Soy wax is derived from vegetables, (soy beans), while it’s counter partner, paraffin wax is derived from petroleum (a refined a gasoline product). Soy wax is a natural, renewable resource. Soy candles hold onto the scent from essential oils, because they burn more slowly, the scent is gradually released. This creates a more pleasant and healthy environment for you and your pets.
Soy wax burns with zero petrol soot, creating petro soot free candles. Paraffin candles burn with petro-soot. Petro-soot from paraffin candles gives off the same soot as the exhaust of a diesel engine, and is considered just as dangerous as second hand smoke, causing problems from headaches to lung cancer. Paraffin fumes have been found to cause tumors in the kidneys and liver of lab animals.
