Scented soy wax candles are made from soy wax that's carefully produced in a multi-step process, blended with fine fragrance, and poured into the candles' vessels.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax derived from soybean oil after the raw soybeans are processed. The soybeans are harvested, cleaned, de-hulled, opened, and rolled into flecks. Oil is then extracted and hydrogenated.
With this process, unsaturated fatty acids in the oil become saturated, dramatically altering the oil's melting point allowing for the best, slow and efficient burn. The poured soy wax then solidifies in the vessel to a solid, burnable, clean vegetable derived wax to provide excellent candles and burning experiences.
