The History - Established in 1643 by Claude Turdon, Cire Trudon is the most famous wax producing factory in France. As the provider of Louis XIV's French royal court, as well as the most glorious cathedrals and churches throughout France, the history and know-how is unsurpassed.
The Wax - Cire Trudon candles are 100% paraffin-free and devoid of any secondary minerals derived from petrolchemicals. Using a secret recipe of vegetal oils with wicks of pure cotton, Cire Trudon candles do not contain any of the harmful substances listed by OSPAR (referred to by Greenpeace) and are 100% biodegradable.
The Glass - Cire Trudon travelled to Vinci in Italy to have master craftsmen create its hand-blown candle glass. Its deep colour and its smart irregular profile varies for each glass, no two glasses are identical.
