CLP stands for Classification, Labelling and Packaging. This is a European Union regulation which states that all substances and mixtures need to be labelled according to EU regulations, based on the Globally Harmonised System (GHS).
CLP Regulation requires chemicals to be classified for their hazards and their packaging labelled accordingly.
From 1st June 2015 candles, wax melts, and other home fragrance products such as reed diffusers are now covered by this regulation. This means that all fragranced wax products and items such as scented sachets, reed diffusers and aroma beads which have been purchased in the UK need to follow strict labelling guidelines.
You will find this information on all of our fragranced products produced since 1st June 2015. This includes a list of significant sensitisers, along with relevant warnings and precautionary statements. Some of our labels may carry warning symbols, although a number of items we make (below 125ml) do not require these.
Important :- This information is included on everything available on the website, but may not included on all of our products as some were made prior to 1st June 2015. There is a grace period of 2 years in which these can be sold and are not required to be labelled under the CLP regulations. These items may be sold until 1st June 2017, but after that date must be labelled in accordance with the regulations.
Every fragrance has its own Safety Data Sheet. Whilst some of the information on the labels seems a bit scary, this is entirely for the protection of consumers.
Please feel free to get in touch with us should you have any concerns or would like more information.
