To compliment the information included in our Product care and safety and Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) pages it is helpful to explain why this information is included when purchasing scented products.

It is crucial to understand the importance of buying from a reputable source to establish that all applicable products have the correct labeling. This ensures the products' legality, customer safety and compliance.

In particular, various factors related to safety labels, certifications, and adherence to local regulations, including the Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) standards should be adhered to.

Rest assured that we at Kettleby Kitchen include the correct labeling and safety standards on all of our applicable products and you should only purchase from a reputable vendor that does so, including high street shops.

Below is an overview of various regulations for the UK market:

Compliance with UK Regulations:

Ensure the scented products comply with UK regulations, with a focus on standards set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD). These entities oversee regulations related to chemical safety.

Hazard Symbols and Warnings:

Look for hazard symbols and warnings that comply with the Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) regulations in the UK. These symbols convey information about flammability, irritants, and other potential health hazards.

Child Safety Information:

Ensure that scented products accessible to children include appropriate child safety information. This is vital for items like air fresheners, candles, or cleaning products that may pose risks to young children.

Expiry Date and Manufacturer Information:

Check for an expiry or use-by date if applicable, ensuring the product is safe for use within the specified timeframe. Verify the accuracy of manufacturer information, including a physical address or contact details for reporting issues.

CLP Compliance:

Confirm that the scented product includes the correct Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) information as mandated by UK regulations. The CLP labels provide standardized communication of hazards and are a legal requirement in the EU, including the UK.

Customer Reviews and Ratings:

While not a substitute for safety labels, it may be helpful to check customer reviews for insights into the products' performance.

By considering these factors, you can make informed decisions when purchasing scented products, ensuring compliance with local regulations, and promoting personal and environmental safety.
