Why we use a superior natural wax for our Pet-friendly candles


There are many reasons why having a soy wax blend makes the best candles: it’s eco-friendly, clean-burning, longer-lasting and provides a better fragrance throw than other types of wax. Here are some of the reasons why:


Soy wax is a brilliant clean burner. It does not produce toxins such as petrol-carbon soot (the black residue you’ve seen before on walls, and home furnishings) which contain carcinogens: Toluene and Benzene. These carcinogens can aggravate asthma and irritate the respiratory tract of humans, and our beloved pets who share the same air in our homes.

Soy wax is non-toxic and burns clean, it is safe for pets and people who suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies.

Due to the petroleum base of paraffin wax, it tends to emit a chemical-smelling fragrance.

Because soy wax comes from a natural source, it emits a more pure, true expression of the same fragrance than paraffin wax.


Soy wax burns up to 50% longer than paraffin wax because soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin wax, which means it melts at a cooler temperature and doesn’t burn as fast.


Soy wax is a hydrogenated form of soybean oil that is extracted from soybean plants, a natural, ‎renewable and ‪‎sustainable resource. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same about Paraffin wax – it is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil, hence a fossil fuel, and a  non-renewal resource.

As Soy wax is ‪‎biodegradable, it can be easily disposed of and easily cleaned with basic soap and water if a candle is accidentally spilled. Paraffin wax is not biodegradable or water-soluble which makes cleaning up and disposing of a little more difficult.
