Soy vs Paraffin


Why is Soy wax  better than paraffin wax?

  1. Soy burns longer - on average 7-8 hours per ounce of soy

  2. Soy is sustainable. Unlike paraffin, which is derived from oil, soy is a renewable resource made from the oil of soybeans. The soy used today was likely in the ground less than one year ago and that same field could be growing more soy for the future.

  3. Soy is better for your health. Soy burns cleaner and produces as much as 90 percent less soot than paraffin, reducing the amount of indoor air pollution produced.

  4. Soy won't ruin your walls: The emissions from paraffin candles build up on walls, staining the paint in your home. They also build up in upholstery fabrics and in carpets, affecting the air quality in your home. 

  5. Soy doesn't produce as much heat.

  6. Spilled soy is easier to clean up: Soy is biodegradable so if it spills on your tablecloth or clothing just clean with soap and water. (it's a lot easier to clean than paraffin!)

  7. Soy helps U.S. farmers: The United States produces 85-90% of soy crops in the world, so when you buy soy products, you're supporting American farmers!
