why are the room sprays "milky?"

this is a great question! we have a video here explaining this, but when we were creating our spray formula, we had to make sure the fragrance oil was able to combine with the base.

our first formulas did combine perfectly, but were alcohol based and therefore less safe for pets and people than this formula is.

we switched up the formula, and the reaction that occurs when the oil is mixed with the base simply turns the solution white!

that being said, the spray will not stain dark surfaces or fabric if sprayed normally (i.e. not one inch away from a couch/directly at it).

what are parabens and phthalates?

parabens are artificial preservatives often found in cosmetics, and phthalates are groups of chemicals commonly found in countless products, such as soaps, shampoos, toys, perfumes, etc. typically, they act as a plasticizer... ew.

since the scientific community is still unsure of all the possible side effects of prolonged exposure to both chemicals, we've decided not to use them in our candles. we want to keep Alben Lane candles as safe as possible for people, pets and planet!

what makes alben lane sustainable?

we love this question. sustainability has and always will be at the forefront of our brand—we've got a page on our site dedicated to it!
