Absolutely! We are proud of the fact that we only source the best natural soy wax from North America. While it’s more expensive that other soy wax suppliers in China, we are confident that we are getting the 100% natural soy wax without any chemical additives or stabilisers. In fact our pure soy wax is so natural, it is considered food-grade!
Soy wax is considered a vegetable wax that is derived from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and then rolled into flakes. The oil is extracted from the flakes and then hydrogenated. This process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated.
As a result of this process, it dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it solid at room temperature. The remaining soy bean husks are commonly used in the animal feed industry. The USA and Canada grows the vast majority of the world’s soy beans.
In terms of the quality of the North American sourced soy bean wax, we have certification that our soy wax does not to contain any Genetically Modified Materials (GMM).
There any numerous reasons to use soy wax, even apart from the fact that it’s a natural product. First of all, soy wax is a completely renewable resource and will not run out - unlike paraffin wax which is a by-product of petroleum. In addition to sustainability, a well-made soy candle will burn cleanly and slowly, much to the delight of your customs. In fact, soy candles will burn approximately 40 – 50% longer than a comparable candle using paraffin wax – and will not add CO2 to the environment. Additionally soy wax is water soluble and easy to clean if you spill the wax.
We use American made wicks that are specific for soy candles. They are made blend of cotton and paper wicks that are braided together to provide a clean and consistent burn. When burning the wick will open into a bell shape, ensuring that the hottest part of the flame is in the middle of the wick, allowing it to draw out the scented soy wax. The braided wick also has a self-trimming feature to ensure it burns cleanly and safely.
