Maybe you’re here because you’ve got a loved one that’s vegan and want to get them something special, perhaps you feel like you’ve drawn the short straw by picking the office vegan out of the hat for Secret Santa or maybe you’re just a vegan wondering what to stick on your wishlist this year. Whatever your reason the below guide should help you figure out what a vegan may want for Christmas.
Are candles vegan? Not always – they can contain beeswax or stearic acid (usually from animal fat). Don’t worry though, there are plenty of vegan-friendly candles out there so you won’t have to miss out on burning any of your favourite scents.
These gorgeous tin candles are really well scented and make fantastic gifts so I was super happy to hear that Lily Flame are vegan-friendly.
When contacted I received the following response: ‘Our candles are made using 65% Paraffin wax, 29% vegetable triglycerides (fats) to make the wax softer and 6% perfume. Our candles do not contain any animal products and we do not test them on animals.’
The Viva! Vegan Festival London had it all: great vegan food, clothes, beauty and homeware. I’d always recommend going to these vegan events as you get tonnes of vegan retailers under one roof where you can sample their products and nab a bargain.
