Many popular brands of store bought candles are made with paraffin wax and emit hazardous fumes while burning. We recognized the urgent need to avoid these toxic chemicals to protect our own health and yours.
We learned so much that we did not know about candles when we were researching how to make the best candles on the market:
Did you know? Paraffin wax is distilled from petroleum, a by-product of gasoline production. Burning paraffin wax candles releases dangerous chemicals, such as carcinogenic benzene and toluene, into the air we breathe, which have been linked to lung diseases such as cancer and asthma.
Did you know? Many of the fragrance oils used in paraffin wax candles contain phthalates, chemical compounds that help bind the fragrance to the wax, that are linked to a wide range of negative health effects including hormone disruption, low birth weight in babies, organ damage, conduct disorders in children, and more.
To protect our family, friends, and YOU from the health dangers associated with paraffin wax candles, we started making our own healthier, clean burning, long burning, premium quality SOY WAX candles to share.
