Why soy wax?

- Soy candles burn 30 to 45% longer than paraffin candles
- There less black smoke when burning soy wax candles
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.
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 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.
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!
For our soy candles we use non-toxic oils of premium quality, made for us in Europe. Also, these oils are specially made for soy wax candles which makes them perfect to mix with the wax.
