Understanding the Safety Labels on Your Products

Hazards & Warnings explained

Fragrance oils contain a wide range of ingredients and some of these may cause skin irritation, which could lead to an allergic reaction if the fragrance oil were to come into contact with the skin. The same ingredients or other ingredients might be toxic to aquatic environment. Where these ingredients are found in a high enough concentration, in the final diffuser to be a hazard, then we have to list these on the label. We also have to advise you of how to manage these hazards. This is why you will see diffusers with an exclamation mark and a dead fish symbol followed by ingredients on the label. These are there by law as we have to list them. These are the only 3 possible images you will find on our Price’s diffusers, and, some products have no pictograms triggered at all.

Please be assured, we have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our customers, and only use fragrance oils which have been vetted and contain the least possible sensitisers and hazards.

All our wax melts and candles are CLP compliant. So what is CLP?

CLP stands for Classification, Labelling & Packaging. It’s a piece of legislation that all candle & diffuser makers have to comply with to sell their products legally in Europe and the UK. In layman terms, we, the manufacturer, have to tell you, the customer, what (if any) the hazards are in our candles, and label them accordingly, so that you can look at the label, and immediately see what, if any, hazards the product presents. The label will include (where necessary) a signal word, image, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category.

Precautionary statements may also be provided. As of June 2015, candles fall into this legislation where they contain fragrance oil. It is not just candles that CLP legislation applies to and you may already have noticed that several household products such as bleach and washing up liquid will have warning labels on them.
