Why Soy Wax?

By 5th March 2016News

Soy candles are simply better for you, your family, and your environment!

Soy wax is biodegradable and cleans up with plain old soap and water. It is 100% natural and made from pure soy bean oil. By contrast paraffin wax is petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances and therefore non-environmentally friendly.

The main reasons for choosing soy wax over paraffin wax are:

  • Soy candles are natural – they contain no herbicides or pesticides and we only use high quality scents.
  • Soy candles burn 50% longer – soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 50% longer than a paraffin candle.
  • Soy candles are non-toxic and cleaner burning– As soy wax is made from vegetable oil it is clean burning and releases no known carcinogens when it is burnt.
  • The scent from soy candles is much stronger –  Due to the wax burning at a cooler temperature, a healthier ‘wax pool’ around the wick is created. This ‘wax pool’ allows the fragrance oils to vaporise easily and release more fragrance into the home.
  • Biodegradable and water soluble – As our candles are made from soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills are easier to clean.
  • Renewable Resource – Soybeans are an environmentally friendly, sustainable and a renewable resource.
