Those of you who are particularly concerned about air quality and safety will get a complete picture of our flames - from the small wicks to the large fireplaces.There is a lot of talk about air quality.
There is no doubt that we are exposed to bad air quality at times. The air we breathe is affected by many different sources - living flames are just one.
CO2 is often used as an indicator of air quality, but this does not mean that it is harmful at the levels typically found in homes and public buildings. The levels of CO2 that are considered to be safe are guidelines for general air quality, and they should not be seen as a health norm. CO2 is easy to measure and is therefore often used to find out if there is a good replacement of the air in a room. However, there is no evidence that CO2 poses a significant danger to your indoor climate. You are producing CO2 as you read this. Oxygen enters your lungs - and some of what you breathe out again is CO2. Your plants in the windowsill produce CO2 when you sleep. CO2 is in the soda we drink... CO2 is a natural part of the air we breathe... Although it is invisible and often goes unnoticed, carbon dioxide (CO2) is actually all around us. In fact, it is an essential component of life on Earth. Plants need CO2 to grow, and animals need oxygen, which comes from plants. Thus, the carbon cycle ensures that there is a continuous exchange of these two important gases between the atmosphere and living things. However, human activity is disrupting this delicate balance.
That the world is being attacked by ever-increasing amounts of pollution is beyond doubt. We all have to do our part to reduce pollution, and that includes those of us who use living flames for warmth and ambience in our homes.

Everything that burns produces CO2. With TenderFlame, the levels are always well within what is referred to as health levels. This also applies to the largest burners.TenderFlame table lights, lanterns and table burners do not use up your air. You are your own air meter. If you have a living room full of guests, it does not take long before one of them notices that there is dense air. Then it's up with the window or balcony door. Fresh air - new oxygen - and everything is as it should be. Nature is smart - and does not allow us to breathe bad air. Our focus is to eliminate the risk of substances that can be harmful. This applies to the invisible particles from combustion and CO. How: When our steel wicks burn, the combustion is almost complete. This means that the flame is clean. The test results we present are based on normal circumstances, which means that they are relevant in relation to how people use flames at home.
About the tests:
Our tests are performed by reputable laboratories in Norway and abroad. They primarily compare TenderFlame with wax candles,tealights and larger log candles.
CO2 is a natural part of the air and a central part of the carbon cycle. When substances containing carbon burn, this produces CO2. We also get CO2 by breathing living organisms. Aerosols are microscopic droplets - acting as evaporated particles.
CO - Carbon monoxide in air is primarily a result of incomplete combustion of carbon. High levels of CO are toxic and very dangerous.
Our flames burn clean!
After extensive testing*, our flames have shown values that are far below what are standard values for combustion in a home environment.
At near complete combustion, water vapor, CO2, negligible concentrations of aerosols and fine particles ** and CO *** are formed.
Lilly 8 cm burns 10 times cleaner than one tea candle
Lilly 8 cm burns 60 times cleaner than one tea light in a tea light holder
Lilly 10 cm burns 16 times cleaner than one tea candle in a similar holder
* Swedish Testing (RISE), MycoTeam Norway, TüV Rheinland Germany.
** We have the best test result on fine particles where aerosols and soot are also included.
*** Our burners provide only a 25th of the recommended level - up to25ppm (parts per million) is acceptable for workplaces - 9ppm at home.
