Does Sand + Fog practice animal testing?

We do not test on animals, nor do we hire any 3rd parties to do animal testing for us.  We do not intentionally use animal-based products, but we cannot speak to the testing process of our raw ingredients.  

What type of wax do you use in your scented candles?

We primarily use a food-grade paraffin wax base in all of our scented candles. Depending on the specific scent we are developing, we will occasionally mix in other commonly known FDA-approved ingredients to optimize burn and fragrance diffusion. Our scented candle wax formulas have been developed and refined over decades by the industry's leading chemists and master perfumers in order to hold and disperse a high content of fine fragrance oil and ensure that each and every candle burns cleanly and evenly when used and maintained properly.

Do Sand + Fog Candles contain Phthalates?

Phthalates are a broad group of chemicals.  We do not use any of the potentially hazardous phthalates regulated by the CPSC.

Are scented candles safe?

The safety of scented candles is backed by decades of research which confirms safe use.  Additionally, Sand + Fog candles requires extensive testing on our candles.

Are Sand + Fog Candles safe for those who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant? 

All of our products are safe when used as directed.  Specific medical questions or concerns you may have should be addressed to your medical provider. 

Do Sand + Fog Candles trigger allergies or asthma?

Although millions of people regularly use scented candles without any negative effects, it is always possible that a particular fragrance may trigger a negative reaction in sensitive individuals.  Those with known sensitivities to specific fragrances may want to avoid candles of those scents. In addition, consumers should remember to burn all candles in a well-ventilated area.
