What are the benefits of burning soy vs Paraffin based candles.
Soy candles are made from soy beans which is a natural renewable source grown by American farmers. Soy wax is ecofriendly which allows a cleaner burning candle. They are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. It has a lower melting point which allows it to burn slower. Since soy candles are biodegradable, it's easy to clean up with just a little soap and water. Burning candles made from soy wax is a better alternative for allergy and asthma suffers.
The majority of the candles on the market today are made from paraffin wax which is made from petroleum byproducts. When you burn a paraffin candle the petroleum in the paraffin wax releases toxic black smoke (soot). This is what causes the excessive black soot around the glass when you burn a paraffin candle. Paraffin wax is toxic to pets, especially birds. The black soot can also damage your walls and furniture. Soy wax burns clean with almost no black soot.
Many companies use the word soy blend and claim to be all natural. Soy blends are not all natural and contain other additives and or paraffin wax. We do not add any paraffin, additives or dyes to any of our candle products.
