At Palmetto Wicks our top priority is providing our customers with a high-quality product. Our candles are all 100% handmade. The melting, mixing, pouring, and even labeling are all done by hand at our base of operations in Spartanburg, South Carolina. We use nothing but 100% soy wax made from American soy beans and nothing but the finest fragrance oils and colorants. Our products are designed to burn clean, look good, and smell even better!
Why Soy Wax?
Most candles on the market are made from paraffin wax, which is a byproduct of petroleum. The reason paraffin wax is so widely used is because it is very cheap. The downside to paraffin wax is that it creates benzene and toluene when burned, which are toxins and known carcinogens.
Soy wax is a clean alternative to paraffin. It also burns cooler than paraffin, and thus soy candles can last 30-50% longer than paraffin candles. Our soy wax is also capable of holding and throwing a large amount of fragrance. We take full advantage of this by making our candles some of the most fragrant you will come across!
Other benefits of soy wax are that it is 100% biodegradable and water soluble. Being that our wax is made from American-grown soy beans, we also take pride in aiding the agricultural industry in the USA.
