Leading UK Chartered Chemist joins Ashleigh & Burwood

Ashleigh & Burwood has long been associated with excellence in home fragrance and have been notable for their intrinsic design flare and innovation. Committed equally to the technical superiority of all products that they bring to the market, the company can announce a new significant investment with the appointment of one of the UK’s premier Chartered chemists and Chartered scientists, Siva Kandiah as Senior Technical Development Manager.

Siva in the lab

Siva Kandiah brings with him a wealth of experience amassed during his successful career in this field as a highly respected consultant working with some of the world’s largest and most successful cosmetics and toiletries companies. His unique expertise will enable the company to make dramatic technical advancements in its product formulations.

Ashleigh & Burwood’s investment has continued with the commission of a brand new purpose built laboratory at their head office in Walton-on-Thames, fully equipped with state of the art equipment.

The launch of the Historic Royal Palaces home fragrance range marks Ashleigh & Burwood’s first product range created under the expert technical guidance of Siva and as such the products benefit from a number of technical advantages over others to be found on the market.

The HRP candle boasts an advanced wax formulation which results in an efficient burn with very low residual wax, as well as high fragrance tolerance allowing for a higher than standard percentage of perfume to be used in it’s make up. The candle is guaranteed to burn for 35 hours and has an attractive rich and creamy, smooth finish.

The HRP reed diffuser is composed using a unique break through formula created exclusively by Ashleigh & Burwood. The non- alcohol formula, which is patent pending mimics the positive effects of standard alcohol diffusers, in that it efficiently diffuses fragrance into the air, yet it provides a high flash point and non hazardous status. Additionally it benefits also from very low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) allowing it to meet the tough VOC standards of CARB (California Air Resources Board).
