Why Choose The California Candle Company?
One of the most famous benefits of soy candles is how clean they burn. Soy wax does not produce the black soot like paraffin does. Paraffin is a petroleum byproduct. That's right, folks, crude oil! Air quality tests have presented evidence that the soot from paraffin candles has several of the same compounds as burning diesel fuel, including up to 11 carcinogens. Burning paraffin candles are listed as one of the TOP contributors to indoor pollution. Soy wax candles don't produce ONE carcinogen. While some might say "no soot", it's actually "little soot". Everything that burns puts off smoke, and soy candles are no exception. However, the amount of smoke released from soy wax is so minimal, there are very few that notice it.
Many advertised "soy candles" have unknown blends that you may not catch unless you search deep into their site. If it doesn't say 100% or tell you what's in the candles, watch out. The California Candle Company products are always made with 100% natural soy wax (and lots 'o love). They will not discolor your walls, ceilings or furniture because there are never any petroleum byproducts.
Another reason you see black soot could have been the use of metal wicks. While no candle made in the US has lead, they can have zinc. Zinc wicks are not as toxic as lead, but they will produce more soot than cotton or hemp wicks. At The California Candle Company, we use paper core wicks to keep in line with our environmentally sustainable practices.
Soy wax burns 30% to 50% longer than paraffin. A point which sometimes isn't included in many lists of the benefits of soy candles is that in many cases soy wax can be more cost effective than paraffin. Not only in quality, but in quantity too. Soy not only burns cleaner, but cooler also. So, a soy candle can burn up to twice as long (sometimes even more!) than paraffin, giving you twice the candle. The California Candle Company candles burn for approximately 5 hours per 1 oz. Our proprietary wax also doesn't "tunnel" so you burn all of the wax evenly, all the way to the bottom.
Promoting American Farmers
Help the farmers and everyone benefits. Soy beans are grown in American fields, and processed into soy wax in the USA as well. We think this is one of the most important benefits of making our candles with natural soy wax! (You can say we are also a Vegan Candle) Want to help alleviate our dependencies on foreign oil? Most paraffin wax is manufactured from petroleum from foreign countries. You don't have to be an economic major to know cheap paraffin candles made in other countries doesn't benefit anyone but the big business selling it. Support our farmers and our economy!
Wonderful Scent Throw
When it's said that a candle scent "throws well", this means it fills the room with a strong, lasting scent. Soy wax candles not only have a great scent throw, but also have a cleaner smell. It's been noted by many that paraffin wax will give them headaches. Of course it's not the scent itself, but the additional chemicals the paraffin is putting off. Because soy burns so clean, you'll get a cleaner scent as well.
Biodegradable, Non-Toxic, and Water Soluble
Soy wax is simply hydrogenated soybean oil which makes it naturally, biodegradable, non-toxic, and completely harmless to the environment, children and pets. Spills and stains can be cleaned up with soap and water because it's water soluble too.
PREMIUM GRADE Essential Oils
Premium Grade Essential Oils are important because if you choose to utilize the melted candle wax as a dry skin/eczema treatment, like many of our current customers do, by using Premium Grade Essential Oils your assuring yourself both Safety and Quality). Additionally, the essential oils utilized in our Pure Elegance Collection are made from 1st distillation oils ONLY. The highest quality available.
