Soy candles are made from soybeans - a natural, renewable source that grows easily in many regions. This is in contrast to traditional paraffin candles which are made from petroleum. Petroleum is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances which are harmful to our bodies. Natural soy wax is a much safer way of indulging in a candle.
Zero toxins, carcinogens or pollutants mean that soy candles are less likely to trigger allergies. Soy wax is much healthier for us and the environment. This planet-friendly substance doesn't emit any nasties into our atmosphere.
Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax. This means that soy wax burns cooler and will last longer than paraffin candles. An extended candle life means that you can enjoy delicious scents for much longer.
A candle's scent is emitted into the air from the wax pool that surrounds the wick. Because the melting point of soy wax is lower than paraffin, this means that there is usually a larger pool around the wick, resulting in a much stronger aroma.
Biodegradable and water soluble
Since soybeans are a vegetable, soy wax is naturally biodegradable. This makes accidental spills easier to clean up.
