Gies Kerzen – Quality Candles since 1899

Made in Germany

Not all candles are equal. Therefore, we at Gies Kerzen set a high value on the excellence of our products. Our brand name stands for first rate quality and safety on which our customers can rely.

Today's high quality standards for candles are our benchmark. In our production we exclusively work with selected raw materials such as fully-refined paraffin wax, high-grade stearin, phthalate-free scents and pure cotton wicks. The colours and dyes we use comply with Part 3 of the DIN-Norm EN 71 standard.

The excellent quality  of our products and their health and environmental compatibility have been approved by the European Quality Association for Candles. Gies Kerzen is one of currently 33 producers whose products bear the RAL Quality Mark.

RAL Quality MarkIn order to maintain our position, we are committed to have the quality of our candles tested at regular intervals by an independent expert, officially appointed by DEKRA Umwelt GmbH. Additionally, to ensure a consistently high quality of our candles and the raw materials that go into them, our in-house quality management continually controls both finished candles and raw materials. All test results are documented accordingly.

In 2007 we substantially invested in machine conversions, enabling us for the future to produce stearin candles in our Glinde factory. Stearin candles are made from renewable raw materials which are more climate friendly than fossil fuels that emit CO2.

Reliable quality and continuous product development and improvement are the basic principles to which we have been committed for over hundred years, and which you - our loyal Gies customers - deserve.
