Compared to petroleum-based paraffin wax, soy wax is a natural and safer alternative for candle enthusiasts. Made from soybeans, this ingredient comes from a renewable and biodegradable resource. At Maibo, we particularly like soy wax for its non-toxic properties and its environmental impact. Indeed, soy wax does not release any of the pollutants emitted by traditional paraffin.
As for its use, soy wax burns at a lower temperature, thus providing a longer burn time. A soy wax candle will burn approximately 50% longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. Our soy wax is FDA (American Food and Drug Administration) approved, and Kosher certified.
The wooden wicks are made from cherry wood sourced from the United States by the Forest Stewardship Council - Certified Mills. We especially love the wooden wicks for the soothing crackling sound they emit. The rapid formation of a combustion pool also promises a pleasant fragrance spray. All wicks are non-GMO, vegan, ecological, unprocessed, and 100% natural.
* Note: Wooden wicks require more maintenance than a traditional cotton wick. To ensure the longevity of the candle, it is essential to cut the wick to ¼ ”before each use. It is usual for the candle to require a few ignitions to light properly. As with a wood fire, wood wicks remind us that patience is the key.
