The world is changing, and people today are prioritising health, self-care and environmental awareness even in purchases as simple as a candle. That's why here at EVA Candles we only use natural soy wax in our products, and we're proud to provide the benefits of this clean, sustainable and environmentally friendly wax to you, our customers. In this blog we'll look at why soy wax has become the best and only choice for those looking for safe, natural and environmentally and ecologically responsible candles.
Studies have shown that paraffin wax candles produce a considerable amount of soot, compared to little to none from soy wax candles. Paraffin wax candles have also been shown to produce quantities of volatile chemicals and potential irritants such as formaldehyde and benzene, compared to the cleaner burn of soy wax candles. While all candles are considered safe, and are deemed to be generally not a risk to health, there is no question that soy wax candles are the better, cleaner and more responsible option, especially in households with children, pets, or people with sensitivities to pollutants or irritants. With a soy wax candle you can enjoy the cosy ambience safe and secure in the knowledge that your air quality is not being put at risk.
Soy wax candles are not only better for your environment, they are also better for the Earth. Unlike paraffin wax, which is an unsustainable chemical byproduct of fossil fuel processing, soy wax is made from sustainable soybean cultivation. Not only is it a renewable resource that reduces the demand for fossil fuels, but it is also biodegradable so your conscience can remain clear from purchase to use to disposal, throughout the lifetime of the product. And, of course, here at EVA Candles we take that one step further by providing candle refills. It's not often that a product can claim to be better quality than the alternatives as well as better for the quality of the environment. We call that a win-win.
Value For Money
Soy wax candles burn at a slower rate than traditional paraffin wax candles, and when scented they have better 'throw' of the scent, which is a measure of how effectively the fragrance flows from the candle into the room. This means that your soy wax candle will burn for longer and allow you to experience and enjoy more of its fabulous scent. All of that adds up to better value for money, with a candle that will last longer and provide more enjoyment than the alternatives. Value for money is a core principle of EVA Candles, with our brand philosophy of affordable luxury, and using natural soy wax in our candles is one of the ways in which we deliver on that promise.
