Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated.

As a lover of our environment I am very conscientious about using products that are as environmentally friendly to our planet.
After researching different soy wax products I chose to use Natural Soy Wax as the base for all my candles. As a company I am very aware of sourcing our raw materials from as ecologically friendly producers as possible. This is why I use products from Cargill.
Cargill has been working to end deforestation related to soy production since 2001. They promote sustainable practices to meet the worlds growing demand for soy in food, animal feed and to bio-fuel driven by increasing nutritional needs, changing dietary habits and desire for fossil fuel alternatives. Cargill now have 100% traceability on all their soya bean products and producers.
In 2006, Cargill worked with industry, government and NGO partners to put in place the Soy Moratorium in Brazil. As part of this agreement, we committed not to purchase from or offer financing to farmers who grow soy on lands in the Amazon biome that were deforested after that date. The moratorium has since been adapted to align with Brazil’s new Forest Code and extended indefinitely. Today, we are working with The Nature Conservancy to help farmers comply with the Brazilian Forest Code, enter the rural environmental registry (or CAR) and adopt sustainable practices.
