Quality

Most Duni candles have the RAL Quality Mark, which is awarded by the European Quality Association for Candles. The RAL mark guarantees the following benefits:

  • The candle burns as long as stated on the package
  • Minimized smoking and soot and therefore minimized contamination of the room air
  • Only high-quality wicks, free of impurities, are used in production.
  • The candles contain neither contaminated raw materials nor hazardous candles colours or lacquer
  • Candles retain their shape, measurements and wick properties
  • Safe and reliable when used according to instructions

Materials

We use the following materials, alone or mixed, when making our candles.

Paraffin
Paraffin is a common candle-making material, derived from fossil fuel. Used alone or in combination with other materials, it gives a long burning time.

Stearin
Stearin has a shorter burning time than paraffin, but it burns clean, emitting less carbon dioxide. Stearin is sourced from animal or vegetable fat, and is less readily available than paraffin, giving it a higher price.

Vegetable oils
We use palm, rapeseed and sunflower oils in our candles. To ensure quality raw materials, Duni demands a certificate stating the origin of the oil from our suppliers.

Ecolabel Svanen


Many of our candles now meet the strict requirements of the Scandinavian Ecolabel Svanen. Ecolabeled candles must consist of more than 90% renewable raw materials, have clean burning properties and limited soot emission.

 

How to recycle tealight cups:Tea lights
It’s important when recycling aluminium tealight cups that the wick holder is loosened. If the wick holder (the steel circle that the wick is attached to) is not loosened, the cup will be sorted with steel and not recycled. To loosen the wick holder, press the bottom of the cup until the holder loosens. There’s no need to separate the parts completely – that will happen in the recycling process.
