What ingredients are used in your candles?
Wax: Our luxurious, US-made, vegan wax blend is made of natural apricot and coconut waxes that are gluten-free, toxin-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and come from renewable sources. The entire blend utilizes only FDA approved waxes. This luxurious Coco Apricot Crème contains a minuscule amount of highly refined food-grade paraffin wax. This is included because it has been found to enhance the performance and give an excellent hot throw. But don't worry!! Scientific studies have proven highly refined food-grade paraffin wax to burn just as cleanly as other all natural waxes. And the fact that it is highly refined food-grade puts it in the all natural category ensuring this wax is completely clean burning.
Wicks: Our US-made, hand-crafted wooden wicks are an eco-friendly option to the traditional cotton wick. They are made in the US from clean-burning, FSC certified wood. As an added bonus, there is no stinky smell when you blow them out like you get with cotton wicks.
Fragrance: And, for the most important part — our fragrances! It's important to understand that the only fragrances that are completely natural are essential oils; however, these alone do not work well for candle making. Essential oils have a poor throw, degrade in heat, and don’t blend well with wax. So, since we can't use pure essential oils alone, we use the next best option; the cleanest fragrances available on the market!
Our fragrances are made in the USA and derived from essential oils. They exclude ALL ingredients found on the California Proposition 65 List. This list includes naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals like phthalates, carcinogens, and mutagens, which are known to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other reproductive harm.
From wax to wick, a Moxie & Grace candle is sure to offer you the familiar joy of aromatherapy with zero guilt.
