Coy About Soy? Not Tamar Valley Candles
We investigate the details of switching to Soy candles and the benefits for you.
Soy wax is 100% vegetable based, and the soy wax used at Tamar Valley Candles has no additional additives. It's a non-toxic wax, ideal should you have children around the house that might consider a brightly coloured candle something edible, or should you wish to reuse your candle-containers once the candle has burned down.
Soy wax has a more generous scent-throw than an equivalent paraffin candle and will burn for slightly longer, therefore it offers better value for money.
Pippa at Tamar Valley Candles tells us more, "Soy candles are fantastic candles to burn. They have a clean creamy appearance with few if any imperfections making them ideal for glass containers and a soy candle doesn't give off as much soot as its paraffin cousin."
Their website gives a clear indication as to why soy candles should be on our shopping lists:
10 Great Reasons Why We Love Soy Wax (and why you should too):
Free from pesticides & herbicides
Not tested on animals
Cooler burn temperature, therefore longer burning than paraffin
Non-toxic (good to know if you have children around!)
Does not stain
More generous scent-throw
Renewable & sustainable
Free of GM ingredients
