What is the Advantage of Soy Wax?
Soy beans are pressed to extract their natural oils. This oil is then hydrogenated to turn it into a wax. A natural product, soy wax is friendly to the environment and is 100% biodegradable. Can your paraffin candle do that?
Soy wax has a low melting point which facilitates very easy and effective cleaning. Hot tap water and soap will clean away any leftover wax. Soy wax also produces what is often referred to as "gray" soot instead of the common "black" soot that is produced by paraffin candles. "Gray" soot is much easier to clean and can be wiped away with a damp cloth. Further it is produced in much smaller quantities that paraffin candles and often times you will never even see it develop.
Low burn Temperature
With a lower burning temperature than most other candles, soy candles are safer to have around your home and business. When our container candles are burning they are still cool enough that you can dip your finger in the wax without scalding. Most paraffin candles would burn your skin if you came into contact with molten wax.
All Natural Renewable Resource
Since soy wax comes from the soy bean, the wax is 100% natural. Paraffin wax is a by-product of petroleum production and is not renewable. As long as we take care to maintain proper crops and fields soy is an renewable resource.
Soy candles burn slower and last 30% - 50% longer than a comparable paraffin candle offering you a better value for your dollar.
Great Scent Throw
Soy Candles retain their scent for the life of the candle. The fragrance does not seep out over time. They also have a large scent/fragrance "throw" which will cover a large area.
Larger and Brighter
Soy candles lower melting point allow for all natural cotton and paper wicks to be used. These wicks allow us to create a larger brighter flame without creating excess smoke and soot. A soy candle provides a better atmosphere for your well being.
