Unlike your petroleum-based paraffin candles, soy wax candles have no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's also less likely to trigger any allergies. All good, all the time.
A soy candle works well for holding onto the scent from essential oils, which are used to scent MALIA candles. Because they burn more slowly, the scent is softly released; there won't be a wave of strong overpowering scent. This creates a softer, more pleasant atmosphere. The natural wax also holds onto color well, which makes it look more attractive.
better for homes
Unlike paraffin wax, which gives off black soot when burned, soy wax burns cleaner. As paraffin wax is petroleum-based, burning it produces a black soot that can potentially stain surfaces inside your home. As a vegetable-based wax, natural wax does not give off any harmful by-products that might damage to your beautiful surroundings.
Longer burn time
Soy wax burns cooler. In reality this means that you are able to enjoy and use your soy wax candle for a significantly longer period of time. Our MALIA candles have the approximate burning time of 45 hours which is roughly 30% longer than a paraffin candle of the same size.
Since natural waxes are made of natural ingredients, they are biodegradable and thus also easier to clean. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, which is a nonrenewable source that contains carcinogenic substances, the very same kind your car burns when the engine is running. Soy, all the way, we say.
