Meet Caylen

Hi! I’m Caylen, the founder of Canvas Candle Company–a small business located in British Columbia, Canada, specializing in clean burning soy candles. When I started Canvas back in 2016, I had no idea that it would become what it is today. At first, the creativity that Canvas gave me became an outlet for the very “inside the box” corporate job I was working at the time. It gave me back a passion I hadn’t felt in a long time! As I researched more and started developing our candles, I realized a couple of things:
  1. There are a lot of harmful chemicals in the fragrance industry
  2. No one was talking about the harmful side of fragrance.
So it became my mission to create beautiful, high quality scented candles that are safe for all of our customers to enjoy. This is why we always use 100% North American produced soy wax, phthalate-free fragrance, essential oils and natural cotton wicks in our Canadian made candles.

It has become my honour to educate our customers and produce safer options for them to enjoy within their home, and gift to their loved ones. Canvas Candle Company is what it is today because of our customers, their support and the amazing team that I get the joy of working with each day!

Our Process

At Canvas Candle Company, it is our mission to produce beautiful, high quality candles that are safe for all of our customers to enjoy. Loving hands curate the candles you enjoy every step of the way. From day one we have used a traditional method for candle making and have chosen to hand-pour each candle in small, four pound batches, to ensure the quality and consistency is the same from batch to batch. We have chosen to use the highest quality of ingredients without compromise, and design our products with your home and space in mind.

Clean, Non GMO Soy Wax

We use soy wax because it burns cleaner, safer and will last 30% longer than other comparable waxes. We only use 100% soy wax that has been grown and produced within North America. This allows us to know that our wax meets all the North American health and safety regulations and standards. Our wax is also vegan and produced with non-GMO soy beans.

High Quality and Safe Fragrance

Each of our candles is fragranced with a proprietary blend of fragrance oils and essential oils. All of our fragrance oils are 100% phthalate and paraben-free and all of our essential oils are 100% natural and skin safe.

Natural Cotton Wicks

Our wicks are all natural cotton without the use of lead, zinc or synthetic fibers. This ensures a cleaner and safer burn while you enjoy your candles.

Reusable Vessels

We source our vessels with sustainability in mind. Each vessel is chosen to be a high quality container that can be re-used and re-purposed within your life. In most cities, our vessels can be cleaned and recycled within your household recycling bins. 
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your memories, your space and your life.
