Why we don’t you use paraffin wax in our candles?

Paraffin candles are much easier to produce, the wax costs less, you can use less fragrance oil, no curing time, and they’re much faster and cheaper to produce. Soy wax is much harder to make, takes twice as long, and costs roughly 50% more to make. Though paraffin candles are much easier, faster, and cheaper to make, we had to look at it from a consumers’ point of view when we made the decision to go with soy. If somebody truly wants the best candle they can get, they have to get a soy candle. For the high end candle lover, soy will dominate the market.

How can I tell I am getting only soy wax in the candles I buy?

1) Is the wax extremely hard, smooth? Then it’s likely a paraffin candle.

2) Is the wax creamy looking? It’s soy.

3) Is the wax softer?  It’s soy.

4) Does the wax “mottle” after the first burn? That’s a characteristic of soy.

How do you make a candle out of soybeans?

Soy wax is made through a process of boiling raw soybeans, and then hydrogenating them several times to produce a wax-like state. The process for our unique candles produces clean burning candles with the ultimate scent throw.

So what’s wrong with buying paraffin candles?

One of the first by-products produced when processing petroleum is paraffin, essentially making it a toxic waste product. In most industries disposing of waste products is one of the highest costs of business. But the petroleum industry found a way to eliminate this cost in paraffin wax.

Oil refineries are tightly regulated by the EPA when they burn off waste materials. However, take a trip to almost any store, and you can purchase the waste material to take home and burn in your own home! These emissions are the same as those produced by burning diesel fuel, and have been known to cause upper respiratory problems.
