Why Soy Wax

Our soy candles are made from 100% soybean wax, which is hydrogenated soybean oil, an all-natural plant product. It is a favourite of environmentally conscious people because it is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Burning soy candles does not increase the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere.

Soy candles are great value for money. They are a new alternative to paraffin wax that is cost effective. They are also made from a renewable source.

Soy candles can last up to 50% longer than paraffin candles.

Soy candles produce about 90% less soot than paraffin candles. Soot should be avoided as it is very unhealthy and can eventually settle on furniture and walls.

Pure soy wax can easily be cleaned with hot soapy water if spilled on carpets or furniture. This eliminates the need for solvents which can be quite costly.

Scented soy candles distribute more fragrance. The soybean oil lowers the melting point of the candle which means cooler burning candles and faster scent dispersion into the atmosphere. The cooler burning temperature also makes burning candles around children and pets more safe as the melted wax is not too hot if accidently spilled.
