Isola Luce candles are made of 100% palm oil to produce a candle that burns without smoke or soot. The candles do not contain any petroleum oil based wax products. Palm oil is harvested from palm kernels and NO TREES are harmed in the process. The palm oil used to make these candles are the same palm oil that many regional people have used to cook with for thousands of years and it is proven to be a completely SAFE product. Isola Luce believes that people can enhance the beauty of their surroundings using candles that do not compromise the environment.
Harmful dyes are not used because food coloring colors the candles just as beautifully. Some candle manufacturers choose to cut costs by using cheap lead core wicks, but we use 100% cotton wicks from Germany to avoid the slightest possibility of lead poisoning.

In today’s world almost everyone is trying to do their part to clean up the environment and palm oil candles are the perfect solution for candle enthusiasts who are concerned about the environment. All our candles are smokeless and sootless thus they will not mark up your walls or furniture. Their ability to burn cleanly is very helpful in cutting back any type of pollution that burning candles may cause to the environment. Actually, we have started selling palm oil candles to many Churches in Europe because our candle does not damage the Artifacts inside the Churches.
Palm oil candles do not melt till temperatures reach 131’ Fahrenheit unlike paraffin candles which start to get soft at 86’ Fahrenheit. This higher melting point enables palm oil candles to retain their shape throughout their entire burning time without fear of folding over like paraffin wax candles. They are also more ideal candles in hotter climates and warmer temperatures. Should you need to ship our candles in the summertime, you don’t have to worry about damage due to melting (a problem common amongst paraffin and other types of waxes) because our candles can easily withstand high temperatures, even in the desert.
