Soy, Shmoy!

Posted on

Welcome to the Chicago Candle Co. blog. 

We want this to be a place that customers visit and visit often.  Our first post will be dedicated to letting you in on our secrets of soy.  Don't worry, we'll start slow.

What are soy candles?

Soy wax is a new alternative to paraffin wax, made from soybeans, is renewable and cost effective. The soybean is one of the most versatile products used today. It has been a high protein source for millions of people for thousands of years. Soybean wax also seems to be the most promising natural wax available.

Soy is in lots of things like body & skin care products, hair products, crayons, paint removers, and cleaning products. The production and burning of soy wax candles can greatly benefit the American agricultural economy. When soy wax replaces common paraffin wax, an estimated 60 million pounds of soy beans will be required for annual candle production.  I predict we'll see some happy farmers!

Are our candles completely chemical free?

Honestly, this is an impossible claim to make. Water is a chemical, air is a chemical, essential oils are chemicals, and the world as we know it is a configuration of various carbon chains. Our fragrance chemists are committed to making smart, responsible raw material choices and, whenever possible, obtaining materials from renewable plant resources (also known as essential oils). 

Our high quality fragrance oils contain no heavy metals (such as lead), are created just for us, using natural essential oils, aroma-chemicals, and are balanced perfectly to both optimize our blends and to create a clean burn!
