A UMAII candles are 100% ecological and consist of European olive wax. We have consciously chosen not to use paraffin. Paraffin is a type of fat that is made from petroleum. Paraffin-based candles indeed contain substances that are unhealthy.
UMAII is one of the only candle producers that can purchase olive wax. After the production of olive oil, the remnants are used in the cosmetics industry or animal feed. Only a very limited amount is converted into candle wax. Our olive wax does not melt in the sun, and provides candles with a super long burning time.
We chose not to add fragrances to our candles. To be sufficiently fragrant, most fragrances are chemical. Or, if they are natural perfumes, their use becomes unaffordable for the size of our candles.
We also decided to design and use pots made of recycled metal. Again something different. Our pots are perfectly reusable and refillable. While the olive wax doesn’t mind the sun, our metal bowls don’t like the rain.

Why it is in The Green Circle

The choice to combine two recycled products as different as metal and olive wax is already brilliant from the start. Olive wax, furthermore, is a very unusual product, which is valorized by Umaii, giving it a new dignity that is certainly of interest in the candle industry. Moreover, it should not be underestimated that these are very beautiful products, as well as very sustainable, suitable for any setting.
