Phthalate-Free Candles: A Step Towards a More Sustainable, Health-Friendly Lifestyle

Phthalate-Free Candles: A Step Towards a More Sustainable, Health-Friendly Lifestyle

In the tranquil expanses of Colorado, where the air is pure and the landscapes untouched, Mountainside Woodwick Candles crafts candles with a commitment to sustainability and wellness. Amid a world bustling with innovation and a collective shift towards more conscious living, we're proud to contribute to the movement with our phthalate-free candles. These candles are not just an accessory to your spaces; they are a nod to a healthier lifestyle and a greener planet.

Phthalates, commonly incorporated into many household products for their ability to carry scent, have come under scrutiny for their potential health risks. In response to growing concerns, our team at Mountainside Woodwick Candles took a decisive step to innovate beyond conventional practices. We believe in the integrity of our crafting process, ensuring that each candle enriches your home without compromising your well-being or the environment.

What are Phthalates?

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. They are also commonly used in a wide range of products, from vinyl flooring, to personal care items such as shampoos, soaps, and even in the fragrances that imbue our living spaces with inviting scents. When used in fragrances for candles, phthalates help to dissolve and stabilize the scent, allowing it to last longer and diffuse more consistently throughout the environment. This efficacy has made them a popular choice in the candle industry, despite the growing concerns regarding their safety.

The downside of phthalates in candles lies in their potential health implications. When candles with phthalate-infused fragrances are burned, they can release these chemicals into the air, where they may be inhaled or come into contact with the skin. Research has linked prolonged exposure to certain phthalates to health issues such as hormonal disruptions, reproductive problems, and even an increased risk of certain types of cancers. Consequently, the use of phthalates in scented candles has become a pivotal concern for consumers seeking healthier, more sustainable lifestyle choices. This growing awareness has propelled the shift towards phthalate-free alternatives, which promise the enjoyment of fragranced candles without compromising health or environmental integrity.
