Why choose 100% soy wax melts?

Here at Pose Aromas, we spent a long time researching and testing various different waxes to choose our perfect match. Soy? Paraffin? Or a blend of the two, which is a very popular choice with most vendors. Quickly, we decided that 100% soy wax would be our preferred choice.

Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum and it has been claimed that it releases toxic fumes when burnt. In 2009, a study by South Carolina State University found that burning paraffin wax candles gave off harmful fumes (toluene and benzene) which is linked to asthma and lung cancer. In addition, paraffin isn’t a renewable resource. For these reasons we ruled out paraffin completely. We decided we wanted to offer our customers a superior and ethical alternative.

Soy wax is a renewable resource, its vegetable based and 100% non toxic, biodegradable, vegan friendly and cruelty free. The soy wax we use is sourced from North America and Brazil from purely ethical and non-genetically modified sources. Only ethical suppliers have been chosen that do not contribute to de-forestation. Also, any spillages can be cleaned up with soap and water. It has a higher melting point than paraffin. Therefore, soy wax melts will burn at a slower rate, meaning it will release the aromas more gradually and they will last longer, you will achieve a longer burn time and a more effective scent throw.
