Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. It also contains no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. no petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
All of our candles in containers are made with soy wax. Our wax melts are a blend of soy wax and paraffin.
