Our LAFCO candles are specially poured with you and our environment in mind. How? The answer is in our simple, pure formula: Soy wax, a small amount of paraffin wax (just enough to enhance the fragrance delivery), fragrance oil and pure cotton wick (or wicks!).
LAFCO chooses to work primarily with soy wax because it is a renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and carbon neutral resource. Candles that are made of soy tend to burn more cleanly and for a longer period of time than candles made entirely of paraffin.
Even more, LAFCO fragrances are phthalate free. Phthalates are chemicals that are often found in plastics and vinyl and have been listed as “reasonable anticipated to be a human carcinogen” by the National Toxicology Program. Because of its toxicity, we are opposed to any kind of chemical like this being a part of our final product.
Pure cotton wicks are a staple of LAFCO candles. Burning cotton wicks as opposed to other types of wicks can reduce carcinogens in the environment, reduce soot, and decrease the amount of harmful substances released during the burning of a candle. Cotton wicks also improve the fragrance delivery and burns longer.
