Why ReWax & UnWine Uses Organic Coconut Wax



If you know ReWax and UnWine, you know that we value offering natural, sustainable products. Coconut wax is made out of its raw product- the center of the coconut. The process involves gathering the meat of the coconut and cold pressing its oil. Using the hydrogenation process, coconut oil is transformed into wax. Derived from coconut oil, they’re some of the most environmentally friendly candles you’ll find, and this is why.

Why we use organic coconut wax

Almost any kind of oil can be turned into a wax, which makes for a lot of options for candle making.

  • Coconut wax candles carry a great scent.

  • You’ll enjoy your candles longer due to a slower burn.

  • They are the most eco-friendly candles on the market.

  • It’s naturally sourced, allowing for an entirely natural organic candle.

Why we don’t use other waxes

We want to provide you with the most natural, environmentally friendly, health-conscious products on the market. We can’t achieve that by making our candles with other waxes.

Paraffin wax

Paraffin wax is one of the most popular waxes for candle making for a few reasons. First, it holds color really well. Second, it also holds scent extremely well. And third, it’s easy to come by because it is a by-product of the oil industry- petroleum.

We do not use paraffin wax, however, because it is made from the leftovers of the unrefined petroleum oil, and some customers don’t want to breathe in these chemicals.

Soy wax

Yes, soy wax is more environmentally friendly than paraffin wax, but it doesn’t carry as much of a scent, doesn’t look as great, and burns quicker than coconut wax, making the choice even clearer.
