Soy Candles are Environmentally Friendly

Are you looking for an environmentally friendly candle? Then soy candles are what you are looking for.

Soy candles are made from the oil of soybeans. After soybeans are harvested, the beans are cleaned, dehulled, and rolled in flakes. The oil is extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. This makes the oil a solid at room temperatures. The best part is that the bean husks can then be used as animal feed, so there is no waste.

Soy wax is preferred over the old-style paraffin wax candles because soy is a renewable, non-toxic product. Soy wax will not harm the environment, is sustainable, and renewable because soybean crops can be replanted every year. There are also no chemicals or harmful additives in the candles. Soy candles also burn more cleanly and slower than paraffin candles. These sustainable and carbon neutral candles clean up easily if accidentally knocked over and they are manufactured using a renewable resource.

Traditional wax candles are made with paraffin wax. They are not clean burning and will produce black soot. Paraffin wax is difficult to remove if it spills. If a soy candle spills, it can easily be wiped up leaving no unsightly residue making soy candles the right choice for anyone with pets or children.

The clean burning of soy candles is less aggravating to people with asthma or allergies, and the indoor air will maintain higher quality since there are no harmful chemicals contained in soy.

Soy candles are typically made using cotton or other all-natural wick sources. The all-natural ingredients, clean-burning, and environmentally friendly soy candles make them a natural choice for any or office.
