How to Safely Label Dental Products

February 20, 2017

The month of February is Children’s Dental Health Month, which makes it the perfect time to review your product labels to ensure that they meet important safety guidelines. For instance, it’s a good time to ensure that your toothpaste or mouthwash products meet cosmetic label requirements, or possibly even drug requirements if the product contains fluoride. When you’re ready to update your rolled labels or sheet labels, Sheet-Labels.com can help to make the process as easy as possible.

Read on to learn more about labeling dental products and how roll labels are the best choice for your dental product labeling needs.

Dental Products Without Fluoride

According to the FDA’s Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, all cosmetics in the U.S. must meet important safety rules and guidelines. Toothpaste or any other dental products used to cleanse, beautify, or enhance an individual’s appearance must meet FDA cosmetic labeling guidelines. In addition to including the company’s name, address, intended use of the product, the weight of the product and the net quantity of contents on the label, a list of ingredients or any possible consumer warnings must also be included on the product label. Product ingredients must be listed in order of predominance (in descending order).

Color additives and any added ingredients must also be included under the ingredient list; however, any ingredient that is present in less than one percent does not need to be listed with predominance in mind. 

Tamper Resistant Packaging

Any liquid oral hygiene product such as mouthwash must contain tamper-resistant packaging, along with a statement that alerts the customer of the tamper-resistant packaging. In addition, if the product may be hazardous or harmful to consumers if misused, the company must also include a consumer warning on the product label.

Dental Products Containing Fluoride

Any cosmetic product that is used to prevent or treat disease falls under the FDA category of cosmetic products that are also drugs. For example, toothpaste or mouthwash containing fluoride is a cosmetic product that is also classified as a drug. If your dental product also falls under the drug category, you must list the drug ingredient as an active ingredient before listing the cosmetic ingredients.

For additional information about labeling cosmetics and drug products, visit the FDA’s website.

Rolled Labels for Dental Products

Printed roll labels from Sheet-Labels.com are an excellent choice for labeling your dental products. Roll labels are efficient and cost-effective labeling options that save you time and money in the long run. However, we do recommend purchasing a roll label applicator or label dispenser to make the labeling process even easier. When you make the decision to use our printed roll labels, you reduce company expenses, disposal fees, waste, and you benefit the environment at the same time.

Plus, our printed roll labels are available in four different shapes, a variety of sizes, materials, and ink colors. Our high-quality weatherproof labels are the best option for your dental products that sit on the bathroom counter and encounter water or moisture on a regular basis.
