The soy wax we use is produced from soybeans grown in the US. Some of the benefits of soy wax are that it burns cleaner and slower than other waxes. Soy is a renewable and sustainable resource that is carbon neutral and eco-friendly. And as a bonus, soy wax is naturally vegan.
The wicks we use are made up of braided cotton with thin paper threads to provide structure without the need of a core. They are zinc and lead free.
All of our fragrance oils are phthalate-free and do not require a prop 65 warning. We choose to use fragrance oils over essential oils due to better scent throw, cost, and overall performance.
