Is there a difference between Soy wax and Paraffin wax?
Yes there is a huge difference. While paraffin wax candles are the most readily available candles on the market, they are not the best option for you, your family, and your pets. Notice soy blend candles also contain paraffin. 100% Soy wax candles on the other hand are a much better choice. Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum while 100% soy wax is biodegradable and is derived from vegetables. Soy is nontoxic and all natural. Paraffin emits carcinogens into the air we breathe. Paraffin wax is not sustainable because fossil fuels cannot be renewed. Soy wax is sustainable since we can grow more soybeans. Our soy wax is grown in the USA. By buying one of our candles you will help support farmers, workers, and strengthen the local economy. Now go ahead and check your jars, what do they say?.
