Have you ever bought a scented wax product that smelled great in the packet, but when burning it was a huge disappointment? Let us tell you why we are different.
When we first set out to make a healthier, stronger and amazing value scented wax product, we had no idea of the learning curve we were about to experience, the challenges we might face and the science we had to overcome, learn and adapt to.
The first thing we had to learn was the variety of different waxes that were available. We spoke to lots of wax makers and suppliers all over the country and one thing stood out to us. They were all doing exactly the same thing, using the same products from the same suppliers. We wanted to be different, offer something more special and unique, but most importanty we wanted a product which was even healthier, for us, you and the environment. That is why after lots of testing we have chosen the highest quality Soy Wax availble in the UK.
Our wax formula is a 100% natural blend of predominantly Soy/Vegtable wax with natural performance additives to improve burn and scent throw. This wax does not contain any genetically modified ingredients. It is biodegradable and vegan friendly. No animal products are used, and no animal testing has been carried out in its manufacture.
We found by using this wax, with a mixture of upto 10% of the finest fragrance oils, and limiting the dyes and colouring we use we were able to make a product which we are certain you will love
Our final dilemma was that all waxes have a maximum capacity to absorb or hold fragrance (scent load capacity). If you attempt to add more fragrance than a wax can hold, it will either separate from the wax or the candle will not burn properly. Most candle manufacturers use only the standard scent load (2-5%) capacity, creating average or poor scented candles.
Mixing things up!
We transformed our unit into a mini wax/science laboratory and began our journey. What follows is the result of a family team, with a passion for healthy living, seeking a solution to the scented wax products dilemma.
Our manufacturing process enables us to get our wax formula to absorb a greater amount of fragrance. Most wax manufacturers will add fragrance when the wax is too hot. This will cause the fragrance to start evaporating during the manufacturing process.
We have perfected the exact temperature for each fragrance to be added based on its evaporation temperatures and plenty of testing. Our next objective is to cool the wax as rapidly as possible while keeping the fragrance evenly mixed throughout the wax. By cooling our wax more rapidly we allow very little fragrance evaporation during the manufacturing process.
When the wax has cooled to the point of almost solidifying, we will pour the candles/melts. Specifically, hand pouring each and every candle because it is impossible to achieve the same consistency and thickness at such low temperatures while using machinery. It is important that you understand, most wax products especially candles are made using automated machinery, requiring the temperature to be much hotter. Why is this a problem? Pouring at such high temperatures causes a great deal of fragrance to evaporate out of the candles. Also, a large percentage of fragrance rises to the top of the candles leaving little scent at the bottom and on some occasions the candle may sweat oil on the top.
The overall result is that Manor Park Wax products are so strong and so realistic you will think you have the real thing! Whether it's Fresh Baked Bread , a hot filtered coffee or a ripe juicy Apple, you'll swear that somebody has just been baking!
