Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans, after the beans are cleaned, cracked & DE-hulled they are rolled into flakes. The oils is extracted from the flakes & hydrogenated
The hydrogenation coverts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated.
The vast majority of the world's soybeans come from right here in the USA ( Illinois, Iowa & Indiana)
Soy is a renewable product and comes from the farmers who plant & harvest soybeans.
Soy wax candles burn more cleaner & more slowly as opposed to other candles
Soy wax candles have no toxins, no carcinogens or pollutants. Which means they are less likely to cause allergens, also there is no petrol carbon soot unlike paraffin candles that are petroleum based.
Soy wax is biodegradable & water soluble
Soy wax is certified kosher, contains no herbicides or pesticides
Soy wax candles burn cleaner with little soot released as the candle burns, as long as the wick stays trimmed to 1/4 inch there will be no black soot. Paraffin candles may cause black soot to appear on your walls & surfaces in your home.
Soy wax is non-toxic & do not release toxins in the air as they burn.
So there you have it, Soy Wax candles explained. I am the single owner/operated of my business and stand by my candles that they are Eco-Friendly, biodegradable & reusable. I do not add any chemicals, hardening agents or UV inhibitors.
