We are living in an age where the ethical and environmental impacts of our consumption are no longer sidelined discussions. Today, the narrative has shifted towards a globally acknowledged need for more sustainable, biodegradable, and cruelty-free products. In line with this global trend and as a part of our unwavering commitment to planet Earth, we are proud to announce that we are now using 100% natural plant-based wax in our product line.
Moving Away From Petroleum Products
Historically, the candle industry, among others, has heavily relied on paraffin wax – a petroleum byproduct. While paraffin wax has its benefits, it’s a non-renewable resource and carries with it a range of environmental concerns. Its production involves a significant carbon footprint due to the extraction and refining of crude oil. Moreover, studies have suggested that paraffin candles can release harmful substances into the air when burned, posing potential health risks.
In response to these challenges and our commitment to sustainability, we have made the conscientious decision to entirely transition to 100% natural plant-based wax. Plant-based waxes are derived from renewable resources such as soy, palm, and coconut, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional paraffin wax.
Sustainable and Biodegradable
Choosing plant-based wax doesn’t just mean we’re reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. It also means we’re selecting a material that’s both sustainable and biodegradable. In other words, our wax doesn’t just come from the Earth – it returns to it too, breaking down in the environment without leaving harmful residues.
Our plant-based wax is responsibly sourced, ensuring the protection of natural habitats and biodiversity. This commitment to sustainability means that we can provide the quality our customers have come to expect while also protecting the environment and its delicate ecosystems.
Cruelty-Free and Vegan Friendly
Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the environment to the animals that inhabit it. We have made sure that our new plant-based wax is entirely cruelty-free, meaning no animal testing is involved in any part of the production process.
Moreover, our wax is vegan-friendly. While beeswax is often touted as a natural alternative to paraffin, it still relies on animal labor. Our plant-based wax, however, contains no animal products or byproducts, making it an ethical choice for those who adhere to a vegan lifestyle.
Transitioning to 100% natural plant-based wax is more than a business decision. It represents a commitment to our environment, our customers, and our future. We are proud to align ourselves with the worldwide shift towards sustainability and believe that every step, no matter how small, leads us closer to a healthier, greener planet. We invite you to join us in this journey towards sustainability and ethical consumerism. Together, we can create a difference, one candle at a time.
