At Picket&Rail Lifestyle, our candles are made with 100% soy wax and we wear it with pride. With more research into paraffin wax as of late, it is obvious why people are making the switch to soy, especially if you have young, growing children at home. The differences between these two materials are worlds apart!
If you love your scents, read on to understand why you should be more vigilant about your candles.
What is paraffin wax?
Paraffin wax is a byproduct of the oil purification process. Through a dewaxing process that crude oil undergoes, paraffin wax is derived and is then processed further for use in products. Today, petroleum-based paraffin wax can be found in candles, wax paper, polishes, cosmetics, and electrical insulators, among other commercial items.
