At Maverick, our Soy wax is hand-poured in small batches to ensure that each candle is of the best quality and scent - but why do we use Soy wax?
There are lots of different types of wax, many of which are also vegan and make great candles. Soy wax is a vegetable wax which is derived from soybeans. We prefer it because:
It burns longer - you can get nearly double the burn time from soy candles
It is a carbon neutral product - it doesn’t release fragrant chemicals to distort your fragrance distribution
It is a renewable resource, we always ensure that our suppliers are sustainably sourced
You get a cleaner burn and it produces much less soot than some other wax types, leaving you with a clean burn
It doesn’t get as hot as other waxes and it’s easier to clean off of surfaces
