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
