Soy v. Paraffin: Benefits of using soy wax over paraffin


When it comes to buying candles, many people are unaware of the environmental impact that their choices can have. Most candles are made from paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource. In contrast, soy wax candles are made from soybeans, which are a not only a renewable resource they are grown here in the United States, therefore supporting American farmers. Here at Bode+Ev, we believe that using soy wax candles is not only better for the environment, but it's also a healthier choice for you and your family.

Firstly, soy wax candles burn cleaner than paraffin wax candles. This is because soy wax is a vegetable-based wax, which means that it doesn't contain any of the harmful chemicals that paraffin wax does. When you burn a paraffin wax candle, it releases toxins and carcinogens into the air, which can be harmful to your health. Soy wax, on the other hand, is non-toxic and emits significantly fewer pollutants. This makes soy wax candles a safer choice for people with allergies or respiratory problems.

Secondly, soy wax candles are more sustainable than paraffin wax candles. As we mentioned earlier, soy wax is made from soybeans, which are a renewable resource. In contrast, paraffin wax is made from petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource. When you choose soy wax candles, you are supporting sustainable agriculture and reducing your carbon footprint.

At Bode+Ev, we take our commitment to sustainability seriously. We use 100% recycled glass vessels for our candles, which reduces waste and minimizes our impact on the environment. Additionally, we offer carbon neutral shipping on all online orders and a candle refill service, which allows customers to reuse their candle vessels rather than throwing them away. By reducing waste, we can help to protect the planet for future generations.

In conclusion, choosing soy wax candles over paraffin wax candles is not only better for the environment, but it's also a healthier choice for you and your family. Soy wax candles burn cleaner, emit fewer pollutants, and are made from a renewable resource. When you purchase soy wax candles from Bode+Ev, you can feel good knowing that you are supporting sustainable practices and making a positive impact on the planet.
