Welcome to Tribal Unicorn Candle Bar, I’m Angelica, the 'Head Candle Freak' and Founder.
I started making candles as a hobby from my kitchen table in 2017 and that hobby quickly grew into a beautiful obsession.
Tribal Unicorn is an ethically conscious, luxury lifestyle brand specialising in modern, candles and home items with a bold and beautiful aesthetic.
Our products are made to complement the customer’s personality, empower individuality, celebrate culture, and encourage joy in our mental health and wellbeing routines.
About The Candles
My candles, handmade in London, will remind you of the pineapple and jerk vibes from Notting Hill Carnival to that candle-lit hip hop yoga class in Shoreditch.
At Christmas, I will introduce you to the scents of my Grandma’s Christmas rum cake to glorious scent of her freshly baked gingerbread cookies. On Valentine’s day our Tall, Dark, and Handsome fragrance will make you swoon, Prestige will set those romantic vibes, and Sugar Daddy… will speak for its self.
We use the highest quality perfumes, soy, coconut, and rapeseed wax available which is organically and ethically sourced. Why?:
Cleaner burning - no toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. no petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
Longer lasting - Soy, Coconut and Rapeseed wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.
Biodegradable and water-soluble - Since our candles are made out of soybeans, rapeseed oil (from a plant belonging to the cabbage family) and coconut oil (harvested from organic coconuts). They are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills easier to clean.
We also use biodegradable glitter which contains low levels of heavy metals. Antimony levels in Bio-glitter® are below the limits of detection, effectively zero. Whereas, cosmetic polyester glitter can have antimony levels as high as 150ppm. The antimony in polyester is a by-product of a catalyst used in the manufacture of polyester. We use ethically sourced Mica Powder on some products.
Mica a non-toxic mineral that gives off a shimmery and metallic-like appearance. It has high-quality pigment and they are also vegan friendly. We use soy, rapeseed, and coconut wax because it stimulates the economy by utilising a natural, renewable resource. Our wax is vegan-friendly and organic.
We only use high-quality scents and dyes. Our glitter mixtures are also 90% biodegradable. All of our wicks are cotton-based or specially made wood wicks. We have a 'no plastic' policy where possible, so any plastic you find in our packaging has been recycled.
