Rapeseed wax is made from the oil of locally grown rapeseed plants, thus providing a natural and sustainable raw material. The cultivation and production take place in Germany. This wax has a dense, creamy to oily consistency with a colour that varies from light ivory to beige. Rapeseed wax has an exceptional ability to contain scented oils, which allows their full aroma to be released during burning.
Sunflower wax and rapeseed wax can hardly be distinguished in their external appearance. Because of the gentle refinement of natural sunflower oil, its wax is characteristically bright yellow or vanilla in colour. Sunflower wax candles are a desirable product due to their calm and long burning process. The smooth surface gives the candle an especially elegant appearance. The experience of this product is rounded off by the soothing scent of the essential oils.
Plant based palm wax is obtained as stearic acid from the fruit of the oil palm. As members of the international RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil), Kerzenfarm supports the sustainable management of palm oil plantations. Kerzenfarm has been RSPO certified since March 2021. This certification indicates that all links in the supply chain are tested and certified according to the guidelines of the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil and are therefore traceable from the source to the final product.
The high-quality beeswax is a metabolic product of the honeybees, which is used to build brood and honeycombs. The honey bees secrete the originally clear- and whitecoloured wax from their glands. The typical yellow color is caused by the absorption of pollens, which contain the natural dye carotene. Beeswax candles burn with a calm flame and have a long lasting burn-time. They are characterised by their natural scent of honey and silky surface.
Paraffin is a by-product of the petroleum industry and is therefore of mineral origin. The paraffin used by the Kerzenfarm is highly purified, RAL certified and food safe. Our paraffin candles burn gently without dripping or smoking and have a long burn time.
Kerzenfarm only uses natural essential oils or natural scented compositions. These substances are obtained from natural sources by steam distillation, extraction or pressing of the plants or the
