Candles are made from a variety of waxes and not all are suitable for Vegans, for example, those made from beeswax, also, candles made from paraffin wax may not always be suitable for Vegans.  This is because manufacturers may add a small amount of stearic acid (stearin) to strengthen these candles as paraffin wax is naturally soft.  We only say paraffin wax candles ‘may’ not be suitable for Vegans as, although strearin can be derived from plant based material from, for example; palm and soya, it can also be made from animal fats.

As you will appreciate, it can be difficult to determine whether a candle is fully suitable for Vegans, as there is no Law requiring that the manufacturer details the list of ingredients, products, or methods of manufacture, used in their candles.  Therefore, we have assembled a selection of candles especially for Vegans to choose from, that the manufacturers have advised are made from materials that are free from animal products and from materials that have not been tested on animals. 

PLEASE NOTE: The selection of these candles is based on the information provided by the manufacturer, importer or distributor, however, manufacturers may change the ingredients, packing materials and methods of manufacture, so occasionally we may miss a change.  If you have any concerns or comments about the Vegan credentials of a specific product, do not hesitate to e-mail us admin@theselections.co.uk and we will look into the issue.

The above selected products include candles sourced from manufacturers in the UK, Europe and around the world, so with careful selection you can also help to minimise the environmental damage caused by the product miles.  Below are details about a few of the brands you will find above:

Paddywax

Based in the USA, Paddywax claim to be the industry leaders in hand-poured, fragrance-infused, soy wax blended candles, and are renowned for creating beautiful candle containers that are designed to encourage people to recycle and reuse the containers once the wax runs out.  Hand poured using a clean-burning soy wax blend and alluring fragrance oils, combined with 100% cotton wicks, these candles are perfect for Vegans.

Vine House

These natural wax scented candles use a unique blend of plant wax, tried and tested for over 25 years, that burns cleanly and effectively.  These candles combine this special wax with cotton wicks, with a paper core, and are infused with fine fragrances to burn cleanly with very little soot.  As the ingredients are kept as natural as possible it allows a product free of parabens, sulphates and other harsh chemicals to be offered.

As animal products are not used in manufacture of the products, and the ingredients are not tested on animals, these long burn time candles are suitable for Vegans.  Also, the candles are hand and machine poured in the UK, reducing product miles, recycled glass is used in the manufacture of the jars, and the boxes are made from mainly recycled materials.

Spry Candles

100% natural wax candles produced in the United Kingdom using ingredients that include; coconut oil, olive oil and rapeseed wax made from UK grown rapeseed.  In addition creating luxurious candles, this means that these candles are suitable for Vegans, the composition of the wax results in these candles burning more slowly, for example, the 8cm glass jar candle burns for up to approximately 60 hours.  This compares to an approximate burn time of 40 hours for other similar sized candles.

These larger glass jar candles come in an attractive glass container with an elegant silver lid, making them attractive to reuse for storage, tea lights and other uses after the candle is burned.
