Months of research went into determining what would make up a CORDA candle. It is important to me that these products are something I would use in my own home and would be proud for someone else to use in theirs.
That’s why all-natural coconut wax is the primary ingredient in my proprietary, all-natural wax blend: it’s free of toxins, pesticides, and GMOs, plus it’s sustainable, skin safe, and biodegradable.
And in addition to being much more environmentally friendly than a soy wax candle, these 6 oz. coconut wax candles burn 20%+ longer than a bigger 8 oz. soy wax candle! I like to say that my candles are small but mighty. And I love the great value they offer - you get a lot of candle for your money.
Since coconut wax melts very easily, it’s fortified with beeswax, which has deep liturgical significance, as well as other all-natural botanical waxes. But a candle is more than just wax, of course, and the ingredients of the wick and fragrance are just as important. The wick is made from cotton and paper, and primed with all-natural wax. The fragrances are all phthalate-free and are the best aromatics I've found.
The candle containers and lids are reusable and/or recyclable. In fact, I specifically designed the candle labels so that they can be removed with no adhesive left behind, making it easy to repurpose the container (it doubles as a fantastic rocks glass!).
Your typical candle, whether from a big box store or even a small batch maker, often contains harmful ingredients made with petroleum byproducts, endocrine interrupters, and heavy metals, to name just a few. There's absolutely none of that in CORDA candles.
I am forthright about what goes into my candles because I know those ingredients become part of your home and life. If you have any unanswered questions, you might find your answer in the FAQs or feel free to reach out to me directly.
