While soy wax can be more temperamental to work with than the alternatives, we have decided to use 100% soy due to its non-toxic nature and longer burn time. Soy wax comes from soybeans making it a great alternative to the widely used petroleum-based paraffin wax. We want to ensure that our candles are clean burning, meaning they do not release any harmful chemicals into the air you breathe.
Additionally soy wax is a great option as it is renewable and biodegradable. Using soy wax also means that our candles are vegan friendly, while some other waxes are blended with animal fats or tested on animals. Our soy wax at this time is sourced from the US and while we highlight the positive aspects of soy versus other waxes, we are not ignorant to the repercussions the boom of soy products and farming has had on our environment. This is why we put such importance on sustainability not only in this business, but in our lifestyle.
