Second City Candle Company arose from a personal love of scented candles and the desire for a high quality and beautiful product. After months of research and testing, we believe we have developed the perfect scented candle. All of our candles have a long burn time, burn clean and have a superior ‘scent throw’. Also, every Second City Candle can be custom ordered to fit your wants and needs.
Each Second City Candle is hand poured in small batches to produce the highest quality product. Our candles feature all natural Certified Kosher, soy wax made from soybeans grown in the USA with natural lead-free cotton wicks. All fragrance oils are of the highest-quality, Phthalate FREE, and adhere to RIFM and IFRA standards for safety and purity. The maximum amount of fragrance that the wax will allow is used so that you get the best possible scent experience.
Our Candles never contain:
- Paraffin or other non-soy based waxes
- Wicks containing Lead or Zinc
- Fragrances containing Phthalates
There are numerous benefits of a soy candle over the traditional paraffin wax candle:
- Soy wax is cleaner burning than paraffin wax. All wax produces some soot but soy wax does not produce the petrol-carbon black soot associated with paraffin candles and emits no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants.
- Soy wax is a sustainable, renewable and natural wax making it environmentally conscious unlike paraffin candles which are made from petroleum.
- Soy candles burn cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than an equally sized paraffin candle and it will retain its scent evenly throughout its life. It will not lose its scent half way through like some paraffin candles.
- Soy wax is naturally biodegradable and water soluble which makes accidental spills easier to clean.
- Supports American farmers.
