The Movement for Clean candle packaging

Candle packaging is now following in the footsteps of skincare products. People want to know what they're breathing in just as much as they want to know what they're putting on their skin – reading ingredient lists, ratings, and influencer tutorials. Some companies argue that their soy-based alternatives are safer for inhaling, while vocal "natural beauty" advocates claim that paraffin wax, which used in the majority of commercial candles, may pose health risks because it is a petroleum byproduct. Many experts disagree. According to dermatologist Rainelle Hirsch, when used as instructed, paraffin-wax candles do not appear to be harmful when inhaled.

There are numerous benefits to the clean beauty movement, ranging from increased consumer knowledge of what's in cosmetics to increased ingredient transparency; however, this movement has a tendency to pick out popular, controlled ingredients and mark them as dirty or harmful. The same can said for candle packaging. Soy-based candles outgrew the rest of the candle market in terms of output, rising by 180 percent in the last year, according to analytical intelligence firm 1010data.

Is it true that soy candles are safer?

Gonzalez claimed that she prefers soy or beeswax custom candle boxes that are fragranced with essential oils. She thinks it's "cleaner" because soy and essential oils are safe, which is a common misconception among customers.

Danielle Cordell, 27, of Dallas, Texas, tells Allure that she prefers soy candle boxes but eventually buys non-soy candles because they smell better. Her mother only used soy candles when she was a child.

"Most likely because she read an article about it that said, 'There are the only ones that are healthy,'" Cordell adds. To her, wholesale candles are an accessory, a piece of home decor that must complement the home or space in which it displayed. Cordell claims that something that is a "weird" color or seems out of place would not fit in her house.

“It's uncertain if there's really a difference,” said Katie Thomas, executive director of the Kearney Consumer Institute. "Even if you ask a customer in a survey, 'Do you always buy soy candles or do you try?' they'll say yes, but in fact it comes down to product effectiveness."

Kathy LA Vanier, CEO of Renegade wholesale Candle boxes Company and former president of the National Candle Association, claims that neither sort of wax is harmful to one's health. According to LA Vanier, the combustion properties of the fragrance oil inside a candle determine how "clean" it burns – the rate at which it burns and the amount of visible soot created.

"It's a green resource with a little bit of a feel-good message for us," LA Vanier says of soy wax, which is becoming more common due to the clean beauty boom. Furthermore, soybeans grown in the United States, and purchasing soy-based Candle gift boxes helps American agriculture (the U.S... Paraffin wax often imported, with the majority of it coming from Chinese refineries.

"No existing research indicates how much soot is inhaled from candles and how much is too much and bad for you," says cosmetic chemist and research scientist Marisa Plessis.

 

So, which candles are the most sanitary?

There is no such thing as an entirely "clean" Candle gift boxes. However, if you want the "cleanest" burn possible, experts recommend that proper candle etiquette can take precedence over a preferred form of wax.

Candle boxes are designed to burn for three to four hours, according to LA Vanier. She likened a candle that burns too long to a car that overheats. According to a 2013 report, the wax liquefies, begin to burn at a faster rate, and produces an excess of soot – which isn't good for inhaling. Another 2001 study stated that scented candles emit more soot than non-scented candles due to the way solid paraffin wax interacts with liquid fragrance oils (at room temperature). Wicks should be trimmed on a regular basis to reduce soot.

Consider putting together a candle boxes wardrobe. Rather than leaving the same candle burning all day, light a new one every few hours to maintain a steady burning rate.

Newer brands, such as Grow Fragrance, claim that their 100 percent soy wax custom candle boxes outperform the competition. The fact that it is entirely made of soy is significant, according to founder Daniel Swim, who believes that plant-based alternatives are superior to paraffin alternatives.

"I don't believe paraffin wax is necessarily harmful," Swim says. "I believe it is fundamentally unsustainable." Paraffin wax derived from crude oil, a limited resource extracted from the field. Every year, soybean crops regrow.

Grow Fragrance's soy wax comes from Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina soybean growers, and the $34 candles are packaged in reusable concrete vessels manufactured in South Carolina (refills are $22, or $40 for two). Swim also operates Candle Science, a production business that creates and sells natural fragrances for home fragrances. Last year, Candle Science’s revenue grew by 150 percent.

How to Choose the Right Candle for You

According to LA Vanier, if the scent is essential, paraffin custom boxes "throw," or circulate, fragrance better than soy Essential oil boxes, lit or unlit. For those who use perfume to improve their mood, the stronger fragrance of paraffin candles can be more soothing. If you want to help American agriculture or are searching for plant-based alternatives, a soy candle is a way to go.

The controversy about sustainability is more complex. Some customers place a premium on natural and plant-based fragrances in their candles. Others assume that synthetic, or manmade, materials are safer for the environment than sourcing natural ingredients, and would prefer synthetic scent in their beauty products.
