Soy Wax is a relatively new and innovative candle wax made from 100% soybeans. Soybeans are a renewable and sustainable resource and are completely natural and biodegradable.
The Soy wax used at the Candle Cavern is non toxic and non carcinogenic. It contains no pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified material. An excellent choice for those who wish to burn environmentally friendly candles.
Soy wax promotes the growth and care of the environment by utilising plants that are a renewable resource and therefore contributes to the reductions of our dependency on crude oil.
Soy Wax burns cooler than paraffin wax and increases the candle life by burning for longer.
Soy Wax can be cleaned from surfaces by hot soap and water however it is wax and you should avoid pouring it down a drain and dispose of it carefully.
With regard to the candles made here, they can sometimes develop a 'frosting' on its surface giving it a rustic effect. This is completely harmless and just a natural characteristic of soy wax. It certainly gives a candle more charm. No additives are used with our candles especially to inhibit any natural reaction or oxidising.
