Chunk Candles are made from 100% natural eco soy, they do not contain palm oil, they are free from GM materials, and they are kosher certified. You will be free from inhaling toxic chemicals with our product because we use soy wax. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of the soya bean. Soy wax has no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants, and burns cooler which gives you longer candle life unlike paraffin wax candles. Soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble which is better for the environment and your health.
How we started?
I was relaxing at home with my family the usual way: candles lit and a movie playing. I always loved scented candles that would fill the room with my favourite aromas. My mother loved the scented candles but found that it affected her breathing, having a lung condition she must be weary of what chemicals are around her. After the movie had finished, I flicked through a few channels until I happened to come across a segment on fossil fuel (also commonly known as crude oil). The segment covered the topic of toxic chemicals found in the home; candles were one of them. I looked over to the candles burning, blew them out and put them in the bin. I couldn’t believe my family, especially my beautiful elderly mother has been breathing in these toxic chemicals unknowingly. I had heard of soy candles before, but never thought much about them. After watching the segment, however, was when I went about researching information on paraffin wax and the benefits of using soy. This is how CHUNK CANDLES came to life!
