Soy candles are candles that are made from soy wax or soya wax, a vegetable wax made from the oil of the soybean plant. In contrast to some other candle waxes, soy wax is natural, renewable and biodegradable. It is an eco-friendly candle wax.
At FelinFach, all our candles are made with soy wax, no exceptions. Our soy candles have no added colourants, dyes or other additives and are either white or cream in colour, the natural colour of soy wax. We do not use paraffin wax, a derivative of the petroleum industry.
10 Reasons to Love Soy Wax Candles
Soy wax is derived from soybean plants that are grown each year.
Our soy candles are natural, renewable and biodegradable.
Although paraffin wax candles are popular due to its lower 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.
Soy candles burn with less soot than equivalent paraffin wax candles.
When blended with natural fragrance oils, soy candles have beautiful aromas.
Our soy candles have no added colourants or dyes and are either white or cream in colour, the natural colour of soy wax.
During the production of soy wax, there is no testing on animals.
We use wooden wicks in almost all our soy candles producing that relaxing wood wick crackle.
Our soy candles come in various sizes from the 18cl Candles in a Tin to the luxurious 3-wick candles - all made with soy wax.
