Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Cosmetic Labeler

A cosmetic labeler plays an important role in creating an eye-catching brand that will attract new consumers. The overall design and accurate application of the label can help to create a professional looking product that helps to reinforce and promote the brand. This makes a cosmetic labeling machine an important part of the production process.  

When it comes to finding the perfect cosmetic labeling machine, there are quite a few considerations to take into account. First, the FDA has outlined cosmetic labeling requirements that are designed to protect the consumer and discourage companies from deceptive practices. Consumers should be able to make informed decisions about which products they purchase. As a result, companies are prohibited from using the label to imply that the product has been sanctioned by the FDA.

The Basic FDA Cosmetic Labeling Requirements Include:
Clear identification of what the product is. Typically, any product that is applied to the human body with the intent of cleaning or beautifying is considered a cosmetic. Consumers should be able to quickly reference the label and learn what the product is and how it should be used
The net contents of the package of how much of the product is contained in the product.
List of ingredients. This is especially important to people with any allergies.
Warning labels. If there is any risk associated with using the product, this should be clearly printed on the label.
Cosmetic Tube Labeling Machine

From lipsticks and eyeliners to pencils and brushes, many cosmetic products are packaged in tube shaped containers. This can make it challenging to print and apply a wrap around label that contains all the necessary information and provides a tamper-evident opening. A label with a perforated edge is commonly used so that it is clear when the packaging has been opened. This is a simple way to protect consumers and still create an easy to open package. 

In some cases, a two piece label can be used to cover the front and back of the tube. Full-sleeves are another option that can be used to change the entire look of the bottle or tube. With both approaches to label application, accuracy and consistency is key. That is why cosmetic companies rely on tube labeling machines that can be precisely calibrated to automatically apply customized labels. 

Cosmetic Labeling Companies vs In-House Application

The cosmetic industry is a competitive one and new companies typically have to invest quite a bit of money to get their product to market. Manually labeling the products may seem like an easy way to reduce another cost, but it does come with some drawbacks. It may be difficult to keep up with demand if your production line isn’t up to speed. Even a semi-automatic labeling machine can exponentially increase productivity while costing less and requiring less space.

Another option would be to outsource this task to cosmetic labeling companies that offer contract packaging services. While this might be the right approach for some, it does come with logistical drawbacks. Essentially, you will have to insert another company and variable into your production line, which creates the opportunity for delays. This can also be an expensive way of automating the labeling process. In the long run, you will spend less by investing in an affordable and scalable cosmetic labeling machine that can be updated with expanded capabilities as your business changes.

Label Applicator Machine for Small Bottles

With cosmetics, only a small amount of product is applied at a time. That means that most products have a small net content, which requires minimal packaging. Unfortunately, small bottles and thin cylinders and tubes can present packaging and labeling challenges. As mentioned above, cosmetic labels must meet certain requirements and include specific information. In addition, handling and securing small bottles during the labeling process can be difficult, especially if you are doing it by hand.

Fortunately, there are label applicator machines for small bottles that are adept at handling the bottles and delivering a precisely placed label every time. Today’s sophisticated labeling machines can be programmed and calibrated to offer a customized labeling experience. It is even easy to switch from product to product as needed. Fully-automated applicator machines include touchscreens so that the users can make adjustments with just a few taps of the fingertip. You don’t have to be a machine expert to efficiently label small cosmetic bottles.

Cosmetic Label Applicator

When choosing the right cosmetic label applicator for your products, it is important to consider your production goals and the size of the machine. The best solution will be easily integrated into your current process and help improve efficiency and accuracy. There are compact semi-automatic options that are perfect for smaller work environments and fully-automatic solutions that can help to support large production goals. No matter what your labeling needs, there is an affordable cosmetic labeling machine that will help your business thrive. 

For small businesses, purchasing a cosmetic labeler machine can be a significant upfront investment. It is important to take a moment and think about cost versus value. For example, even with manual labeling, there is still the cost of employing someone to do the labeling. Using a labeling machine will cost less, especially in the long run, than paying an employee’s salary. Automating the labeling process also removes the opportunity for human error and helps to reduce waste. Perhaps most importantly, employees will be able to spend their time on more important tasks.
