What is paraffin wax?
Paraffin wax is made from petroleum. When burned paraffin wax candles can release carcinogens that have been linked to health conditions like cancer and asthma. We have all seen that thick black soot that comes from burning toxic paraffin wax candles--well, that soot contains compounds that are similar in composition to diesel exhaust fumes.
please note when buying candles: there is no regulation for what percentage of soy a candle needs to be to call it a "soy wax candle"
Many candles that are labeled "soy blend" are blended with....you guessed it paraffin wax!
The Joy of Soy
