Are our candles vegan?
Yes! Most candles contain paraffin as their primary ingredient. Unfortunately, paraffin alone is too soft to make a good candle. So most candles also contain a small amount (up to 10 percent) of stearic acid to harden the wax and provide opacity. Paraffin is vegan and derived from petroleum, but stearic acid often comes from animal fat. While coconut-based stearic acid is widely available, most candle-makers opt for the much cheaper slaughterhouse by-product.
Some premium candles are made from beeswax, which is naturally a hard wax and doesn’t need stearic acid. But since beeswax is produced by bees it is obviously not vegan.
We use KeraSoy Container Wax which is biodegradable and vegan friendly. No animal products are used and no animal testing has been carried out in its manufacture. Our soy wax does not contain any additives. Soy wax is derived from the soybean and is a renewable, 100% natural alternative to traditional paraffin wax.
In our aim to be more sustainable, we offer refills of our containers to save on wastage and we only use Soy wax which natural, sustainable and is safe for pets.
We source high quality fragrance oils and ensure that they are vegan friendly, cruelty free, contain no palm oil and are Phthalate free.
We use two types of wicks - 100% cotton wicks and wood wicks made from maple so they are fully biodegradable and natural.
Our containers are either glass, ceramic (which can be refilled) or metal tins which can be refilled or recycled.
Our packaging is classy and sophisticated whilst remaining plastic free and ethical. All out ingredients and packaging is sourced with sustainability in mind.
