Did you know that soy wax candles can be called soy wax if there is as little as 25% soy wax used? If soy wax candles are stand-alone, that is, in a pillar or votive style, they probably contain paraffin because 100% pure soy wax candles melt into a hot liquid, like oil, so they must be in a container. Paraffin makes it strong enough to stand alone. Nittany Valley Organics sells only 100% pure soy wax candles.
