When you are buying a candle, the aroma and scent are not the only reason to consider. Different waxes have unique properties that can affect the performance of a candle. To speak in a broad spectrum about wax, it is a carbon-containing, flammable, and turns into liquid after burning at room temperature. When you light a scented candle, the wax melts which then vaporizes, combusts, and then produces light and heat.
Granulated wax, paraffin wax, and soy wax are some ingredients with which you can make a candle, although we use 100% soy wax as this has been confirmed to be a more healthier option.
What is Candle Wax Made From?
Beeswax was the major ingredient in the production of candles. In recent years, coconut, soy and petroleum have become the major content for making waxes. However, our scented candles are made of 100% soy wax.
What is Soy Wax?
Soybeans!! They are an extraction from the soybean vegetable which is a natural wax. Natural wax is the main content for making our candles. After the harvesting of beans, it is cleaned, cracked, peeled, and then rolled into flakes. These flakes undergo the hydrogenation process, resulting in the conversion of fatty acids from unsaturated to saturated. It raises the melting point of the oil, and the end product you get is a soy wax.
Speaking environmentally, soy wax is a better choice compared to paraffin wax.
What is a Soy wax blend?
Soy wax blend is a mixture of soy wax and other waxes to capitalize on the best of the waxes texture wise. Common waxes also include waxes like beeswax, palm wax, and coconut oil. In general, if the wax has more than 51% of soy, it is then a soy wax blend.
Why should you choose Soy Wax over Paraffin Wax?
Soy wax is totally environmentally friendly and made from renewable resources. Paraffin was is non- renewable and made from petroleum. Though all candles emit black smoke while burning, soy wax candles produce less soot and burn much cleaner.
The other benefit of using soy wax candle is that it emits a strong fragrance and does not need any chemical amplifiers like paraffin wax. Therefore, soy wax candles are great natural carrier wax for rich aromatic healthier candles.
