The Benefits of Soy Wax & Shea Butter

Why choose soy wax candles?

Paraffin wax is a byproduct of petroleum and is not a renewable resource. It is toxic when inhaled in large quantities. Many candles sold in malls and department stores are made with paraffin wax. Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This is the same soy wax we make our candles with! Soy is biodegradable and cleans up with water. Our candles are vegan friendly and are better for the environment.  

 

Why choose shea butter soap bars?

Soap bars are much more eco-friendly than your conventional body wash. Less bottles = less plastic! Our soap bars are wrapped in biodegradable paper. Shea butter is extremely moisturizing and is wonderful for eczema, psoriasis and acne. The moisture and nourishing properties that shea butter offers are a great way to better manage these skin issues.
