At JustNow we lovingly hand pour all our own artisan candles using the latest fine quality vegetable wax available this is typically a soy and rape seed oil blend.
It is 100% natural, vegan and as it is plant based, renewable and environmentally friendly in contrast to paraffin wax which is a bi-product from the oil/petroleum industry, therefore a non renewable resource. Our wax is 100% plant based not a soy wax with paraffin wax added which is less expensive and easier to produce candles from and often labeled as soy blend!
Our natural wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax which means a longer and cleaner burn time with only minimal soot and releases no known carcinogens. Paraffin wax candles release a toxic soot which can stain walls and fabrics, according to the American Lung association contains 11 documented toxins 2 of which are known carcinogens toluene and benzene. Some people can experience headaches from burning paraffin wax candles.
Our natural wax is easy to clean with any spills being able to be wiped away and being biodegradable it is much easier to clean from fabrics. Containers can simply be cleaned with warm soapy water.
The wax is manufactured in Europe with some of the rape seed content being grown on British farms, supporting UK farmers.
If you want to be safe always ask for 100% natural plant based wax candles!
