FOUND IN OUR: Soy Candles.
WHAT IT DOES: Referred to as "the miracle crop" because they can be used for many things (including candle wax). They're also a completely renewable resource. Our soy wax is non-GMO, kosher, and free from any toxins (pesticides and herbicides.) Soy's lower burn temperature allows us to use 100% cotton wicks (versus metal) to keep air toxin free. Lower burn temperatures also allow our candles burn up to 50% longer than paraffin.
