Why Choose Soy Wax?

At YR Studio, we craft all of our natural candles from 100% soy wax. Our dream is to help you create a haven of relaxation in your home and moments in the day to restore balance in your lives. To do this, we wanted to use the most natural and sustainable ingredients possible and soy wax was the perfect solution. But, why should you choose soy wax? And do the benefits really outweigh those of paraffin or beeswax? Read on to discover more.

What Is Soy Wax?

Derived from the soybean vegetable, soy wax is a natural product used primarily in candles. The beans are harvested, cracked, dehulled and then rolled into flakes. The flakes are then hydrogenated which results in a soft and pliable wax that is perfect for burning and blending with essential oils.

Why Choose Soy Wax?

Soybean wax offers a host of benefits - each of which acting as a reason to choose it over other alternatives. It:

  • Is entirely natural and carbon neutral.
  • Has a lower melting point to extend the lifespan of your candle.
  • Doesn’t release as many toxins or soot into the air as paraffin wax.
  • Is a renewable resource and sustainable too.
  • Is fully biodegradable and can be cleaned up easily.

Discover YR Studio Soy Wax Candles

We create soy wax candles that merge into your yoga practice or relaxation meditations. Our artisanal blends are hand-poured using vegan and phthalate-free soy in plastic-free packaging and with glass jars that can be reused. With a keen eye for quality control, we’re confident that our luxury range will help to lull you into a moment of relaxation and create a cosy haven to sink into.
