Benefits of Soy Wax

 

  • Soy Wax is natural

 

Soy Wax is derived from soybeans, a natural, renewable source. Soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns solid at room temperature. In comparison to the most widely used alternative wax on the market, paraffin wax, Soy Wax contains nothing artificial. Paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum, originates from a non-renewable source that contains carcinogenic substances.

 

  • Soy Wax does not release toxins

 

According to recent studies, paraffin candles, when burnt, release harmful toxins into the air, which may lead to respiratory problems. Soy Wax won’t release petrol-carbon soot, which is also released when burning a paraffin candle, meaning no black oily marks on your walls or furnishings.

 

  • Soy Wax is environmentally friendly

 

Soy Wax is derived from soybeans, not only making them a safe and natural alternative to paraffin wax candles but also renewable and biodegradable.

 

  • Soy Wax burns longer

 

Soy Wax candles and melts may seem to be more expensive than some of the paraffin candles on the market but, when considering your candles and melts for your home, be sure to factor in the chemical composition of soy wax, which allows it to burn evenly. This means Soy Wax candles and melts can last up to 50% longer than paraffin wax alternatives and are therefore more cost-effective in the long run. Soy Wax also burns more evenly, so less wax is left stuck to the sides of the glass as waste.

 

 

  • Soy Wax has a lower melting point

 

Soy Wax burns at a cooler temperature than paraffin wax. This is what makes Soy Wax more cost-effective in the long run but it is also a safety feature. Soy Wax is less likely to scald or burn if you accidentally spill any melted wax on your skin.

 

  • Soy Wax scents are stronger

 

From the points above it’s clear to see the benefits of Soy Wax over paraffin wax but a final point to mention is that, due to Soy Wax burning cleaner and slower, the scent is released gradually. There won’t be an immediate wave of strong-smelling scent, so these create a more pleasant atmosphere for most people.

 

  • A Little Scent by Xenca uses cotton wicks

 

Our candles are made from unbleached cotton wicks, these are generally safer to burn and produce no pollutants.
