Why is the inside of my candle tin turning pink or slightly discoloured?

You have just opened your super cute candle tin, and OMG, it has turned a funny colour around the edges of your Brand-New Candle, or the inside of the container has gone pink or a strange colour…

Lys Creations NZ does not use candle tins that have been “varnished” on the interior with an unnecessary chemical wash. Yes, varnishing prevents “tin pinking”, but we prefer to keep our candles, vessels, and products as natural as possible. With our decision to not use varnished tins, and as we do not use additives or dyes to disguise or chemically eliminate any natural discolouration in our hand-crafted 100% natural candles, you may notice a slight pink colour around the interior of your candle tin or on the edges of your candle with scent blends that contain vanilla or other spices.  

Not to worry!! The “pinking” or discolouration is simply a natural chemical reaction. It is not a product flaw and will not change or affect the scent or the burn performance of your candle. In the scent blends, we use high-quality, all-natural fragrance oils that are vegan, cruelty-free, and non-GMO plus Phthalate free. Our wicks are free of zinc and lead. Our unvarnished candle tins or any of our candle vessels do not contain additives or other unsafe ingredients like the ones that you find might at supermarkets and other chain stores.

Breathe confidently – breathe safely!

We guarantee fantastic scent throws, increased burn time and cleaner-burning candles. You cannot go wrong with a Lys Creations NZ hand-crafted candle.
