With sustainability and eco-consciousness at the heart of what we do, we didn’t want to create just any candle! So we spent time researching and discovering how our very own collection of candles could truly fit within the core values of Retroverse.
Our first finding was that wax made from the material ‘paraffin’ is used to create a large percentage of candles on the market today. However, being a byproduct of petroleum and containing toxins that pollute the air each time a paraffin candle is lit, we soon realised that this was not the wax for us!
After exploring a range of alternative waxes, our findings eventually led us to create a candle collection made from a pure beeswax and soy wax blend. Due to it being an entirely natural material, beeswax is widely considered the most environmentally friendly wax. Producing negative ions when burned, those ions help to neutralize pollutants in the air, resulting in beeswax candles having the purest of flames. As well as being natural, soy wax is also vegan, meaning it's also an incredibly eco-friendly material. The waxes natural components also mean that they’re 100 percent biodegradable! A additional reason we use a blend ratio of 80% beeswax and 20% soy wax is because whilst beeswax ensures a strong minimal drip candle with a good burn time, adding a blend of soy wax gives the candle a creamy and buttery finish / texture which helps to elevate the aesthetic of these beautiful pastel shades.
Carefully hand poured by us in the UK, these candles are truly special and are sure to bring a beautifully eye catching and unique ‘twist’ to any home!
