About Bare Products

Bare Candle Company creates candles that are vegan friendly, cruelty-free, paraffin-free, phthalate free. We only use 100% soy wax from soybeans that are grown in the USA. We strive to keep candles simple, with clean ingredients.

While a lot of people are looking for candles with essential oils, recent studies have shown that essential oils become toxic when burned. Please keep your essential oils to non-heated uses such as diffusers and soaps. 

When it comes to being environmentally friendly + sustainable, synthetic fragrances are far better for the environment. To make 1 pound of essential oils, it takes 10,000 pounds of rose petals for rose, 1,500 individual lemons for lemon. Some favorite scents, including Sandalwood, Rosewood, and Cedarwood are all on the list of being endangered, yet essential oils companies still continue to harvest the plants. 

'Synthetic' fragrance have been getting a bad rap for being unhealthy and toxic, and that is not entirely true. The fragrances used at Bare go under testing to deem they are safe and free from toxins. While the toxin-free synthetic fragrances exclude Bare from the all-natural category, over 90% of our candle contents are natural + derived from plants, and 100% are sustainable. Our packaging is 100% recycable. 

Soy candles are made from soy wax. Soy wax is created from the oil of a soybean. The majority of USA soy beans are grown in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana. Bare Candle Company only used 100% soy wax from soybeans grown in the United States.

Label and marketing laws in the USA allow sellers to market their candles as “pure soy” if the candle contains at least 51% soy wax. What is the other 49%? It could be paraffin, beeswax, or coconut wax. Most “pure soy” sellers use paraffin because of its cheaper pricing. At Bare, we only use 100% soy wax grown in the USA.

+ Natural: Soy wax is made from soybeans. Our 100% soy wax is grown in the USA.

+ Cleaner Burn: Soy wax non-toxic, unlike its petroleum-based competitor, paraffin wax. Soy wax also gives off substantially less soot (the black smokey substance that comes from burning a candle). Candle users often report of headaches while burning paraffin candles (due to the toxins within the candle).

+ Longer Burn: 100% soy candles last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. Soy wax is denser; this means it takes more heat to melt the wax, meaning that the candle takes longer to burn through.

+ Environmentally Friendly: 100% soy wax is biodegradable!

+ Better Scent: Candle scent is given off when the wax is melted. Since a soy wax candle takes longer to burn, the scent is gradually released. There is not an instant, overpowering scent. Most people prefer the gradual released scent to the instantly strong scent.

Phthalate is a chemical used in cheap fragrance oils. You can not smell or taste them, which makes them unnoticeable in items such as candles. There has been little research on phthalates. Current research shows it may cause cancer and affect human reproduction or development. Some research says not all phthalates are bad, but we choose to avoid phthalates altogether.

Our wicks are made of cotton. They are coated in a vegetable wax to provide rigidity during production. These wicks are vegan friendly, and cruelty free.

You should trim the wick before each burn. Trim the wick to ¼ to a ½ inch. Too small of a trim could cause a smaller melt pool, and too large of a trim could burn through your candle faster. Too large of a trim could also cause your candle to “dance”. If this happens, blow out the candle, trim the wick to proper size, and relight.

Of course! Use the jar to make a new candle, pot a plant, wax melt holder, pen or pencil holder. We would love to see photos of your recycled jars. Tag us on Instagram @barecandlecompany
