Why use soy?

1
You’ll find that the majority of candles – regardless of price – are made using paraffin wax which is sourced from crude oil. Flo candles however are hand-poured using only soy wax, made from natural soybeans.
Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature, giving you a longer burn time to enjoy your candles.
The soy wax we use is:
Environmentally friendly: Many people are searching for green products to replace more traditional ones that are unfriendly towards the environment. By using soy wax candles you are choosing to support the environment. Soy is a resource that can be replaced at a rate comparable or faster to the rate of consumption. Soy is continually producible without damaging the ecosystem.
100% vegetable: Made with pure soybean oil, the wax is natural and biodegradable. Our soy wax is free of pesticides and herbicides, free of toxic materials and free of genetically modified materials. The wax is not tested on animals.
Great for fragrance: The consistency of soy wax allows for candles with a stronger scent and a purer scent throw. A perfect match for the essential oils we use throughout our range.
Burns cooler: It burns up to 50% longer and more cleanly than paraffin wax without soot build-up.
Safer for children: Soy wax is non-toxic and burns at a cooler temperature for worry-free use around children.
No staining: Soy wax does not stain, so you don’t have to worry about ruining clothing, furniture or other items. It is also easy to clean the containers with soap and warm water – before reusing them for storage, to hold potpourri, or as tealight holders.
