When it comes to shopping for candles, the scent and aroma shouldn’t be the only factor to consider. Candles can be made out of a variety of different waxes, with each wax having different properties that affect the performance. Candles can be made from paraffin wax, soy wax, palm wax, and granulated wax just to name a few. We only use 100% ecosoya wax for all of our candles and wax melts. This is not only kinder to the planet is also has some great benefits for you.
Benefits of soy wax
Soy wax is a natural product that has these great properties:
Non-Toxic - meaning that soy wax is not poisonous.
Made of 100% soybean oil - meaning it’s Vegan
Clean-burning fuel source - meaning you get a brighter, cleaner flame
Soy wax is an excellent fragrance carrier that does not require chemical amplifiers - meaning you get a excellent scent throw with no chemicals!
Soy wax versus paraffin wax
Soy wax is made from environmentally friendly, renewable resources; whereas classic paraffin wax is made from petroleum and is non-renewable.
Soy wax burns longer and brighter than paraffin based candles.
Burning soy candles produces less soot than paraffin candles (that’s why your candle jars turn black with paraffin wax)
Paraffin based candles often also contain chemical amplifiers.
All our candles and melts at Six Seven Twenty are made from soy wax and by now you probably understand why! Since soy wax is a natural product, you may notice slight variations throughout the year. The wax may be very soft in its solid state, or as hard as a rock during other times. Sometimes the wax melts so clear and translucent, and other times it may melt and look a little cloudy. All of this is normal and expected when choosing a soy candle. If you notice any issues with your candle, please reach out to us so we can help you.
