Article Summary

The days of popping to a store and buying the first vitamin or supplement available are long gone. In a market of $35.7 billion, the supplement industry is highly competitive and crowded.

If you want your supplement brand to succeed, it’s vital to create strategic design and cohesive branding that resonates with your niche audience and builds trust and loyalty.

Think about brands you know and trust—what do they have in common? Creative packaging? Compelling messaging? A strong marketing strategy? Cohesive branding across platforms? Most brands need all of these components to succeed.

Successful supplement label designs are not just FDA-compliant—they also tell a unique brand story, highlight credibility and quality, and establish a positive brand reputation from the very first touchpoint with the audience.

Our award-winning agency has helped more than 150 brands launch. We understand what it takes to create strong branding, messaging, and packaging that positions your brand for success.

Read on to learn from our expertise and find out how to create your supplement label design and build a thriving brand!

Supplement Label Design: Why It Matters

75% of US consumers take supplements

52% of those consumers use a “specialty” supplement

15% annual increase in revenue was seen in brands that used clean labels

While supplement use remains high, consumer trust is wavering. It’s more important than ever to be transparent, clear, and trustworthy with your supplement label design.

Recent lawsuits have revealed untrue or misleading claims on packaging, leading customers to become more wary and skeptical of what’s on the label and what’s in the supplements they are taking.

The right supplement label design doesn’t just “sell the product.” It conveys credibility, builds trust, and establishes why your supplement brand can be trusted.

That’s why your label must be created strategically and intentionally, establishing a cohesive brand. It isn’t enough to create a pretty label or even to comply with regulations—every tiny decision, from the font you use to where you place your icons to how you word your claims can have a big impact on the way consumers perceive your brand and your product.

In addition to catching the eye and creating a premium, high-level feeling, your label should evoke emotion with your audience, include strong copy and messaging, be authentic and trustworthy, and position your brand uniquely in the marketplace.

Examples of Strong Supplement Label Design

Simple but Powerful

Supplement labels need to be clean and not cluttered, allowing customers to easily focus on the important information.

Greenworks supplement label design stands out as simple but powerful premium brand with its oval label and retro logo design

Why it works: Greenworks is an all-natural herbal supplement brand focused on creating potent and effective products. We created this eye-catching supplement label design with subtle elements, like a leaf shape in the “O,” that reflect the brand’s values and reinforce its natural, clean essence.

The retro fonts and minimalistic oval label design are a nod back to a simpler time, while the bamboo cap and pops of gold elevate the packaging with a premium feel, setting the product apart from competitors.


Great supplement label designs speak directly to the audience, combining every element to build trust and connection.

Arthro CBD label design targets pain and mobility struggles in an older audience by highlighting mobility and emphasizing the benefits of the product. 

Why it works: ArthroCBD is a science-backed CBD product to target pain and mobility struggles in an older audience. Strong imagery in the packaging design highlights mobility, playing on the pain point and emphasizing the benefits of the product.

Emotional Design

Design is about emotion, connection, forming a relationship with your audience. Humor, compelling visuals, incorporating a snippet of your brand story can help create that emotional appeal.

Megan & Co's supplement label design emotionally connects with it rural audience through handdrawn illustrations, color blocking

Why it works: Megan &Co’s elegant packaging conveys a sophisticated, high-end feel with premium elements such as glass and bamboo materials but still feels approachable and appealing to the target rural audience.

The handdrawn botanicals emphasize the root of the brand and draw in the eye, offering a unique visual unlike many competitors, while the simple color blocking balances these illustrations.

Examples of Bad Supplement Label Design

Unprofessional Designs

Showing before and after supplement label designs for Dr Carol

The founder of this pet supplement brand originally had a family member create the design, not understanding how much supplement label design matters for a product’s success.

Dr. Carol, DVM‘s original supplement label design is cluttered and unclear. It doesn’t inspire trust or create a sense of warmth. Our rebranded version is clean, minimalistic, and focused. It shows the brand’s credibility and their commitment to pets, but without all of the excess distractions.

Most importantly, the bright, cheerful colors and fun animal icon create a warm and engaging feel to resonate with pet parents who want to give their fur babies the healthiest life.

Cluttered Packaging

Showing before and after supplement label designs for Rapid Fire

Rapid Fire, a ketogenic coffee and tea line, originally had a very busy and cluttered packaging design. With so much information on the label, consumers don’t know where to look or how to find out whether a product is right for them.

The bold and sleek redesign minimized the information with clear and concise messaging. Ultimately, the brand found success with Target, Amazon, Walmart, and other major retailers.

Non-Compliant or Misleading Labels

The FDA has strict requirements for dietary supplement labeling to ensure that consumers get accurate, transparent information. When supplement brands choose to skirt or ignore these requirements, they set themselves up to lose integrity, brand reputation, and potentially bankrupt their company through expensive payouts.

For example, Balance of Nature, a supplement company founded in Utah, offered claims that their products cured cancer, boosted the immune system, and combatted COVID-19. They eventually faced a class-action lawsuit and were ordered to pay out $1.1 million.

It isn’t worth your reputation or your business to include misleading or false claims on your supplement label design. Consumers deserve clear, transparent, accurate information.

Claims, Compliance Considerations, and FDA Guidelines

Supplements on a light background

So, how do you ensure that your supplement label design is compliant? There are many regulations to consider, including:

Additionally, supplements must include:

It can be difficult to communicate the benefits of your product without breaking compliance and claim regulations. An experienced supplement packaging company can help you determine what you can and cannot include on your label, and an attorney can verify legalities and compliance.

DIY and AI vs. Hiring an Agency for Your Supplement Label Design

You might be tempted to DIY your supplement packaging design using an online generator or template, especially if you are a new brand with limited capital. But it’s important to consider the pros and cons carefully before deciding what is best for your supplement brand.

Super Power Protein wanted to bring the benefits of protein supplements to a wider audience, targeting more than just fitness enthusiasts. In this custom supplement label design, we used bold colors and an eyecatching, fun fruit illustration to set the brand apart and speak to that broader audience.

The Supplement Label Design Guide Process in 5 Steps

Customer shopping for supplements

Step 1: Understanding Your Audience

You can create the most innovative, effective supplement in the world, but if it isn’t branded and marketed strategically to the right audience, it isn’t going to sell. Great supplement label designs are created intentionally and crafted strategically.

Determine Your Target Audience

Your target audience is the foundation for every element of your branding and packaging. You can’t create a quality supplement label design without getting clear on your customers.

When determining your target audience, you need to understand your target demographic, or who it is that you are going to sell to.

Your demographic is based on measurable statistics such as:

But you also need to dive deeper—what problems does your target audience have? How can your product solve it? How do they want to feel? How will your supplement change their lives?

If you are creating CBD gummies for chronic pain, your audience is much different than a functional beverage for hydration or an herbal apothecary brand. Different imagery, colors, and messaging will appeal to these audiences.

Research Your Competition

You also need to get clear on what your competitors are doing. Your competitors include:

Direct Competitors: these competitors sell a similar product as yourself at a similar price point, to a similar audience.

Secondary Competitors: these competitors may sell something similar to your product or service, but it is at a different price point or to a different audience (maybe you both offer CBD products, but one is geared toward an older audience and one is for a younger demographic).

Tertiary Competitors: these competitors may actually be collaborators, as they sell different yet related products to a similar audience.

You can likely learn from each of these types of competitors. Start compiling a list and begin researching their branding, messaging, and positioning.

It’s important to understand what your competitors are (and aren’t) doing. Spend time going into the store and physically interacting with other products similar to yours. 

Pay attention both to what is working, and what is missing—this will reveal gaps in the marketplace where your brand can succeed. 

Identify Your Niche

As you research your competition, it’s important to determine what sets you apart from the rest of the crowd. Niching is important in any industry, but in the supplement industry it’s even more vital.

Consumers want specialized products that suit their individual needs—the more specific you can get, the better. For example, natural herbal supplements were once a specific niche—now, consumers have a sea of natural options. But if your brand offers higher potency of ingredients or a unique plant-based protein, that starts to limit the pool of competition.

There are four different approaches you can use to help better define your niche:

Do you have a special clinically-proven ingredient? Are you allergen-free? Do you have unique education or experience that lends credibility to your brand? Are your ingredients organic? These unique elements should be highlighted in your supplement label design. 

Define Your Goals

What do you ultimately want for your supplement? Do you want to be sold in specialty shops such as Natural Grocers or sports nutrition stores? Major retailers like Target or Walmart? Do you envision your product in the office of holistic doctors or naturopaths? Or do you plan to launch on Amazon or your own website?

Your supplement label design often needs to appeal to potential vendors as well as your target audience.

Step 2: Define Your Brand

Determine a Clear Brand Direction

Once you have an understanding of your audience, niche, and goals, it’s time to establish who you are as a brand.

You need to define:

These will become the cornerstone of your branding and your designs. 

Know Your “Why”

Remember that your brand should have its own personality, one that informs every decision you make and establishes a strong image and reputation. It’s helpful to define the “why” behind what you are doing and use that as a launching pad for your branding and designs.

Do you have a special mission that led you to start your brand? What positive or negative experiences have you had with supplements in the past? What are you hoping to do differently?

Take the time to carve this out and write down your “why.” This will become a cornerstone for your branding and decision-making.

Understand the Emotion You Want to Evoke

Branding and marketing success depend on the emotional connection you form with your audience. As you define your brand direction, think about how each element of design can strike an emotional chord.

Look at the difference between these two prenatal vitamin packaging designs:

Credit: Hum

While the products might be similar, the branding is completely different. Thorne’s minimalistic design is clean, basic, and straightforward. Hum’s is warm, engaging, nurturing, and even humorous (with the name “womb service.”)

Neither branding is “right” or “wrong,” but they speak to different audiences, have opposite tones, and evoke contrasting emotions.

You need to uncover what your brand stands for and how you want it to be perceived. Your brand story and image will determine whether you are successful with your target audience.

This is an area where working with an agency becomes very valuable. An experienced agency can establish strong and strategic branding, offering tone and voice guides, mood boards, and cohesive branding along with your supplement label design.

Set Yourself Apart

You also want to consider how to incorporate your unique differentiators into your design. This can determine the colors, logo, imagery, or tagline you will choose in step 5.

Create a Brand Name that Captures Who You Are

Many new brands make the mistake of coming up with a brand name before they have established who they are as a brand, often resulting in boring, unmemorable names that don’t connect with the audience or build brand recognition.

Your brand name and product name should communicate who you are and what your product offers. Brand names and product names can be basic and straightforward, but are often more creative and unique instead, making them easier to trademark. Powerful brand names are created deliberately to evoke specific emotions, not chosen at random.

For example, at Crème de Mint, we start our brand naming process with a deep dive interview, followed by market research and competitor analysis. We then create a content brief outlining the branding direction and create names that align with the overall brand vision.

The right brand name lays the groundwork for a strong brand story. Naming your brand without a strategic and deliberate approach is like building a house without a foundation. The tagline you choose, the brand language you use, and all of your design elements should be created from a strong cornerstone, establishing your brand’s identity and telling its story.

Renutrin Prebiotic Supplement Label Design is green, with light green elements and bold fonts.

We developed the brand name Renutrin for a nutritionist-created brand dedicated to producing quality, research-backed supplements using resistant starch. The catchy name flows well and plays both on the brand differentiator (resistant starch) and its big benefit (nutrition and wellness).

How to name a supplement brand

Step 3: Hire a Manufacturer

If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to determine how you are going to manufacture your supplements. There are three options for manufacturing:

Private label is the easiest and most affordable way to start a supplement line, while custom allows your product to truly stand apart. Semi-custom is often a nice middle-ground depending on your product and niche. 

Whatever method you choose, finding reliable vendors is important. You also need to find a printer. Some manufacturers offer turnkey service and can print your supplement label design as well as manufacture your product.

Your manufacturer or printer will determine many of your supplement packaging design choices, such as your material options and customization possibilities.

It can be helpful to ask around in your industry or check manufacturing directories. (When you work with Crème de Mint, we share our resource lists of reliable vendors.)

Make sure to vet your vendors, ask questions, and read reviews to find vendors who meet your needs and can work within your budget. It’s also important to check legal requirements related to supplements in your area and seek legal counsel if necessary.

Understand Your Bottom Line

Your budget will determine what vendors you can work with, what your supplement label design possibilities are, and whether you can afford to work with an agency for your design. 

You need to understand your: 

These numbers will decide what options you have for your packaging. Can you afford sustainable packaging options? Custom bottles? More high-end opaque glass? Or will you need to choose a basic plastic stock option? 

Understanding these numbers also helps you price your supplements correctly. You don’t want to underprice yourself and miss out on profit, or overprice yourself out of the market. (Use our free product pricing worksheet to help you make these decisions!) 

MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity)

Many vendors require a minimum order quantity in order to manufacture your supplements. You need to know what you can afford to produce upfront. If you have a low budget, you might have to find a manufacturer who is willing to offer a lower MOQ.

Cost Objectives Per Unit

You also need to get clear on the production cost of each unit, including shipping costs, labor, manufacturing, and printing. Add all of those costs together, then divide them to find your cost per unit.

(Cost of production + Cost of packaging + Shipping costs + Labor) / (Number of items)

This number will determine your product’s price point.

Profit Per Unit

Once you understand your cost per unit, it’s time to determine your price and your profit. In the supplement industry, the average profit margin is between 30-50% (which can vary by niche or specialty).

That means that you will want to mark your product up 30-50% from your cost per unit. You will likely need to price your product lower if you plan to sell wholesale, meaning your profit per unit will also be on the lower end.

Don’t forget to conduct competitor research to see if your price is in line with the rest of the market and adjust accordingly!

Shipping Costs

Shipping costs can take up a lot of capital, so it’s important to factor these in when deciding how to price and market your product.

Your shipping costs will depend on the weight of your product, the amount you will ship, and where you will ship to. If your supplement has specific requirements related to heating and cooling, your shipping costs might be higher.

The initial costs of overseas manufacturing is often temptingly low, but remember to factor in shipping and import fees. We recommend working with US-based manufacturers whenever possible.

Step 4: Choose The Right Packaging Materials

The materials you use in your packaging will affect your supplement label design. You don’t want to design something impractical or create a label that looks great on paper but doesn’t look right when wrapped around a bottle. Using the right packaging components will help you save on cost and avoid frustration for your customers.

Understanding the Packaging Components

Most supplements only use primary packaging—the bottle or pouch that contains the product itself.

You might also need to consider different shipping materials and filler materials—especially if your brand is committed to sustainability or if you plan to ship directly to customers.

For ecommerce sales, you want to ensure a great unboxing experience, complete with branded outer packaging, and informative, but engaging, inserts or postcards if needed.

Cost Factors

Packaging varies widely in cost, and your budget will determine what options are available to you. Most manufacturers will offer stock containers (ready made, generic packaging) that they recommend for your product. These stock containers will be less expensive, and are often the starting point for new brands.

Affordable supplement packaging options most often include plastic bottles. Depending on your budget and the manufacturer’s MOQ, you might be able to afford other material or color options.

Some supplements need other packaging options. For example, you might need darker amber bottles to preserve the integrity of the product, which will come at a higher cost.

More sustainable options, such as paper pouches, bamboo lids, or glass bottles, cost more—but might be important to your customers. You’ll need to balance cost with your company’s values and what your target audience prefers.

You’ll also need to consider seals for freshness, along with any necessary safety mechanisms, and factor those costs into the overall packaging budget.

If you are thinking of bringing in your own packaging or want a custom design, you will need to be sure the manufacturer’s equipment can support your new packaging.

Safety Mechanisms

Pharmaceuticals, CBD products, and some dietary supplements require child-resistant packaging. Child-resistant safety mechanisms go through testing to prove that they are difficult for a child to open and easy for an adult.

Depending on your product, you might need child-resistant twist caps or flexible pouches with zippers that are difficult for children to open.

If you are creating your own supplement label design, make sure to research and understand these regulations and explore your options for child-resistant packaging.

Accessible Packaging

In the supplement industry, it’s also important to consider if your products are inclusive and easy for adults with disabilities or older customers to open. This can be difficult if you are also using child-resistant mechanisms. Packaging material options are likely to change in the future to meet both needs.

In the meantime, try to consider accessibility and frustration-free packaging if possible.

Sustainable Materials

It’s becoming more important for companies to embrace eco-friendly packaging materials. 71% of customers actively choose their products based on sustainability and 82% are willing to pay a higher price point for it.

While these materials might come at a higher cost, if you can raise your price point accordingly, you might build brand loyalty and trust in the process without sacrificing your profits.

Sustainable packaging often conveys a premium look and feel that can help set your brand apart.

Alkaline Herb Shop supplement label design is white with pops of green color blocks, logo is clean and has a three leaf iconographic symbol

These paper pouches reflect Alkaline Herb Shop’s values, while also looking and feeling different than other herbal products that come in plastic bottles.

Even if you can’t afford higher-end packaging options, consider whether there is a way you can still embrace sustainability.

Greenworks supplement label design stands out as simple but powerful premium brand with its oval label and retro logo design.

Greenworks wanted an aesthetically-appealing packaging that could be displayed and reused by their customers, reducing waste and adding memorability to the brand.

Step 5: Create Your Supplement Label Design

Now it’s time for the creative side—bringing everything together into your supplement label design! There are several components to consider in your design:

Color Psychology

Color changes the way we feel—and when it comes to branding that can make a big difference. In fact, color alone can influence 85% of consumer decision-making.

That’s why it’s important to strategically choose your brand colors. Studies on consumer preferences in nutrition labels show that:

Certain colors evoke a sense of health, including:

While other colors give an artificial and unhealthy feeling, including: 

This doesn’t mean you can never use those colors or that all supplements should be green, blue, yellow, or red—but color psychology should be considered in your supplement label design. What emotions are you evoking with your color palette?

The shades of color also play a role. Bright colors often represent energy or vivacity. Neutral colors reflect nature and earthiness. Black symbolizes power and strength. Your color choices need to evoke the right emotion in your audience, while creating a cohesive brand image.


Infographic for typography for supplement labels

While the average person might not realize it, the typography on a package also evokes certain emotions. Different fonts have subconscious psychological associations:

Serif: Trustworthiness, credibility, formality

Sans serif: Modern, straightforward

Bold: Strong, powerful

Light: Delicate, gentle

Medium: Readable, clear, balanced

Scripted: Elegant, vintage, creative, or happy

Rounded: Warmth, softness

Angular: Sharp, direct

Other important typography factors to consider:


It’s important that consumers are able to easily get the information they need from your supplements label. Typefaces that are too small, angled or positioned oddly, or don’t show up on the background, can be frustrating for consumers.

Typographic Hierarchy:

Order your fonts to best communicate your message to the consumer. Center your product name near the top in the biggest font. Isolate special ingredients and big benefits without clutter or distraction, and use eye-catching fonts to make them easy to read.


The size of the font tells the consumer where to look first. Use larger font to highlight the most valuable information—the selling points. Keep disclaimers, Preparation directions, basic ingredients, and nutrition facts in smaller, but still readable, font.


Along with size, bring symmetry into the overall packaging design by playing with spacing. Higher end or premium supplements tend to have minimalistic designs with plenty of negative space.

Custom Fonts:

Incorporating custom elements into your typography can create engagement and interest in your logo or packaging.

Graphic Design: Logos and Imagery

Since your logo is the visual representation of the brand, it’s important to place it where it will get noticed—centered in the top or middle of your supplement label design. A memorable logo might stick in the mind of your customer’s even if they forget other elements about your brand.

Your logo can often determine whether a customer remembers your brand or not (That’s why it’s vital to design your logo along with your packaging, ensuring that your brand is aligned).

Other imagery on your packaging might include hand drawn illustrations or symbols. Don’t crowd your design—less is often more.

Featured Icons

Featured icons give you a way to highlight the most important information that sets you apart, such as organic certification, current good manufacturing practice certifications, or allergen-free.

Consumers with dietary needs or ethical preferences tend to immediately look for these most common symbols:

NON GMO Symbol


Cruelty Free (Leaping Bunny) Symbol

Cruelty Free (Leaping Bunny)

Certified Gluten Free symbol

Certified Gluten Free

Certified USDA Organic symbol

Certified USDA Organic

Certified Vegan Symbol

Certified Vegan

Choose 3-5 icons and display them clearly on your packaging. Remember that some icons, such as Leaping Bunny or USDA organic, require special certifications. Using these icons without the official certification process opens you up to litigation. You can create your own icons for certain features, including vegan and non-GMO. However, if you can afford to go through the certification process to use an official icon, it increases consumer trust and builds your brand reputation.

Taglines, Messaging, and Product Copy

A catchy tagline is a great way to set yourself apart and build brand recognition. It should communicate your brand’s unique features and motivate your audience.

Keep these short with 8 words or less, snappy enough to catch people’s attention, like a jingle or alliteration, and include benefits such as convenience or affordability. Creativity is encouraged, but clarity also matters!

You can also incorporate a 1-2 sentence brand story snippet that reflects on who you are, why your brand is special, or why you do what you do. Even a couple of sentences can help you build trust and loyalty with your customers.

(If coming up with these elements seems overwhelming, we can help! Contact us for a consultation.)

Think about the Design (and Your Brand) as a Whole

As you create the elements of your supplement label design, remember that everything has to weave together, like a tapestry. If you don’t center everything on your “why,” your brand story, and your target audience, your brand will appear haphazard and disjointed. Everything needs to work together to build a strong, consistent brand.

It’s also important to remember that your design doesn’t just lay on paper—it’s a 3D design. Make sure to consider the entire overall package. (One of the benefits of working with a design agency is access to their expertise and understanding of how the flat design translates to a 3D container. At Crème de Mint, we create detailed 3D mockups to help our clients visualize the final result.)

Most supplement packaging options don’t have a lot of room to work with. Keep the front label simple and engaging, with only the most important information. There are many compliance requirements for your back label, including a Supplement Facts panel, ingredients, and contact information for the manufacturer or distributor.

With the little space left, add in any additional icons, benefits, or brand story snippets to engage the audience and show some personality.

Remember that the materials you use, the way your product sits on a shelf, and the opacity of your packaging all factor into the overall supplement label design.

If possible, construct your 3D design using a product sample and a printed dieline (or design template) to check for any mistakes before you send your work off to the printer.

When you work with an experienced packaging design agency, they will understand the way materials work or don’t work, where mistakes might happen, and what issues might arise—and can navigate these challenges for you.

Ecommerce Supplement Label Design

When designing for ecommerce, it’s important to remember cohesive branding and the unboxing experience.

Selling on Amazon

On Amazon, you’ll be competing with even more options than you would on the shelves—which means catching the eye is even more vital. Every word and image must be strong and focused on hooking the audience in. You might need strong visuals or captivating colors.

Your Amazon platform provides a place to implement SEO strategy and communicate with your audience. You’ll also need your own website, which will give customers a place to learn more about you.

Your Amazon store should contain high-quality photographs, lifestyle images, or information about your process and the quality of ingredients. Remember, customers have many online choices—make sure they know why they should choose your brand.

Selling on Your Website

If you plan to sell exclusively online, you might end up needing to opt for cheaper materials or smaller products to save shipping and production cost, which means your designs might need to be even more minimalistic than if you are primarily selling in stores.

But selling your supplements directly on your website also allows you to create strong branding and messaging in a way that you can’t on the shelves. Shopify offers a simple, all-in-one platform to set up your online supplement store for easy check-out.

You can include photos and videos, more detailed product information, and expand on your brand story and include more information about your mission and values, which can all help you build stronger relationships with your audience. You can even offer subscription services to increase repeat purchases and brand loyalty.

Keep your website engaging and easy-to-navigate—and make sure that it reflects the same tone as your packaging design and overall branding.

Selling on Social Media

When selling on social media, relationships with your followers are key. Having a strong brand voice and messaging, along with cohesive brand visuals across social media, can help you build relationships.

Remember that it can take many touchpoints on social media for a consumer to make a purchase from a brand. Consistent and cohesive branding helps customers remember you and stay interested even in a crowded newsfeed.

Consumer Testing and Iteration

After you design your supplement label, you want to ensure that it resonates with consumers. Consumer testing is a valuable way to gauge the success of your packaging.

You can conduct consumer testing by:

While it’s most effective to print the packaging and show an actual product for consumer feedback, many small brands need to conduct this testing before printing. You can use a 3D rendering of your design to gather feedback. 

If you are not sure where to find potential consumers, spend time networking online and finding where your customers hang out. Contact your local gym, yoga studio, or natural food store to see if they are holding any events you could attend to meet potential customers. People are often happy to provide feedback.

Remember that iteration leads to success—it is better to make changes to your packaging design early on and help pave the way for a successful launch.
