Candle

We love nature, since our scents are inspired by it. We also like to take care of nature and want you to have a sustainable choice when it comes to candles. On this page you will find all information about the soy wax and other materials we use and how we try to be as sustainable as possible.

Soy wax

Our wax is made from soybeans and come from family farms in the USA. The wax burns clean which means it is nontoxic and there are no added chemicals. Also, the wax has a lower melting point which allows the candle to burn longer. Soy wax is very easily to clean using water and soap, may you have spilled some!

Rapeseed wax

Rapeseed is a crop that grows in various places in Europe. There are even more and more places in the Netherlands where it grows. The oil from the crop is processed into a wax that is suitable for all kinds of purposes, including, you guessed it, candles. The local origin makes rapeseed a sustainable raw material and also perfect for our Nomad Collection.

Wick

The eco cotton lead-free wick is carefully chosen. The right thickness and the right size for the right candle. All to make sure it burns at its best!

Premium oils

For our soy candles we use non-toxic oils of premium quality, made for us in Europe. Also, these natural based oils are specially made for soy wax candles which makes them perfect to mix with the wax. They are different from essential oils, which are distilled and are not always suitable for candles. Or very expensive and this way a candle becomes unaffordable. The oils we use are on a natural basis and suitable for candles so the quality can be guaranteed and the price remains affordable.

Labels + ink

The labels on the jars are printed on recycled paper using eco ink.

Wrapping

Sample boxes

The boxes we use to pack your sample set or apothecary candles are made from 75% recycled paper. In addition, we use paperwise for the Wood, Nomad and Season Collection. Paperwise is agricultural waste and a beautiful reusable product.

Webshop wrapping

When you receive a package from Brandt it is well possible you have boxes and protection material that we got from our own retailers. If we do buy and use new boxes and stuffing material is all biodegradable and eco-friendly.
