What makes a candle non-toxic?

Indulging in the captivating glow and alluring scents of candles is undoubtedly an enjoyable pastime, but it's crucial to ensure that the materials in the candle are safe to breathe. At Yo Louie, we take this responsibility seriously and offer only phthalate-free candles and wax tarts that are free from any harmful chemicals. Here's why:

Phthalates are chemical compounds that are added to fragrance oils to intensify their aroma and make them last longer. Sadly, these compounds are carcinogenic, toxic, and potentially harmful to our health, particularly when burned and inhaled. Because phthalates don't dissipate in the air, you're inhaling the toxic chemicals long after the candle is extinguished.

That's why we're strict about selecting oils that are free from any harsh chemicals, phthalates, parabens, and other pollutants, so you can breathe easy and relish in the delightful scent of our candles. Phew!

By lighting our phthalate-free candles and wax tarts, you can bask in the rich fragrance of your home without worrying about potential side effects. As if that weren't enough, we only use 100% soy wax, avoiding paraffin or soy blends. Want to know why? Check out our 100% soy wax vs. paraffin and soy blends blog article!
