The Keap Story

A fine fragrance and a flickering flame takes you on a journey and inspires powerful moments of reflection.
It also sparked the idea for Keap.

ONCE UPON A CANDLE…

Keap was born from a simple question — why was it so hard to buy a high-quality candle that was also sustainable?

When we moved to New York, candles became our favorite way to unwind from the crowds, commutes, and chaos. But we never found one that smelled great, looked great, and did right by our planet.

So we rolled up our sleeves, took perfumery classes, toured factories—and found plenty of opportunities to make a better candle.

After a few years of hard work, we’re proud to offer a truly one-of-a-kind candle: one that’s masterfully perfumed with nature-inspired scents. and virtually zero-waste, all while sharing light with communities that need it most.

So the next time you light a Keap candle, know that you’re not just unwinding—you’re also helping make the world a little better.

Keep the fire burning,

Steve & Harry
