Lip Balm Labels

Lip balm is a must-have for many people, constantly emerging from purses and pockets to ease chapped lips.

Lightning Labels’ durable labels are a perfect fit for your lip balm tubes, tins and pots, whether for sale, gifting or as stand-out swag at events.

Lip Balm Labels

Lip Balm Labels is one of those never-leave-home-without products, slipping out of purses and pockets throughout the day to soothe chapped lips. The label needs to be sleek and professional to match this portable product, while keeping up with regulatory requirements. Because of the confined space on lip balm containers, it is important to choose a label material that will allow you to work with regulations while staying attractive and clear. Pressure sensitive labels are perfect for this type of container because they stick to the tube with a strong adhesive without peeling up, giving you the freedom to customize your label and still maintain compliance.

You must set aside one panel on the container for the ingredient list, listing them in order of weight with colorants at the end of the list. Other regulatory requirements include a statement of identity, directions for use, warnings and manufacturer information.

Custom printed lip gloss and balm labels are also great for gifting, party favors, or as stand-out swag items at events like conferences or trade shows. Print your lip balm or gloss label with a glossy or UV finish to keep it looking fresh and vibrant for the long-term, or choose a laminate finish to add extra durability. We can even add a safety seal to ensure your balm or gloss is not tampered with in transit.

Types Of Balm Labels

Whether you are printing labels for your own lip balm products or need to label a product made by someone else, the proper design can make the difference between a professional look and a mediocre one. The first step is to decide what size the label should be, which is typically based on the size of the container and the amount of information you want to include. You should also physically measure your container with a flexible ruler to be sure that the label you order will fit it correctly. The type of label material is another important factor to consider. The best materials are durable and water-resistant, and can withstand repeated handling. They are also free of dyes and chemicals that can damage the lips. Some materials are even laminating, providing additional protection from ink smearing, label tearing or scratching, and extreme temperatures.

Depending on the ingredients and how your balm is used, it may be classifiing as either a cosmetic or a drug under FDA regulations. The ingredients must be listing on a single panel on the product’s packaging and should use standard names in accordance with the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients. Medicated lip balms usually come with a printed information card, rather than a separate label on the container itself.

Methods Of Lip Balm Labels

Labels for lip balm are often appliing to tins and jars, but there is also the option to use labels for tubes. Tubes are especially unique because they are carriing around in bags, backpacks, and pockets. This means that they are exposing to a lot of people, and it is important to make sure that the label design catches their attention. A good way to ensure that your lip balm labels stay on is by priming the container surface. This done with a fine sandpaper or emery cloth, and will help the label to adhere better. Also, it is important to make sure that the lip balm containers are clean before applying the label. This will help to avoid any potential issues with the adhesive.

Another key aspect of lip balm labels is that they must comply with FDA regulations. This includes having a Principal Display Panel (PDP) that covers 40% of the height multiplied by the circumference of the container. It also needs to include a statement of identity and quantity. Additionally, the PDP must be clear enough to read. The best way to achieve this is by using white glossy polypropylene (BOPP) label stock, which provides excellent clarity and flex-crack resistance. This is also a great choice for tube labels because it will help the label to stick better to the curved surface of the tube.
