Halarosis recently announced it will be adding new scents to its growing line of fragrance products while also planning a major product expansion in the coming months, including air and fabric fresheners, and reed diffusers. All new products will align with the overarching Halarosis mission to educate consumers on the dangers of additives like phthalates and other harmful substances found in many common home fragrance products. Halarosis (Greek for relaxation) is an all-natural soy wax, vegan, and cruelty-free company dedicated to producing items that are better for both people and the environment, totally eliminating toxic ingredients. Halarosis products are available online directly from the company, and through Amazon and Walmart.com.
“People increasingly want to live much healthier lifestyles and you see that reflected everywhere now, especially in food and exercise trends,” said Joanna Vassiliades, Halarosis Founder. “But it’s surprising that people still use other products that are harmful to their health. So many candles on the market today, from big-name brands to small businesses, are made of paraffin wax, which is a petroleum waste product.”
“These waxes and fragrances used in candle-making often contain toxins, like phthalates and parabens. It’s shocking, but people are still burning candles with carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins, and organ toxins in their homes – usually because they have no idea. And although some companies are trying to provide better options like soy wax, those candles often do not entice new customers because they don’t have the same richness of scent people want. We knew we could do better, so the wax used in our candle-making process is not only clean and pure soy, but also sustainable and biodegradable. And the exciting part: it has a strong, robust scent that lasts.”

“Clean fragrances are just as important as safe, sustainable wax,” explained Vassiliades. “Some companies will claim to infuse their candles with essential oils, without informing customers that they are also using fragrance oils which may contain toxic ingredients. We work to provide a wide range of fragrances that please all of our clientele, meaning that sometimes we have to use more than just essential oils. But the scents we use are always safe, as we work very closely with our suppliers to ensure that our fragrance oils are phthalate-free and toxin-free.”
