Why Soy Wax over Paraffin Wax?
Soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax due to having no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants. This means it's less likely to trigger allergies and also no petrol-carbon soot that can be seen on the jars of petroleum-based paraffin candles. Soy wax lasts longer and burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for up to 50% longer than a paraffin candle.
Paraffin is the leftover by-product from the petroleum refining process which can release the same harmful carcinogens into the atmosphere as your car produces when gasoline is burned. When a paraffin candle is burned, it produces toxic petrol-carbon soot, which can blacken walls, furniture and ceiling. Paraffin wax is used in more than 95% of candles on the market today, mainly because it is very inexpensive.
