WHAT’S IN YOUR CANDLES?

We carefully source clean, quality ingredients to produce our hand poured candles:

  • Made from 100% natural soy wax (vegan) manufactured from US grown soybeans.

  • Premium fragrance oils; free of phthalates.

  • Natural cotton wicks for a cleaner burn.

  • None of the ingredients we use have been tested on animals!

WHAT ARE PHTHALATES AND WHY ARE THEY DANGEROUS?

Phthalates are a family of industrial chemicals used as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products which can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system. French Press only uses premium fragrance oils in our candles - free of dangerous phthalates. 

WHY IS SOY BETTER THAN PARAFFIN?

  • Soy candles burn longer than paraffin.

  • Unlike paraffin, which is derived from oil, soy is a renewable resource. 

  • Soy burns cleaner and produces as much as 90 percent less soot than paraffin, reducing the amount of indoor air pollution produced over its burn time.

  • The emissions from paraffin candles build up on walls, staining the paint in your home. They also build up in upholstery fabrics and in carpets, affecting the air quality in your home.

  • The United States is the number one producer of soy in the world, so when you buy soy products, you're supporting American farmers.

  • Soy is biodegradable so if it spills on your tablecloth or clothing, it's a lot easier to clean than paraffin.

  • NOTE: Since soy is a vegetable-based product, you may find that the top of your candles may crystalize or not be as smooth after burning (as it hardens) compared to what you may be used to seeing with soy-blend or paraffin candles. It’s ok - that’s natural!
