Candles have always held a special place in our hearts, casting a warm and inviting glow in our homes. However, as our environmental consciousness grows, we choose to make our candles out a product that we believe that is sustainable for the environment and cost effective for our potential customers. While both soy wax and beeswax have their merits, in this blog post we here at Zanmi will show why soy wax stands out as the better option in terms of sustainability, affordability, and versatility.
Soy wax is derived from soybeans, which are a renewable resource. Soybean cultivation is widespread, and it's relatively easy to replenish the supply. In contrast, beeswax is produced by bees and depends on the health and population of bee colonies. Given the ongoing challenges faced by bees due to habitat loss and environmental stressors, relying on beeswax can contribute to the pressure on these vital pollinators.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The production of soy wax produce a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to beeswax. Soybean farming tends to be more efficient, with fewer emissions associated with its cultivation and processing. Beeswax production, on the other hand, involves not only the work of bees but also the energy-intensive process of melting and purifying the wax. Our soy wax candles are more affordable than beeswax candles. The abundance of soybean crops means that soy wax is readily available and we can source the best vendor to get our wax from. This affordability of soy wax allows us to make our candles fora reasonable price without making the customers breaking the bank. Our soy wax candles burn longer compared to beeswax candles of the same size. This means that you get more hours of enjoyable candlelight for your money when you choose our soy wax candles.
One of the advantages of soy wax is its superior ability to absorb and release fragrances. Soy candles can hold a higher amount of scent compared to beeswax candles. This results in a more pronounced and long-lasting fragrance experience. Whether you prefer floral, fruity, or spicy scents, our soy candles will delivering a satisfying olfactory experience.
Minimal Soot and Smoke
Soy wax burns cleaner than beeswax, producing minimal soot and smoke. This not only contributes to a healthier indoor environment but also reduces the need for frequent cleaning of candle holders and surrounding surfaces. Our soy candles are an excellent choice for individuals who value cleanliness and ease of maintenance.
