 A Closer Look at Popular Candle Waxes

 Soy Wax: The Eco-Friendly Favorite

- Eco-friendly: It's biodegradable and sustainable.

- Clean Burn: Less soot compared to some waxes.

- Great Scent Throw: Holds onto scents well.

- Long Burn Time: Burns slower, meaning your candle lasts longer.


- Frosting: Can sometimes have a frosty appearance.

- Softness: More prone to melting in hot climates.

SOSA's Stance: We're all about soy wax! Its eco-friendly nature and excellent scent throw align perfectly with our values.

 Coconut Wax: The Luxurious Choice

Intro: Coconut wax is made from cold-pressed coconut oil and is relatively new to the candle scene.

SOSA's Stance: We adore coconut wax for its luxe feel and sustainability. It’s a key player in our high-end candle lines.

 Paraffin Wax: The Traditionalist's Choice
