Many of the candles on the market are made from paraffin wax, a non-renewable, toxic and petroleum-based product. However, there is a more sustainable and non-toxic alternative to this wax that has many benefits: Soy wax.
Soy wax is known to be a clean burning wax because it releases very little soot. Unlike the more common alternative paraffin wax, which creates a significant amount of black soot that collects in the jar and on other surfaces where the candle may burn.
Slower Burning Times
Due to the slow burning time and cool burning temperature of the wax, candles made from soy wax tend to last longer (typically 30%-50% longer than a candle made from paraffin). So, you’ll be able to enjoy the lovely scent of your soy candle for much longer.
Natural and Renewable
Soy wax is a vegetable-based product made from the oil of soybeans, making it completely natural and renewable. On the other hand, paraffin wax is made from petroleum (which is derived from crude oil) – a non-renewable and toxic resource.
