Advantages of Soy Candles
Soy wax is all-natural - Soy wax is a favorite of environmentally conscious people because it is not made from petroleum, like paraffin candles. Many people are searching for green products to replace more traditional ones that are unfriendly towards the environment. By choosing soy candles you are choosing to support the environment.
Soy candles last longer - They can last up to 30% longer than paraffin candles. Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature avoiding wax burns.
Wax spills are easy to clean - It's very difficult to remove paraffin wax from furniture or textiles. Soy wax spills can easily be cleaned up with hot soapy water. Soy wax also does not stain, so you don’t have to worry about clothing, furniture or other items.
Soy candles produce less soot - Soot should be avoided because it is very unhealthy and can eventually coat furniture and walls. Soy candles produce about 90% less soot as compared to paraffin candles.
Scented soy candles distribute more scent throw - The use of soybean oil lowers the melting point of the candle, which translates into cooler burning candles, faster scent dispersion and a purer scent throw. This is ideal for “Scenterior” decorating. The lower melting point of soy wax results in a larger size of the liquid wax pool around the candle wick. It is from this liquid wax pool that the essential oils evaporate into the atmosphere.
Renewable and Sustainable – Soy is a resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. Soy is continually producible without damaging the ecosystem.
Patriotic – The soy wax we use is made using soy beans from U.S. farms only! When you buy a candle from Tranquility Soy Candles you enhance the strength of the US agriculture sector and support the American Farmer.
