Under the General Product Safety Regulations 2005, it is required that all producers and distributors of any potentially dangerous product must be fully labelled with information and warnings relating to that product. Our candle safety label contains all the relevant information and warnings your customers need to know about safely using your candles.
As well as a candle safety label your candles or melts must also be CLP complaint.
The CLP Regulation (for “Classification, Labelling and Packaging”) is a European Union regulation from 2008, which aligns the European Union system of classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures to the Globally Harmonised System (GHS).
This article explains CLP in great detail in how to be complaint: http://www.cirs-reach.com/CLP/Labelling_Packaging.html
This area of labelling can be very confusing, but we have made it easy for you. Fragrances contain a range of different chemicals which are classed as potentially harmful and need to be displayed on the packaging. The chemicals in each fragrance are all different. We have a data sheet available for every fragrance we supply.
A candle generally speaking can hold 10% fragrance oil, so we provide a 10% data sheet for each fragrance. Simply go to the fragrance product page, and click the data sheets tab. Under the data sheet tab you will see ‘Download 10% MSDS.’
Once downloaded, open the data sheet and scroll to section 2.2 ‘Label Elements.’
Everything in this area needs to be put directly onto your candle label.
For most fragrances we have already created a CLP label template for you. Simply print off, add your company details, print using a label printer and stick to your candle or wax melt. You are CLP compliant. Easy!
