The Important Bit

LABEL REQUIREMENTS

Whether you use our designs, or your own, the following information must be displayed on the final product’s outer packaging.

  • Product name & function (eg body scrub)
  • Batch number (Supplied with your paperwork, make sure you write this on the labels)
  • Full ingredients including allergens and INCI name
  • Usage & storage instructions and warnings
  • Quantity in grams (g) or millilitres (ml)
  • Period-after-opening (PAO) symbol
  • The correct Responsible Person (RP) statement (see below)
  • Country of Manufacture (Made in the UK 🇬🇧)
If you are designing your own labels, you will need to send us clear images of the final packaging for our records. This is a legal requirement for cosmetics sold in the UK/EU.
 

 

SELLING IN THE UK & EU

Our products are ready to sell across the UK and EU as they comply with UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations.

Our qualified chemist has approved every formulation with a Cosmetic Product Safety Report.

All formulations, labelling and product information is uploaded by us to the CPNP (EU) and SCPN (UK).

For this reason you don’t need any documentation to sell our products, and we reserve the right to remain the ‘Responsible Person’ both in the UK and EU.

Please see below to ensure you list the correct details to ensure UK and EU Compliance.

RESPONSIBLE PERSON STATEMENT

The Responsible Person is a legally designated person, who is responsible for ensuring products meet the necessary legislation.

Being the RP is admin heavy and requires technical knowledge, so we do all the work for you.

All you need to do is include one of the following RP statements on your packaging/labels.

Selling in the UK Only

RP: W L BOTANIST LTD, UNIT 12, NR6 6BW

Selling in the EU Only

WANT A DISCRETE RP STATEMENT?

We understand it’s important for you to keep your supplier confidential.
