Why Choose Soy Wax?

We all want to do our part to become healthier individuals, preserve our environment, and decrease our dependence on foreign oil. Simply choosing to purchase Soytopia soy candles instead of paraffin candles helps to accomplish each of these goals.

From a health standpoint, soy candles produce 90% less soot than those made from paraffin. And unlike paraffin candles, no dangerous chemicals are emitted while burning. Did you know that the paraffin candles sold in most retail stores may release as many as 20 chemicals that the EPA recognizes as hazardous, cancer-causing, or toxic to our nervous and reproductive systems?

Go green ! Soy wax is also non-toxic, biodegradable, and made from a completely renewable natural resource—soy beans! The soy beans from which the wax is made is grown and harvested by the American farmer. Paraffin wax, on the other hand, is made from the leftover foreign foil from which diesel fuel and gasoline are made. Of course, you wouldn’t run a diesel engine in your home. Why burn a candle in your home that emits the same toxins?
