The subluceo story...
(sub-lu-chi-oh) Latin, meaning to glow or faintly glimmer
Hii… I’m Sophie, I created Subluceo in 2018 with the desire for a new creative hobby. This was teamed with a love of candles and the ambience and cosiness they bring. I wanted to create a beautiful product that smelt great, was eco friendly and did not use excess plastic.
Subluceo candles are hand poured in London with Vegan and eco friendly values running at the heart of the business. Subluceo are free from phthalates, parabens and animal derrivatives. We use 100% natural soy wax, apothecary jars, crackling wooden wicks, high quality essential and fragrance oils.
Soy wax is natural and burns at a lower temperature than paraffin wax meaning your candle will last 30 - 50% longer. Soy wax is clean burning which means it does not release soot and toxins in to the environment, no black marks on your candle jars! Our candles feature double wooden wicks which burn slower and wider than cotton wicks. The wick crackles and flickers whilst it burns which gives off the cosy feeling and ambience of sitting by an open fire place. These wicks also help with the scent throw of the candle and are better for the environment.
The candle labels are hand written by myself making each candle unique and personal. Each candle comes gift wrapped in a beautiful box hand stamped with the company logo. The Kraft paper gift boxes are made from recycled materials and are also recyclable. All of our packaging (including jars) can be recycled or reused to hold other household items. Subluceo does not buy any new plastic for postal orders. Any plastic packaging that is used is collected from businesses that no longer need it, therefore giving the item a secondary use and preventing it from going in to landfill.
