The secret to a perfect scented candle is a simple set of materials: wax, fragrance, a wick and a container. Having burned many candles as roommates (on the eponymous Keap Street in Brooklyn) Steve and Harry became fascinated by the burn down. What started as a pet project turned into something more: google led to perfumery courses, led to touring major candle manufacturers and ultimately, home production and business. Keap candles are simply the best. A pure product, crafted with the highest caliber materials at an affordable price: nothing more, nothing less.
Well almost! Steve and Harry want their products to make more than an olfactive impact. Keap Candles was founded as a Public Benefit Corporation, with a dual mission: to improve the scented candle market and increase access to affordable, sustainable light for people living off the electrical grid. Keap has partnered with SolarAid to create a luminous revolution: with every candle Keap sells, a portion of the profit supports the distribution costs of delivering solar lamps. Keap’s Buy a Candle, Light a Home program is a shining example of better business practices.
