3 Reasons we use Soy Wax for our Candles
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from soybeans. The soy we use to make our candles is GMO* free and sourced from responsible farmers and suppliers.
*Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as organisms (i.e. plants, animals or microorganisms) in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination
Soy is biodegradable which means it breaks down into natural elements with the aid of bacteria or fungi. It is also a renewable source, unlike old school paraffin wax which is derived from petroleum oil, and as we know is a dwindling and nonrenewable source.
3. Clean Burning
Paraffin wax produces harmful by-products when burned or melted which soy wax does not. Soy wax is non-toxic making it better for the environment and your health.
So to summarise, we choose to use soy wax as it offers a clean burning, environmentally friendly alternative to paraffin wax whilst not compromising on fragrance throw and quality finish!
