Coding, Labelling, and Inspection for Cosmetics

In the cosmetics industry, every detail can have an impact on your product presentation – including coding. Matthews provides advanced coding technologies that will ensure you have high quality codes to suit your products, while also streamlining your coding processes, improving efficiencies and minimising waste.  

Right label, right place

Getting the right label in the right place is essential for your products. With Matthews, you have the choice of in-line labelling systems or label applicators depending on your needs. Our labellers are highly versatile and can apply labels onto tubs, jars, bottles, cartons and more. 

Precise inspection

Product inspection is crucial in the cosmetics industry. To comply with the national standards, all products must indicate the quantity, volume, number or mass contained within the pack. And a deficiency from the stated quantity should not exceed more than 5% in a pack. At the same time, you also need to ensure that your coding and labelling is accurate and in the right place.  

Our advanced vision inspection systems provide an effective, automated solution to:

  • Inspect product for fill levels, content, etc.
  • Inspect code presence, position and formation 
  • Validate label presence and positioning 
  • Inspect rigid containers for dimensional and cosmetic requirements
  • Sort products based on marking


You can also consider using serialisation or 2D codes to project your brand from counterfeit products.

Whatever your cosmetic business needs, Matthews can provide a tailored coding, labelling and inspection solution to suit you. Talk to our experts to find out how.
