Made in Germany

 From wick to packaging, Cup Candle produces its tea lights in Ger­many using certified raw materials and highly innovative and safe produc­tion processes.

Our products undergo continual internal and exter­nal quality checks as a matter of course.

Brilliant Shine

The new cups achieve a brilliant shine. In contrast to conventional cups, the transparent plastic cups create a much brighter and warmer light.

In addition, the temperature-resistant plas­tic has significantly lower heat dissipation – an essential safety fea­ture as aluminium cups can become extremely hot.

0% Aluminium

The use of aluminium is not just a critical consideration among environmen­tal organisations; more and more consumers are also develop­ing sensitivity towards aluminium. It is Cup Candle’s intention to make a positive contribution to this best seller, hence we use only new and innovative materials. Aluminium is replaced by recyclable plastic that has already been recycled itself. Our ther­moforming process requires just a fraction of the plastic needed by a con­ventional injection-moulded plastic cup.

The New Technology

Thanks to the technical knowledge and innovative materials that are available to us today, we can abstain from using aluminium to make tea light cups. By greatly simplifying previous production methods, Cup Candle developed one of world’s most innovative manufacturing processes in the candle industry.


The new manufacturing process

The patented manufacturing process has considerable environ­mental and economic benefits. Using Thermoforming allows for a highly efficient production method and a considera­ble reduction in energy consumption.

Production and ingredients comply with RAL standards.


Click and Light Technology

The Click and Light Technology greatly simplifies manufacturing and handling of the new tea lights. They are supplied in ‘candle magazines’ similar to blisters. The tea light can easily be clicked out of its pre-punched holder, keeping the tea light in a neat and pristine condition prior to use.


The new packaging

The tea light magazines are delivered in flow-pack packaging which provides our customers with the ability of individual labelling and branding.  

In addition, we offer premium Tray Packaging.
