Would you describe your products? Ingredients, types of fabrics, etc.
All Luminaire Candle Co. candles are American-grown soy wax that is gluten, lead and harmful phthalate free with 100% cotton wicks that are free from zinc
Why Should Wicks Be Free From Zinc in Soy Candles?
As mentioned before, zinc is a material that can be harmful if inhaled. This is why it is important to make sure that wicks are free from zinc. There are a few reasons for this. First, zinc can be an irritant to the lungs. This can cause problems with breathing and may even lead to lung cancer. Second, zinc is a metal that can conduct electricity. This means that if there is a fire, the zinc can cause an electrical shock. Finally, zinc is a poisonous metal. This means that it can be harmful if swallowed.
