Facts about Soy Wax:
Soy wax is a new alternative to paraffin wax, made from soybeans, is renewable and cost effective. The soybean is one of the most versatile products used today. It has been a high protein source for millions of people for thousands of years.
Natural waxes such as soy waxes are gaining in popularity but natural waxes are not new. Beeswax and tallow were used in colonial times to produce candles . Beeswax is a great natural alternative to paraffin, but unfortunately, to get the same results as a soy-based candle, it is cost prohibitive to use 100% beeswax in candles.
Soy is in lots of things like body & skin care products, hair products, and crayons. The production and burning of soy wax candles greatly benefit the agricultural economy. An estimated 60 million pounds of soy beans is used for candle production each year, which is great news for farmers!
Soy candles also last three times longer than petroleum-based candles, have an incredible scent throw with virtually no black soot.
REMEMBER: Friends don't let friends buy paraffin wax candles.
Are Scented Soy candles safe?
Yes. When a candle burns, the wax is drawn into the wick, where it is "consumed" by the candle flame to produce water vapor and carbon dioxide. The only difference with a scented candle is that a small amount of fragrance is released as well. Reputable candle manufacturers use only fragrances that are approved for burning in candles. They also carefully monitor the addition of fragrance to ensure that the candle will burn cleanly and properly.
Our 100% soy candles are not only non-toxic but are also skin safe and skin friendly. The wax when melted will only reach a skin safe temperature therefore no burning effect. It is not advisable to leave a burning candle around young children, however you can feel more relaxed if our hot wax was to fall on their skin that it is a safe temperature unlike parrafin or petroleum based waxes.
