Soy wax defined

Hero

Soy wax was created by a group of college students from Purdue University in 1996, tasked to create a birthday candle from a renewable resource. Soy wax can be pure and unblended, blended with other natural oils, or mixed with paraffin to form parasoy wax.

What are the benefits?

Soy is 100% sustainable and renewable. While oil reserves shrink and paraffin prices rise, soy is only limited by how much we grow. It has a clean and slow burn and an opulent cream colour. It’s the earth-friendly option.

By contrast, candles made from paraffin wax (a petroleum bi-product), especially those with lead wicks, have been associated with an increased risk for cancer due to the chemicals they contain (high levels of acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, toluene, benzene and acrolein levels). They produce soot that becomes airborne and damages lungs. See the EPA report for the full story.

As it has a lower melting point, soy wax is often housed in glass vessels. Add aromatic accents to your décor with eco-friendly soy wax candles and protect your family and yourself from harmful toxic chemicals.
