Why rapeseed wax is a game-changer?

"You might ask if rapeseed wax is such a game-changer in the candle industry, why isn't it admire as much as soy wax for example? The answer is simple - it's more difficult to process and requires maintaining the technological regime. We have been working on the processing method for almost six months. That's how FLAMQA candles have been created, i.e. vegan rapeseed candles free from GMO, toxic substances and completely cruelty-free. We are proud of them! " - FLAMQA team

"Since we have an abundance of rapeseed in Europe there in no need to transport raw materials like coconut, soy, palm wax not mention paraffin wax from the other side of the world. In such a way we reduce unnecessary carbon footprint and support local agriculture"- FLAMQA team.
