You can’t get in touch with the artists. And probably yes, you will need an enhanced license to put it on your products, but it’s difficult to appreciate, because you may be good enough with a standard license:
Cannot use asset prominently in merchandise or products for resale
The keyword is ”prominently”! So if the asset is an important part of your packaging concept, yes, you need an extended license. It’s probably an extended license if I understand your use correctly.But in both cases, you ar...

what do you mean with “labels on products”?

Look here for information on the licensing: License information and Terms of use | Adobe Stock

...and see here for more information: Common Questions, Adobe Stock .

You cant get in touch which the artists. You can use the illustrations but depending on the use you need a standard or enhanced license. And you cant use stock assets for logos or product elements that you want to protect as part of the product id. That is due because of the non-exclusively of your acquired assets. Apart of those limitations, you are free to use the asset at your convenience.

The keyword is ”prominently”! So if the asset is an important part of your packaging concept, yes, you need an extended license. It’s probably an extended license if I understand your use correctly.

But in both cases, you are allowed to use the asset as your own, except that you cannot sell the asset to others an you are slightly limited in what is allowed (ie run of less than 500,000 for a standard license) before you need a different license.

As the asset will not be used as the logo which is an exclusion factor you can go ahead.
