Each candle and melt crafted by Benevolent Earth is crafted with soy wax.It's important to note that not all soy candles are created equal and their environmental friendliness can depend on factors like the sourcing of the soybeans and the type of fragrances used - we use Golden Brand 464 soy wax. Soy wax candles and melts offer several benefits including:
Natural and Renewable: Soy wax is made from soybeans, a natural, renewable resource. Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, coal, or oil shale, soy wax is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
Cleaner Burning: Soy candles typically produce less soot and toxic chemicals than paraffin candles. This means a cleaner burn, which is better for both the environment and indoor air quality.
Longer Lasting: Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, so soy candles tend to burn slower and last longer. This makes them more cost-effective over time. The 4 oz candles burn 22 hours on average while the 10 oz candles burn 56 hours on average. Your burn time may vary.
Stronger Scent: Many people find that soy candles distribute scent more evenly and effectively. The lower melting point of soy wax allows for a larger pool of liquid wax around the wick, which helps to release the fragrance into the air more efficiently.
Safer: Since soy wax burns at a lower temperature, there's a decreased risk of serious burns from melted wax, making it a safer choice for households.
Non-Toxic: Soy wax candles do not emit toxins while burning, reducing the risk of health issues associated with the inhalation of toxic substances.
Easy to Clean: Spills of soy wax can be cleaned up easily with soap and water, unlike paraffin wax, which can be more difficult to remove.
Supports Agriculture: Using soy-based products supports farmers and the agricultural sector, as soybeans are a widely cultivated crop.
