Shower Gel & Shampoo Labels

Shampoo labels are the information printed on the packaging of a shampoo product that provides important details about the product, such as the ingredients, directions for use, warnings, and other relevant information.

By reading the shampoo label, consumers can make informed decisions about which shampoo product to choose based on their individual hair types, concerns, and preferences. The information provided on shampoo labels is regulated by government agencies to ensure safety and accuracy.

If you would like to test any of our quality materials, you can order a sample pack to get a feel of what material or adhesive works best for you:


Product name: The name of the shampoo or shower gel, should be descriptive and easy to understand.

Net volume: The volume of the product, typically measured in fluid ounces or milliliters.

Ingredients: A list of all the ingredients in the shampoo or shower gel, in descending order by weight. This may be required by law, especially if the product is intended for cosmetic or medicinal use.

Directions for use: Information on how to use the product, including any special instructions or warnings.

Manufacturer information: The name, address, and contact information of the manufacturer or distributor of the product.

Batch number: A unique identifier for the batch of product, which can be helpful for quality control and tracking purposes.

Expiration date: If the product has a shelf life, the expiration date should be clearly indicated on the label.

In addition to these required pieces of information, shampoo, and shower gel labels may also include optional information such as:

  • A logo or brand name
  • Fragrance information
  • Certifications (e.g. organic, cruelty-free, etc

Alternatively, we have Roll Labels

Roll labels are labels that are supplied in a roll form, with multiple labels printed on a continuous roll of material. Roll labels can be used for a variety of purposes, such as product labeling, barcode labeling, and packaging labeling.

Roll labels can be made from a variety of materials, including paper, polypropylene, and more, depending on the application and intended use of the label.

So why use a roll label? 

  • Customisation: Roll labels can be customized with a variety of designs, colours, and branding elements. This can help shampoo products stand out on the shelf and create a memorable brand image.
  • Information: Shampoo products often require labeling with important information, such as product details, usage instructions, and safety warnings. Roll labels can be printed with clear and legible text, ensuring that all necessary information is easily visible to consumers.
  • Convenience: Roll labels can be dispensed quickly and efficiently, making them ideal for high-volume shampoo production. This can save time and increase productivity in the production process.
  • Cost-effective: Roll labels can be produced in large quantities, which can help reduce the overall cost of labeling shampoo products. This can be especially beneficial for businesses that produce large volumes of shampoo products.


Label Sizing


The size of the label that goes on a shampoo bottle will depend on the size and shape of the bottle as well as the design of the label itself. Generally, the label should be large enough to display all required information, such as the product name, usage instructions, ingredients, and any regulatory or safety information, while still fitting comfortably on the bottle without being too small or too large.

Here are some common label sizes for shampoo bottles:

  1. 51 x 76mm: This size is commonly used for small shampoo bottles, typically with a capacity of 1-2 ounces.
  2. 54 x 102mm: This size is commonly used for medium-sized shampoo bottles, typically with a capacity of 8-12 ounces.
  3. 76 x 102mm: This size is commonly used for larger shampoo bottles, typically with a capacity of 16-32 ounces.

Labelling Materials for Shampoo and Shower Gel Products


Waterproof Polyester Labels

These waterproof polyester labels are fantastic for withstanding exposure to water and other liquids. The most likely storage of your shampoos and shower gels would be the bathroom too, so these labels would be an excellent choice if you want to keep your label in good condition.

Gloss Transparent Polyester Labels

Gloss transparent labels are also made from polyester plastic, making them great against water damage. They differ from a regular white polyester label, with their transparent clear look. This means you will be able to see your bottles through the label.

Gloss White Paper Labels

Gloss White labels are made from a paper material rather than plastic. However, they are more cost-effective and still give a premium appearance with their glossy sheen. If you did not need your label to be robust and waterproof, then gloss white labels might fit your product perfectly.

Matt White Paper Labels

Our most standard and cost-effective label choice. Our matt white paper label is a simple but elegant white label. If you just needed your information and branding printed, these labels are a popular go-to selection.
