Why are soy candles eco friendly?

Soy candles are considered eco-friendly for several reasons:

Renewable Resource: Soy wax is made from soybeans, a renewable and biodegradable resource. ๐ŸŒฑ Unlike paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, soy wax is sustainable and reduces reliance on fossil fuels.

Lower Carbon Footprint: The production of soy wax generates fewer carbon emissions compared to the extraction and refining of petroleum-based paraffin wax. 

๐ŸŒ This contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.

Biodegradable: Soy wax is naturally biodegradable, which means it breaks down 
more easily in the environment compared to paraffin wax, which can take many
years to decompose. ๐ŸŒฟ

Cleaner Burning: Soy candles burn cleaner than paraffin candles, producing less
soot and releasing fewer toxins into the air. This results in better air quality and
fewer pollutants. ๐Ÿ’จ

Non-Toxic: Soy wax is non-toxic and does not release harmful chemicals when burned, making it a healthier choice for both the environment and indoor air quality. ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿงช

Zinc and Lead-Free Wicks: Illumina Candle Supplies only sells zinc and lead-free wicks, which improves indoor air quality, is better for the environment, reduces toxic emissions, complies with safety regulations, and enhances overall candle performance. Additionally, our wicks are unbleached, unlike other brands. โœจ

In summary, soy candles are eco-friendly because they are made from a
renewable resource, have a lower environmental impact, burn cleaner, and support sustainable manufacturing.
