If you are vegan and love candles, you might be wondering if soy candles are vegan or not. The answer is simple: soy wax is vegan, so soy candle is vegan too. But there is also another question: how to find the best soy candle? We have an idea about this, as we are passionate about candles we also are respectful to the nature. As HAZE Candles we only use natural soy wax and essential oils, if you are wondering why we are using essential oils in our natural candles you can find the answer in the benefits of essential oils.

It is also known that soy wax actually hold scent better than other products so our essential oils are well infused into our candles and evaporate evenly throughout your environment giving a spa-like feel to lighting our candles.

Most of the so-called vegan candles are made with soy wax or any vegetable wax but they are blended with chemical fragrances. There is another thing that you should be aware is that paraffin wax candles are called vegan as well. But paraffin wax is a derived form of petrol.

What is Soy Wax?
You want to buy soy candles but have that question in your mind: Is Soy Candles Vegan? Or at least you're looking for a vegetarian candle. You can be happy to hear that soy wax is a natural ingredient. But what makes the difference?
It's simple: soy wax extraction makes the fat of the soy beans separate from itself. After a cleaning process the soy wax is ready. That's where the soy candle wax comes from. As a scent we prefer to use essential oils to stay natural and vegan.
