A very well-known fact, soy candles are a great choice for anyone looking to make their home eco-friendly.
Looking for a safer alternative to traditional candles that release harmful substances into the air?
Check out our reasons why we think soy candles will be your first and only choice from now on!
Here are the top 5 reasons why soy candles are the best:
1. There’s no harmful residue left after burning
Traditional candles are made from paraffin wax. When they burn, paraffin burns at a high temperature which causes the release of toxic chemicals called “PBTs“.
These include things like benzene and toluene that can cause headaches, dizziness and nausea.
2. Soy candle wax is biodegradable
Soy wax does not contain petroleum – a byproduct of fossil fuels.
This means that soy candles do not contribute to air pollution when they burn, unlike traditional candle waxes.
3. Soy candles can burn 50% longer!
Soy wax candles have a lower melting point than paraffin wax, allowing them to burn up to 50% longer than a paraffin wax candle.
This is because soy products are made with vegetable oil, which burns cleaner than the paraffin that traditional candles use.
4. Soy burns cleanly and produces no soot
Soy candles burn at a much lower temperature than traditional candles.
As such, they produce less particulate matter or “soot” while burning. This makes them easier to breathe around as the air is cleaner for anyone in the room.
When you burn traditional candles, the wick and wax both burn at high temperatures.
The smoke from these contain soot that can settle on your furniture, walls and be breathed in. Soot is composed of heavy metals that can cause respiratory diseases like emphysema, bronchitis, or asthma when inhaled.
5. Soy Wax all-natural, vegan and cruelty-free!
Soy wax is a completely natural and renewable resource. Other candle waxes utilize animal fat in the making process. This means that they are NOT vegan or vegetarian friendly.
