WHY CHOOSE SOY?
Most candles that you find today are made of paraffin wax, but unfortunately, it’s not the safest compound to be inhaling as it burns. Paraffin is derived from petroleum and made up of straight-chain hydrocarbons, which combust to produce a dark soot that can get into linens, stain walls, and lead to respiratory problems. Many candles also include fragrance oil which in itself can be toxic.
If you’re concerned about breathing in toxic fumes when you burn candles, then Soy based, essential oil candles are the way to go.
Soy candles are vegan, made from soybeans, not only making them a safe and natural alternative to petroleum-based paraffin wax, but also renewable and biodegradable. By buying soy wax products, not only are you helping to support soybean farmers, but you’re also ensuring that the newest addition to your home decor burns clean and won’t detract from your air quality.
Soy candles do not produce high levels of black soot, which is not only a pain to clean but is a health hazard as well. Soy wax cleans off of just about any surface with a simple solution of warm, soapy water.
SOY CANDLES ARE VEGAN
If you abstain from using animal products, then you might find candle shopping to be a frustrating endeavour. So many types of candles use animal products! Beeswax comes from the hives of beeves, tallow comes from the fat of animals, and some wax even comes from whales or dolphins. Soy candles are 100% vegan and do not require any animal products in their production or use.
