Why is it important to Buy Non-Toxic Candles?
Knowing your candles inside and out can be a daunting task. Rather than hunting down every chemical in every candle, it's better to find a company who's put in the work for you. Keep reading to see why Citrus & Cane candles are non-toxic and safe for your home and family.
Historically, the fragrance industry has never been transparent about safety. It was almost impossible to get ingredient lists from manufacturers which means there was a time it was impossible to know if there were any health risks related to those ingredients.
Thankfully OSHA now enforces the disclosure of potential hazards of a substance in a commercial facility, which beautifully trickles down to the fragrance industry. When choosing safe fragrances for scented candles, there are 5 main hazard groups a candlemaker should avoid:
- reproductive toxins
- organ toxins
- acute toxins
At this point, you may be asking yourself why would fragrance manufacturers sell products that are dangerous? And the answer is simple: a lot of the dangerous chemicals in fragrance are what allow the candle to smell so great. After all, what sells a candle is the cold throw, and what makes a customer shop again is the hot throw.
When we are on the hunt for new fragrance oils, it's important to us that those fragrances are not on California's Prop 65 list. After all, a chemical that is dangerous in California isn't any safer in another state. It's equally as important though that the candle performs well. Our candles can be the safest in the world, but if they don't smell good lit or unlit, who really cares?
We go above and beyond to ensure our candles are non-toxic and highly scented. It's a delicate balance to ensure we're using high-quality oils that still perform well in candles. We will always have a people over profit mentality so if that means our fragrance oils cost a little more to ensure they're safe, then we don't mind one bit.
