Why choose Soy Wax?
Updated: Jun 12, 2020
Ivy Light prides itself on using soy wax. Soy wax is derived from the soybean, it is a hydrogenated vegetable oil which turns into a solid at room temperature. It contains nothing artificial, making each candle vegan, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. This importantly makes it better for your health and well-being and the environment. As soy wax candles are carbon neutral, they burn clean reducing the amount of smoke, soot and indoor air pollution (saving your walls and upholstery from being ruined by the build up of emission stains) compared to alternative brands and candles containing paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum and other harmful products causing them to become toxic when burned. The benefits of soy wax makes them a safer alternative for you to burn.
Soy wax burns much cooler than paraffin wax, so from a safety point of view it is a much better choice as risks of burns and injuries are reduced, should you accidentally spill any wax on your skin. As soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin the life of your candle is increased, giving you more time to enjoy your candle. One thing to note, it's important to keep your unlit candle out of direct sunlight as it can cause your candle to sweat due to the low melting point.
Soy wax fragrances are much stronger and most importantly they last throughout the life of the candle. As the burn is clean, all you will be able to smell is the beautiful fragrance as it is not masked by any unpleasant chemical scents.
Knowing this, you can sit back and enjoy breathing in the beautiful fragrance filling your home.
