One question that we are often asked is why do you use soy wax when making your candles and why is it better. Soy wax may be a more expensive alternative to paraffin wax but in this instance the benefits found definitely justify the costs.
If we want to answer the question really simply the answer is a straight forward one. Soy wax is better. It creates a better candle burning experience, its more environmentally friendly than the alternatives and it is better for your home and most importantly your families health.
Soy wax was only discovered in the 1990's making it a pretty new product and a much more cost effective option than other paraffin alternatives. As the name suggests it's made from soy beans, it's completely renewable, natural and environmentally friendly. So 100% amazing in our eyes.
One of the most important things for us when we started this journey here on Sydney's Northern Beaches was to ensure that we made a product that we could be proud of, was natural and was definitely not harmful. our health and the health of the planet is important. The wax that we use is from American grown soy beans. It is natural, clean burning, toxin free, environmentally friendly and has NOT been test on Animals.
So the main reasons for choosing soy wax ahead of parrafin wax in our opinion are:
Paraffin wax seems a more cost effective alternative but in the grand scheme of things and put quite simply soy is better.
