In harmony with the environment
Soy is a plant of the Fabaceae family, native to Southeast Asia. Its seeds contain a large amount of protein, thanks to which it has become a staple in the diet of many people. In grocery stores you can find soybean pastes, pates, sausages or cutlets, among others. Wax is derived from soybean oil which makes it a plant-based product suitable for vegans.
Biodegradability is a big advantage of soy candles, and their combustion does not leave in the air toxic substances and heavy metals - after complete burning the packaging can be reused to store for example self-made cosmetics or other products. The reuse of packaging reduces the amount of garbage thrown away, which is an ecological solution and beneficial for the planet. In addition, if the wick is made of pure cotton without admixtures it also contributes to preventing litter.
Properties of soy wax
In contrast to paraffin wax candles, soy candles do not have the effect of burning and depositing black soot. Burning paraffin emits harmful substances which we inhale - these include formaldehyde which can cause bronchial asthma, toluene and the more toxic benzene, which are responsible for irritation of the mucous membranes and skin, headaches, heart rhythm disorders. When burned, benzene manifests itself as a smoky flame. In soy wax these substances are not present, so the flame during burning is clean and uniform - the reaction occurring is not violent.
High fragrance quality
When looking for that perfect scented candle, soy candles are worth considering. Soy wax is an unscented substance, so the candle fully smells the composition that was created by the manufacturer.
Such an unscented "base" leaves a wide field for all kinds of fragrances regardless of whether they are oriental, floral, fruity or sweet. With paraffin wax candles the aroma can be disturbed by the not-so-pleasant smell of paraffin, while natural beeswax has a subtle honey scent, which in one composition will work perfectly, but not to every composition will fit.
The wide range of available scents of soy candles in original packaging allows us to precisely adjust the scent to the situation or place, depending on the final effect we would like to achieve. Soy candles with floral or fresh scents are perfect for everyday use in the home or office. Heavier" scents - woody and sweet scents can be used when spending evenings by the fireplace and a hot drink in the autumn-winter time, they will well emphasize the mood of a romantic dinner and will make the stay in a spa or massage parlor more pleasant for the customer. The variety of soy candle scents will certainly help everyone choose the best one.
Safe for children and easy to clean
Soy wax burns at a lower temperature than paraffin wax, so there is no "tunneling" effect of the candle - it burns evenly over the entire surface, and the melted wax itself is not hot enough to cause skin burns. If a child touches the melted wax of a burning candle, the child will not be burned as with other candles made from products with a higher melting point. However, this does not remove the need to watch out for a child being near a burning candle. Melted wax is also easy to clean - all you need is warm water and soap or dish liquid, and no unsightly marks remain on the countertop after cleaning.
