Why Soy Wax? - ScentWick Candles

Why Soy Wax?

Soy is a renewable source of wax. It comes from soybeans. Soybeans are harvested, cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. In the next step, soybeans go through the hydrogenation process. This process alters the oil's melting point, which causes the oil to become solid at room temperature. 

The soy wax we use at ScentWick Candles is grown right here in the United States. 


What are the benefits?

  • eco friendly
  • non-toxic
  • renewable
  • sustainable
  • American grown
  • carbon-neutral

Our goal is to create all-natural candles, therefore using soy wax for our candles was a no-brainer. On top of the above benefits, our soy wax candles will melt clean and slow as opposed to paraffin wax that contains chemicals and toxins.
