The Scoop On Soy Wax: 7 Reasons Why You'll Love These Candles

The Scoop On Soy Wax: 7 Reasons Why You'll Love These Candles

You’ve probably noticed that Kandie Bakerie candles are hand-poured, all-natural and made with premium soy wax. Here are seven reasons why:

1. Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource

Soy wax is made from soybeans, which are a renewable source that can be easily grown and harvested. This makes soy wax a more environmentally friendly option than paraffin wax, which is a by-product made from petroleum.

2. Soy wax candles burn longer

Because soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, it burns at a lower temperature. This means that soy wax candles will burn for a longer period of time than paraffin candles of the same size.

3. Soy wax candles are biodegradable

When soy wax candles are burned, they release water vapor and carbon dioxide into the air, which are both biodegradable! In contrast, paraffin candles release petroleum-based chemicals into the air when they burn.

4. Soy wax candles are non-toxic

Soy wax is a non-toxic, hypoallergenic material, making it a safer choice for people with allergies or sensitivities. In contrast, paraffin wax can release toxic chemicals, such as toluene and benzene, when burned.

5. Soy wax candles are cleaner burning

Because soy wax burns at a lower temperature, it produces less soot than paraffin wax. This means that soy wax candles are less likely to leave a residue on your walls or other surfaces.

6. Soy wax candles have a longer shelf life

Soy wax is more stable than paraffin wax and is less prone to deterioration over time. This means that soy wax candles will last longer when stored properly.

Overall, soy wax candles are a more sustainable, non-toxic, and longer-lasting option than paraffin wax candles! Check out our bestselling candles to reduce your environmental impact!
