1. Soy candles are naturally made
Soy candles are made naturally from soy wax, a processed form of soybean oil. WIA Candles uses soy wax is produced by crushing organic soybeans and hydrogenating the extracted oil, causing it to solidify at room temperature and form a wax-like consistency. As soy wax is made from soybean oil, the wax is a type of natural vegetable oil.
2. Soy candles are non-toxic with cleaner burn
Not only are soy wax candles a natural and renewable product, they emit far less soot than regular paraffin candles and release no toxins into the air. This soot is mostly noticeable in jar candles, but is known to stain furniture and walls in cases where candles are regularly burnt in the same area over time. Soy wax candles are a more environmentally-friendly choice that is healthier for people, and our pets at home.
3. Soy candles burn longer
Soy candles burn slower and up to 50% longer than regular candles, making them the more cost-effective option in the long-term. Soy candles are known for burning more evenly than regular candles also (when the wick is kept trimmed to a quarter of an inch) leaving little to no excess wax on the sides of the jar.
4. Soy candles have a longer lasting scent
As soy candles burn slower and longer than regular candles, their scent is gradually released over time, filling the room with a strong and lasting aroma. Soy candles can be fragranced using either natural essential oils or aroma compounds, or a combination of both depending on the particular scent. WIA Candles only uses natural Frangrance oils in all of our candle products.
