We only use 100% natural pure soy wax at Urban Candle - it makes our candles burn brilliantly and fragrance perfectly.
Here's a few things you might like to know about the wax we use...
- Soy Wax is a 100% natural product - it contains no paraffin or toxins
- Soy wax lasts up to 50% longer than traditional paraffin candles
- It gives a clean burn and emits no soot (so you won't get black marks on your candle container or walls!)
- We believe it fragrances better
- It's a renewable resource - unlike paraffin, which is a by-product of petroleum
It's also important to use high quality fragrance oils in order to give our customers a great fragrance experience... and we believe that we use some of the best in the industry. Ever bought a candle that smells great in the shop but you struggle to smell it when it's burning? You're not alone - over 65% of consumers we surveyed have had a disappointing experience with a big brand candle - mainly because they couldn't smell it when it's burning!
All our fragrance oils are cosmetic grade, non-animal tested and manufactured in the UK.
We also use superior quality cotton core wicks in all our products to give an all round great candle experience.
Something you might like to know... For some manufacturers, fragrance oil is one of the cheapest ingredient in the candle - for us, it's one of the most expensive elements of our product - so you'll enjoy the difference.
