What is the difference between paraffin and soy wax?


At the dinner table: the toxic chemicals released by the paraffin candles can overwhelm the aroma of the food. Unscented soy candles burn longer and do not interfere with the smell or taste of the food you enjoy.
From the sustainability of energy: unlike paraffin extracted from non-renewable oil, soybean is a renewable resource. From the perspective of energy use, if possible, choose brands that use sustainablely grown soy candles, such as Linna.
Air quality: All natural soy candles are more complete than paraffin, no black smoke and no residue. This gives your home a better overall air quality.

Cleanliness: Soy wax is biodegradable, so if it is splashed on tablecloths or clothes, it tends to be easier to clean than paraffin.


Burning: Soy candles burn cleaner and more thoroughly than paraffin. The British "Daily Mail" reported that many paraffin candles contain synthetic fragrances and dyes that, when heated, emit harmful particulate matter.
Recycling: Soy candles are non-toxic, renewable and recyclable. In addition, you can reuse the soy candles in the glass container.
Aroma: Because soy candles burn slowly, they allow them to release multiple hours of essential oils, with a mild, diffuse scent rather than a powerful explosive synthetic scent. Plant and flower-derived scent or "aromatherapy" candles have always been a favorite.
Cost: Although soy candles tend to be expensive, they tend to burn longer. When you factor in the burning time, the price/performance ratio of soy candles often wins.
