Scent and perfume aren’t the only things to consider when looking for candles. Various waxes can be used to make candles, and each polish has unique qualities that affect how the candle performs. Many different types of wax can be used to make candles, including paraffin, soy, palm, and granule wax. The secret makes these candles unique from the rest: We utilise only soy wax in all of our products!
What exactly is soy wax?
Naturally generated from soybeans, soy wax candles have no additives or preservatives. Soybeans are the second-largest crop in Australia, after maise. Soybeans are grown successfully in the Midwest of the United States, where most of the world’s supply is produced. Ohio ranks as the nation’s sixth-largest producer of soybeans. Clean, de-hulled and flattened into flakes are the next steps after harvesting. Flake soy is ground into oil, separated from the rest, which is then fed to animals as food.
Although paraffin wax is a popular candle wax due to its low cost, its origins are somewhat different. The oil purification procedure from petroleum, coals, or oil shale yields paraffin wax as a byproduct. Paraffin wax is leftover after the waxy ingredient in crude oil is removed.
Soy wax has several advantages.
Unlike traditional paraffin wax, soy wax is derived from renewable, environmentally favourable sources from fossil fuels and cannot be replenished. Because soy wax burns more slowly than paraffin wax, it gives you a longer-lasting candle in addition to its environmental benefits. To put it another way, soy candles burn cleanly and produce a smaller amount of black soot than traditional candles. It is also a great idea to use soy wax candles because it is an excellent carrier of scents without chemicals. A well-balanced, true to fragrance candle is the outcome.
Candles made from soy wax
Soy wax is the primary ingredient in all of The Candle Studio’s candles, and you can see why today! When it comes to soy wax, there may be some seasonal differences. The wax can be pretty pliable in its stable condition, but it can also be rock hard at other times. Waxes can sometimes be crystal clear and translucent, but they can sometimes be murky when melting. Soy candles come in various scents and sizes. Every product at The Candles Studio undergoes frequent testing to guarantee that our clients receive the most excellent quality possible.
Soy Candles Have a Lot of Advantages
Soybeans are a renewable, natural resource that may be grown in many parts of the world. Contrast this with conventional petroleum-based paraffin candles. Our bodies are poisoned by the carcinogenic chemicals found in petroleum, a nonrenewable resource. With natural soy wax, you may enjoy a candle without worrying about being exposed to harmful chemicals.
A More Efficient Burn
Soy candles are much less likely to set off allergies because they contain no chemicals, carcinogens, or pollution. Soy wax is better for our health and the environment than traditional wax. This non-polluting material is good for the environment.
Soy wax melts at low temperatures, making it easier to work with. Thus, soy candles burn more slowly and efficiently than paraffin candles because of the lower heat generated during the combustion process. You’ll be able to enjoy scents for very much longer with a long-lasting candle.
Smells More Powerful
The aroma of a candle comes from the wax pool surrounding the wick. A wider pool all around wick is formed due to the lower melting temperature of soy candles than paraffin, which results in an even more potent scent.
Water-soluble and biodegradable.
Soy wax is inherently biodegradable because it is made from soybeans, a vegetable. This makes it easy to clean spills that happen by accident.
