Let's get sustainable!




Sustainability is the current buzz word for manufacturing. Increasingly consumers want to know the origins of their products, and there is a growing concern that goods are produced ethically without causing harm to the environment, or communities. So, you know that Shearer Candles are made in the UK, right here in bonnie Scotland, but did you know that our Natural Spa Collection is produced using 100% RSPO Certified Palm Oil? In some regions, oil palm cultivation has caused, and continues to cause, deforestation. The effects of this can be massive, including negative environmental impacts on biodiversity and the displacement of protected species and local communities. The RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce Certified Sustainable Palm Oil. Properly applied, these criteria help to minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities. We use only certified RSPO Palm Wax in our Natural Spa Candles, and not only is it sustainably sourced it also gives our candles a long burn time and a wonderfully evocative scent. RSPO certified products carry a unique trademark, so you can be assured that the product you are buying has been made with materials sourced from a certified supply chain. So you can relax next time you light one of our Natural Spa Candles, available in 6 delicious scents, made from ethically sourced Palm Wax. Why not try injecting your kitchen with the fresh scent of Herb, a fragrant mix of mint, bergamot and aromatic lavender. Or relax with the warm scent of Spice, an exotic fragrance with a blend of patchouli and cedar. Whatever scent you choose, you will enjoy not only an amazing scent, but also peace of mind.
