Cosmetics & Personal Care

Labeling, Coding, and Marking for Cosmetics and Personal Care Products and Packaging

Cosmetics and personal care items are among the fastest growing industrial sectors globally. In this highly competitive market, manufacturers are looking for ways to differentiate their products through innovative packaging to enhance brand image.

ID Technology offers a range of solutions from inkjet and laser coders for coding high precision 2D DataMatrix and other barcodes at high speeds on a wide variety of packaging formats and materials. Our solutions ensure clear codes to meet retailer demands while allowing manufacturers to comply with industry regulations.

The need to create appealing packaging that stands out on crowded store shelves and grabs consumer attention requires coding and labeling technologies that can print reliably and legibly on many different package shapes and sizes without impacting the package design. Common challenges include:

  • The rise of "eco-friendly’ packaging means using more sustainable packaging formats, such as easy-to-recycle glass or plastics.
  • Innovative container shapes and metallic and other unique inks to enhance packaging appeal can create coding complexities.
  • Product variety among brands to attract a broader market requires production line flexibility and fast product changeovers with minimal downtime.
  • Counterfeit goods and product recalls due to contamination means manufacturers must effectively track their products through the supply chain.

ID Technology's range of labeling, marking and coding solutions enables you to achieve safe and reliable identification on a wide range cosmetic and personal care products and packaging applications. Our continued innovation and expertise, as well as an understanding of the important issues manufacturers face, allow us to offer products and solutions to meet your specific needs.
