Why Soy Wax?

Candles by No 18 want to ensure that we are creating the very best candles and wax melts that we can. This is why we only ever use soy wax in our products. Here are a few reasons why:

Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. Therefore, our wax is completely natural and safe to use inside your home.

Soy wax doesn’t release toxins, carcinogens or pollutants when burning. This reduces the chances of triggering allergies such as asthma.

Soy is a renewable vegetable source, unlike paraffin wax, which relies on the supply of crude oil.

Soy wax is 100% carbon neutral so you can burn your candle knowing that it hasn’t had a negative impact on our planet.

Soy wax burns slower than paraffin wax based candles meaning longer lasting candles and that you get better value for money.
