health consciousness, environmental sustainability and our customers budget was top of mind when we decided to create our stone essentials candles. with so many wax options available, find out below why we chose pour our candles with soy wax instead of paraffin.
1. where does soy wax come from?
soy wax is a 100% natural wax which comes from the vegetable soybeans. after being harvested, soybeans are cleaned, cracked and de-hulled and rolled into flakes.
2. where does paraffin come from?
paraffin wax is popular in candle manufacturing due to its low cost. paraffin wax is a byproduct of the oil purification process from petroleum.
3. why choose soy wax over paraffin wax?
soy wax is an environmentally friendly and renewable recourse as opposed to paraffin wax, a petroleum based non-renewable product. soy wax burns at a slower rate than paraffin wax, which means you’ll be able to enjoy your candle longer. soy wax also acts as a great scent distributor, evenly carrying fragrance throughout a space without any chemical amplifiers.
4. bottom line
soy wax candles offer a true to scent candle that offers many “green” benefits without costing our customers an arm and a leg.
