What Can Be Made By Soy Wax?
Feb 12, 2019

Soy wax is a new wax on the candle making scene, but has taken a solid hold. With the demand for "natural" candles growing, soy wax was developed in the early 1990s as an alternative to the petroleum-derived paraffin, and the natural—but expensive—beeswax. Like paraffin, soy wax comes in a variety of blends and melting points, though the most common soy waxes are container candle blends.

 

Many of  the soy waxes are made from 100% soybean oil. Others are blended with other vegetable oils (like coconut) and waxes (like palm and beeswax.) There are also a number of paraffin/soy blends out there that capitalize on the benefits of both waxes. Note that as long as the blend is at least 51% soy, it is called a soy wax blend.

 

As soy wax is kind of non-toxic and non-polluting material, people may use it to make some scented candles.Nowadays, more and more families would choose to get scented candles and craft candles at home , so the soy wax is getting more and more popular now.
