Soy wax is non-toxic and burns cleaner than paraffin. Paraffin wax contains petrolcarbon soot which can blacken walls, ceilings, and furniture, contaminate ventilation ductwork in your home, as well as add as many as 11 toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe.
Soy candles burn slower and cooler than paraffin wax, creating a longer burning candle. (As much as 30-50% longer-lasting than paraffin!)
Soybeans are a renewable source, unlike paraffin, which consists of petroleum.
Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (which is made from hydrogenated soybean oill) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax. Simply use soap and water to clean it up.
Buying soybean products creates important ecomnomic growth for the agriculture sector of the economy.
Soy candles are simply better for you, and your family, and the enviroment.
