TJ Soy Candles provides you with 100% highly scented
soy candles while you are able to choose from a
variety of sizes and fragrances. They will last you
50% longer than traditional candles. You'll enjoy the
soft flickering light surrounding you while they
release fragrances naturally. Your natural soy wax
candles will burn clean and melt at a lower
temperature, burn slower and cooler (helping to better
distribute fragrance), are non-toxic, less likely to
trigger allergies and they do not release toxins,
unlike a paraffin wax. Soy candles help the
environment. They are a renewable, biodegradable, and
water-soluble resource. Soy candles do not release the
toxins that paraffin candles emit therefore soy
candles will not put you or your family's health at
risk. According to the state of California's
Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Ace of 1986), there are at least seven
toxins in paraffin candle wax, including benzene, a
carcinogen. Testing and air chamber analysis by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found the
following compounds, in significant quantity, in a
random group of over 30 candles tested: acetone,
benzene, trichloroflouromethane, carbon disulfide,
butanone, trichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride
butanone, trichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride,
carbon black (soot) particulate matter,
trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene, tolulene,
chlorobenzene, ethyl benzene, styrene, xylene, phenol,
cresol, cyclopentene, and lead. Obviously, you would
have to be a chemist to truly know what most of these
chemicals are, but according to the EPA, they pose a
health hazard with continued exposure over time. Just
within minutes of the first time you light a paraffin
candle you can see the black residue rising from the
lit wick, staining the container from which these
candles burn. Continued use of these paraffin candles
will not only further blacken the container it sits
in, it can blacken your walls, ceilings, vents, AC
units, heaters, curtains or blinds, and even carpets.
Now, imagine that same soot being inhaled into your
lungs. When you place an order with TJ Soy Candles
you will receive the highest quality products and
customer service.
