During the last few decades, the candle industry has seen increasing use of vegetable oils. The Olenex portfolio comprises various oil and fat solutions that can tailor exact requirements for a wide variety of making candles.


Traditionally, Paraffin has been the preferred resource for candle production. However, the global supply of Paraffin is short and pricing has become quite volatile. As a result, product planning has become a challenge for the entire industry. Vegetable oils are a great alternative solution to a stable supply for candle makers.
