Dipped candles were first introduced by the Romans in 500 BCE using animal fats called tallow as the main component. This process didn't change for over a thousand years, until 1850, during the industrial revolution, when scientists successfully learned how to distill oil and separate petroleum from its waxy substances.
The introduction of paraffin wax caused a significant change in the market. Paraffin wax is a colorless, white/transparent wax that comes in solid and liquid form. It was more affordable to produce, easier to transport, and had several benefits compared to tallow candles.
Development of alternative waxes for candle making was introduced in the 1990s by blending hydrogenated vegetable oils to produce the first versions of vegetable wax.
Vegetable waxes, such as soy wax, have grown in popularity in the past decade because of their natural components.
The performance of soy wax in the candle making industry has several drawbacks. Soy waxes are less versatile than their paraffin counterpart due to problems such as shrinkage, frosting, and rejection of certain additives.
To combine the best of both worlds, soy blends were created. Our soy blends are a combination of natural soy wax and paraffin wax, and can achieve longer burning times, smoother and cleaner looks, and more efficient scent throw.
Benefits of Paraffin Wax in the Candle Industry
Paraffin wax provides manufacturers with versatility, cost efficiency, excellent scent throw, easy coloration, longer burn times, stability, and compatibility with additives. Furthermore, paraffin wax sets itself apart with its consistent nature, ensuring steadfast quality and minimal fluctuations between batches. These benefits make paraffin wax a supreme choice for candle wax production.

Ideal Qualities of Good Candle Wax

For a candle to burn evenly and avoid tunneling down the center, the wax should adhere well to the wick.
