GENERICS candles are made of a natural soy bean wax and has no unnatural additives. They are formaldehyde free and have a kosher certification.
We choose to use an organically grown, all natural soybean wax that is free from formaldehyde, unnatural additives, preservatives, and plasticisers that may interfere with the purity of the wax during its lifetime.
Soybean wax is a renewable resource, it is biodegradable and cleans up with plain old soap and water. Soybean wax burns with zero petro soot, creating petro soot free candles. Soybean wax is cruelty free, no bees are harmed during harvest.
Soybean wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax and because of this will burn slower or longer than paraffin candles. This makes them perfect for everyday burns, just the way we like it.
We choose soybean wax that is grown and harvested from sustainable soy farms in the USA. Our wax is soft, custardy and clean.
We promote our product as a vegan candle.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY & SOCIAL IMPACT
We encourage upcycling of all GENERICS candle glass with our Half Price Refill service that you can take advantage of when you return any glass GENERICS vessel to our stores. By refilling with GENERICS you reduce your carbon footprint, landfill waste, and save money; contributing to a cleaner and more affordable future.
With looking towards a better future in mind, for every 130 wood wicks we source and use from FSC-certified mill farms, ONE TREE IS PLANTED to restore the environment. The farms arranging these initiatives in Central and South America, Africa, and Asia encourage sustainable practice and empower their communities to incorporate tree planting in their agricultural activities.
We regularly participate in social and economical fundraising partnerships to assist our community in living a life lead with wellness.
