Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice: 4Candles

Many of our customers will have concerns due to the Coronavirus outbreak and this blog post is designed to outline the steps which we are taking to ensure the wellbeing of our customers and employees.

This page will be updated regularly – as required. If you would like to keep updated, please join our Newsletter or if you have any specific queries contact our friendly Helpdesk team for further guidance.

UPDATE: 24TH MARCH 2020
We are still open and dispatching orders in our usual timely way.
Due to the announcement by the UK government on the 23rd March the directors have taken the decision to rotate and segregate its workforce. We have opened up our storage warehouses to also serve as functioning spaces for order delivery. This has further separated our amazing team into large personal spaces. All new spaces have been fitted out with cleaning stations for regular sanitizing.

All our office staff have either been furloughed or are working from home. The Helpdesk telephone line is still…

New Glass Fragrance Oil Bottles

As an environmentally conscious company, in December 2018 we embarked on a new project in order to tackle our single-waste plastic consumption. This project, among other things, tackled our previous plastic fragrance oil bottles being replaced with new eco-friendly aluminium bottles.

However, we have received some constructive feedback from our customers regarding the new aluminium bottles about it being hard to open the lids.

We have therefore stopped using the 75ml and 170ml aluminium bottles. These two sizes have now been replaced by 60ml and 150ml glass alternatives. These can be seen in the image above.

The new glass bottles were designed with the feedback from our customers and the advantageous elements of the glass bottles, such as having child-safe caps and being easily recycled.

By changing to a glass alternative, we hope to have resolved the issue that has been outlined whilst still minimising the impact we have on the environment.

We do still use the 600ml aluminium b…

Black Plum & Rhubarb Freshly picked plums entwines with wild tangy rhubarb to create a fragrance which is understated, elegant and quintessentially British.

New: Eco-Friendly Packaging

At 4Candles, we take our commitment to the environment and corporate social responsibility seriously. We are continuously looking for ways to maintain the high-quality standards that our customers expect whilst minimising the impact we make on the environment.

Over the last two months, we have been extensively trialling an eco-friendlier packaging solution – as many of our customers will know upon receiving their orders.

Previously, we used branded plastic air bags to secure items within your order however we have now moved to a paper solution. Whilst the previous plastic solution was recyclable, the paper alternative has many eco-friendly advantages. The paper packaging is made from recycled material, supports renewable forestry, and is more widely recyclable. In addition to this, the paper packaging can be re-used when fulfilling your own orders and is fully compostable!

We have received great customer feedback since implementing this change and have sent several thousand parcels…
