Why Soy Wax?
Here are some of the main reasons we love using Soy wax... We believe in keeping our earth safe, getting your money's worth and keeping life simple as!
1. ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY
We choose soy wax because it's made from environmentally friendly, biodegradable and sustainable resources in comparison to paraffin wax which is made from petroleum and is non-renewable.
2. SLOWER BURN = LONGER LASTING CANDLE
Soy wax burns slower than paraffin wax which means your candle lasts longer. Soy candles burn cleaner and emits minimal soot when compared to paraffin wax candles. They are also an excellent fragrance carrier and do not require any chemical amplifiers which means you get a well-balanced scented candle.
3. LONGER BURN
With a lower melting point it means soy wax burns up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles.
4. EASY TO CLEAN
Last but definitely not least, soy wax spills are much easier to get out of fabrics or table cloths as it is biodegradable, with a simple wipe and its gone. This is a tried and tested benefit - at Candle Creator NZ we've had many spills which we found very easy to clean.
CHARACTERISTICS OF SOY WAX
We've listed some characteristics of soy wax which indicates that your candle has been made with 100% natural soy wax.
Soy candles can appear to look "frosty" around the edges or on top during various temperature changes ie. weather, etc. Sometimes referred to as "blooming", the frosting is actually the soy wax or vegetable oil's crystalisation back to its natural state. This effect does not change the quality of your candle / wax melt / snapbar but is rather a unique process specific to pure soy wax.
