We talk a lot about our collection being phthalate free yet I’m sure you can hardly pronounce this word or spell it so what does it really mean? Let’s start with the definition
“Phthalates, a family of industrial chemicals used to soften polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic and as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products, can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.”
Sooooo now that you’ve read the definition and understand what it means, is this something you really want burning in your homes?
I sure hope not. There are lots of articles that say phthalates are absolutely harmless however there are equally as many that state these chemicals are toxic.
Here at Miss Lynn’s Candles of Affirmation we go with the latter and pride ourselves on creating non toxic fragrances to keep your home safe and your air as clean as possible.
We understand that these chemicals in small doses may not be harmful to you but who is measuring your homes capacity of intake? Most of us don't know all of the products in our homes that contain it. This is why we stay focused on not contributing to your overall count!
Enjoy us safely this summer!!
