Soy wax is water soluble,biodegradable and so safe its components are edible. It’s also a domestically produced renewable resource.
Soy wax generally burns cleaner and longer than paraffin candle waxes, with reduced sooting, carbon build up and pollutants. Because it has a natural mottling effect, which is accentuated in darker colors, pastel colors are recommended for soy wax candles.
Soy wax looks, burns and cools differently than petroleum products.
