Cosmetic Product Labeling - Overview

A cosmetic product label is an important feature of a cosmetic product as it provides crucial information about the product. A cosmetic product is considered misbranded if the labeling is false or misleading and the required information is not stated prominently and clearly. Country-specific Health Authorities (HAs) regulate cosmetic product labeling to protect consumers from health hazards and deceptive practices.

A consumer can understand the key details, such as ingredients, directions for use, and product warnings from a product label. A cosmetic label provides an ingredient list and special warning statements on the label. Thus, it helps the consumer identify the ingredients which might be sensitive or allergic.

A cosmetic label allows the consumer to make an informed decision about the product they intend to purchase. Hence, besides being attractive, a label should also comply with the latest cosmetic product labeling requirements.

A cosmetic label typically includes the following mandatory declarations:

  • Ingredient List.
  • Net Content.
  • Product Identity.
  • Product Function.
  • Directions for Use.
  • Expiration Date.
  • Warnings.
  • Batch Number.

The information displayed on the label must be precise, and the key details must comply with the cosmetic labeling requirements of the target market. The information necessary to be displayed on a label differs from region to region. Therefore, it is imperative to comply with the region-specific cosmetic product labeling requirements.
