Wax composition: 100% rapeseed, no additives
It's a pure rapeseed wax, 100% natural, without OGM products, 100% Vegan, with no pesticides, and in conformity according to REACH norms.
This wax has an excellent olfactory rendering hot and cold. Exclusively from European cultures. Made in Germany
Rapeseed Waxes are an ideal eco-wax available from locally grown non-GM rapeseed crops in the UK, France, and Germany and manufactured within Europe. Simpler, shorter, and closer logistics mean a smaller carbon footprint. This vegetal oil has the lowest footprint and the higher rentability crop from European cultures. Rapeseed is effectively an eco-friendly culture.
The European Union was the leading producer of rapeseed worldwide with a production volume of 19.5 million metric tons in that year in 2022/2023 (https://www.statista.com/statistics/263930/worldwide-production-of-rapeseed-by-country/)
This Rapeseed is used to produce oil, which can be used both in the food industry and candle industry and in the manufacture of green biodiesel.
Biodiesel Production: Rapeseed oil is used in biodiesel production. Biodiesel is considered a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional diesel fuel, as it produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Crop Rotation and Soil Benefits: Rapeseed is often used in crop rotation, which can enhance soil health and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers. The plant has deep roots that help break up compacted soil, and its residues contribute to the growth of organic matter and the natural management of weeds, creating a natural response to this problem.
Crop requiring little water: On the other hand, it also allows for livestock use, through straw, which is used to feed cattle. It is a very interesting crop in soils that are not very fertile and with little water.
Let's resume it's Eco credentials
Interested in knowing about rapeseed crops in Europe, here is an extensive article.

Technical data :
This is a very easy and user-friendly wax allowing you to achieve great results in beautiful truly ethical candles. It is therefore an aesthetic solution, as well as being ethical.
Don't work with rapeseed wax as you do with soy wax. Rapeseed wax is a bit sensitive and likes to be treated with a lot of attention.
Once poured, it is recommended to let your container candles cure for at least a week at room temperature before using them.
Always adjust your pouring temperature to room temperature following the principle below . If the room temperature is too low pour hotter
All pure waxes, rapeseed or other, are prone to frosting, more or less, sooner or later. But it improves, if you add, some 3-10 % of rapeseed stearin .
Regarding wicks for containers :
The wick you use will be an average of two sizes above what you would normally use in a soy wax container candle of the same size/diameter. The ideal wick for rapeseed wax is one in the Stabilo Series but remember that fragrance plays a big role. This info is just a starting point.
Check your size in STABILO WICKS and you can also use TCR, CL, VRL, and wooden wicks.
Packaging: in pellets in bags of 1,5,10 and 20kg.
