ENG- Why we use soy wax for our scented candles

We use top quality soy wax for our Bold Moon scented candles. But why aren’t we using beeswax, paraffin or rapeseed?

Soy wax + renewable:

Most candles you find in stores are made from paraffin. Soy wax is known as an environmentally friendly alternative for paraffin. It’s made from soy beans, a plant that grows fast and is renewable. Paraffin is made from petroleum and also used in gasoline, it is a exhaustible resource. Plus our soy wax comes from EU based lands, and doesn’t infect the rainforest what so ever. We protect the world a tiny bit by choosing soy wax instead of paraffin.

Soy wax + durability:

Soy wax burns 45% longer than other wax alternatives. Soy wax burns cleaner and has almost no wax leftovers in your Bold Moon container. Extra worth for your money, plus you don’t have to buy candles as often. More burning hours in your glass jar!

Soy wax + Cruelty free :

All Bold Moon scented candles, are 100% plant based, vegan and cruelty free. Thats why we don’t choose for beeswax, an animal product. We need those hard working bees to keep up their good work. So thats why we leave them alone 🙂

Soy wax + clean:

Spilled some soy wax? It’s very easy to clean, you only need a little bit of warm water and soap. Extra easy if you want to re-use your Bold Moon container as a plant pot or to keep your treasures in. Our soy wax is also free from toxins, carcinogenic substances and pollutants. Do you have a sensitive nose or you sometimes sneeze when a candle is lit? A soy wax candle is maybe the way to go for you.

Soy wax + scent throw

Soy wax is known for its excellent scent throw.  We put the maximum percentage of essential oils and perfumes in our Bold Moon Candles so that your home fills up with good smells. Thats why our tea lights can fill up a room with our exclusive scents. Don’t like a strong scent? Use shorter burning times. We recommend 4 hours for a excellent throw and 2 hours for our sensitive noses.
