5 Benefits of Soy Wax
Soy wax is natural and renewable. Soy wax is made from soybeans which are a natural and renewable resource. Soy wax is also biodegradable and water-soluble; meaning residual wax can be cleaned using soap and water. Paraffin wax candles are from a nonrenewable resource that contains carcinogenic substances. These substances are released into the air you breathe when you burn a paraffin wax candle.
Cleaner Burning While all candles emit some black soot while burning, candles made from soy wax burns cleaner and results in less soot. There may be some soot around the rim of the container, but much less than with a paraffin wax candle and non toxic. Also thanks to our 100% natural wooden wicks and phthalate free fragrance oils, you can breathe easy knowing you and your family are safe from any harmful toxins.
Longer Lasting Soy Wax candles burn at cooler temperatures, resulting in a longer lasting burn than paraffin candles of the same size. The best soy candles are made from 100% natural soy wax without any synthetic or petroleum derived additives. These additives are not necessary and yet many candle companies blend soy wax into a paraffin wax candle. This is for the benefit of being able to claim 'natural' or 'soy candle' but also to keep the price of the candle competitive. Hence, if you see a soy candle that is very cheap, the chances increase that it will contain paraffin or another synthetic wax.
Biodegradable Soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble, so when you buy a soy candle you are doing something that benefits the environment.
Better Scent Soy wax Candles are an excellent scent carrier and doesn't require chemical amplifiers. This is because the slower burn time means the scent is released more gradually. On the other side, you won’t get an overwhelming scent when you light a soy wax candle, but you will get a more sensuous long-lasting scent.
