IGNESE Materials & Ingredients

-THE INSIDE-

 

 

IGNESE Pure Soy Wax

Our pure soy wax is nontoxic, clean and long-burning resulting in no carbon soot. Our USA grown soybeans are naturally biodegradable and renewable.

 

IGNESE Refills

 

IGNESE provides 2 options for refills:

  • Pre-sized fitted drop-in refills are available for each IGNESE model available at either your authorized dealer or WWW.IGNESE.COM. *
  • The empty container can be sent to our Southern California facility for a factory melt refill.

 

IGNESE Wicks

 

Our wicks are made from all natural lead-free cotton fiber.  Careful testing ensures that each wick provides a clean burn. Nearly 100% liquefaction is achieved so that the refill drops easily in place.

 

IGNESE Essential Oil Aromas

 

Essential oils are pure liquids containing aroma compounds that are removed from the seeds, flowers, leaves, roots, and stems or bark of plants. These oils carry the distinctive essence, or scent, of the plant from which it was made.  The only way to scent candles naturally is with pure essential oils.

 

 

 

-THE OUTSIDE-

 

IGNESE Bamboo & Aluminum – Ecological Symbiosis

 

 

IGNESE brings together eco-friendly and replenish able wood* and metal*. There could not be a better marriage in both style and function. The aluminum lining provides a shield from the flame while emitting a warm shimmering glow when lit.

 

*(A note regarding bamboo and it being called a wood: Bamboo is very special. It is a fast growing natural resource whose rate of biomass generation is unsurpassed in the plant kingdom. It is without doubt one of the most important non-wood forestry products and one of the most important agricultural plants in the world and considered by some to be one of the most important plants in the world. How does bamboo improve on hardwood? Cut down a hardwood tree and it’s gone. It will take several decades for another to grow in its place; it can take a century for a forest to grow back after cutting. But bamboo is a grass, not a tree. Under the right conditions, it can grow a full meter a day — you can literally watch it grow. It is also fast maturing. A new bamboo plant is mature enough to harvest after three to six years, depending on the species. Most important, bamboo is renewable. Unlike hardwood trees, bamboo regrows after harvesting, just as grass regrows after cutting. After it is mature, bamboo can be harvested every single year for the life of the plant.)

*(A note regarding aluminum as eco friendly: Aluminum is among the most environmentally friendly metal on the planet. On a percentage basis is the most recycled of any industrial metal.)

 

IGNESE Stains & Finishes

 

IGNESE uses solvent-free water-based finishes, which is safe to the environment and waterways. Espresso beans and other natural ingredients are mixed to achieve our color palette giving each assembly its own unique characteristic.  Lastly we apply five thin coats of clear gloss with a final sixth coat of matte finish.
