Label templates will be provided once your order has been approved.

At Cosmetic Labs Canada, we know everyone creates in different ways. That’s why we accept a variety of file formats: For logos, we recommend .PNGs with transparent backgrounds or a packaged Adobe Illustrator file, but we also accept .JPEGs and .SVGs.
For images, please send us high-resolution images. For completed label designs, please send us .PDFs with any fonts used on your labels and embed any images. We also accept packaged .Ai files. (If using any Adobe programs, do not outline paragraphed text.)

When it comes to the label or product descriptions, we (Cosmetic Labs Canada 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).
