Soy wax was invented in 1992 by Michael Richards who was looking for a cheaper alternative to beeswax. He realised very soon that there was a growing demand for natural wax candles within the candle industry. He experimented with many different types of natural plant waxes such as a mixture of soy oil, coconut oil and palm oil, blended beeswax and soy wax as well as soy wax on its own. Soy wax is produced by hydrogenating soybean oil. Today there are many blends of vegetable waxes available.
Soy is a resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. It is produced without damaging the ecosystem and does not destroy precious rainforests or its inhabitants like palm oil does.
🕯️ Soy wax has a lower melting point therefore can burn up to twice as long as similar sized paraffin wax candles.
🕯️ Soy wax candles have an excellent scent throw when burning and even leave a pleasant aroma when cold.
