Nectarine provides you with premium formulas, perfume and essential oils, plus a variety of packaging options to create your own line of fragrance, bath, face and body care. Nectarine does not offer logo label design and printing services. For your convenience, we offer generic back ingredient labels that are printed in black on clear label stock, and that describe the product and show its FDA required ingredient listing. You may chose to use these on the back of your packaging, or to design your own.
Before designing and writing the copy for your logo labels, take a look at these helpful websites and suggested printing companies:
LABELING RULES & REGULATIONS
Please note that Nectarine is not a regulatory agency. It may be therefore useful to have an outside agency review your labels and label claims to ensure full compliance of the law.
FDA & Cosmetic Label Requirements
All bath and body care labels must comply with the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) requirements. The FDA's website (www.fda.gov) offers a really helpful cosmetic label manual that explains their requirements in details.
Organic Label Requirements
The FDA has a lot of helpful information on their website regarding who oversees organic label requirements for cosmetics. You can read more by following this link:
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) regulates the term "organic" and oversees all organic labels including those for the cosmetics industry. Before designing and writing your copy for your organic bath and body care labels, read their guidelines carefully to comply with US regulations.
This is a wonderful do it yourself option when starting out. They offer many different label sizes with templates you can easily download into your Word software program or many other programs. They also have an easy to use design wizard if you prefer to put together your label that way. And you get to print your labels to your own inkjet and/or laser printer. We suggest using their waterproof label stock as the ink won't smear if it gets wet.
For basic yet professional looking labels without big minimums and tricky graphic design formats, this website offers custom label printing options in many different sizes and an easy to use design wizard that lets you design your label and pick your colors right off their website. For bath and body care products, they recommend using their Poly label materials - available in clear, white and more colors.
If you are going to have your label professional designed and are going to be printing more than 4 colors, this short run label printer has experience printing for the bath and body care industry and does not have huge minimums. Talk to them about their suggested label stock for bath and body care products (to prevent ink and/or label paper from being damaged when used in the shower or bath.) We recommend always getting a proof before going to press to catch any typos or errors before it's too late.
