WHY WE’RE NOT USING PARAFFIN WAX
Did you know that 95% of the world's candle production is based on paraffin wax, a petroleum derivative? Only between 4% and 5% are made with natural ingredients. The combustion of this type of paraffin wax candles emits vapors and gases that are harmful to the health, as well as carcinogens. Tests by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) show dangerous chemical compounds in the paraffin candles such as acetone, benzene, toluene and carbon tetrachloride.
100% NATURAL, 100% ECOLOGICAL.
We only use certified organic soy wax for the production of our candles because it's an unlimited, renewable and biodegradable source, which makes it a sustainable product. Their combustion does not constitute any risks, because they are non-toxic. It does not increase the levels of CO2 in the environment when heated and does not produce waste or soot. Our wicks are 100% natural and are made of hemp filaments. Also, our soy wax will burn slowly, making our candles last 2 to 3 times longer than paraffin. This means that they can be used for much longer.
