Soy Wax vs Coconut Wax! - Simply Melted

Soy Wax vs Coconut Wax!

Soy wax has taken off hugely in recent years within the candle industry. With both makers and buyers looking for something more natural and sustainable. Soy is better than Paraffin Wax (derived from petroleum, coal, or oil shale). But it often leaves many critics arguing over the true sustainability of soy. It has been widely linked to further deforestation as the soy industry has boomed, it’s also often treated with pesticides which leaves a residue on the soy bean. Some also argue that to extract soy wax it has to be treated and extracted through a chemical process. That all being said it is still a far more natural choice over paraffin wax, the bottom line with the choice comes down to preference and how deep your believes in it is.

But is there a better alternative?

We definitely think so!!!

Here is why we feel Coconut Wax is the new superstar and a better choice than soy.

  • Coconut Wax is a renewable, high yield crop. This makes it a great sustainable product. It is also not linked to deforestation. We Love Eco Friendly! 
  • Coconut Wax burns cleaner and longer than any of the other waxes. Longer burn mearns you get better value with every purchase!
  • Coconut Wax has an amazing scent throw. Fragrance oils and essential oils blend perfectly with this wax and the wax retains the scents for much longer.
  • Coconut Wax is a Non-GMO product. 
  • Coconut Wax has beautiful, creamy white color and silky to the touch.

When we decided to start our business we researched every wax on the market. Coconut Wax won us over before we even poured our first candle. We wanted a product that represented true light. A product that used ingredients with a negative eco footprint was not an option. Just like how we’ve eliminated much of our use of plastic, coconut wax compliments this with its more eco friendly values.
