WHY SOY WAX?

Much of the candle industry heavily relies on the use of paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product that is created from the sludge waste when crude oil is refined into gasoline. Paraffin wax when burned emits toxins such as toluene, acetone, benzene and formaldehyde which are known carcinogens. Paraffin is widely used by the industry due to its ability to hold more fragrance, have a stronger fragrance throw and is cheaper to mass produce than other vegetable-based waxes. Burning paraffin candles can cause symptoms such as nausea, headaches and can upset respiratory problems involved with allergies and asthma.

We use 100% natural soy wax because soy is a renewable resource. Soy wax emits no toxic chemicals and provides a clean burn while producing no petrol-carbon soot Soy wax candles burn slower and not as hot as paraffin candles, resulting in a burn time up to 30-50% longer than paraffin candles.

 

WHY CHOOSE A COTTON WICK?

The burning of a lead cored wick releases lead into the air you breathe. In 2003 the EPA banned the use of lead in candle production in the U.S. Unfortunately, there are still many countries out there using dangerous wicks. Candles made with a lead cored wick could present a lead poisoning hazard to young children.

The wicks we use are made by braiding and interweaving cotton, this braiding technique improves helps provide rigidity for an easier pour in our candles. Each wick has been primed in vegetable wax ensuring an all-natural burn.

 

WHY PHTHALATE-FREE?

Phthalates are esters of Phthalic acid and are used to dissolve raw materials when making fragrance oils. Recently, researchers have linked phthalates to asthma, breast cancer, low IQ, behavioral issues and more. We chose to use only phthalate free fragrance oils in creating our candles to ensure our product is guaranteed safe and natural.
