Our Story

ABOUT US

THE ACDC Co STORY

Our story begins with great products. In our Dallas, Texas workshop, we design and manufacture home fragrances - extraordinary candles, scented diffuser oils & room sprays, fragranced gift collections, and bath & body products.
 
We use top quality ingredients, sourced in the USA, to create with three things in mind:
First, amazing fragrances.
Second, cosmetic-grade ingredients.
Third, affordable and accessible price points.
 
We work towards a more sustainable and renewable future using renewable, recycled and recyclable components whenever possible. While we're not perfect, we continue to build our 'No Thanks' list of ingredients we won't use in our line.
 
We're makers & doers and hope you to love what we create. Join us on our journey to bring extraordinary fragrances to life.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Since we started in 2013, we've stood behind 4 simple principles that guide our small business and our life together.

We are proudly...

about differences of cultures, backgrounds,

philosophies and ideology:

diversity, inclusiveness and equality

open dialogue and freedom of beliefs

we honor enduring and quality design:

OUR QUALITY

We started our business using cosmetic grade ingredients and have never strayed from this principle: by using the best components, we make the best products.

acdc pure cotton candle wicks

PURE COTTON WICKS

Our wicks are made from 100% pure cotton. You won't find any metal or zinc (which cause mushrooms, smoke and soot)

acdc candles use soy wax

CREAMY SOY WAX

We use a proprietary soy wax blend which uses the oil from soybeans at its core. Soy burns cleaner and releases fragrance better

acdc candles use fine perfume and essential oils

FINE PERFUME OILS

We work with quality fragrance houses worldwide to create scents that are blended from the finest essential & perfume oils

acdc candles use reusable glass jars

GLASS CONTAINERS

We use recyclable glass for our candles to encourage repurposing. The jars make great storage, drinking glasses, planters and more


OUR 'NO THANKS' LIST

As the foundation of our quality promise, we say 'no thanks' to a growing list of chemicals that we don't include in our candles, home fragrances and bath products.

Our products are vegan - there are never any animal products used and they are not tested on animals.

DYES? NO THANKS!

Why not? Aniline candle dyes are made from chemicals and because they aren't rated by the FDA, manufacturers don't have to disclose their ingredients

PARABENS? NO THANKS!

Why not? Parabens are chemical preservatives used to prolong products' shelf lives. They are easily absorbed into the body and disrupt hormone functions

SULFATES? NO THANKS!

Why not? Sulfates are chemical bonding agents that attract oil to water. They can cause skin and eye irritation and come from non-renewable resources

PESTICIDES? NO THANKS!

Why not? In farming, pesticides are used to kill insects, weeds and other 'pests'. They can contaminate soil, water, and vegetation which is taken into our food & water supply
