COLD-PRESSED & HANDMADE
WHAT IT IS: When active ingredients are processed at low temperatures, the enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids are preserved. Handmade scents are also captivating, from candle wax to the intricacies of the wick, it is the hours spent and concentration of ingredients and artisanship that sets them apart.
PRO TIP: “We preserve products using ingredients that are as effective and not toxic,” explains Chanel Jenae, co-owner of Arcona. Jasmine Gan, founder of Sanctuary, uses lead-free cotton-core wicks in her soy candles “to ensure cleaner burning qualities.”
