Specialist Wet Wipe & Sachet Manufacturer

Labelling and Ingredients

All products must be labelled in accordance with the classification to which they fall under, for example Cosmetics, Detergents or Biocides. Depending on what your product is, Guardpack can help guide and advise on the information that is required on the packaging including information on ingredients, hazard symbols or warnings.

As the Brand Owner, you are legally responsible for ensuring your packaging adheres to the current regulations, at the time of placing your product on the market, as these regulations change it may be necessary to amend your labelling more than once. Artwork may be subject to a plate charge of £70.00 per colour.

An example below is some ot the information required on cosmetic products, which include the following:

  • A name and address of the Responsible Person, within the UK and European Union (if selling to Europe) of the where the Product Information File is held and available.
  • The full declaration of ingredients (see ‘ingredient labelling’); this includes any allergens present.
  • Where applicable, an indication of how long the product remains usable after opening or a ‘best before’ indication if the product is likely to deteriorate within 30 months of manufacture.
  • If the sachet is in an outer package (e.g. a carton) the labelling should also be on the carton. If there is no outer packaging the labelling will be on the sachet.

Please note, for Flow Pack Wipes the Period After Opening symbol should be displayed on the packaging with recommended use by period. For Wet Wipe & Liquid Filled sachets Guardpack manufacture with a minimum of a 3 year expiry, therefore these products are unlikely to deteriorate within 30 months, so the best before is not applicable. Please note however, all Guardpack products display an expiry date as standard. Guardpack will hold the Product Information Files and act as the Responsible Person (RP) for all products manufactured using our own established formulas, it is therefore necessary to include our UK & EU address on your packaging. Please see example of Sample Sachet Hand Wipe PDF for a Hand Wipe using Guardpack’s forumulation. Guardpack are unable to manufacture product where these guidelines are not followed. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure your product is up to date. Back to Cosmetic Regulations
