colouring or shade - if applicable, for example, make-up or lipstick colour shade
- Any colouring additives. This can be covered off by the use of the term “may contain”
- Instructions on use
- Name and address of the manufacturer

Beauty and cosmetic products come in different shapes, sizes, materials and in so many different environments, e.g., a tube of cream which might be carried in a handbag, a pot of powder in a makeup case, bottle of hair dye in the bathroom cabinet, packet of bath salts by the bathtub, tub of body scrub kept in the shower. So, deciding on label type has many things to consider from the design, shape and adhesive type to make sure it’s durable.
