Wax is the largest component of a candle. It is the fuel that allows it to burn.

COMMIT to using & making clean candles

The candle sector heavily relies on paraffin for candle production because of its availability, production compatibility, and low price. Globally, more than 75% of candles are made using paraffin wax. Paraffine is a by-product of the petroleum industry, obtained as a solid residue from the fractional distillation of crude oil.

Paraffin wax doesn’t burn clean,  it produces black soot and releases toxic fumes when burnt.

Even though the exact health effects of paraffin wax are not entirely clear, its environmental impact is less ambiguous since it’s linked to the world’s most destructive industry. Crude oil, the origin of paraffin wax, is highly unsustainable. It has been a cause of large scale GHG emission and many environmental calamities.

Replacing paraffin with other waxes is one example of how we can swap out unsustainable materials for natural ones. A growing number of brands are using natural and sustainable waxes as an environmental solution to the non-renewable fossil fuel source of paraffin.

Clean ingredients for candle making are beeswax and vegetable oil-based waxes like soy, palm, coconut and rapeseed wax.

Look out for candles made with clean wax.

Why palm wax?

Palm wax is the sustainable alternative to other waxes.

Due to palm oil’s land efficiency, palm wax offers a sustainable alternative to other waxes. The advantage of palm wax is that it has similar or even superior burn quality as that of other waxes. Of course, you need to make sure that the palm oil used for making the wax comes from sustainable sources.

Palm wax is the most sustainable option for candle making when the palm oil used for producing the wax comes from sources that use 100% organic practices, protect forests & wildlife and support local farmers and communities.

 The only way to know that palm oil comes from sustainable sources is when full traceability is in place and the identity of the source has been preserved. This is where Palm Done Right comes in, ensuring full transparency all the way to the farmers that grow the palms that bear the fruit from which the oil is extracted.

Palm wax is a superior ingredient to other natural waxes
for making candles.

    Palm wax candles burn efficiently and clean without soot.
    Palm wax mixes well with other candle ingredients.
It has excellent compatibility with fragrance and essential oils, holds and disperses fragrances better, and the fragrance maintains evenly throughout the burning of the candle.
    It takes colors easily.
    Palm wax resists melting in hot summer months.
    It has a high contraction, which makes de-molding easy.
It can be easily handled to produce an infinite array of surface patterns ranging from complex crystalline designs to smooth solid colors.
    Palm waxes blend well with other waxes to further expand candle-making possibilities.

Palm wax can be used for all types of candles, like pillar and container candles.
