What is Soy Wax?

What is soy wax? Soy wax is a natural wax made from the oil contained in soy beans. Once harvested the soy beans are cleaned, hulled and made into flakes. It’s these flakes that the oil is extracted from. 

As a natural product soy wax can sometimes appear “frosty”. 

The common term for this is “polymorphism” and describes the white coating that sometimes appears on soy wax product. 

Frosting is a perfectly natural effect of using soy wax and is unique to vegetable waxes, particularly soy. It is the natural wax re-crystallising and trying to return to its natural state.

Frosting is a sign that the wax used is 100% natural soy wax. Some soy waxes have additives to help prevent frosting, however we use 100% natural soy wax, so some frosting is to be expected. Frosting does not affect the performance of your wax melts.

We think that the best way to fragrance your home is with soy natural wax melts.
