EGO Clean Light is a revolutionary new vegetable oil lamp that significantly reduces CO2 emissions compared to conventional paraffin candles.

Not everybody knows that most candles – and especially the cheaper varieties – are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum and emits significant quantities of carbon dioxide when burned.

Important research done in the United States in 2009 confirmed that smoke from paraffin wax candles also releases harmful toxins than can increase the risk of cancer, asthma and eczema. The impact of normal candles on personal health is therefore on a par with passive smoking and congested city traffic.

Imagine a romantic candlelight dinner in a restaurant with 40 tables: the result is similar to having a smoker seated at every table. A lounge illuminated by relaxing candles …. the equivalent of a number of cars parked around the sofa with their engines running.

EGO Clean Light is a vegetable oil alternative that is friendlier to the environment and healthier for us and our children. An elegant ceramic and bamboo lamp houses a bowl of palm oil with a cotton wick that produces only one thousandth of the emissions of a typical paraffin wax candle. The lamp naturally acts as an air purifier in the presence of smoke and odours.

The palm is now the world's main source of vegetable oil for human consumption and also boasts the highest productivity per acre. EGO makes its lamps only from the non-edible part of the palm (palm kernel oil), which is also used in shampoos and soaps.

An EGO lamp refill lasts between 30 and 50 hours, depending on atmospheric humidity, pressure and temperature.

EGO Clean Lights come in fascinating gift packs and can be collected and arranged as wished. You can even switch top and bottom sections to create new combinations for different occasions.
