Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Lightning Labels, leader in printing custom labels and stickers, is providing businesses with advice when labeling lotion for winter. In cold weather, shoppers tend to increase their consumption of hand lotion and other body products that can soothe chapped and dry skin. Brands can prepare for the increase in demand by re-evaluating labels for beauty products and making certain they are up to par.
"The most important sales tactic for lotion bottles is providing consumers with the information they need to make educated purchases," said AnneMarie Campbell, Business Development Manager at Lightning Labels. "Customers want to know what ingredients are used in products and what effects they have. Leaving out crucial information can be a disincentive for shoppers."
Space on labels can be limited. Companies need to make sure they are including all relevant information succinctly and in a presentable way.
Use Health and Beauty Product Labels to Promote Skin Nourishing Properties:
Health and beauty product labels should provide relevant information about beneficial properties. At this time of year, most consumers are purchasing body products to ease the irritation of flaky, dry skin. Rather than emphasizing fragrance, it's a good idea to demonstrate how silky the epidermis will feel when this product is used.
Sometimes it's possible to communicate this information using imagery rather than words. Neutral colors can emphasize the comforting feel of lotion. Natural earth tones like brown, cream and green are all options. In addition, providing images that make consumers think of moisture can help get the point across. Depict water sources like tranquil lakes or show bright droplets so shoppers will know the product can ease the discomfort of dry skin.
Bath and Body Product Labels - Addressing Health and Environmental Concerns:
Many consumers have specific issues in mind when looking at bath and body product labels. Certain ingredients have been shown to cause negative health effects, while others have an impact on the environment. Some websites, like Environmental Working Group (EWG)'s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, are devoted to listing potentially dangerous ingredients in bath and body products. A high-risk warning in their database could potentially harm sales. If there's a way to avoid utilizing problematic ingredients, it may be best to find a new recipe. If that isn't an option, use label space to emphasize the product’s benefits.
Businesses that target eco-conscious consumers can identify specific ingredients on labels. Brands that do utilize natural ingredients can call attention to this fact graphically by including images of these identifiable components, such as shea nuts or aloe plants.
