Why Soy

pollution.jpgHow it all starts......100% Soy wax.

When we started Bliss Candles we made a conscious decision NOT to use  cheaper waxes such as paraffin wax and therefore NOT further support the large oil companies and oil refineries. It is not common knowledge, but paraffin wax is actually a by-product of making petroleum fuels.

We looked at options such as Palm wax, but found its farming was often not renewable and could have had negative impacts on 3rd world communities.
We chose SOY WAX, grown from the ever popular soy bean. We support Farmers and source our wax from suppliers who guarantee that the soy wax is sustainably grown from this renewable resource. Our insistence on using only high grade 100% pure soy wax means the following for you;


Cooler Burn 

Our soy wax has a melting point of 43.9 degrees Celsius - meaning it is less likely to cause serious burns if accidently spilt. Compare that to paraffin waxes that have an average melting point range of between 55-70 degrees - Soy wax is a much safer option around the home.

Does Not Stain

Our soy wax is biodegradable and is easily washed off with some warm soapy water. We dont use any dies to colour our wax

Maximum Fragrance, amazing scent throw, longer lasting candles

The lower melt point means more fragrance can be gently released, given you the amazing scent through many seek and candles which just last longer.

Renewable and Sustainable Resource

Soy is a resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable to or faster than the rate of consumption. Our wax is free of pesticides and herbicides.

By using a soy candle you are choosing to support the environment whilst still creating the ambience you are accustomed to.
