Soy Wax

There are many reasons as to why soy wax is better than paraffin wax in candles and melts.  Soy Wax is cleaner burning and cooler so generally burns 30-50% longer than a paraffin making it better both for the environment and your health! Soy Wax also contains zero toxins, carcinogens or pollutants so is less likely to trigger allergies making it a better alternative to old-fashioned paraffin wax (from petroleum oil) which produces harmful by-products when burned or melted.

It is a natural, renewable and biodegradable resource derived from sustainably grown soybeans. It is free from pesticides, genetically modified materials and herbicides offering a clean, even and long lasting burn. 

Derived from the soybean, soy wax is a hydrogenated vegetable oil that turns to a solid at room temperature. Soy wax contains nothing artificial.

Beeswax Candles

In addition to supporting sustainable beekeeping, natural beeswax candles help clean the air while burning by reducing pollutants that cause asthma and allergies. Unlike paraffin candles, which are made with a petroleum-based wax, beeswax candles have a completely clean non-toxic burn and produce negative ions when burning.

They also burn cleaner and longer than paraffin and soy candles but raw materials are 4-5 times the cost of Soy waxes.

Beeswax is considered suitable for vegetarians as it contains no animal flesh however, is not considered vegan by many as it is judged to be animal exploitation although some vegans do use honey and beeswax as they have no issues with products produced by the bees being consumed. We only produce beeswax products on request but when when we do, to avoid any issues we use different melt pots, jugs and equipment for Soy and beeswax products.

Fragrance Oils Information

Lowe & Co. fragrances are paraben and phthalate free and none of our fragrance oils or waxes are tested on animals. Our Soy and beeswax products are vegetarian friendly and all of our Soy candles and melts are vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Wick Care

Soy wax is known to burn with minimal soot but all candles will emit a degree of soot if the wick is not cared for (see below). To Avoid soot and lengthen the life of your candle keep your wick trimmed to 5-8mm . This is particularly important to avoid black soot marks on glass container candles.

Burning Instructions

Soy wax has a memory in that it will follow the path of the previous burn so for the first time we recommend burning your candle until the wax has melted to the edge of the container. When you light it again it will follow that path and no wax will be wasted. It is also recommended that you burn your candle for a max of 4 hours each time and keep the wick trimmed to 5mm to 8mm.

Please remove all packaging prior to lighting and follow candle safety advice at all times.

Burn Time

Each size of candle or melt has an estimated burn time. The burn time is based on tests we do here and also by independent testers. There are many factors that effect burn time such as the ambient temperature of the room, container diameter and fragrance characteristics. This is why every candle is tested with every variation of container, fragrance or wax blend. Any estimation of time is based on burning your candle for a maximum of 4 hours in every 24 hours period and relies on following our candle care instructions including keeping the wick trimmed.

Candle Safety

To prevent fire and serious injury

  • Burn candle within sight and do not leave unattended.
  • Keep away from drafts and vibrations.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Never burn candles on or near anything flammable.
  • Keep candle free of any foreign materials inc. matches and wick trimmings.
  • Only burn the candle on a level fire resistant surface.

Candle containers get hot when burnt for a long time and may mark painted or varnished surfaces – we recommend the use of a candle plate under your candle to prevent scorching and accidental wax spillage.

Pillar Candles

How to Properly Burn a Pillar Candle

Do not burn your pillar candle in any glass or container. Use a regular candleholder so that the candle can stand on its own, but still have something underneath it to catch wax drippings or support it in case it gets bumped.

Burn it in a level place away from fans, windows, or other drafts in order to keep it burning evenly. If it is placed in drafty conditions, it can begin to burn unevenly or even start to tunnel.
Trim the wick to ¼ inch before each burn.

If the wick is too long, it can start to release soot into the air while it burns. Most candlewicks are originally generous in size, but a longer wick doesn’t mean the candle will burn longer.

The first time you burn your candle, leave it lit long enough so that a wax pool forms across the majority of the top portion of the candle. This is called a full pool. Let your candle flicker one hour for every inch in diameter, so if your pillar candle has a four-inch diameter, let it burn for four hours when you first light it. This prevents tunneling.

Hug in the edges of the pillar candle at the end of each burn by cupping your hands to fold the wax inwards. This will help avoid candle tunneling and allow the excess wax on the edges to be burned along with the center. Tunneling will cause your candle to not last as long.
