Why Soy? 

When my husband decided to start making candles, he wanted to make a high quality product that wasn’t going to hurt the environment.

The soy wax he has chosen is 100% soy. Soy beans are a renewable source and the wax that is made from soy is naturally biodegradable, so the wax is really an eco-friendly product.

Not only is this wax eco-friendly but soy also has amazing fragrance-holding qualities. This means our scented candles will give a long-lasting even scent while burning. Soy is also cleaner burning and longer lasting than a paraffin wax candle.

Paraffin is a petroleum based product, which in turn can produce petrol-carbon soot that can blacken walls as well as release toxic carcinogens into the air.

The soy wax Richmond Hill Candle Co. uses has many benefits:

  1. It’s a renewable, sustainable resource
  2. It’s natural & biodegradable
  3. It’s 100% vegetable based
  4. It burns longer and cleaner than paraffin wax
  5. You don’t get the soot build-up that would use using a paraffin wax
  6. It’s easy to clean up with soap & hot water, eliminating the need for solvents
  7. It’s not subject to animal testing
  8. It’s Vegan friendly
  9. It’s produced without genetically modified material
