Positive Benefits to Coconut Soy Blended Wax
There are many positive benefits to natural coconut and soy wax. First it’s a vegan option. There are no animal products or byproducts in coconut soy wax. Coconut and soy are both renewable crops. We can replant and replace these crops with limited carbon impact.
A Natural Wax Makes for A Natural Aroma Release
The scent of this candle wax puts off a cleaner and more authentic aroma release. Coconut and soy wax is a colorless and odorless wax allowing for a harmonious match between natural aromas. Natural aromas include plant-based pure essential oils. We use pure essential oils and non-toxic natural aromas to replicate the authentic nature-inspired aroma of these luxury lotion candles. Coconut, and soy wax blend work well for holding the aroma and allowing for a clean lotion option. Coconut and soy wax gives you a 100% natural and fully biodegradable wax that is smokeless and soot-free resulting in a clean burning candle. Enjoy a candle that emits zero carcinogens into the air. So you can breathe a clean, toxic free aroma while enjoying a warm luxury lotion candle.
Eco-Friendly Coconut Wax Candles
Coconut wax derives from coconuts which is an environmentally friendly product. If you care about the planet these luxury lotion candles are for you. The manufacturing of coconut wax is not associated with deforestation. Farming coconuts is easy on the environment as there is no need for pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides. This makes for an ideal source from seed to wax with no negative impacts on your body or the world. Coconut wax is considered one of the healthiest types of waxes. These ingredients yield a better burn quality and better emitting of the aromas. And as for coloring, we don’t offer various color options either. We like the clean, rich benefits of natural candles and the purity associated with the wax.
Why it’s not safe to use Paraffin Wax
Paraffin is a petrochemical byproduct. To clarify, the oil refinery industry created the byproduct which is used to make the paraffin wax; think gasoline. To achieve the paraffin wax, the oil byproduct goes through a series of toxic manufacturing steps. The petrochemical byproduct is bleached by adding dioxin. To build its texture to the mix a carcinogen called acrolyn is added. The blend is mixed with animal-based stearic acid. This additive is a byproduct of the meatpacking slaughterhouses. This blend allows the wax to harden into a candle wax. Most candles marketed as soy wax or coconut wax are actually blended with paraffin. More on the dangers of paraffin candle wax from the BBC News.
Paraffin candle manufacturers usually add fragrance oil or a lesser quality essential oil to their candles. These fragrances can bring on health concerns while the candle is burning as a result of the toxins. A study by A. C. Revkin, studies the cancerous effects of candle soot. These adulterated candles should not be used as a skin moisturizer.
