Benefits of Soy Wax

Since soy wax is still relatively new in the candle industry, we would like to share some information that will help you understand the benefit of soy wax and allow you to get the most enjoyment from your candle.

  • Soy wax is an all natural product and a renewable resource made from American grown soybeans which helps the American farmer and the United States economy.

  • Soy wax burns cleaner since it is a natural oil product versus the standard paraffin wax that is a petroleum byproduct which has been proven to emit toxins into the environment. Some people have experienced headaches or other side effects from burning paraffin candles. Even our local professional painter recommends burning soy wax candles over other waxes due to the clean burning effect that they have. Soy candles are a much more natural and environmentally friendly product causing few allergy problems. Some companies will use a soy wax blend with paraffin or other petroleum products to cheapen the input costs of the candle. Heartland candles are 100% soy wax....100% natural.

  • Soy wax candles burn cooler which produces a longer burn time. This is both better for the environment and creates a longer burn time to enjoy your candle.

  • Soy wax cleans up easily with soap and water. Soy wax is 100% biodegradable.

  • Not all fragrance oils are created equally. Heartland candles use the finest grade fragrance oils along with a higher percentage to help make your candle experience a most pleasant one. We mix our oil throughout the entire candle so there is never a weakness to our candles. Some companies will only include fragrance in the top portion of the candle to cut down their cost of production.
