Why Soy?


Few people realise that most shop bought candles are made with paraffin wax, which is made from the leftover residue of the petroleum refining industry & that burning paraffin wax candles can be very nasty for you & your home. They can let off carcinogens & petrol-carbon soot into the air you breathe, which can also blacken walls & ceilings.

Candles made with soy wax offer a number of unique features: 

SOY WAX is 100% vegetable, made from pure soybean oil

SOY WAX is natural, non - toxin, biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides

SOY WAX burns longer and more cleanly than paraffin wax without soot build up

SOY WAX is water - soluble and hot soapy water will clear wax from any surface

SOY WAX has a low melting point, which gives you a long lasting candle and a room filling fragrance.

PLEASE NOTE: Soy wax candles may produce some soot, but it is non-toxic, unlike the carcinogenic black soot that paraffin candles produce.
