Soy wax is made from pure soybeans and carefully selected botanical oils. Soy wax is an entirely vegetable based wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature.

Soy wax offers a clean-burning alternative to paraffin that is environmentally sound and healthy for your home.

There are a host of reasons to choose soy and this is why!
