We are often asked why we choose to make our candles using soy wax. There are various other waxes out there that can be used, and the main competitor to soy, is paraffin wax. There are multiple reasons why we choose not to use paraffin and although soy wax candles are a little more expensive, they are 100% worth the few extra pennies and here's why.
It's simple, soy wax is better. It's better for the environment, meaning it is a natural and sustainable resource unlike paraffin wax. It's better for your home and better for your family due to not releasing toxins. It also produces 90% less soot into the air, allowing you to reuse your container and keeping your walls and ceilings safe in your home. Overall it creates a better performing product.
Soy has a lower burning temperature which means you get more for your money. Soy candles burn slower, meaning fragrance is gradually released, rather than an instant hit of scent, which doesn’t last. Soy is biodegradable so if it spills on your tablecloth or clothing, it's a lot easier to clean than paraffin.
