The Differences Between Soy Wax And Paraffin Wax
Jan 16, 2019

Compared to paraffin candles, soy wax candles have many advantages.


Candles create a romantic atmosphere that exudes a pleasant aroma, but most candles are made from petroleum-derived paraffin, which emits black smoke and chemicals when ignited. In contrast, soy candles are cleaner and ignite longer.


Just as energy-saving bulbs are more expensive than regular bulbs, soy candles are more expensive than paraffin candles. However, in terms of long-term use, the lifespan of energy-saving bulbs is significantly longer, and the cost of use is cheaper than ordinary bulbs; the same is true for soy candles.


Soybean candles burn more slowly than regular candles, releasing a slower, gentler scented essential oil. Unlike aroma-scented paraffin candles, soy candles do not produce excessive aroma. Therefore, soy candles do not affect a person's sense of smell or taste.


Soy candles are made from soybeans and are a renewable resource. Some candles are made from sustainable growing soybeans. Soy candles can be biodegraded, and if the wax drops on clothes or furniture, it will be easier to clean than paraffin candles. Soy candles are still recyclable because soy candles are non-toxic and you can safely reuse glass bottles with candles.
