Candelinas, have been created with love and the best ingredients. The wax melts you hold in your hands are made of soy or canola wax and aromatic oils.
This was no accident, as soy and vegetable waxes have many advantages over other materials used to create candles.
Safety, sustainability and good materials are of great importance in the creation of our Wax Melts. The differences between soy and paraffin wax are very big.
There are 7 reasons to prefer Soy Wax Melts:
1. Soy is a natural material
Soy wax melts are made from soybeans. It is an ingredient that is cultivated and can be found in nature.
It started to be used to create candles around the 90s. The reason is that alternative materials for creating candles began to be sought to replace paraffin. Paraffin comes from the well-known petroleum.
2. Soy candles do not emit petroleum soot
If you have noticed, when you burn a candle for a long time, it emits soot. Paraffin candles, due to oil, produce a large amount and cause pollution.
You can tell by the stains that the black paraffin soot creates on the walls, furniture, carpets and curtains.
3. Soy wax is non-toxic
Soy waxes are non-toxic as they are derived from vegetable oils. This makes them healthier for people, pets and the environment.
On the contrary, according to research, paraffin candles release toxins and chemicals, which are even considered carcinogenic.
In addition, some of these candles may even contain lead in the wick.
4. This is a sustainable ingredient
Sustainability is very important for our planet. As we know, oil reserves are not enough, so paraffin is not considered a viable material.
In addition, its construction causes pollution. Growing soybeans, on the other hand, is a viable option. Also, because it is a natural material, it is environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
5. Soy wax takes longer to burn
Don't be fooled by the price of soy compared to paraffin. Soy wax is value for money, as it burns longer and more evenly. Its burning time can be even 50% longer than that of paraffin.
6. Soy wax has a stronger scent
Due to the lack of soot and toxins released into the atmosphere, soy candles have a stronger and more pleasant aroma.
On the other hand, the chemicals contained in a paraffin candle can affect its aroma when burning and weaken it. In addition, they can mask the odors from cooking.
7. You can clean it very easily
If soy wax falls somewhere, it is very easy to clean . If a garment or tablecloth becomes soiled, it only takes a little soap and water to remove, while paraffin leaves stains.
