The Benefits of Coconut Soy Wax Candles

Our candles are made exclusively from coconut soy wax, which offers several important advantages.

  • Coconut Soy wax is derived from vegetable soybeans combined with coconut oil, while paraffin wax is derived from petroleum. As such, coconut soy wax is the preferred option for anyone who prefers a natural, renewable, and environmentally friendly option.
  • Coconut soy wax is also biodegradable and can be cleaned up with soap and water. The container itself can be repurposed as home decor or recycled.
  • Compared with paraffin wax, soy has a lower melting point. That means coconut soy wax candles burn longer. The average burn time for our candles is 50-60 hours.
  • CoconutSoy wax is clean burning, too, putting off zero petro soot. This isn’t true of paraffin candles, which burn with significant petro-soot.
