Soy wax is a plant-based wax produced from soybeans (Glycine max). It is a popular alternative to traditional paraffin wax as it is more environmentally friendly and comes from a renewable source.
During the production of soy wax, soybeans are finely ground, and then the oil is extracted from it under the influence of heat. The oil is cooled and solidified to create soy wax. The wax can then be molded into candles, wax care products, or other similar applications.
One of the main advantages of soy wax is that it comes from a natural and renewable source. Wax produced from soybeans is more environmentally friendly because it is biodegradable, contains no harmful substances and emits less carbon dioxide into the air than paraffin wax.
In addition, the advantage of soy wax is that it has a longer burning time than paraffin wax. This means that the soy wax candles burn longer, so you can enjoy the candlelight and scent for a longer time.
Soy wax is also flexible, which means it absorbs fragrances well and can be easily mixed with other natural materials such as essential oils. This makes it possible to create different scented candles and wax products.
