What Makes a Good Candle?
S-E-A’s Chemical and Candle Laboratory Director, Bob Moss, presented on behalf of the National Candle Association to numerous retail organizations about the basics of candle composition and associated industry standards. The webinar (see link below) discusses various candle components and reveals how these components ultimately contribute to the fuel. The concept of a “quality” candle is then evaluated from the point of view of the consumer, retailer and manufacturer. Bob also reviews the current ASTM standards for candles, warning labels, containers and accessories. He closes with a discussion on candle failures he has seen in the lab and the importance of retailer/manufacturer communication with regard to testing protocols.
