The Dangers of Paraffin Wax

Most store-bought candles are made of paraffin, a by-product of making gasoline. Paraffin wax is the product of the oil purification process from petroleum, coal, or oil shale. When you remove the waxy substance from crude oil, you’re left with paraffin wax.

In 2001, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stated that the smoke from paraffin candles emits harmful levels of toxins. California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (Prop 65), lists numerous toxins in paraffin wax. 

Unfortunately, in addition to the use of paraffin, many store bought candles contain harmful dyes and fragrances, or wicks containing metals like zinc, tin or lead. For these reasons, the natural, soy wax alternatives the best way to go.

Soy Candles – the Natural Choice

Soy candles are vegan, made from soybeans rather than petroleum oil, help support soybean farmers, and are renewable and biodegradable. A study carried out by researchers at South Carolina State University found that soy candles do not release harmful pollutants, unlike paraffin. Soy candles are clean burning so they do not produce soot, which is as unhealthy and damaging to your environment.

Soy candles are also cost-effective, burning up to 50% longer than regular candles, meaning your favorite, clean scents last. 

You can still enjoy your favorite scents! Soy candles can contain delicious fragrances such as lemon, vanilla, banana nut bread, black amber, and coconut just to name a few. This makes them the perfect present for someone who loves candles but values their health above all things.
