We (Cameron & Annabel 👋) first thought of Pascoe Candles back in December 2019 with the intention to handcraft eco-conscious, 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, and we wanted to create something that married eco-friendliness with a classic style.
What are our vegan-friendly candles made from?
We use a natural blend of rapeseed and coconut wax to create our candles, which contains no palm, dyes, phthalates 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 based in the UK. 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 ask us 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 before winging their way to your home.
Why we don't use essential oils
Although essential oils are great in some forms, some essential oils are deemed as unsafe for us in candles. Why? When heated, the chemical composition in certain essential oils can change making them potentially toxic and causing 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.
