EU Cosmetics Directive & Wikaniko Products

Our fabulous Mineral Make-up Range will not be in production after July 2013 for a few months.  So stock up now!

Our fabulous Mineral Make-up Range will not be in production after July 2013 for a few months. So stock up now!

July 11th is D-Day for many small cosmetic manufacturers as all products made after this date need to meet the new EU Directive on Cosmetic products.   Products made before the date can continue to be sold after it, but as with many other small-scale manufacturers, Wikaniko may have a hiatus in production of some of its own brand products.  In addition, the prohibitive cost of meeting the new requirements (about £500 for an exisiting product or up to £2000 for a new product) may result in some of our smaller suppliers going out of business – we hope not.

Overall it is only about 10% of the Wikaniko range of products that will be affected by this ruling and though a few products may go out of production, most will reappear – meeting all new regulations – on our ‘web-shop shelves’ in the autumn.

So, if you are a fan of any of the following products please do stock up now!  I would hate for you to run out.

Mineral Makeup – the powders and lipsticks will be affected for a short while.

Wikaniko Luxury Shampoos, Conditioners, Creams & Lotions – many of these will be affected by the new regulations, so please do stock up.

Wikaniko Organic Lip Balms – these will be affected for a few months, so again, please do stock up.

Wikaniko Bath Salts (in jars) & Bath Bombs – again, these will be affected so please stock up.

Fabulous 2-for1 offer - order yours now (June 2013)

Wikaniko Deodorant Stones – one of our top-selling products and sadly will be affected for a while.  Please do stock up and take advantage of our great 2-4-1 offer: buy one and you will recieve 2 in your order.

A couple of products are likely to be discontinued – the bath melts & rollerballs are currently on this list.

Lastly, our own-brand range of shampoos, conditioners, shower gels & handwashes will be discontinued and replaced with equivalents from the Faith In Nature Range.  The products are very similar and price per 100ml is comparable, if not better, so this is a great deal.

I will add comments to this post as more information comes in, so please do return to check it.

Please do get in touch if you would like more information.

FREE to Join Wikaniko

Free To Join NOW

Free To Join NOW

Life is good in the Wikaniko camp at the moment. Why?

Well, you can now join Wikaniko for free. That is right for absolutely nothing whatsoever.

How? I hear you ask.

This is a ‘try before you buy’ offer. You try out the business for 6 months and then decide whether it is for you or not. If it is, fabulous and welcome on board. You will then be charged the full £79 joining fee. If not, no probelms and thanks for trying it.

So what do you get for nothing?

  • Your own website – exactly the same as mine ( but with your details on it.  After 30 days, the website will start to have a cost of £3.50 per month.  This is one of hte biggest online retail eco supermarkets in the UK and you can attract customers directly to your site.  This boosts your income too.
  • Excellent on-line training and fabulous support from HQ on the phone or online.
  • Buy eco-friendly household products at wholesale price instead of retail and reduce your outgoings (up to £100s per year)
  • Help save the planet – make a difference and earn an income.
  • The opportunity to build a team or branch anywhere in the UK by introducing people to the opportunity.  You make an override on what they do, by helping them to build a great future for themselves.
  • There are numerous ways to develop your business: you can offer the products to friends and work colleagues by showing them our catalogues, you can do eco events, craft fairs, shows etc, hold parties to demonstrate our products, drop catalogues or any other way that suits you and your life.
  • The chance to enjoy your life, free from financial worries, and at the same time have a true sense of purpose.
  • In addition, Wikaniko offers something quite amazing – a Social Media online training course worth over £6,000!  This will become yours for free if you stay after 6 months or you can buy it now and then if you decide to stay after 6 months, you will not be charged the joining fee!!

This enables you to learn social media without going outside your front door, and obtaining the skills and knowledge to easily attract customers to your shop without you having to handle a single product or speak to a single person.  After this course, you would possess a skill that would enable you to promote anything online worldwide, as well as your Wikaniko opportunity. You don’t ever need to be short of income again.

Does that all appeal to you?

However, the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary! There is effort involved. There is work to do, and there are things to learn.

If you want to have a go, though, we’ll teach you along the way, using some of the best training ever created. You do the training in the comfort of your own home, and at your pace.

Where to start?

Have a look at the presentation on this link and if you are interested, please do get in touch….

Lemongrass Loo

For a Green Clean Loo, look no futher than BioD Toilet Cleaner.

For a Green Clean Loo, look no futher than BioD Toilet Cleaner.

I love the smell of Lemongrass – it brings back memories of living in Thailand where I grew Lemongrass in the garden and it was a regular feature in food.  Perhaps this is why I like BioD Toilet Cleaner so much.  Well, that is one reason anyway.

Other reasons include:-

  • It does a great job in cleaning the loo and making it sparkle
  • It does NOT result in a chlorine chemical fug in the bathroom
  • It does NOT result in aquatic pollution
  • It is totally biodegradable
  • It CAN be used with cess pits, septic tanks and soakaways without killing any of the useful bugs & bacteria that these rely on.

In fact all it contains is: Acetic Acid, Aqua, Citric Acid, Coconut Oil derived Detergent, Corn Sugar Gum, Vegetable Glycerine, Lemongrass Oil.

Have you tried it yet?
