Our mission with Candescent is to alter our perception on how we use light bulbs, whether the power is on or off. Our company’s purpose is to sell light bulbs that can change color based on your mood and can be used in emergencies as a light source in the case of a outage without the use of candles or other possible hazardous materials. We want to provide high quality products at an affordable price, provide excellent customer service, and team up with first responders to get these lights into more homes. We do what we do because we want to reinvent the average light bulb, and we care about people affected by the loss of power.
