What are Vegan and Cruelty-free Candles?
Candles that are considered vegan and cruelty-free do not contain any animal by-products, and the ingredients of the candles have not undergone animal testing. For a scented candle to be considered vegan, it must not have any animal by-products such as beeswax used in its formulation. For candles to be considered cruelty-free, none of the ingredients within the formulation of the candles (wax, fragrance, additives, etc.) undergo animal testing at any point of production. It is important to look for both labels if you are seeking both characteristics when purchasing candles. For example, if a candle contains beeswax, but none of the ingredients have undergone animal testing, it could be labeled cruelty-free but is not considered vegan. For those looking to purchase candles that are both free of animal by-products and any animal testing, Halarosis offers many different room-filling fragrances. Halarosis candles are 100% soy wax, and none of the ingredients in the candles have undergone animal testing.
