Details & Dimensions

These candles are distinguished by their extremely shiny finish achieved by a natural cellulose-based varnish which is allowed to completely dry for up to six days. They are packaged in stylish packaging gift boxes that make them a perfect gift item.

Are candles made of wax? The answer is “yes”, and the answer is “no”. Yes, candles are made of wax, but what does wax mean? We often think that wax means beeswax, but this is not the case. Wax is one of the states that materials can take (like solid, liquid, paste, gel). “Wax” has two main features: it must have a pretty low melting point and it must be rather malleable at room temperature. All candles are made of wax exactly because these features allow them to work properly. Waxes can be vegetable (soy wax, palm wax, stearin, etc.), animal (beeswax, stearins, etc.), mineral (paraffines), and synthetic (very special, not in use in the candle industry). Most candles on the market are made of paraffin or vegetable waxes.
