WCD FAQ'S

WCD FAQ'S

FAQ Section

 

What kind of wax do you use?

We use a few different types of waxes for our candles & melts. Some of our candles are made with 100% soy, while the rest of our candles & all of our melts are a soy-paraffin blend. The National Candle Association has posted studies proving that the emissions from a burning candle no matter what type of wax are all safe to use & one is not more harmful than the other.

What kinds of oils do you use?

We use synthetic fragrance oils. Synthetic fragrance oils are engineered specifically for candle use, while essential oils are not. Though EO oils can be used in candles, they are very expensive & their performance is not always consistent. The fragrance oils we use are all regulated by IFRA (international fragrance association.) They control & regulate all fragrance oil manufacturing to make sure they are safe to use.

 

Do you have a store front/are you candles available in stores?

 Currently we are online only, though we do occasionally attend in person events & you can even find some of our candles in local shops like Sideshow Gallery & Space Oddities!

 

Do you make custom candles?

No. Though we have done some custom candles & collaborations in the past, being the small team that WCD is, it is currently not feasible for us. Creating scent blends, testing wax & fragrance can be costly & we just do not have the means for that at this time. On occasion we have done some collaborations, & depending on our schedule if you think we would be a good fit please email us!

 

Are your candles clean burning?

Yes. We perform thorough testing of each & every scent we create. All candles, no matter what type of wax should be clean burning. It all comes down to proper wicking.

 

Do you accept containers to recycle?

As much as I would love to reuse every single container, as I am just one human behind this business it is just not possible right now. The amount of time it takes to remove every single label & sticker is too much to add on, and they don’t always come off entirely. They are accepted at most recycling centers.

 

Do you sell wholesale?

Yes! Please email whitecitydevilcandles@gmail.com

 

 Do you have free samples?

No. Free samples cost me money, but we are currently working on some small sample sizes for purchase.

 

Are you candles vegan?

Yes, and we only purchase our supplies from cruelty-free manufacturers.
