Why not Recommend Buying Scented Candles Made of Paraffin?

As a Silver Hot Stamping Candle Glass Jar Manufacturer, share it with you.

Most candles are made of paraffin wax, which is the final by-product in the petroleum refining chain, even after asphalt. When burned, its soot contains toluene and benzene, both of which are known carcinogens and are the same as the chemical substances emitted from diesel engine exhaust. In addition to causing cancer, it also "may cause damage to the brain, lungs and central nervous system, and cause developmental disorders."

A study by South Carolina State University compared a batch of unscented, unpigmented, and dye-free candles, all made from petroleum-based wax or vegetable wax. They finally concluded: "Plant candles do not produce any potentially harmful pollutants, (but) paraffin candles release unnecessary chemicals into the air."

Professor Ruhullah Massoudi of chemistry said: “For those who light candles every day or use candles all year round, inhaling these dangerous pollutants floating in the air may cause health problems such as cancer, common allergies and even asthma.”

In 2001, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a report stating that burning candles are a source of particulate matter and "may cause the lead concentration in indoor air to be higher than the EPA recommended threshold." In order to prevent the wick from tipping over like a cotton wick, some candle manufacturers sometimes use metal materials, and these metals release lead when they burn.

If you are a loyal candle lover, the safest choice is to use odorless organic soy or beeswax candles. They may be difficult to transmit odors, they will not look amazing, and they will not smell very enticing, but for that attractive light, it is not worth sacrificing your health, especially when there is healthier. When choosing.
