What Are Clean-Burning Candles? – Goose Creek Blog
What Does Clean-Burning Candle Mean?
For a candle to be clean burning, it has to burn without giving off excess smoke or leaving dark soot marks on your walls. Many low-quality candles don’t burn clean and can create dangerous air pollution and unsightly marks in your home. In order to keep your home free of nasty chemicals, smoke and soot, be sure to select high-quality scented candles such as Goose Creek clean-burning candles.

Why Paraffin Wax Candles Can Be Clean Burning
There is quite a bit of information that has been spread across the internet that portrays paraffin wax as an inherently dangerous substance to use for making scented candles. This is simply not true. We believe that you should have the correct information before you make a purchase decision. This information has been spread because paraffin waxes are petroleum-based and created from byproducts of crude oil.
While the burning of paraffin wax can release some harmful toxins, the amounts released by the burning of a scented candle are negligible. This amount of fumes is also comparable to the amount released by other types of candle wax that has been deemed “safe” by those claiming paraffin wax to be “dangerous”. It is also important to note that all of the paraffin wax used to make Goose Creek candles has been determined to be a non-toxic, clean-burning fuel source by regulatory agencies in charge of monitoring candle manufacturing.
Learn More from the National Candle Association
According to the National Candle Association, no types of candle waxes are better than others. The Association’s website assures consumers that “all types of quality candle waxes have been shown to burn cleanly, safely and in the same manner.” It also goes on to say that the choice of wax used by candle makers is a matter of preference and suitability for certain candle types.
The National Candle Association also cites validated scientific studies that have proven all major candle waxes give off similar combustion byproducts and show similar burn behavior. It also says that no peer-reviewed scientific study has determined that petroleum-based candle wax is harmful to human health. This point is further proven by information stating that candles made with natural ingredients are not necessarily safer than those made with synthetic materials.
