What is soy wax?
Whether it’s a $3 candle from the local trash can or a votive from a high-end boutique, chances are you’ve smelled a paraffin candle, whether it has passed the sniff test and the votive has made its way home. Since paraffin wax seems to be dominating the small torch scene, you might not have known that there are clean alternatives to paraffin.
When we talk about clean burning candles, we are talking about soy wax candles. Soy wax is made from vegetable soybeans. Once the beans are harvested, they are then cleaned, crushed, shelled and rolled into flakes. Hydrogenated soybean oil is extracted from the flakes, with the remaining flakes used for food sources such as animal feed.
What is paraffin wax?
We all love a scented candle with a divine aroma that fills the room. But it is important to understand that not all candles are created equal and it all depends on how they are made. While there are a few ingredients we despise, paraffin may be the worst (and most common) offender.
Paraffin is one of the most popular candle waxes due to its cheap production costs. Paraffin is a petroleum by-product used to make candle wax. Before undergoing an intense refinement process, it is known to contain a wide range of harmful toxins, such as toluene and benzene.
But even after the paraffin has been heavily processed, some experts have expressed that the toxins can still linger, ready to flood your living space the second you use it! Blow it up lid In addition, paraffin is not biodegradable and therefore not a sustainable material. The only thing paraffin is good for is that it’s cheap; and when it comes to your home, “cheap and dodgy” isn’t what you deserve.
Why is soy wax better than paraffin wax?
When it comes to soy wax, there are many “green” and natural benefits. Soy wax is a 100% natural wax derived from environmentally friendly renewable resources, while paraffin wax is made from petroleum and is non-renewable. Soy wax also burns slower than paraffin wax, which means you get a candle that lasts longer and is able to reach its wax-maximum capacity.
Candles made from soy wax burn cleaner and produce less soot. Another reason to choose soy wax when it comes to candles is the fact that soy wax is an excellent fragrance carrier that does not require chemical enhancers. The result is a well-balanced, true-to-scent candle. Now it just scents!
