So what does the owner and CEO of ELSOLALUNA reveal about soy candles? The candle label says,
“We live in a world where we should pay much closer attention to what our bodies are exposed to both internally and externally; and that’s why for my candles I choose soy wax. Soy wax is derived from soybeans; (and can contain other non-soy materials). It is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature.
After they are harvested, the soybeans are cleaned, cracked, dehulled, and rolled into flakes. Soy wax contains nothing artificial; which makes it a better alternative to paraffin wax. [Also paraffin] is actually petroleum based and is created using crude oil (fossil fuel). Which, if it is of low purity, contains harmful compounds and releases them during combustion.
By lighting a paraffin candle, you run the risk of filling the air with not just a pleasant aroma but with toxic substances, benzene, and toluene. Alternately soy wax is non-toxic making it better both for the environment and your health!”
