Scentsy uses a food-grade petroleum based wax. Scentsy chose this wax because of its superior scent loading ability, melting point and firmness. Scentsy looked at their waxes, but could not find a good quality vegetable based wax that met their expectations. The type of wax we use is a not an issue, with regard to the chemicals released while burning any traditional wicked candles because Scentsy Warmers simply warm the scent out of the wax – the wax remains in the warmer. There is no danger of chemicals being released into the home. No wick, no match, no flame, no soot, no smoke, and no wax evaporation!
Scentsy’s food grade petroleum wax is the same wax they spray on apples in the grocery stores, to give them their shine. Scentsy is a safe alternative to candles for your home, pets and children.
