So - today, I wasn’t going to do this post yet but I get asked so much about designing CLP labels and what apps I use and stuff like that. The reason I wasn’t going to do it yet was because of the new UFI regulations that come in place in January 2021. It requires us candle makers to have a 16 digit code on our CLP Labels.
All we do is basically add our ingredients that we use for each of our scented candles and generate this code and if an accident happens, medical professionals can enter this code into the database and find out what’s in our candles. But like I said it doesn’t come into play until January 2021. So don’t panic. I will be doing a more detailed post about this before Christmas.
So - this post is in no way saying my CLP labels are perfect. Although I think from a lot of research - iv’e got the info I need on there. So I thought the easiest way to help you guys out was to provide you with an example of my CLP labels that you can then use and adapt to create your own. I’ll give you the ones I actually use and then a blank template you can use to fill in your own information. Make sure to check your warning symbols and statements for your individual fragrance oils as they may differ to my templates. Remember the labels need to be 74mm by 52mm to meet regulations. If you can fit this label on your candles that would be great. If not - you can put it on your packaging but it needs to be upright. As in you can’t put this on the bottom of your candle box it needs to go where the customer can clearly see it.
ALWAYS CHECK YOUR RED WARNING SIGNS. THEY DIFFER FROM FRAGRANCE TO FRAGRANCE. SO CHECK YOUR SDS DATA SHEETS TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ONES ON THE CLP LABEL.
The pictograms on this label also have to be 1cm in size. You can then put another CLP label, a circular smaller label, I wouldn’t go any smaller than 50/51mm and this label can go on the bottom of your candle base.
I‘ve left some precautionary statements on this template too but PLEASE REMEMBER to check the hazard statements on your fragrance oils and what is required on the label. The ones I have given you are ‘blanket’ hazard statements. You will find the ones you need on your SDS sheets. These templates are here to help you, if you’re struggling.
UPDATES WE DO NOT NEED TO PUT GRAMS OF WAX ON LABELS. Label typo 10cm not 1cm. Check your SDS sheets as mine are only a guide and example of what you need to put on. Thank you.
