Soy Wax vs. Paraffin
Most candles are made from paraffin, but I opted to use soy wax in the STOKED line because I knew it would give me a better quality candle. Soy wax is also eco-friendly, renewable, sustainable and carbon neutral.
- Soy wax is made of soybeans, which is a renewable source. Paraffin is not renewable and has carcinogenic substances.
- Ever notice a candle with black soot on the jar or on the wax itself? That is usually a paraffin candle but with a soy candle you will get a better and cleaner burn.
- Your soy candle is going to last longer as it will burn slower than a paraffin candle.
- Soy waxes hold fragrance oils better, therefore, releasing the fragrance slower and cleaner resulting in a better hot or cold “scent throw”.
