Additional Information:

Please Note: Your manufacturer (mfr) and all formulae are safety assessed and registered under license of "PB Ltd/ Cheshire/SK104SY UK".

Should you be contacted by a government official asking for your manufacturer/safety assessment proof then you would need to direct them to us and we will make sure they have the info they need.


You are NOT legally required to show any member of the public (this includes stockists) with proof of assessments and we will not surrender this info to the general public because of it's sensitive nature and the containment of our trade formulae. This information legally only has to be surrendered by official request by a relevant govt authority.


You do not need COA or MSDS for any of these products because you are not a manufacturer. This is information stored by your manufacturer and their safety assessor and not required for a white label/private brand to possess. You are not changing a product but rather reselling/relabelling a finished product.


Bath bombs and any small products do not require ingredients labels. As long as the information on use and ingredients are posted at the point of sale (whether that be a website and/or physical store/market).


Due to the different languages and terms used across the EU, there are regulations on how certain types of ingredients must be displayed;

Ingredients have to follow a standard terminology so there is consistency between different brands and this is set in the International Nomenclature for Cosmetics Ingredients (INCI). All INCI names can be found on the product summaries on our website on each product page.
‘Parfum’ can be used to indicate the presence of a perfume
‘Aroma’ can be used to indicate the presence of a flavour [lip products]
For ingredients that are in concentrations of less than 1%, they can be listed in any order after all other ingredients
If there is an addition of a fragrance there may be allergens that are associated with these. Allergens must clearly be stated on the product.
Common names may be used eg. water, as detailed in the European Pharmacopoeia but are not needed
