Paraffin vs. Eco-Soy Wax: Unlocking the Secret to Cleaner and Greener Candle Burning
As candle enthusiasts, we understand the joy of lighting a beautifully scented candle and enjoying its warm glow.

At Yougi, we're committed to crafting candles that are not only exquisite in scent and design, but also environmentally friendly. In this blog post, we'll dive into the differences between paraffin and eco-soy wax, and why Yougi use of eco-soy wax gives us a competitive edge in the world of candles. Get ready to discover the secret to cleaner and greener candle burning with Yougi!
Understanding Paraffin Wax: The Conventional Choice Paraffin wax is a by product of petroleum, and it has been widely used in candle making for decades. It's often chosen for its low cost and ability to hold fragrance well. However, paraffin wax has some downsides. When burned, it releases harmful chemicals into the air, such as benzene and toluene, which are known to be potential carcinogens and respiratory irritants. Paraffin candles also produce black soot that can stain walls, ceilings, and furniture, and may contain toxic additives like lead in the wicks.
Introducing Eco-Soy Wax: A Cleaner and Greener Alternative At Yougi, we're proud to use eco-soy wax in our candles. Eco-soy wax is made from soybean oil, a renewable and sustainable resource. It's biodegradable, non-toxic, and has a lower carbon footprint compared to paraffin wax. When burned, eco-soy wax releases minimal soot and no harmful chemicals, making it a cleaner and greener choice for the environment and our health. Our eco-soy wax candles also have cotton wicks that are free from lead and other harmful metals, ensuring a safe and clean burning experience.
When it comes to candle burning, choosing the right wax matters. With Yougi's use of eco-soy wax, you can enjoy cleaner, greener, and healthier candles that not only elevate your space, but also align with your values of sustainability and health. Say goodbye to harmful chemicals and black soot, and say hello clean and 100% natural candles.
