FAQs

What is Private Labeling?

The concept of private label skin care involves selling quality skin care products to customers in a way that is both cost-effective and inline with your brand vision. This allows you to have complete control in creating your own customized products, thereby increasing trust with your customers and building your business’s reputation as a trustworthy service provider. 

To be effective, retailers such as yourself must select a trusted product manufacturer who will provide you with superior products, a quick turnaround time, and fair product pricing. Compared to a potentially large investment in contract manufacturing for product development, testing and much more, private labeling is easy, efficient and more affordable. 

Beauty Branding Lab is a private label manufacturing online platform to customize and create your own beauty products in just a few clicks. 
 

 

Why Should I Consider Private Label Skin Care? 

There are numerous private label skincare manufacturers across the world, but many are looking to work with larger brands with a starting order quantity of 3,000+ units per product. With Beauty Branding Lab we allow you to create your collection starting at just 24 pieces! Our easy-to-use model simplifies the process while offering a world-class customer experience and the quickest turnaround in the business.

While it is possible to create and customize products on your mobile phone, we recommend using your desktop or iPad for the best possible user experience.

Can I Speak with a BBL Team Member by Phone?  

BBL is a completely online platform. While we cannot offer phone consultations, we CAN answer any questions you may have via email and chat from 9 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday.   

Do You Accept Returns?

Due to the customized nature of our products, all goods are sold as a final sale.  However, we may accept returns and provide refunds, store credits, or exchanges for products purchased in the last 30 days in some circumstances:

 

  1. When a customer receives a product that is different from what was ordered

  2. When products are determined to be defective and photos proving proof of the damages can be provided.

  3. Other circumstances will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 

 

It is our policy to only accept returns of unopened, unused, and sellable items and only when accompanied by a pre-approved RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).  Requests for RMAs must be made through our customer service department and can only be accepted for orders under 30 days old. 

All returns must be shipped back using the return label provided by customer service. Returned products that are determined to be non-defective may be subject to a 20% rework fee.

Any items returned to Beauty Branding Lab without an accompanying printed Return Merchandise Authorization will not be eligible for refund.

Are Your Products FDA Approved? 

Cosmetics are not registered with the FDA, but the FDA regulates cosmetics and their labeling. Claims that intended to affect/change structure of skin, hair or body are considered drug claims by the FDA. Any product with these claims will be considered non approved drugs and selling non approved drugs is illegal.
 

 

Can I Sell on Amazon?

Yes, you can sell on Amazon. We have Certificate of Analysis (CoA) documents for your products that we can provide. 
 

 

Do I Need Product Insurance?

You do not need to obtain product insurance. If there is ever a liability claim or other legal dispute regarding the product’s formula, you may disclose that Beauty Branding Lab is the manufacturer of your products. Our insurance covers cases of a lawsuit regarding our products. If we produce a product that causes an issue with one of your customers, our insurance will cover our end if we’re named in the lawsuit.

We do recommend that customers obtain their own business insurance to protect them against any legal matters for their business.
 

 

What Information is Required on Product Labels? What is Compliance?

We go to the highest measures to ensure your products and their labels meet all FDA requirements and regulations. By doing so, our industry-leading quality and compliance team protects you.

When it comes to the label or product descriptions, we (Beauty Branding Lab or our customers) cannot claim that the product/formula makes a physical change to the skin, hair or body or affects the structure or function of skin, hair or body (this would be a drug claim). We can only claim that it changes the appearance of the skin and that products are for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance (since these are cosmetic claims).

Label requirements include:

  • Product Name

  • Fill Quantity

  • Directions

  • Distribution Information

    • Company or Personal Name

    • City, State & Zip

    • Email, Website or Phone #

  • Ingredients

How Does the Label Design Proofing Process Work?

This is a very simple and straight-froward process. Our platform allows you to create your label and review in real time. Once you are happy with the product label render, simply add to cart and complete payment. **Be sure to take time to review every aspect of your label design and the information included because once you have approved it, we go to print.  

Please note: Digital proof colors and actual printed colors may vary. This is due to screen monitors displaying colors differently than in person. Printed labels may appear darker due to inked paper versus a bright, illuminated screen. Our team ensures your labels will print as accurate as possible to your proofs. Using multiple screens may also vary the appearance of the label colors.
 

 

How Does the Manufacturing Process Work?

Once you create your label designs and complete your purchase, we will send your designs off to our in-house print team. Your labels will be printed using top-of-the-line laser printers on satin, matte labels. Once your labels are ready, our fulfillment team will label your products. 
 

 

How Long Does it Take to Receive My Order?

We pride ourselves not only on quality and support but also on efficiency. Our lead time is the fastest in the industry. Receive your custom-branded products in about 12 business days. This time may vary depending on your artwork, order size, and proofing process.
