  Soy Wax:
Why Soy Wax?
The soybean is one of the most versatile products used today.  It has been a high protein source for millions of people for thousands of years.  However, being a food source is only the beginning of the uses of this abundant resource.
In the past century, research efforts surrounding soy and its uses have resulted in a multitude of everyday consumer goods such as body & skin care products, hair products, cleaning products, paint removers, crayons, pens, and yes…you guessed it…candle wax.

Soy candles are soot free.
Candles made from soy wax do not emit the soot and fumes that are attributed to run-of-the-mill paraffin candles.  You’ve probably seen it a hundred times.  You buy a paraffin candle that smells nice, it’s colorful, the presentation is perfect…then you light it.  Within minutes, you can see the black residue rising from the lit wick, staining the jar or container from which these candles burn…and that’s just from the first time you light it.  Continued use of these paraffin candles will not only further blacken the jar or container it sits in…it can blacken your walls, ceilings, vents, AC units, heaters, curtains or blinds, and even carpets…and it’s not just dirt that stains your home.  Now, imagine that same soot being inhaled into your lungs.

Soy candles don’t put your health at risk.
Soy candles do not release the toxins that paraffin candles emit.  According to the state of California’s Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986), there are at least seven toxins in paraffin candle wax, including benzene, a carcinogen.

Paraffin is a petroleum product – a byproduct of oil refining.  Most fragrance oils used for candle making are petroleum-based synthetics.  The soot from these materials can contain carcinogens, neurotoxins, and reproductive toxins.  Testing and air chamber analysis by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found the following compounds, in significant quantity, in a random group of over 30 candles tested: acetone; benzene; trichlorofluoromethane; carbon disulfide; butanone; trichloroethane; carbon tetrachloride carbon black (soot) particulate matter; trichlo-roethene; tetrachloroethene; tolulene; chlorobenzene; ethylbenzene; styrene; xylene; phenol; cresol; cyclopentene; and lead.  Obviously you’d have to be a chemist to truly know what most of these chemicals are, but according to the EPA, they pose a health hazard with continued exposure over time.

Soy candles help our environment.

Soybeans are a renewable and biodegradable resource.  Candle wax is just one example of hundreds of uses of this versatile legume.  Even today, new uses of soy are being researched because of the abundance and growing potential of this bean.

Soy candles help the U.S. economy & farmers.

The production and burning of soy wax candles can greatly benefit the American agricultural economy.  If soy wax replaced common paraffin wax, an estimated 60 million pounds of soy beans would be required for annual candle production.


Soy Wax vs. Paraffin Wax

  • Soy candles are soot free.
  • Soy candles burn slower and last between 30% and 50% longer than a paraffin candle of the same size.
  • Soy candles burn at a lower temperature to enable the use of 100% cotton wicks rather than the lead core wicks traditionally used in paraffin candles.
  • Soy candles support U.S. soybean farmers whereas paraffin candles may be manufactured with foreign oil.
  • Container soy wax adheres to containers.  Votive soy wax releases from molds. (No mold release agents are required).
  • Soy wax does not require any additives. (Only dyes and fragrance, if desired).
