The expansion of Candlewic’s product range comes to address a growing demand for eco-friendly ingredients as more individuals become aware of the benefits of green alternatives. With an extended selection of natural candle waxes, the company aims to inspire crafters to opt for more sustainable options, such as soy candle-making or beeswax candles.
According to an article from the University of Central Florida (UFC), studies have shown that scented candles can emit hazardous chemicals like formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein. Although the levels are too low to pose a direct health threat, more research is needed to understand candles’ potential health risks fully. UFC suggests changing paraffin candles for natural waxes like soy and beeswax for those concerned about dangerous emissions.
Candlewic’s selection now features Cargill’s C-3 NatureWax for container candles, a pure soy wax known for its superior quality and environmental-friendly profile. Soy wax is a renewable resource that burns cleaner and longer than traditional paraffin wax, making it a preferred choice for crafters who prioritize sustainability.
Along with the C-3 NatureWax, Candlewic also offers natural waxes sourced from palm oil and coconuts. The store has candle supplies for different purposes, like pillar palm wax for container-free candles and an apricot coconut blend for minimal smoking and soot.
Candlewic’s broader selection extends to eco-friendly candle molds, wicks, and 100% natural fragrances for scented candles. They also provide dyes and kits for beginners.
Founded in 1970, Candlewic started in a basement as a hobby. Since then, the company has grown considerably and now ships its products internationally. In addition to candle supplies, they also offer products for soap making.
A spokesperson for the company said: “Whether you’re learning how to make candles at home, diving into the world of professional candle making, or looking for local candle makers in your area, the world of candles offers a radiant glow of possibilities. It’s an age-old craft infused with modern creativity.”
