Why Choose Soy Wax?

Why choose Soy Wax? 

 

1) Soy wax is natural!

Soy wax is derived from the soybean and the soy oil is hydrogenated which is solid at room temperature. Soy wax does not contain anything artificial! 

Soy was is known for being an excellent alternative to the typical chemical-filled waxes found in cheap wax/candle products. Go a head and check out the ingredient labels of wax melts and candles found at your local convenient store. What will you find? Paraffin wax will most likely be the type of wax you will find. 

According to healthline.com, "This type of wax is made from petroleum as a by-product of making gasoline. One 2009 study found that burning paraffin wax releases potentially dangerous chemicals, such as toluene."2) Soy burns cleaner.

2) Soy burns cleaner than other waxes.

Ever hear someone complain of a headache after burning a candle or wax melt? Usually, this is not due to the fragrance but rather the chemicals that petroleum based wax burns off. Since soy wax is natural, it burns cleaner and does not emit chemicals. 

Our candles feature wood wicks which also help reduce the amount of smoke emitted when burning a candle.
