WHAT IS SOY WAX??
Soy wax is made from - you guessed it - SOY BEANS! Once harvested, soy beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled and rolled into flakes. The oils are extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process changes the fatty acids from unsaturated to saturated - also altering melting point and allowing the oils to solidify at room temperature.
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT IT?
Soy wax is totally renewable, carbon neutral and overall eco friendly! Soy wax melts at approx. 48 degrees Celsius which isn't much hotter than your average spa pool - meaning you can comfortably dip your finger in the wax and rub it on your skin. We're sure we weren't the only ones to dip our fingers into a paraffin candle as a kid and let it set all the while holding back the tears from the burn..... WELL GOOD NEWS! Soy stays in it's oil form and is absorbed like a moisturiser. Soy wax washes with hot soapy water meaning if you spill it on carpet - EASY! On clothes - EASY? Want to reuse your jars? EASY!!!
A MASSAGE CANDLE, YOU SAY?
A massage candle is a mixture of cocoa butter, shea butter & a few other secret ingredients. The ingredients mean an even lower melting point. You let the candle melt for approx. 20 minutes, smother the flame and use the melted fluid as a massage oil. Most scents are safe to use on your skin!
