Soy wax is a completely renewable vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. As the prices of Petroleum fluctuates and increases, and the supply starting to decrease, wax from soy beans is only limited by the ability to grow more soy beans. In addition to sustainability, a well-made soy candle will burn cleanly and slowly, much to the delight of your customers. While the performance and beauty of soy candles speak for themselves, soy wax is truly a marketer's dream. If you are making soy candles, you can market them as eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, sustainable, carbon neutral; the list goes on and on.
Paraffin wax is a refined, pure white wax derived from petroleum. Paraffin is the wax we use for some of our deeper colored waxes and candles that will be exposed to outside tempratures.
