Soy has definitely hit the big time. Very few of us can say we’ve been featured in celebrity chef recipes or touched the lips of a male supermodel. But soy has never forgotten where it came from- the soybean. It still lives a humble existence beyond the fame, appearing in our very own soy candles. Soy credits much of its fame to its natural talents- the ability to burn cooler, cleaner and longer than most candles. But that admirers is just the tip of the lead-free wick.
Here’s the buzz behind soy–
1. Okay, let’s not kid ourselves, the soybean IS a magical fruit. It’s one of nature’s most versatile inventions. Beyond food and beauty products, the soybean gives us Zum Glows that are non-toxic, biodegradable and – we don’t recommend acquiring the taste – even edible. Soybeans make for soy wax candles that leave no soot marks around the home and no carcinogens to breathe.
2. Soy wax keeps its cool. Cool begets cleaner, cool begets longer. The result is a candle to enjoy over a crazy-long period of time. 30 straight hours for original Glows.
3. Soy wax lives an alternative lifestyle. It’s a double agent, providing moisturizing properties on the side. Simply blow out your Zum Glow and dab a little wherever it’s a little dry. Try that with paraffin wax – well, don’t try that. It’s a bad, bad, bad idea.
If you never look at soy the same way again, we’ve done our job.
