So many people ask me why soy candles are better than paraffin! This is something I could go on about all day if you let me, but I will try to make it as short and sweet as I can for you!
* Derived from petroleum, which is a limited resource.
* Burning Paraffin candles contributes to indoor air contamination by emitting petro-chemicals causing soot deposits and carcinogenic particulate matter.
*Paraffin wax is really hard to deal with or remove from anything.
*This wax contains petroleum by-products and additives that inhibit biodegradability.
*Purchasing paraffin products not only supports our dependence on this crude oil but also supports an industry riddled with environmental faux pas.
*Derived from a plant, soybeans are a renewable resource.
*Soy wax burns much cleaner and purer as it is all natural, non-toxic, and non-hazardous.
*This wax is biodegradable leading to reduced landfills.
*Soy wax residue can be washed away with warm water and soap. *Purchasing soy products supports the soy farmers of America, which stimulates our economy and lessens dependence on international resources.
So in conclusion, the pros of soy wax far out- weigh the cons of paraffin wax.
