WHAT ARE SOY CANDLES?
Our Candles are made from biodegradable vegetable wax which are soy and vegetable waxes with 100% cotton and paper wicks. Conscious Soy Candles are made from 100% all natural waxes, custom crafted with top-grade essential oils - hand-crafted and biodegradable. We guarantee our soy candles to be the safest, most fragrant eco-candle you'll find!
Soy wax is a new alternative to paraffin wax, made from soybeans, is renewable and cost effective. The soybean is one of the most versatile products used today. It has been a high protein source for millions of people for thousands of years. Soybean wax also seems to be the most promising natural wax available.
Natural waxes such as soy waxes are gaining in popularity but natural waxes are not new. Beeswax and tallow were used in colonial times to produce candles. Beeswax is a great natural alternative to paraffin, but unfortunately, to get the same results as a soy-based candle, it is cost prohibitive to use 100% beeswax in candles.
Soy candles last three times longer than petroleum-based candles, have an incredible scent throw with virtually no black soot.
Are soy candles really "soot free"?
No candle can be "soot free", but natural wax candles do have less soot.
The only way a candle can be soot free is if the flame is completely blue (ie: propane torch), meaning there is 100% combustion. To make a claim such as that would be misleading, and no wax can make that claim.
While soy wax its-self is all-natural and will not produce the thick black soot that you see on paraffin containers, it does produce soot - - a lighter, white soot! Anytime you have a flame and combustion you may have soot and anytime you add synthetics such as fragrance oils and dyes, you will have soot. Additionally, using too large of a wick or the incorrect wick can produce soot as well.
Soot can be a "white soot" that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Soy wax will produce little black soot---you will not see that thick black ring on the jars, nor will it do the black soot damage to homes, but it may produce white soot.
Are soy candles really "all natural"?
Soy candles don't put your health at risk. Soy candles do not release the toxins that paraffin candles emit. According to the state of California's Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986), there are at least seven toxins in paraffin candle wax, including benzene, an affirmed carcinogen. (Paraffin is created as a by-product of diesel fuel refining!)
Soy wax candles are crafted from soy beans. That part of your candle is absolutely all natural. Soy wax candles are not ?all-natural? when you add dyes and fragrance oils. Once you add those two elements, your candle is no longer natural as they both contain chemicals.
However, our Candles are made with wax from 100% natural soybeans and contain NO UNNECESSARY CHEMICAL ADDITIVES such as UV light reflectors and chemical wax stabilizers! Our soybean wax contains no paraffin and therefore no petroleum by-products! Our essential oils are non-diluted, full strength scents specifically formulated for use in soy candle wax!
More scent or fragrance oil does not mean more aroma. Just like there are different grades of fuel, there are also different grades of fragrance oils. Some contain more "fragrance" and some contain more "fillers".
The true secret to "scent throw" as it is called in the candle industry, is the burn quality. The scent is "thrown" from the wax pool that is created.
Candlemaking is an art and a science. A good candle manufacturer plans, designs, and tests their candles with their fragrances per each candle container and size to ensure good scent "throw" and candle performance. Each fragrance has different "throw" qualities, and just "triple scenting" does not mean more fragrance.
In fact too much fragrance can cause the candle wick to mushroom, smoke when burned, and could even cause the candle itself to combust causing shooting flames centimeters above the candle.
Our Candles are all designed and tested to burn properly, creating a safe, clean, and aromatic candle.
The fact is that our Soy Candles are a cleaner burning, healthier alternative to other scented candles. They burn longer than paraffin by almost double in time, and burn cooler than paraffin, creating an out of this world fragrance experience! Our soy wax is also very creamy, opaque and soft.
We think you will be pleased with both the appearance and the performance of our candles.
Soy wax has a lower melting point than regular paraffin wax and will release excess moisture it can not hold. You can leave it or wipe it out with a paper towel. It does not affect the burn quality, and will generally not show up again after your first burn. This typically only shows up in the jar candles.
Soy wax candles have a few unique characteristics to them that in no way effect the wonderful way they burn. As well as containing a lead-free wick, your Conscious Soy range candle will have a creamy, off-white color to it. In keeping with our desire to create as natural a candle as possible, we have chosen not to add artificial color to our wax.
There are a few essentail oils that are a bit darker and will add a pale yellow tint to that particular wax. You may notice some wet looking spots on your candle where the wax has adhered to the surface of the glass. They are caused by temperature variations and are simply due to the expansion and contraction of the wax. You will notice that they change as the candle is burned or when the room conditions change. They in no way affect the quality of the candle.
Soy candles are very sensitive to temperature and light so be aware of the location when placing or storing your soy candle. Place your candle away from sunlight, fluorescent lighting and sources of heat. When traveling with your candles, be careful as extremes in temperatures will melt or freeze our great candles.We know that once you see how wonderful soy candles are you'll never want to go back to paraffin again.
