WAX 101

Coconut Wax 101

Coconut wax comes from the process of collecting coconuts and cold pressing the oil from the meat of the coconut. A cleaning and filtering process creates a creamy bright white wax. Unlike Paraffin Waxes which is a byproduct of petroleum production. Why would you want to burn fossil fuels inside your home?

Why don’t we use 100% Soy Wax like all the other companies?

While 100% Soy wax does burn clean and slowly it has trouble throwing a fragrance. It also has a much smaller fragrance load capability when compared to coconut wax or even paraffin. Therefore Soy wax candles tend to have a weaker smell. Soy is also more temperamental in that it can have unsightly holes or pockets in the wax. Soy wax is a byproduct of the massive soybean industry. Therefore, it is very inexpensive to produce.

Why do we use Coconut Wax?

Coconut wax offers an exceptionally clean burn at a very slow rate, and it throws scent extremely well as it has a much higher fragrance load capability. Most of the candle industry has overlooked coconut wax as it has a higher overall cost per pound. We think the benefits outweigh the cost!
