When purchasing candles, the fragrance and perfume should not be the only factors to consider. Candles may be manufactured from several waxes, each with unique qualities that impact performance. Candles may be created from a variety of materials, including paraffin wax, soy wax, palm wax, and granulated wax. The Aussie Candle Supplies uses 100 percent soy wax in all of our candles, which is just one of the secrets that set our products unique from the competition!
So, What Exactly Is Soy Wax?
Soybeans are one of the most important crops farmed in the Australia, second only to maize. After the beans are gathered, they are washed, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. Soybean oil is recovered from the flakes, and the remaining flakes are utilized as animal feed.
Paraffin wax, one of the most common candle waxes used in candle making due to its low cost, is generated in an unusual method. Paraffin wax is a byproduct of the oil purification process from petroleum, coal, or oil shale. When the waxy component from crude oil is removed, you are left with paraffin wax.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Soy Wax?
Soy wax is manufactured from ecologically beneficial, renewable materials, whereas traditional paraffin wax is generated from petroleum and is non-renewable. Not only are there “green” benefits to using soy wax over other types of candle wax, but soy wax also burns slower than paraffin wax, resulting in a longer-lasting candle. When all candles generate some black soot while burning, candles manufactured from soy wax burn cleanly and produce less soot. Another benefit to using soy wax for candles is that it is a good aroma carrier that does not require chemical amplifiers. The end product is a well-balanced, true-to-scent candle.
Soy Wax Candles From The Aussie Candle Supplies
All of The Aussie Candle Supplies’ candles are created from soy wax, and you can probably guess why! Because soy wax is a natural substance, there may be some fluctuations throughout the year. The wax can be incredibly soft when solid or as hard as a rock at other times. Sometimes the wax melts clear and transparent, while other times it may melt and seem foggy. All of this is typical and should be expected when purchasing a soy candle. At The Aussie Candle Supplies, we take pleasure in the quality of our goods and do frequent tests to guarantee we are providing the highest quality to our consumers.
