What is soy wax?

Soy wax commences with soybeans from which the oil is separated. This oil is then purified to give pristine soybean oil which then goes through a process called hydrogenation turning it into a solid.

At Scensoya we use a soy wax called EcoSoya sourced from the United States.   It is biodegradable and free from pesticides and herbicides;  contains no genetically modified material; is manufactured using pure soy beans and contain no petroleum (paraffin waxes).  It is manufactured according to sustainability and renewable resource management; cleans up with hot water and soap eliminating the need for harsh solvents.

Although we would like to call the wax organic, by process of the change from liquid to wax state this rules out that classification, what we can say is that if you are looking for an eco-friendly wax then this wax is the best.

If you want a premium soy candle, with no beeswax or petroleum products hidden in it, then the only choice is one made with EcoSoya wax. EcoSoya wax is 100% vegetable, guaranteed!

Our wicks are all made with fine grade cotton fibres so they assist in the clean burn process.
