Types – Applications – Properties
When colors need to be adapted to the raw materials (wax, fragrances, additives) and production process of a manufacturer we recommend custom developed colors. These colors are designed according to manufacturer’s requirements and tested under defined conditions. Each delivery batch is manufactured using a standardized production process according to specified color values and following strict quality tests. This allows customers to save on tedious development work but not compromising on quality, as they will possess a ready-made , tested color product. Using these customized colors can minimize expensive production costs.
We recommend these colors
- To avoid errors caused by frequent mixing processes
- To increase productivity
- To standardize industrial production processes
- To simplify quality assurance
Rainbow Color-Mixing System
Manufacturers that choose to work with a few base colors and develop their own color formulas in their laboratories are supported by our innovative RAINBOW system. RAINBOW is a cloud-based software developed by us that provides users with formulas, with different types of wax and production modes being taken into account. There are formulae for over dipping and solid-coloring.
RAINBOW makes it possible for you to be faster and more flexible when responding to customer requests or rush orders. Warehousing will be simplified and the amount of capital tied up can be decreased. However, colorists and final testing under production conditions is still required.
Bekro informs candle manufacturers and retailers about the future color trends as early as one year in advance, so that your range of candles will always be up-to-date.
Bekro has partnered with trendsetters, trend scouts and leading trend agencies for many years. In personal discussions, during trend presentations and from trend forecasts we gather information that does not only influence the Bekro trend but is also actively used for this purpose. In this way, you get precisely tailored, customized and seasonal color lines that are important pillars for you when planning and arranging your product range.
Scratch the surface
Finding space for intimacy and solitude becomes a priority. This trend is about getting back to the self, getting hands-on and developing a deep connection with the items around you. The concept of ‘raw’ products and experiences inspires a search for ever more tactile activities and we are drawn to the woodshed and workshop. The room is filled with bitter, raw natural scents like wood shavings, smoke and charcoal.

With darker days comes an appreciation for darker tales and harsh truths. In uncertain times we hide away, getting lost in a good book, but we no longer expect these tales to be full of positivity; intrigued by mystery and darkness as much as light. As night descends over the Black Forest, fairy lights twinkle, the fire gently crackles and sweet-smelling reductions bubble on the stove. The nostalgic scent of baked gingerbread and freshly cut fir fills the air.

This Christmas, the art of entertaining at home is central to celebrations as we seek frivolity and fun. The decadent parties of the past inspire champagne filled evenings. Rooms are plush and ornately decorated; finished with drinks trolleys and cut crystal cocktail glasses. Enter the new golden era of the soiree, where things are done properly. Fragrances fizz and sparkle undercut by tones of chalky patiserries and luxury confectionery.

In a quest for purity and freshness we embrace exotic botanical infused mists and succulent tropical environments.
