SOY WAX BENEFITS

Soy wax lasts three times longer than petroleum-based wax, it has incredible scent throw, virtually no black soot (which means no black walls!) and appear to have little effect on allergies. Supports American farmers by using the soybean. Soybeans are a renewable and sustainable resource grown right here in the USA! Due to the fact that they are non-toxic, soy wax candles are non-irritable for people with breathing problems.

Why Buy Soy Tarts? New studies show that paraffin wax can produce an unhealthy environment. For example, it can blacken your containers, your walls, your duct work, and even your skin. This is caused by the carbons that are in the petroleum. With soy tarts you can breathe easier knowing that you will have a cleaner, healthier burn.

Benefits of Soy Wax: * Produces no harmful toxins or carcinogens * Produces 90% less soot * Wax made from natural, renewable sources such as soy bean oil and other plant and vegetable materials * Biodegradable so it cleans up with hot, soapy water * Cost competitive with paraffin candles

Disadvantages of Paraffin: * Paraffin contains 11 documented toxins, 2 are carcinogenic * Paraffin produces problematic soot emissions * Made from petroleum * Many paraffin candles contain metal in their wicks - some being lead * The Petro-Soot that is produced from burning petroleum-based candles can be as harmful as second hand smoke * Paraffin is not biodegradable * Burns hotter and faster * The American Lung Association has warned consumers of unhealthy indoor air quality from burning candles containing petroleum by products

Soy Tarts are clean burning with no sooty residue and have a low melting point, which means they burn cooler. This allows their longer lasting, wonderful aromas to quickly scent the air. Made from a renewable source, using no petroleum-based paraffin, the tarts are available in many wonderful scents.
