Natural vs. Synthetic
There is a lot of controversy in the candle industry over the word
'natural' as in natural waxes. Some paraffin (petroleum derived) candle manufacturers
claim their products are as natural as any vegetable-based wax.
We avoid the issue by using the terms "vegetable" or "100%
natural Palm Wax™".
The same controversy is true of the word 'natural' in the health
food industry and that's why they have gone to the trouble of creating
standards to certify organic foods. At this time we are not able
to certify that all our wax is organic but we are working with plantations
that are willing to convert to organic methods because they have
only been using modest amounts of approved fertilizers or pesticides.
Our Palm Wax™ is certified to be kosher, food grade, and does not contain
synthetics or petrochemicals in any form. We are the first to work
with growers in Java to develop organic methods for palm oil production.
At Aloha Bay, we believe the richest source of healthy products
come from pure plant essences. For those consumers interested in
the purest products, we offer the highest grade of pure vegetable
palm wax combined with 100 percent pure essential oils.
Our candles are as safe to use as the soaps and lotions sold exclusively
in health food stores. They are all made from the same palm oil.
