A Bit About Soy Wax

First things first, let's talk about soy wax. It's a game-changer in the candle world, derived from the humble soybean, making it a renewable and biodegradable star. Unlike traditional paraffin wax, which comes from petroleum, eco soy wax candles burn cleaner, longer, and kinder to our planet.


Why Soy Wax?

  • Renewable Resource: Soybeans are a renewable resource, and opting for soy wax supports agricultural industries.
  • Clean Burning: Soy wax candles produce less soot and toxins, making them better for indoor air quality.
  • Long-lasting: They tend to burn slower, meaning you get more bang for your buck.


Types of Soy Wax: A Closer Look

There's more beneath the surface than meets the eye. The diversity in soy wax types is not just about the form; it's about function, application, and, importantly, its environmental impact. Understanding these nuances is crucial for anyone keen on making eco-conscious candle choices, especially if you're browsing soy wax candles online.

Container Soy Wax

This type is specifically formulated for candles in jars or other containers. Its lower melting point ensures a smooth, even burn, making it ideal for those cosy evenings at home. Container soy waxes offer excellent scent throw, both when the candle is lit and unlit, perfect for infusing your space with your favourite aromas. They're the go-to for most eco-soy wax candles, providing a clean, long-lasting burn without the carbon footprint of traditional waxes.

Pillar Soy Wax

For those who love a candle that can stand on its own, pillar soy wax is the answer. With a slightly higher melting point, this wax is robust enough to hold its shape, allowing for stunning freestanding candles for moulding into various shapes and sizes. Pillar soy wax candles are a statement piece, combining the aesthetic appeal with the eco-friendly credentials of using soy.

DIY Soy Wax

For craft enthusiasts and the DIY crowd, there's nothing like making candles. DIY soy wax comes in easy-to-melt flakes, offering a blank canvas for personalising eco-friendly candles. Whether you aim to create gifts, set a specific mood, or experiment with scents and colours, DIY soy wax provides a sustainable and fun way to get creative.


Making Eco-Conscious Candle Choices

Now, onto the eco-conscious part. Choosing soy wax candles online isn't just about clicking the 'add to cart' button. It's about understanding where and how they're made.

Look for Local

Supporting local artisans boosts the community and reduces carbon footprints associated with shipping. At Zeropolitan, our collection features candles that echo the spirit of sustainability.

Check the Packaging

Eco-consciousness extends to packaging. Opt for candles that come in recyclable or reusable containers, like our bamboo candle range. From the zesty coconut lime to the soothing lavender, each candle promises sustainability down to the packaging.

Fragrance Matters

The scent is the soul of a candle, but not all fragrances are created eco-friendly. Look for candles using natural essential oils or phthalate-free fragrances, ensuring your scented journey is as green as it is fragrant.

The Wick

Yes, even the wick counts. Wood wicks offer that mesmerising crackle and a more sustainable option than their metal counterparts.
