Paraffin wax emits 11 different toxins including 2 acknowledged by the American Lung Association as carcinogens; toluene and benzene. When burned, paraffin wax releases carbon-petrol soot deposits that infiltrate not only home structure and furnishings but air ducts in the home allowing for thousands of dollars in reported damage long term. Furthermore, paraffin wax is a by-product of petroleum, a limited resource, that inhibits biodegradability with often impossible-to-remove residue. On the contrary, soy wax is derived from soybeans, a renewable resource that supports US soy farmers and in turn reduces dependence on international resources. Moreover, soy wax candles when burned emit no hazardous or carcinogenic toxins, is biodegradable reducing landfill pollution and the residue can be removed with minimal effort.
Phthalates are man-made chemicals widely used in industrial manufacturing. You can find phthalates used in plastic products, food contact applications, lotions, cosmetics and even in some time-release pharmaceuticals. Exposure to phthalates have negative effects including decline in male and female fertility, endocrine-related cancers and neurological and reproductive development in cases of early life exposure. Frequently used in cosmetics, foods, tobacco products and fragrance oils; vanillin poses another threat when burned. Recognized by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as a carcinogen; vanillin is a chemically modified substance derived from vanilla resulting in a more cost-effective and taste/scent enhancing solution for commercial use. As it burns, vanillin emits irritating fumes that wreak havoc on the human respiratory system. As a part of our pledge to product purity you will never find a trace of phthalates or vanillin in the creation of any product.
We pledge never to compromise purity and quality for the benefit of convenience and affordability.
