We (Cameron & Annabel 👋) first thought of Pascoe Candles back in January 2020 with the intention to handcraft eco-friendly, cruelty-free vegan candles free from soy, paraffin, palm and beeswax here in our sea-side home on the beautiful Norfolk coast.
We've always loved the way that candles can instantly transform a space and enhance your mood, but couldn't believe how harmful normal paraffin candles can be. Thus, we set out to find a healthier, more environmentally conscious option.
What are our vegan candles made from?
We use a natural blend of rapeseed and coconut wax to create our organic candles, which is guaranteed to contain zero palm, dyes, phalates or synthetic additives. We also use recycled labels, re-usable glass jars, cotton core wicks and plastic-free packaging.
To ensure our products are safe we use top quality fragrances from reputable suppliers. We carefully analyse the ingredients they use and ensure they have the relevant SDS (safety data sheet) and are CLP (classification, labelling and packaging) compliant. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our candles and wax melts are hand-poured, wicked and labelled in our home by us and carefully quality checked (along with the help of our Chief Quality Checker, Prince 🐶).
Proud to be soy-free
You've most likely seen other vegan 'eco-friendly' soy candles, however we bet you didn't know that to be labelled as 100% pure soy, the candle only has to contain 51% soy wax. Unlike soy wax, our wax does not rely on deforestation and harsh chemicals.
Why we don't use essential oils
Although essential oils can be great in some forms, we do not believe that using them in candles is safe. Why? When heated, lots of essential oils become toxic and can cause side effects if inhaled for too long. Some essential oils are also not safe for use when pregnant or around children and pets. Because of this, we only use fragrances from reputable suppliers with the relevant safety information available.
