Hello & Welcome! I'm Teresa Schumacher and this is my wonderful
husband Jeffrey and our adorable children, Christian, Joshua & baby
Hannah. We are so thankful and blessed with our family and our soy
The funny thing is, we were not interested in building a soy candle business. That was never initially our interest. Our candle journey was ignited by our common passion for health and wellness.
Like many of you, my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in a scent-filled house whenever we lit candles. What we didn’t enjoy was the black soot that would cover our candle jars and everything else in the vicinity. Concerned about what this black film was and what the health implications were for breathing it in, we began to do our research. What we learned was shocking.
We discovered that most candles are made from paraffin wax, a petroleum by-product generated when oil is refined into gasoline. A report from the Environmental Protection Agency stated that paraffin wax is harmful when burned—as dangerous as second-hand smoke—and contains 11 toxins, two that are considered above the excess cancer risk with multiple exposures.
We also learned that most commercially-made fragrances were almost as harmful as the paraffin wax because the fragrances were made with petroleum oil. Additionally, the metals used in wicks and other candle synthetic additives were unhealthy.
§ Were made of all-natural soy wax. Soy wax has no harmful carcinogens, burns with no petro-carbon soot and lasts longer than paraffin wax.
§ Burned evenly. No more hole in the middle of the candle with all the wax still on the sides!
§ Smelled amazing top to bottom!
§ Were long-lasting.
So, to make our family and yours healthier, we created Pure Integrity Soy Candles. One year later after giving candles out to friends and family the flame was ignited for a successful candle business.
What makes our
soy candles so superior? We use an
innovative fragrance technology that enables our
soy wax to absorb an exceptional amount of scent. Our candles
have 50% more than the current industry standard for scent
Our fragrances were developed specifically for us to be used in our unique soy wax formulation, as opposed to typical fragrances which are manufactured in petroleum oil.
In addition to purchasing soy candles online, you can visit our two
Buffalo, NY, retail locations at
Boulevard Mall and
Eastern Hills Mall. Our candles are also sold at high-end salons
and spas throughout Western New York and across the country.
