Why Soy? It's better for the environment!

What makes our candles different?

Simply- we use soy wax, phthalate-free fragrances, and the maximum fragrance load! You can smell the difference.

Benefits of Soy Wax

What are the benefits of using soy wax? The environment! Soy wax is the hydrogenated form of soybean oil and is biodegradable.  Soy beans are a renewable and carbon neutral resource. The soy wax in our candles come from American grown soy plants. Soy candles also have a longer burn time than other candles, and they are soot-free, emitting zero petro-carbon soot. Healthy for the environment, and healthy for you and your family.

 

Non-soy candles

Most commercial candles are made from paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil, or unrefined petroleum. Yuck! Ever notice a black substance coming from commercial candles? Those are particles from the incomplete combustion of petroleum fuels.

One complaint of soy candles compared to paraffin candles is the lessened scent. Luster & Lore candles use the max scent load for the wax, surpassing, the aroma of any paraffin candle. Each fragrance in Luster & Lore candles is phthalate-free and does not have the chemical smell that most other candles have.
