BENEFITS OF SOY
Why we choose to use soy:
- Soy candles burn cleaner. Soy candles produce no carcinogens, toxins or pollutants, and are less likely to trigger allergies. Unlike paraffin candles, soy candles do not create petrol-carbon soot (the black residue you find on walls and other furnishings around burning paraffin candles).
- Soy candles last longer. Soy wax burns cooler, which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.
- Supporting USA farmers. Most soybeans used in soy wax, including the the wax we use here at New Braunfels Candle Co. is grown in the USA.
- Supporting a renewable resource. most candle waxes come from fossil fuels. Our soy wax comes from all-natural, certified kosher soybeans, a renewable resource.
- Easy clean. Soy wax spills clean up simply with soap and water while paraffin wax spills are very time consuming and extremely difficult to completely clean up if at all.
