All our handmade candles are made from natural Soy Wax or a Soy and Coconut wax blend – they do not contain any paraffin waxes. Pure soy candle wax and with added coconut wax are a renewable and eco-friendly product and we believe that it provides you with the longest, safest, cleanest burn and also has excellent fragrance-holding qualities.
Why Soy Wax
There are so many reasons to love Soy Wax for candles. Plant-based, an annually renewable resource, carbon neutral and with wonderful scents and aromas. But read on, there's more reasons below.
Soy wax is a natural, eco-friendly product derived from soy beans. Soy beans are plants that are grown each year and soy wax is a renewable product derived from soy beans. It is a carbon neutral product.
Although paraffin wax candles are popular due to its cheap costs, it is nevertheless a product of the petroleum oil industry. When you remove the waxy substance from crude oil, you’re left with paraffin wax.
Soy wax has a lower melting temperature than paraffin wax and as a result, it burns more cleanly, evenly and for a longer period of time.
When blended with natural fragrance oils, soy wax has beautiful aromas.
Lastly but not least, as a non-toxic and natural material, working with soy wax on a daily basis does not cause any damage to our skin.
Source of Soy Wax
In recent years there has been an increasing demand for soy products which has lead to a boom in the growth of soy in South America. Some of this growth has been at the expense of deforestation. FelinFach, in partnership with Tree Nation, plants one tree for every product purchased on our website to support reforestation in many parts of the world. For this reason, we only use soy wax that has been grown and processed in the USA where there has not been any deforestation. We do not source any soy wax from South America.
