In the world of scented candles, the choice of wax is essential. This choice not only affects the quality of the candle, but also its impact on the environment and our health. With a focus on nature and our responsibility to the planet, we dive deeper into the differences between various types of wax, including our favorite choice: sunflower wax.

Paraffin wax

  • Origin : Paraffin wax is a by-product of petroleum.
  • Burning behavior : Shorter burning time with more smoke and soot.
  • Health & Environment : May emit harmful substances when burned.
  • Price : Generally cheaper.
  • Disadvantages : Non-renewable and less environmentally friendly.

Paraffin wax, although economically beneficial, contributes to environmental pollution. This makes it a less ideal choice for environmentally conscious consumers.

Soy wax

  • Origin : Made from soybeans, a renewable resource.
  • Burning behavior : Longer burning time with less smoke/soot.
  • Environmental friendliness : Biodegradable.
  • Disadvantages : More expensive, can show tunnel formation
Soy wax is known for its environmental friendliness and long burning time, making it a popular choice for sustainable consumers. It represents a balance between quality and ecological responsibility.


    • Eco-impact : Supports bee populations.
    • Burning behavior : Natural scent, longer burning time, little smoke.
    • Health & Wellness : Purifies indoor air.
    • Disadvantages : More expensive, more limited availability.

    Beeswax, with its natural purifying properties, not only supports bee populations but also improves the quality of our environment.

    Rapeseed wax

    • Origin : Derived from rapeseed oil.
    • Burning behavior : Slow combustion.
    • Environmental friendliness : Biodegradable, non-toxic.
    • Cons : Can be more expensive.

    Canola wax, a biodegradable option, offers a slow and even burn, making for a long-lasting candle experience.

    Coconut wax

    • Properties : Luxurious, organic, environmentally friendly.
    • Burning behavior : Longer, cleaner combustion.
    • Disadvantages : More expensive, more limited availability.

    Coconut wax offers a luxurious experience with its long and clean burn, making it a premium choice for scented candle lovers.

    Sunflower wax

    • Environmental friendliness : 100% natural, biodegradable.
    • Burning behavior : Lower melting point, longer burning time, cleaner combustion.
    • Fragrance experience : Strong compatibility with fragrance oils.
    • Ethics : Vegan, ethically responsible.
    • Craftsmanship : Handmade.

    Sunflower wax represents a harmony between nature and luxury. The combination of sustainability, ethical production and superior fragrance experience makes it our favorite choice.
