Hi I am Kerry and Plant Based Hipster is my company.
I sell hand poured wax melts in the most delicious fragrances, to fill your home with the most wonderful scents and hopefully put a smile on your face.
The reason I started making wax melts are because ones that I had tried, no matter what brand, were causing me health issues. I suffer with asthma and also oral allergy syndrome and I was finding that wax melts and scented candles often had an adverse effect on my breathing and gave me an allergic reaction and I ended up having to take anti histamines. So I made it my mission to develop wax melts and scented candles that wouldn’t negatively effect my health. There was a lot of trial and error experimenting with different fragrance companies. I had to do a lot of research into fragrances and waxes to be able to grasp what ones would be better for my health. Eventually I found fragrances that were free from the usual nasty chemicals that can causes harm to health and I decided to use coconut and rapeseed wax with no additives such as paraffin as this wax is totally natural, causes no harm to health and it’s completely biodegradable . All our wax melts are made from coconut and rapeseed oil wax which is a sustainable source unlike soy which is contributing to worldwide deforestation.
A little bit about why I chose coconut and rapeseed wax:
In my opinion, coconut and rapeseed waxes are currently the most sustainable source of wax (and, in comparison to other waxes, have supply chains with the most ethically transparent practices) with each singular wax requiring the properties of the other so as to function effectively. The supplier of my coconut and rapeseed blend wax certifies that this wax is free from Palm, Soy, Beeswax, Paraffin, Polymers, GMO materials and any other additives
Coconut & rapeseed wax is the new wax on the block. It’s definitely more expensive to use, but because of it’s great scent throw and even burn we think it’s worth the price tag.
Coconut & rapeseed Wax is a soft creamy white color and is the eco-friendly choice. Harvesting the oil is an organic process with coconuts themselves being a sustainable high yield crop
Benefits of Coconut & rapeseed Wax
My wax melts and candles are:
Cruelty free ✅
Soy free ✅
Sustainable wax source ✅
Free from CMRs and/or phthalates ✅
Free from parabens and silicon ✅
Free from PEG ✅
Recyclable packaging ✅
CLP compliant ✅
My wax melts are completely biodegradable and even the glitter! All of my packaging is recyclable and also biodegradable. The wax melts themselves come in glassine bags. I have chose glassine over recyclable plastic as we all know a lot of what we put in our recycling bin ends up getting shipped abroad and put in landfill. Glassine will biodegrade in 2-3 weeks where as plastic takes 450 years. Any orders we post are packaged plastic free and even the tape I use can go in your recycling bin.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my little business
Kerry’s amazing wax melts will be featuring in the Between Green Box for May and there’s only a few days left to grab yours!
