As such we place great emphasis on the quality of the service offered by our logistics department to ensure we reach the high standards demanded by our customers. Please see below for more information regarding Alfa’s logistics department.
Alfa Chemicals holds stock of a wide range of regularly sold chemicals at its UK warehouse. The standard lead time for stock items is guaranteed delivery within 5 working days, express delivery guarantees delivery within 2 working days. Non-stock items are brought in to order; lead times vary depending on the manufacturer. To help reduce lead times for non-stock items we can arrange to hold stock of customer specific materials, provided that the demand is covered by a call-off order.
As well as its own warehouse in Reading, Berkshire. Alfa Chemicals uses specialist warehouse companies which have a long history of working with Alfa. The warehousing has approval for handling hazardous and restricted chemicals and has been approved by independent auditors from customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
Alfa Chemicals uses specialist chemical freight companies that have experience in handling hazardous materials. The partners we use have been pre-approved by our logistics and quality managers and have a long track record of working with Alfa.

Abyssinian oil (Crambe Abyssinica) behaves in a very similar way to Argan oil in haircare formulations, delivering similar or better results in most areas.
Elementis Specialities, in collaboration with the independent Research Organisation TRI Princeton, have found that Abyssinian oil (Crambe Abyssinica) behaves in a very similar way to Argan oil in haircare formulations, delivering similar or better results in most areas.
Testing was carried out on ethnic hair and a variety of tests were done:
Combability: Abyssinian oil delivers slightly better conditioning results and easier combing than with Argan Oil
Anti-breakage: On a repeated grooming test there were fewer broken fibres with Abyssinian oil compared with Argan oil
Shine enhancing: Abyssinian oil gives the same high shine and healthy appearance of hair as Argan Oil does.
