Soap Labels

We all need soap, and there's plenty to be had, of every type you can possibly imagine—even when you leave dish and laundry soap out of the equation. You've got plain hand soap bars, antibacterial liquid hand soap, perfumed body soap, body wash, and innumerable variations, all of which require different types of specialized soap labels.

All soap labels have a few things in common: they all have to be sturdy enough to stand up to the properties of detergents, which are designed to wash things away, So the substrates, inks, and adhesives of all soap labels have to be chemical- and wax-resistant.

Soap labels also have to stand out among all the other brands and varieties on the store shelves. Among other things, soap labels need bright colors, clear logos and text, lists of the volume, ingredients, and all the government mandated stuff, not to mention barcodes. This is where sharp distinctions become important, so the inks have to be bright and resistant to fading so you can find your favorite soap when you're in a hurry?

It's when people take them home and put them to use that the different types of soap labels really diverge.

Bar soap labels don't have to last much longer than it takes for you to get them home and stock the bathroom. They're sdesigned to get tossed at point of use, and are almost always made of coated paper. Soap bottle labels for liquid soap can also be made of paper, though some adhesive soap bottle labels of this type are made of BOPP or a similar low-impact synthetic. Many such brands take advantage of nifty transparent soap bottle labels to bring more attention to the packaging and contents.

Anything that goes in the shower or bath with you has to have a waterproof label, or at least a water-resistant one, so you can identify the contents or read the directions. These custom printed soap bottle labels are usually made of synthetic materials. Just as importantly, you need long-lasting squeezable soap bottle labels, because otherwise the labeling will degrade and fall off.
