Our soy wax is nontoxic, contains no parabens, no carcinogens or pollutants, which means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies and chronic sinus issues. Our soy candles burn clean and smell natural, without emitting cancer-causing and endocrine disrupting chemicals paraffin wax does, while burning. Our soy candles burn cooler which means you can enjoy your soy candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle. You can also enjoy them as massage candles, as they are skin-safe and burn at a lower temperature.
Soy wax is a soft, non-toxic 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. The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed. Our soy candles are handmade, vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly and support the American farmer instead of the foreign oil industry.
