Why we use pure Coconut Wax for our candles

Coconut Wax

A Sustainable, Vegan Wax

Coconut wax is a sustainable wax produced by extracting, cleaning and filtering oil from coconut meat, before going through the process of hydrogenation. This results in a biodegradable and 100% natural, vegan wax. Coconut is an eco-friendly, renewable and high yield crop that can be harvested by hand without the use of pesticides and herbicides, due to its hard protective exterior, so fewer coconuts are used to create a non-GMO final product.

No Links To Deforestation

Consequently, coconut wax is not associated with deforestation like many other mass produced waxes on the market. The coconut tree is know as the 'Three Generation Tree', due to its 60-80 year life cycle resulting in sufficent farming for a family through three generations.

Burns At A Lower, Safer Heat

Coconut wax burns at a slower rate and lower temperature than any other wax on the market whilst retaining the fragrance strength. Like all natural waxes, coconut wax does not have the intensity of petroleum based wax.

Burns Longer & Cleaner With Less Waste

The lower heat generated enables coconut wax candles to burn longer, more consistently and cleaner, so wax completely burns away from the sides of the container, resulting in less waste.

Non-toxic, Smokeless & Soot Free

In addition to the clean burn, coconut candles are non-toxic, smokeless and soot free, ensuring there are no toxic carcinogens emitted into the the air, such as benzene, toulene and naphthalene found in petroleum based wax when burned.

As the wax is a pure substance, production costs are greater, as is the final end product. When considering this, the health benefits of using coconut wax and the pure white aesthetic of the wax far outweigh any of the disadvantages.
