My Ecopot Candle Q & A

My Ecopot Candle Q & A

Why are most candles on the market harmful to the body and the environment?
Most candles are made from paraffin wax, which is a petroleum-based product, in other words, refined gasoline. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, paraffin wax contains toxins and thus can be harmful when burned. While paraffin wax burns, it releases these toxins, and exposure to this is above excess cancer risk. Also, the fragrance oils used in these candles are man-made, as opposed to essential oils, which are derived from plants.

What are the benefits of soy candles compared to traditional paraffin candles?
Unlike paraffin candles, soy candles offer benefits such as the following:
-They are biodegradable
-They burn cleanly with no petro-carbon soot, which is in paraffin wax. Petro-soot contains toxins that are harmful to the body
-They do not contain toxins or carcinogens
-Soy is a renewable resource, unlike paraffin, which is a by-product of petroleum
-Soy candles support American farmers while paraffin comes from the overseas-based petroleum market
-Our candles include essential oils and Vitamin E, which offer moisturizing benefits for the skin

What is the difference between fragrance oils and essential oils?
While fragrance oils are man-made and are imitations of other natural scents, essential oils are derived from nature, such as leaves, flowers, seeds, stems, and plant roots.

How are My EcoPot Candles safe for the environment?
My EcoPot Candle is a total green solution that is harmless to the environment and is safe to the body. All of our soy candles are all-natural, as they are made from 100% soy wax, pure essential oils, and Vitamin E, which are in compliance with FDA guidelines. Besides offering skin-nourishing features, the candleholders are also bio-degradable, as they are made from bamboo powder and grain husks, and are dyed with natural food-coloring. When the candle is gone, the candleholder can be reused as a flowerpot, for seedlings, or for growing herbs. Our larger-sized My EcoPot Candles offer pre-pressed holes in the bottom for drainage, and they come with an it for cuticles, or even dry heels or elbows. Just rub this onto your skin and your skin will feel softer and smell great!
