Cosmetics are in high demand today. In order to survive in such a competitive industry, cosmetic companies must have attractive packaging. Just as important, however, is the product packaging convenience, safety, and ease of use. Manufacturers must make their packaging eye-catching for retail shelves and accessible to the right people. The most effective cosmetic packaging makes brand information clear while simultaneously meeting federal package regulations.
If you are unsure what federal packaging regulations are, or you do not think your packaging meets these requirements, talk to us at Child Related Research. We make it easy to stay compliant with federal child-resistant and senior-friendly package testing guidelines.
Federal Laws Surrounding Cosmetic Packaging
Consumer trust is what keeps a cosmetic company profitable and reputable, and this trust is gained through the proper manufacturing of safe product packaging. Earning customer trust is difficult, but getting it back after making a costly safety mistake is virtually impossible. You can prevent your business from ever losing trust by following current regulations on product packaging and safety, which can be found here.
By law, the cosmetic industry is required to make packaging that keeps toxic chemical compounds from being easily ingested by children, but it also must be intuitive for adults to open. Under the FD&C and FPLA Acts, cosmetics must also be properly labeled accurately and completely with the following information:
The intended use of the product
A list of ingredients
Any necessary warnings
A distributor statement
The name and place of distribution
The net content
The better you follow these regulations, the more your company image and sales will flourish.
