All G+L candles are vegan, cruelty-free, and phthalate-free. All of our candles are made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax. All of our candle wicks are constructed from all-natural ring-spun cotton. They do not contain zinc, lead, or any other metals. All of our products are developed, produced, tested, packed, and shipped by our team out of our Virginia location nestled alongside the Potomac River.
