Do you suffer from Asthma or Allergies?
Soy Candles are ideal for allergy sufferers.
They produce very little to no soot, no harmful chemicals, and very little to no emissions. Our candles are hand-poured using 100% pure soy candle wax and all cotton wicks. Better for your health and the environment.
Our wax is made from soy beans; it is non-toxic and biodegradable. Soy wax is about as organic as organic gets. It was discovered in 1991 as a newer alternative to paraffin wax. Paraffin wax was discovered in 1850. It’s made from removing the waxy substance from crude oil; petroleum, a by-product of the crude oil refining process, in its raw form, it is a white, odorless, tasteless, “waxy” solid. It is the most commonly used wax in candle making.
What if you are allergic to soy? Will a soy candle cause any harm?
The answer to this question is no, for the simple reason you are not ingesting the wax. It’s the digestive proteins that trigger the allergy. Since you are burning the candle, the protein chains are broken up and are no longer the same molecules that could cause the allergy.
However, an allergy caused by a soy scented candle is very common.
If by some reason you do have a reaction, which can happen, it’s caused by the added fragrance not the soy wax. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine how you will react to each fragrance. The only way to know the out come is to light the candle and observe your reaction. Fragrance materials that are known allergens are not used by the fragrance industry.
The bottom line is not to worry about soy wax candles aggravating your allergies. If you don’t want to push the envelope avoid any kind of fragrances you know that will trigger your allergies. At Jojo’s Candle Co recommend purchasing a sample pack rather than purchasing 1 scent will give you the flexibility to know how you are going to react with the different fragrances.
