ABOUT SOY WAX

How is soy wax made?

After soy beans are harvested, they're cleaned, cracked, de-hulled & rolled into flakes.  The oil is extracted from the flakes & hydrogenated.  This process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated & changes the melting point of the oil making it solid at room temperature. 
 
What happens to the leftover bean husks?  They are commonly used as animal feed. (Talk about a low waste & efficient process!)  

 

What are the benefits of choosing soy candles over paraffin candles?

  • Soy wax is easy to clean up if there’s a spill. (Warm water & soap will do just fine!)
  • Soy wax is sustainable.  Soybeans are grown right here in the USA.
  • Soy wax is biodegradable which makes soy candles an eco-friendly alternative to paraffin candles.  Eco-friendly products are cool!
