We were the first international candle company to introduce clean burning Palm Wax scented candles and once again we are the first to introduce Palm wax/Hemp oil formula!
To understand why natural waxes such that of palm is the way to go, let’s look at the irrefutable facts. All articles do tell how eco-friendly palm oil plants are regarding how they are planted, harvested, and refined. The plants are farmed in agricultural designated lands that were left fallow due to the harvesting of exotic tropical woods like rubber. Also high standards have been set by the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil for Malaysia) and the MPOC (Malaysian Palm Oil Council) set to protect the endangered animals with the help of the WWF in the area of these plantations, environmentally safe farming practices that do not danger the land and natives who live nearby, etc.
The harvest of the palm oil does not affect the trees. The palm oil trees are left to grow for over 25 years while only the fruit bunches are harvested by hand with sharp hook type tools. Then the fruit is transported to refineries where the fruit is pressed, steamed and spun in centrifuges to separated husks and extract the oils – no harsh chemicals are needed to refine the oil, just water in the form of steam is needed. Byproducts like the husks are reused and turned either into electricity or turned into pulp to make paper and mulch.
Natural hemp is able to ‘breathe’ and is considered biodegradable. In other words, as a renewable resource, hemp grows quickly and easily, making it extremely cost effective. And we are supporting our American Farmers.
