Our Wax vs. Other Waxes

At Simply Bare Candle Co. we want to provide you with the most natural, eco-friendly, and health conscious products. We can’t achieve that by making our candles with waxes commonly used on the market today.

Most candles are made of petroleum based paraffin wax. When burned, this wax releases highly toxic benzene and toluene into the air. Inhalation of these dangerous pollutants drifting in the air could contribute to the development of health risks like common allergies, asthma, and even cancer.

Because of this, soy wax has gained popularity with candle makers. Soy wax is a more environmentally conscious option than those made from paraffin wax, but not by a lot. Soy wax is a by-product of the soybean industry which carries with it the concerns of deforestation and the use of pesticides and fertilizers to grow soybeans.  

Our luxurious coconut apricot wax is eco-friendly to harvest and sustainable with a large crop renewal per acre. Combining apricot oil to our 100% coconut wax produces the cleanest palate to blend our natural essential oils and create uniquely sophisticated fragrances. 

Our FDA approved wax is all natural, vegan, soy free, petroleum & phthalate free, non toxic, and renewably sourced. Our wax burns cleaner & longer than other waxes, making it safe to inhale, so you have more worry-free hours to enjoy your favorite fragrances.
