According to a 2017 research report, the U.S. essential oil market size was valued at USD 3.36 billion in 2015 and is expected to witness an estimated growth rate of 9.0% from 2016 to 2024. While essential oils have been around for centuries, they are just now being appreciated for the many ways they can be used – in the pharmaceutical, medical, dietary and therapeutic applications – just to name a few.
Essential oils can create particular labeling challenges. Once the bottle is opened, it is easy for some of the oils to seep outside, then penetrate the label rendering it unreadable if the wrong type of label is applied. Another common issue relates to the cleanliness of the bottle after it is filled and before the labeling process even begins. Often, an oily residue is left behind even by the most careful bottlers, and that can ultimately affect the adhesion of the label.
If the exact right papers or films and adhesives aren’t used for producing the labels applied to oil products, it is entirely possible that the label will simply fall before it even gets to a store shelf. That won’t happen if you choose Epsen Hillmer Graphics as your custom label partner for your essential oil products.
