Whether you’re planning to sell supplements or cosmetics, the FDA requires that you print out proper labels following strict format guidelines and standards in order to make your labels FDA-compliant. This process can be somewhat difficult until you learn about everything that it requires, and you’ll find you have to pay special attention to it, if you want your business to be a success.
In order to be compliant with FDA regulations, your extended content labels will have to contain certain specific information that the FDA requires all manufacturers and retailers to follow. For example, if you want to make it in the cosmetics industry, you will be required to include the name of the manufacturer and distributor, as well as their contact information or how to reach them. Additionally, you will have to add the exact weight of your cosmetic product in both standard and metric format, and you need to list all the ingredients by their standardized name and on a mandated type size label.
Of course, there are different guidelines in store depending on what you want to sell. For food products and supplements it is mandatory to include the accurate expiration date and the nutritional value, and for drugs you have to add information on known side effects as well as warnings against who shouldn’t use them.
