  2. All of our UK fragrance oils have been reformulated to exclude Lyral (3- and 4-(4-hydroxy-4-methylpentyl) cyclohexene-1-carbaldehyde) (HICC) as required by the EU for cosmetic products, but we're still busy updating the allergen lists, so please contact us if you need any allergens emailed to you while we complete our paperwork and website upload.  Thank you!

  3. We are in the process of discontinuing all of our US oils due to the EU UFI regulations but we are offering a pre-order option on the 16oz size until the end of next year (2020), so you can still order them this way and use them up till the end of next year. We will order them for you as soon as you place your order, and they will be shipped to us within 2-3 weeks.  This time frame depends on Customs and how long they take to clear and process the parcels.  Busier times (e.g. Christmas) may be slower.  Our US fragrance oils will now be available in the 16oz size only, which is just under 500mls (usually approximately 473mls, depending on the weight of the fragrance - some are heavier than others).  Please remember to order these separately (not with other items which are available on our website) unless you are happy for your order to be delayed.  Please order early to stock up on your Christmas fragrances and avoid disappointment.  Thank you!

  4. The CARACAL (expert group on CLP) has agreed unanimously to the European Commission’s proposed changes to Annex VIII to CLP. The Commission is now proceeding with adopting a delegated act, which will, among other things, postpone the first compliance date for harmonised reporting to poison centres, for mixtures intended for consumer use, from 1 January 2020 to 1 January 2021. Entry into force is expected later this year. Other compliance dates will not be affected. The Commission is also progressing with solving some of the concerns raised by stakeholders on the workability of the notification requirements and another amendment to Annex VIII is expected in 2020.

  5. All of the packaging materials that we buy are now fully biodegradable or recyclable.  Please bear with us while we use up existing stocks of bubblewrap etc, and we will also continue to re-use packaging sent to us by suppliers.  The outer plastic packaging we use for our courier (DPD) is also 100% recyclable, as are our bottles, and our void fill is fully biodegradable.
