Health

After learning that most mass produced, big box store candles are made from a petroleum byproduct (paraffin) - we knew we wanted better for our family. That is why 'Health' is one of the top three motivators for our company.

We use a 100% natural soy wax that is blended with all natural wax botanicals. Some companies may brand their candles as a 'soy wax blend' which is usually a small amount of soy mixed in with mainly paraffin. This saves costs while reaping the benefits of marketing their candles as "soy". We feel strongly that the added cost of pure natural soy is worth knowing there is no paraffin in our candles.

Benefits of natural soy wax:

  • Cleaner burning (less soot)

  • No release of chemicals as a byproduct of burning paraffin wax (petroleum)

  • Longer lasting - lower melt point of soy wax means our candles last longer than traditional paraffin candles

  • Sustainable and renewable resource, grown in the US and originating from soy plants

Our fragrances are sourced from one supplier which is the only one that has developed, tested and produces a truly healthy fragrance line that surpasses industry standards set by IFRA (International Fragrance Association)  Most other fragrance suppliers will sell phthalate free oils but may have other toxins that are not excluded.

 

The fragrances we use excludes (in addition to phthalates):​

  • Carcinogens

  • Mutagens

  • Reproductive toxins

  • Organ toxins

  • Acute toxins

Knowing that our supplier has taken extra steps to provide an industry leading line of truly healthy scents without the harmful chemicals listed above is what solidified our choice to use them. We will continue to do so as long as they maintain this high level of quality. 

In addition to using 100% natural soy wax in our candles, the wicks we use are also primed with natural soy wax. We source our wicks from a supplier that produces a cotton wick with interwoven paper filaments and then primed with natural soy wax. We were cautious in choosing the best wicks and wanted to ensure that they were not primed with paraffin which is often done (even in conjunction with natural soy wax candles). 

If you're anything like our family, candles are burning regularly in common areas of our home. Because of this, we wanted to ensure that we are producing the best and healthiest quality candles possible. If you have any questions or comments please reach out to us at 2sonscandleco@gmail.com.
