Why choose a soy candle

Soy wax is a 100% natural wax derived from vegetable soybeans.  

Environmentally friendly – It’s harvested organically and any leftover flakes are used for animal feed. We love that! 

Soy wax lasts longer – It burns slower than paraffin wax. 

Soy wax burns cleaner – While all candles emit some black soot while burning, candles made from soy wax burns cleaner and results in less soot. It is also an excellent fragrance carrier that does not require chemical amplifiers.  The result is a well-balanced true to scent candle. 

In comparison to paraffin wax – which is the most common candle wax due to its cheap costs, it is processed from petroleum, coal, or oil shale. As such, soy wax releases less toxins. *Review shoutout* We had a customer review that our candle eliminated a headache that was frequently caused by a lit candle. *YAAAS! yay*

At Paperwillows, we ensure our candles are curated at the highest standard with our usual trusted materials. That said, you may notice slight variations. For example, you may notice that after a burn and cool down, your candle top does not cool off as smoothly as it was when unlit – this is all normal as soy wax is a natural product!
