The health product and supplement market sure is extensive, and with a vast range of liquid supplements, protein powders and dietary tablets to compete with, you’ve got to ensure your products stand out among the masses. But in a market where trust is key and nutritional claims can make or break your health and supplement business, standing out means more than innovative design and eye-catching imagery. It means providing information that customers can rely on - such as recommended daily intake, storage instructions, an allergen list and ingredients list. It means ensuring health claims are valid and true and giving customers a reason to trust in your brand. It means using a label company who can present all of this information and more on your containers, jars and bottles. It means using Lemur Labels.
Whether you’re after 2000, 20,000 or 200,000 new health and supplement labels, we can create custom-printed labels that combine stunning design and clear information in a fraction of the time of our competitors. We’ve invested heavily in advanced label printing machinery to provide our clients with truly exceptional health product labels and supplement labels with a lead time of only 3-5 days - allowing your products to be in stores as soon as possible.
Printing on materials as varied as gloss white paper, matt plastic, clear plastic and vellum paper, as well as holographic materials, keeps our designs truly unique. With a range of finishes too - it won’t be hard to spot your products on the shelves.
Therefore, if you’re looking for business label printing services and are located in cities as varied as Glasgow, Cardiff, Manchester, London or Liverpool, please get in touch with us today on 0161 302 1964 to learn more about what we can do for you.
The Importance of Supplement Labels & Health Product Labels
Whether they’re giving customers a boost of Vitamin A, B or C, helping to build up their muscle mass or providing all important medication that aids their blood pressure, mental health or balanced diet, the supplement and health products you provide to clients can truly impact their lives. However, without proper labelling, this impact could be negative. Correct labelling ensures customers know recommended daily dosage, allergy information and intended usage, as well as nutritional information.
Here at Lemur Labels, we offer a variety of secure label options that ensures complete transparency and effectiveness. This includes barcode labels, variable data labels and black ink labels, as well as our popular custom print labels - for ease of understanding, and ensuring that customers understand intake and instructions. We know there’s a vast variation in container shapes and sizes too - making label design, shape and adhesive choice key to standing out on the shelves - along with branded colours and imagery that makes your products undeniably yours. There’s a lot to consider, and a lot that we can help you with. Whether you’re a supplement manufacturer, a dietary tablet supplier or create powders for those who find swallowing pills, tablets and capsules difficult - together, we can create bespoke health product labels and new supplement labels as effective as the products themselves.
Within the health and supplement market, you also have to be careful with the health claims you make - as lawsuits are not uncommon. Through our expert-driven proofreading process, we can help ensure your claims are now only viable, but provide clients with the results they’re after.
Examples of health claims include:
High Protein: This claim can only be made on your health product label or supplement label where at least 20% of the energy value of the product is provided by protein.
High Unsaturated Fat: Where at least 70% of the fatty acids present in the product derive from unsaturated fat, and this unsaturated fat provides more than 20% of the product’s energy.
Fat Free: Where the product contains no more than 0.5g of fat per 100g or 100ml. You cannot express claims as 'X % fat-free' however.
Source Of [Name Of Vitamin/S] And/Or [Name Of Mineral/S]: May only be made where the product contains at least a significant amount as defined in the Annex to Directive 90/496/EEC or an amount provided for by derogations granted according to Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 1925/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on the addition of vitamins and minerals and of certain other substances to foods.
High [Name Of Vitamin/S] And/Or [Name Of Mineral/S]: A claim that a food is high in vitamins and/or minerals, and any claim likely to have the same meaning for the consumer, may only be made where the product contains at least twice the value of ‘source of [NAME OF VITAMIN/S] and/or [NAME OF MINERAL/S]’.

Whether you specialise in bodybuilding supplements, dietary supplements or a range of tablets, capsule, powders and multivitamins, there is a range of key information that must appear on your label, to ensure it complies with industry regulations. This information not only ensures the safety of your customers, but ensures they are clear on the effects your product will have on them.
Health Product Labelling & Supplement Labelling Requirements Include:
Your company name and address.
The best before date, or if it is stamped on the base/top of the bottle, a statement such as ‘’for best before date see base of bottle’’.
Ingredients in descending weight order under the heading "Product Information".
Ingredients should also be listed with their scientific name, for example - Vitamin D3, (Cholecalciferol).
When you list ‘’other ingredients’’ after the main active ingredients, you need to list their purpose, for example - Brown Rice Flour (bulking agent), Magnesium Stearate (flowing agent).
Nutrient Reference Values (NRV) for your vitamins and minerals. Examples include Thiamin (1.1 mg), Riboflavin (1.4 mg) and Niacin (16 mg), as well as potassium (2000mg), Calcium (800 mg) and magnesium (375mg). On the label, this will appear as the active ingredient name, followed by the mg, and then the NRV%.
An allergen warning statement, such as: ‘’For allergens please see ingredients in bold’’, with the ingredients in the supplement ingredients list printed in bold typeface.
Details on where the product has been manufactured and whether your supplement manufacturer makes products that may have allergens. If they do, you must include the statement, ‘’Made in a factory that also handles allergen x’’.
Your health labels and new supplement labels should also include cautions or warnings related to who shouldn’t take the product or supplement, such as:
‘’Not A Substitute For A Healthy Diet.’’
‘’Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18 years.’’
‘’Do not exceed the stated dose.’’
‘’If under medical supervision, consult a doctor before use.’’
‘’Store in a cool dark place away from moisture and direct sunlight.’’
‘’Keep out of reach of children.’’
If you’re unsure whether your labels are compliant, then don’t worry, we can help. We understand the complexities of the industry, and can proof your labels with a qualified eye. We can ensure your labels aren’t just stylish, but meet the needs of your sector too.
Whether you’re after creative design, industry-compliant advice or labels that combine both for your health and supplement business, Lemur Labels can do it all. We’ve helped create health product labels and new supplement labels for a vast range of clients, from markets including: dietary labels; bodybuilding labels; vitamin A labels; capsule labels; food supplement labels; metabolism labels; nutrition label; herbal supplements.
From initial concept to production, we’ll discuss your special labelling requirements with you throughout, and our in house designer can create artwork that grabs your target consumers’ attention. With various adhesives also available - including peel and reseal and the ‘no-label look’ - information can be presented in highly-sophisticated ways. There’s truly no end to our artistry and expertise.
Our peel and reveal option is extremely popular with our health product clients and supplement clients because they:
Keep the label looking sharp and clean while providing additional content behind a peel-away window, such as additional nutritional information and facts.
They can provide details on competitions and coupons, as well as money off vouchers.
Peel and reveal labels can minimise the size of the needed container, bottle or jar, due to displaying at least double the amount of information on the packaging.
Because these labels have layers, we can also ensure that artwork is uninterrupted throughout, and that the design doesn’t show through and ruin the look of the top layer. It’s quite a craft, and one that we here at Lemur Labels have perfected.
Our Printing Capabilities
To provide the very best in health product labels and new supplement labels, we have invested heavily in our printing solutions. We often get asked about the specifications and benefits of our two main machines - the flexographic printing press (Edale Fl3) and our digital Screen Truepress Jet L350uv+ - and therefore provide their key details below:
The Edale Fl3
Flexography is a printing process that uses a flexible relief plate, adhered to a printing cylinder or printing sleeve. It can be used for printing on a range of substrates, including plastic, metallic films, cellophane and thermal paper.
It can use a combination of spot and process colours using UV inks. Spot pantone matching systems ensure consistency of branded colours, and we can use process colours for clear, crisp imagery.
Guarantees precision throughout the run and delivers consistency every single time.
The Screen Truepress Jet L350uv+
Our digital printer is a reel-fed machine, which can handle media that is up to 350mm wide, and incorporates piezo electric inkjet printheads jetting a UV-cured ink with a conventional UV lamp system for curing.
The Screen Truepress Jet L350uv+ can print up to 60m per minute, and ensures sensational colour, quality and throughput throughout.
A combination of proprietary UV curing inks and high-resolution screening technologies enable superb graphic expression with smooth gradations and a wide colour gamut. SCREEN unique technologies for TruepressJet L350 series also allow droplet size to be controlled in four steps, supporting the creation of extremely natural-looking gradations.
Allows flexible printing for multiple SKUs and produces less waste.
Interested in learning more about our Edale Fl3 and Screen Truepress Jet L350uv+? They’ve been imperative to our success, so we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about them.
We follow a strict labelling framework to ensure precision and care with each and every order, and that our clients from the health and supplement markets receive the labels they are after.
When you get in touch, we’ll go through the details of your custom labels, blank labels, black ink labels or variable data labels with you, and suggest materials, artwork and print. We also offer a range of label unwinding styles, including ‘head first, inside wound’ and ‘foot first, outside wound’.
We’ll then print your labels on our flexographic Edale Fl3 printing machine or our Screen Truepress Jet L350uv+ digital printer. Once printed on the press, we’ll finish them as required, taking into consideration our wide range of finishing options, including lamination, varnishing (gloss or matt) or spot UV varnish - where we can make certain parts of the label glossy, and other parts matt.
Once they have been fed through our Digicon lite machine, the labels then go onto a ‘rewinder’ machine, which rewinds the big roll of labels into smaller rolls, based on your label requirements. For example, you may have specified during the quote stage that you wanted 1,000 labels per roll.
Once complete, we’ll dispatch and send out your health product labels or supplement labels for delivery. Our standard lead-times are 3-5 days, while we do offer an expressive service for rush orders.
It all starts with a phone call and quote, so to get yours, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today on 0161 302 1964 today. Your labels will have never looked better.
