CLP Labelling - What You Need To Know

As a candle manufacturer and supplier, labelling your product correctly is the most crucial element of your business. Not only because failure to do so will see you breaking the law, but an incorrectly labelled product would void your insurance. 

The Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) stipulates that all new products with hazardous substances must be labelled with the relevant information. CLP information should be supplied with any non-cosmetic product containing a hazardous substance, (most commonly a fragrance or essential oil). Typically found within candles, wax melts, reed diffusers and room mists.

If your product doesn’t contain any hazardous ingredients and is therefore not a classified product, you don’t need to provide any CLP data.

Do you need a CLP flow chart

The wax and wicks used when making candles don’t normally contain hazardous ingredients, although always confirm this with your supplier. All our wicks and waxes do not contain hazardous products and therefore you only need the CLP data for our fragrance oils. 

The main implications of fragrance oils are skin and eye irritations and the impact of hazardous substances on our environment. When present at certain concentration levels (normally high) you need to provide health and/or environmental warning statements and their safety pictograms. You are liable for ensuring the correct and accurate information is present. We assist our customers with this by having 5, 10 and 15% CLP labels ready to download for our fragrance oils.

There are 9 images/symbols that you may find on a CLP document, which are also known as hazard pictograms. These are intended to provide information about a substance and the damage this may cause to our health or the environment.
