Hi! my name is Victoria, and I would like to share with you how Grey Fox Candles started.
After moving up here in 1978, I felt like I was in a love/hate relationship with ALASKA. it took a few years to adjust but slowly the LOVE for Alaska won my heart. After my four children were born and raised, I joined the medical field as a patient care tech. It was during this time I decided I wanted to pursue a passion for creating pure, eco-friendly, premium hand-poured candles. I thought it was just going to be a side hobby and was overjoyed by the response for local, hand poured, environmentally clean, phthalate free, candles. Little did I know, seven years later, it would be my full-time job! I am thankful for locals supporting small business and allowing me to continue to create what I am passionate about, ALASKA - INSPIRED creations.
*I may have an air bubble under my label (which drives me crazy, by the way), but that is because I put them on one by one, as well as design and print them. Everything is done by hand, one candle at a time. It may take just a bit longer to do, but it's all handmade, and I love it.
*Talk about natural vast resources! ALASKA rocks!!!
A few years of jotting down notes, scrapping this idea, then another. and testing. then more testing. did I mention testing? I began "panning" in earnest for natural alternatives for skin care, particularly with our extreme, harsh ALASKA dry weather conditions.
*Today I am happy to share all of our MADE in ALASKA products:
*Coconut Wax + Soy Wax Candles with ALASKA - THEMED WATERCOLOR LABELS
*For Our Fragrances - We use premium fragrance oils with unique notes inspired by our beautiful state of ALASKA. They are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never tested on animals.
*For Our Wax - Our high-quality, creamy, white coconut wax is gluten free, toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free and comes from renewable sources. For some of our wood wick formulations, we add eco-friendly soy wax for an optimal burning experience.
*For Our Wicks - We chose to use two kinds of wicks. For the majority of our candles, we use all-natural cotton wicks. We double the wicks in our signature line for a unique experience. We also use eco-friendly wooden wicks in some of our candles. They are sourced from FSC certified mills and manufactured in the USA, and are a sustainable, natural, wicking option.
*Premium Beeswax Lotion
*All-Natural Linen Sprays
*Beeswax Lip Balms
*Alaska Honey Sugar Scrubs w/ exclusive sea green ALASKA GLACIER SILT!
*Check back often as you never know what I will be creating next!
