RAW MATERIALS

Every year Baltic candles increases the amount of raw materials used in candle production, which are derived from recyclable resources, incl. from food production waste, thus reducing food industry waste.

Suppliers are carefully evaluated in terms of sustainability.

Daily quality control of raw materials at the company’s laboratory ensures an efficient use of resources.

Palm oil based raw materials are purchased with RSPO certificates, thus contributing to rainforest sustainability.

In purchasing cardboard package, we cooperate with the companies, offering packaging products with FCS certificate. This fact confirms that timber is harvested, caring for regeneration of forest, or from recyclable materials.

Plastic materials used for the creation of candles are produced also from recycled plastic.

Wicks are made from 100% natural EKO-TEX certified cotton.

CANDLES

To reduce environmental emissions, the company’s laboratory controls the soot index. The soot index of the candles we produce is < 0.2, being much lower than the level permitted by the regulatory enactments (<1.0).

Part of the products are certified in accordance with the prestigious standard Nordic Swan mark, confirming that the candles are not only of a high quality, but also are environmentally-friendly and produced from sustainable materials.
