When it comes to shopping for candles, the fragrance shouldn't be the only thing you consider - candles can be made from many different waxes. Different waxes have different benefits, and properties that affect their performance. Here at the Ranmore Candle Co. we use 100% soy wax in all of our luxury scented candles.
Are soy wax candles bad for you?
Soy Wax is the cleaner and healthier alternative to old fashioned parrafin wax. Although all candles emit some soot while burning, candles made from soy wax burn cleaner and produce less soot.
So, are soy wax candles better for you?
We only use soy wax from environmentally friendly and sustainable sources. There are many other advantages to soy wax candles. Soy wax is an excellent fragrance carrier, resulting in a well-balanced true to scent candle. Another benefit of soy wax is it burns slower than paraffin wax, so your candle lasts longer.
Are Yankee Candles soy?
Not quite. Yankee Candle produces a blended version of vegatable waxes. Our candles are 100% soy, which has a much cleaner burn and is non-toxic.
I see... but what is soy wax?
Soy wax is a 100% natural wax derived from the soyabean. Unlike Parrafin wax, which is one of the most popular candle waxes due to it's cheap costs.
