3 Reasons We Use Soy-Coconut Wax In Our Candles

Do you want to know the reasons we've decided to use soy-coconut wax? Click here to learn more!

Why soy-coconut wax? When it comes to candle making, there are a plethora of wax types you can use. Some are hard, some soft, some are synthetic and some are more natural. We knew what our criteria were when it came to our candles, so we decided on a soy-coconut blend. Keep reading to learn the three reasons why!

Our criteria

First, let's talk about our criteria. We knew exactly what kind of experience we wanted to bring to our customers:

  • Clean burning
  • Renewable
  • Locally made
  • Great scent throw

Why We Use A Soy-coconut wax Blend

After scouring the web and looking at all of our options, here's why we chose soy-coconut wax:

  • Soy is a renewable and biodegradable option, unlike paraffin wax
  • 100% carcinogen-free
  • It has a lower melting point which helps your candle burn slower, longer, and with less soot
  • While soy wax has a great hot throw, the coconut amps it up even more

1. A Sustainable Choice

Soy-coconut wax is a renewable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly option. It's made from the soybean plant and coconut oil, which can both be grown organically and sustainably. This means that you'll never have to worry about how much pollution your candles are causing in the environment.

Soy wax also has some great benefits for people with allergies (which is why we love it so much!). Soy wax is completely non-toxic and non-allergenic - meaning that if you're allergic to beeswax or paraffin, this may be an excellent alternative for you!

2. Soy-coconut wax is non-toxic

Because the wax is made from soy and coconut, it is considered nontoxic. Do we recommend taking a bite out of your candles? No. But you can rest knowing they are burning much cleaner than alternatives like paraffin and don't emit any carcinogens into the air!

With this type of wax being so safe for us, we can feel confident that when we're using products made with it (like candles or soaps), then there's no harm coming from them either!

3. Scent throw

While clean-burning candles sound great, what about the smell? Soy-coconut wax is a great carrier for scent! Soy waxes can be good, but the oils from the coconut wax help carry the scent even more. Since it is a clean-burning wax, you won't be left with a headache after having your candles lit for an hour either!
