What is natural wax?
A natural wax is a type of wax which is made from a natural source. The most popular natural wax for candle makers is soy wax.
Vegetable wax is made by hydrogenating vegetable oil such as soya bean oil or rapeseed oil, to raise their melt point where they are solid at room temperature.
Another natural wax is beeswax, made from the honey bee, perhaps the most natural and traditional wax there is, but not so vegan friendly like our other waxes.
The main benefit of natural wax is it’s a renewable, eco-friendly alternative to paraffin wax. Because natural waxes have little impact on our environment, finished candles made from this type of wax can be marketed as a natural product.
