McFadden Candle Co. candles are all made with a Coco Apricot Crème wax. This is a vegan blend of natural apricot and coconut, and a miniscule amount of highly refined food-grade paraffin wax. It has a creamy white appearance, exceptional adhesion and provides an excellent fragrance throw (both warm and cold). Coconut and apricot waxes are gluten free, toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free, and come from renewable sources. The entire blend utilizes only FDA approved waxes.
