Soy Candles are Simply Better for You and the Environment
Benefits of Soy Wax
- Clean Burning — Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin with no petrol-carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceilings and furniture, as well as add toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe.
- Long Burning — Soy Candles burn slower and cooler than paraffin wax creating a longer burning candle.
- Renewable Resource — The major advantage that soybean wax has over paraffin is that its source, soybeans, can be renewed so much more quickly than paraffin’s source, crude oil. Whereas oil, a fossil fuel, takes millions of years to form, a crop of soybeans can be replanted at least once a year.
- Biodegradable — Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (basically made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax.
