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.
Beeswax is a natural wax coming from the hives of bees when extracting honey. Beeswax is a hard wax with a high melting point similar to paraffin at 99 degrees. Beeswax candles are famous for emitting negative ions in the air, thereby reducing the pollution inside the home.
While not 100% Coconut, this all natural wax has a white, creamy and smooth texture. The lower melting point allows the wax to form a quicker burn pool which allows for the best scent throw and aromatherapy properties.
Paraffin wax is a white soft wax derived from petroleum, coal or oil shale. It is solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 99 degrees. Paraffin is the wax we use for our Pillar candles and for hot envoironments.
