Afterglow Skin Studio is pleased to help light the way to end sex trafficking
… with hand-crafted candles on a mission to abolish slavery.
Beauty of Hope candles will transform your home into a retreat while bringing healing and restoration to survivors of sex trafficking. Ten percent (10%) of each purchase is donated to non-profits that are working every day to set men, women, and children free.
Each candle is designed with unique fragrance combinations using naturally derived fragrance oils and essential oils. Beauty of Hope has partnered with master scent artists and fragrances houses to design notes that are unique and classic.
With finely woven cotton wick and made-in-the-USA vessels, the 8-oz. glass votives from its signature collection are designed to be reusable for succulents, makeup brushes, pens … and maybe even re-purposed as favorite drinking glasses!
After testing multiple waxes and blends and listening to what customers sought after in a luxury candle Beauty of Hope landed on a custom soy blend sourced from USA farmers that creates the ideal smooth and clean burn.
