1. Soya wax is naturally derived from soya beans . Soya oil is separated form soya beans through process hydrogenation. Soya oil is treated with hydrogen solution ,which causes oil to solidify and create wax. Soya wax is non toxic and is either 100% natural or a combination of non soya oil like other vegetable product, which also means it is environmental friendly and doesn't harm health. As it meets several requirements under federal regulations that classify it as clean-burning wax. It is colourless and typically appears opaque.
Whereas on other hand Paraffin waxes are actually petroleum based and are created using crude oil which is extracted from the earth. On a molecular level, crude oil is a mixture of hydrocarbons that were created from the decomposition of plants and animals that lived under water many years ago. Once extracted, crude oil is sent to refineries where it is then turned into finished products like lubricating oil. It is from the lube oil refining process that paraffin waxes are created.
2. Soya wax candles burns clean, whereas paraffin wax candles is petroleum based and emits dark black soot which can stain walls,curtains and carpets.
3.Soya wax does not release dangerous carcinogens into the air like paraffin wax when melted. Burning or melting paraffin releases at least 11 known toxins—two of which are carcinogens—into the air. Carcinogens are known to cause cancer in some people.
4. Soybeans from which soy wax is derived is environment friendly, because soybeans are a renewable resource. Whereas paraffin wax comes from petroleum, which is non renewable resource. Healthwise soy wax is the best option especially if you are pregnant, have kids, or pets.
5.Soy wax candles are more cost-effective as it burns more evenly, so less wax is left clinging to the sides of the glass as waste.
6.Unlike paraffin, soy wax has low melting point. Which means,if accidentally while moving the burning candle wax spills over you, there is less risk of burn. Low melting point, also means that soy wax candles burns for more hours as compared to paraffin wax candles.
7.Soy wax candles emits fragrance slowly and in a more soothing manner. Whereas paraffin wax candles emits fragrances mixed with toxics of its own ,which makes it over powering and gives headaches.
NOTE- Kamseen candles are made from soya and other combination of non soya plant based wax. Our candles are hand poured and we don't use paraffin wax in our candles,which is usually practiced by big brands.
