From the beginning, we knew we wanted to subvert expectations about the candle industry, blending tradition with progress. The conventional candle industry was, by and large, profit-driven and unconcerned with the holistic health of its consumers. Our approach has always been different.
We experimented with a variety of natural candle waxes in our process of innovation, eventually developing a blend of three honest, all-natural raw materials. We are proud to say that our candles are 100% sustainable and renewable.
Coconut Oil. Essential oils are not always tolerant to heat, which can be a problem when you’re designing a candle with a long burn time. Fortunately, the triglycerides found in coconut oil protect the essential oils in our candles and prevent them from getting burnt out!
Stearic Acid. Sourced from vegetable fat, this useful chemical compound is the key reason why our candles have a long burn time. Working in tandem with our other materials as a supportive and flexible host, stearic acid allows us to boast our impressive 30-hour burn times.
Beeswax. This harmonious fatty acid serves as a stabilizing force in our candles, giving them their solid and durable texture. What’s more, we only work with select Canadian Apiaries that charcoal filter their wax. This non-toxic process strips the famous amber colour from the beeswax, leaving it with the characteristic dreamy ivory tone of our candles.
FC Wax is a proprietary organic coconut wax manufactured in house, and each candle is hand-poured locally. We balance aromatherapy and ecology in an honest, unique way.
