WHY SOY WAX?
Why choose soy wax?
Soy wax was the obviously choice for me after some quick research on google. Why soy? Well the ingredients are simple, its made from soybean oil, which is a plant-based completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly compound.
When I started looking at the ingredients of almost every big-box store bought candle I owned I saw that they were made with paraffin wax. So what’s the difference? Well paraffin is a derivative of petroleum, a by-product of the production of gasoline. Paraffin wax can produce more toxic chemicals and soot when burned, and the release of these chemicals is potentially dangerous. Paraffin wax also includes other additives such as microcrystalline and polyethylene to help with its overall appearance, how it burns and how it can throw a smell.
Seeing this left me feeling uneasy. I decided I needed to find a clean burning or melting wax. The least number of additives the better, so my soy candle journey sparked!
Take a look at some of my favorite scented candles, made with high quality natural soy wax, pure cotton braided wicks and premium fragrance oils that are always phthalate free.
