Wax

Soy Wax: Soy wax is a natural, renewable and biodegradable wax that burns slowly and cleanly. Although a lot of companies are switching to soy wax we take it a step further to make sure our supply chain is as sustainable as possible. Gaia’s Light uses NatureWax® in all our soy candles. “Cargill is committed to sustainable soy production, including protection of sensitive environments, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and promotion of responsible working conditions.”

Palm Oil

Palm Oil can be a hot topic for a lot of people. Gaia’s Light utilizes Palm oil in its massage candles due to its health benefits for your skin and hair. Palm oil contains beta carotene. “Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that kills off the free radicals that can lead to premature aging by destroying your body cells, including those of your skin. Palm oil is also a natural source of vitamins A, C, and E, which also have antioxidant properties.” Our palm oil comes strictly from members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). RSPO certification requires producers to follow strict standards to cultivate sustainable palm oil. RSPO criteria states, "no primary forests or areas which contain significant concentrations of biodiversity (e.g. endangered species) or fragile ecosystems, or areas which are fundamental to meeting basic or traditional cultural needs of local communities (high conservation value areas), can be cleared.” Additionally, there are standards that require fair treatment of workers according to local and international labor rights standards.

Wick

ECO Wicks: Gaia’s light avoids wicks containing metal cores of any types. Eco wicks are specifically designed to work with natural waxes. They are flat, coreless, cotton wicks with unique thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability. They are also designed to reduce the “afterglow” and smoke that can be seen with paper wicks.
