why soy wax?

March 24, 2018

We get this question all the time, it seems... why soy wax? Thankfully, we are prepared to answer this question. Did we mention that we're so glad you asked?


Here's a list of bullet points that sold us on making our all-natural soy candles using soy wax, instead or paraffin:

  • cleaner burn – our 100% pure soy wax is made with no toxins, carcinogens, pollutants or additives, which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. you also won’t find any no petrol-carbon soot like you would find in the petroleum-based paraffin candles on the market.

  • longer burn - soy wax burns cooler which means it can burn about 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.

  • biodegradable materials – soy wax is naturally biodegradable, which makes accidental spills easier to clean. all fragrances and dyes are also made of highest possible quality.

  • economy boosters – soy wax is a natural, renewable resource. we also source all of our materials from eco-conscious, US-based suppliers.

  • no lead or zinc cored wicks - ever!  our wicks are made of only cotton, wood or hemp.

So there you have it! Now that you have learned the benefits, what do you think? Share your opinions with us by commenting.


Stay bright!
