We use soy wax for making our candles.
The primary reason for this is because soy, derived from the soybean, is a natural source and 100% biodegradable.
Soy candles have a 'clean burn' which means they do not give off soot or contain any harmful substances.
Many traditional candles on the market are made from paraffin wax which is a by product of petroleum manufacturing. Paraffin wax, when burning emits soot and harmful substances such as benzine and toluene.
Soy wax has a lower melting point and is slower burning in comparison to paraffin wax. So you will find that your Sideroad Candle will burn much longer than its traditional wax counterpart.
