Directions for use
These are currently not a legal requirement in Australia however are in the EU and considered best practice.
We recommend Ultra Labels to print your labels. In our experience they provide the best quality labels at very competitive prices. Their labels stick very well whereas in our experience other labels do not stick as well and can bubble and peel over time. We recommend their PP Silver labels with a gloss laminate. They already have the die for most label sizes which saves you money.
Also note we do not apply the labels to the bottles. We will supply the final packaged product that will need to be labelled by you.
Screen printing your label design directly onto their bottles as opposed to applying a label offers a more high end, streamlined look, which is another option available to you.
Product advertising includes labels, packaging, and marketing material thus you should be aware of your legal requirements to make sure you do not breach any regulations. Good advertising of cosmetics ensures that the person knows that the product is a cosmetic and not a therapeutic good.
You cannot make any false or misleading claims nor make any Therapeutic claims.
Typically a cosmetic may change the appearance or odor, cleanse, condition, maintain or protect the body. They affect appearance rather than the substance of skin. A therapeutic claim would be to prevent, cure or alleviate an issue. A therapeutic claims would also include it regulates or increases the production of collagen for example.
We have more detailed information in the Members section of this website for our customers which outlines the various Cosmetic Regulations in Australia as well as Advertising and claim substantiations Regulations so as a brand owner you are fully informed of your legal obligations.
