Our Dedication to Clean Candles
We at H. Porter Candle Company are dedicated to providing the cleanest ingredients possible in our products so you can feel safe and confident in the candle you're burning in your home.
We use 100% soy wax for each and every one of our candles and wax melts. Soy is both a renewable and a biodegradable resource. And unlike its' more popular counter part, paraffin wax, soy is completely non-toxic and does not emit petrol carbon soot. Soy also burns much cleaner and slower giving you everything you want out of a good quality candle.
We have always used phthalate free fragrances but more recently we have updated the majority of our fragrances to exclude the following "hazardous groups" from each of our scents:
✖ Carcinogens: These are materials known or thought to cause cancer.
✖ Mutagens: Materials that change the DNA of a cell, harming the cell and causing diseases like cancer.
✖ Reproductive toxins: Toxins that adversely affect reproductive organs and increase the risk of birth defects.
✖ Organ toxins: These are toxins that can cause adverse effects or disease within specific bodily organs.
✖ Acute toxins: Toxins that can cause adverse effects from a single exposure. Generally, this would be accidental exposure like spillage or ingestion.
We have perfected the size of our 100% cotton and paper wicks to allow for the perfect melt pool allowing for longer burn time, less smoke, and little to no mushrooming.
We believe in complete transparency and would be more than happy to discuss any and all questions you have about our candles. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
