Why Soy Wax?

You’ve heard that candles made from soy wax are “better” but what does that mean, exactly? We’re here to break it down for you and explain why Untamed Supply uses 100% domestically grown soy wax, fine fragrance oils, cotton-core wicks, and absolutely no additives or dyes. 

First thing’s first; what is soy wax? Soy wax is hydrogenated soybean oil extracted from soybean plants, a natural and ‪‎sustainable resource. The alternative, paraffin wax, is made by removing the waxy substance from crude oil. Because paraffin wax is made from a fossil fuel, a non-renewable resource, it releases a black, petrol-carbon soot from the candles that stains and circulates through the air. 

By using soy wax, you are utilizing a non-toxic and natural alternative to petroleum-based paraffin, that is renewable and biodegradable, as well as safe for people with asthma and allergies. You can breathe easy knowing you are also supporting American soybean farmers instead of big oil companies when purchasing soy candles.  

Have you ever wondered how Untamed Supply candles have such a long burn time? Soy wax burns at a cooler temperature, which means the candle doesn’t burn as quickly. Because soy wax emits a more pure scent throw, it allows for you to enjoy your favorite scent, naturally. 

It’s no secret that at Untamed Supply we believe in providing the highest quality non-toxic products to our customers. That is something we will continue to do and we will never stray from that, however, as soy wax rises in popularity, the price point does, too. Because we refuse to compromise on our promise to provide only natural products, there is a chance you may see a slight price increase on our products due to the demand. It is our hope that you will understand that a slight price increase is only so that we can continue to offer and provide the cleanest, longest lasting soy candles that you will breathe easy burning.
