Why we use soy wax in our candles

All our candles are made from 100% soy wax. The wax we use is guaranteed to be free of genetically modified material, and contains no herbicides or pesticides.

Every stage of the production process is performed by hand to create an individually crafted, artisan product.

The majority of commercially available candles are made from paraffin wax, which is a by-product from the petroleum industry. Paraffin candles are made from a non-renewable resource that contains carcinogens. Paraffin wax candles also create more soot, and can be aggravating for people with asthma or allergies.

Soy wax is a much better product. It is a sustainable resource created from soy beans. Soy wax is also bio-degradable, which is not true of paraffin wax. Soy wax is toxin free, and burns with less soot. Soy candles burn at a lower temperature, which means that they last longer than paraffin wax candles, and disperse fragrance into the air better, creating a superior scented candle.

Soy wax is harder to work with than paraffin wax, as it is much more susceptible to minor variations of temperature in the production process. By using entirely manual production methods, Scarlet Banner ensures that you receive a product of the highest quality.
