Soy wax is a vegetable wax derived from the oil of soybeans. All of the soybeans used to create our candles have been grown in the U.S. They are eco-friendly, completely renewable, and support the American farmer. In addition to these benefits, soy candles burn cooler than paraffin candles so they last longer. They also contain no carbon which allows them to burn cleaner and not produce the toxins and soot found in paraffin. Therefore, soy candles are good for the environment and better for your health. So instead of asking why soy? We ask you why not?
