Cruelty Free, Vegan and Biodegradable, What Do They Mean?
As we move towards the New Year, more and more people are becoming aware of being sustainable and opting to buy vegan, cruelty free and biodegradable products. If you’re not already selling in this way, it may be time to look at your ingredients and how you promote your products. This guide will explore what it means to be vegan, cruelty free and biodegradable and how you can become more eco-friendly with your candles, wax melts and home fragrance products.
Terms to know
If a product is marked vegan, it certifies that products do not contain any animal extracts or animal by-products in the ingredients or the manufacturing process.
If a product is marked cruelty free, it means that no products or activities harmed or killed animals during the testing process.
If a product is marked biodegradable, it refers to the ability of materials to break down and return to nature.
If a product is eco-friendly, it means that it is not environmentally harmful. When it comes to products, that means everything from production to packaging needs to be safe for the environment.
Sustainable living means prioritising the use of natural and renewable resources instead of creating excess waste and depleting environmental resources for future generations.
Being sustainable with Supplies for Candles
To make life just a little bit easier, we’ve added icons to all of our products that are vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly so that you can easily spot them when shopping around!
Opting for vegetable waxes over waxes such as paraffin is one of the best ways to narrow down your search for vegan and cruelty free waxes for your candles and wax melts. Our brand-new wax, Ecosoya, is a sustainable, vegan friendly and biodegradable wax that is designed to give only the best scent throw and smoothest of finishes and it's made here in the UK. Our website is also home to a range of 100% vegan and cruelty fragrance oils, glitters, micas and dyes, which means you can craft even more eco-friendly creations!
Bring some eco friendly sparkle to your candle designs with our Bio-Glitter range, a variety of candle glitters that are ultra fine and perfect to decorate outside surface areas of wax candles and inside of wax melts. Bio-glitter® is based on a biodegradable film that is made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations!
