Why Soy is Better?

Why choose soy wax?
  • it's better for your health...the air...the environment! 

 

1. SOY WAX CANDLES ARE NON-TOXIC

  • If you love candles as much as we do, you should know about the dangers of paraffin, a common candle wax. Paraffin, a petroleum-based wax, is the biggest baddie in the world of candles! Burning paraffin emits toxic chemicals into the air that we breathe. 

2. SOY WAX CANDLES BURN CLEAN

  • Unlike paraffin wax, which gives off black soot when burned, one of the big benefits of soy candles is that soy wax burns cleaner. As a vegetable-based wax, soy wax does not give off any harmful byproducts, and all you smell is its beautiful scent, a main reason for burning candles in the first place. 

3. SOY WAX IS ALL-NATURAL, RENEWABLE, AND VEGAN

  •  Derived from the soybean, soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature. The majority of the world’s soybeans are produced in the U.S., so if you’re reading this in the U.S., soy wax is also a strong domestic source.  

4. SOY WAX CANDLES ARE COST-EFFECTIVE WITH A SLOW BURN

  • While soy candles are sometimes more expensive than paraffin candles, they last up to 50 percent longer. This makes them more cost-effective. Furthermore, one of the big benefits of soy candles is that they burn more evenly. So, less wax is left clinging to the sides of the glass.
