Protecting Your Candles from the Sun
As the warm
summer sun ushers in the fun days of outdoor activities and bright warm
days, candle makers everywhere are out and about selling their candles.
Unfortunately the same sun, which brings us the beautiful days of summer,
also causes havoc on our candles. Candle makers everywhere are forced
to hide their beautiful masterpieces in an effort to keep their candles
from fading or melting in the warm heat. There are a few simple tips and
additives that can help protect your candles from the damaging rays from
the sun, resulting in an increased shelf life as well as raise your candle’s
marketability as a premium product.
This last tip is 100% free and 100% effective. As the old adage states, an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Quite simply, keep candles out of light whenever possible. Many of our Libby Branded Jars are shipped to you in a sturdy reusable box that makes a great protector for your finished candles. If you are selling your candles in an outdoor venue, purchase a shade tent to keep you and your candles out of the sun. On really sunny days, consider keeping fewer products out on the open table, and when a customer makes a purchase, you can give them a candle that was stored below in a box. For those of you who ship your candles to retail stores, a quick chat with the store owner to explain the importance of displaying the candles away from the windows will save you a lot of money in returns. Some dedicated shop keepers have even gone as far as having their windows lightly tinted to help ward off the damaging sun, not to mention the energy bill decrease by having less stress on the air conditioner.
