All about Soy Wax

All about Soy Wax

Mi Amor Natural Soy Candles are made from natural soy blend wax, which is a hydrogenated form of soybean oil. It is typically softer than paraffin wax. Natural Soy Blend Wax is used in containers because soy wax typically has a lower melting point than traditional waxes. Natural Soy wax has an off-white, opaque appearance and may frost in colder months. This does not affect the burn or aroma of a soy candle, but should re-assure that no additives have been added.

Candle making additives that are sometimes used in soy candle making include:stearic acid, Vybar (a trademarked polymer), mineral oil, petrolatum, luster crystals, dye/pigment, fragrance(natural or artificial), paraffin wax, ultraviolet absorbers, and bht crystals.

Mi Amor Candles DO NOT use any of the above additives.
