Wondering about the benefits of Pure Placid's Ukraine Soy Candle and how you can help the people in Ukraine? Keep reading for more information.
The conflict in the Ukraine has displaced over 10 million Ukrainian citizens. As a result, businesses around the country are selling handcrafted goods to raise awareness of the situation.
These specialty items can help to raise much-needed funds for the cause to help the displaced people of Ukraine caught up in turmoil.
1. Soy Wax is Non-Toxic
One of the most significant benefits of a soy candle is its non-toxic properties. Unlike cheaper paraffin and synthetic wax candles, soy-based candle wax does not release toxic fumes and chemicals into the air. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde can cause allergies and even asthma attacks over a prolonged period.
Plant-based materials are used to make natural soy candles. While paraffin wax candles are usually made with a petroleum-based by-product. Paraffin candles can release carcinogens into the air when lit, but a soy candle burns without releasing any harmful chemicals.
Stand with Ukraine and breathe easier, knowing you are supporting a good cause while keeping the air fresher.
2. Soy Wax is Vegan
Beeswax candles are organic, but they are not considered vegan since they are made from animal products. The wax is extruded from beehives as a by-product of the honey-making process.
Beeswax does not contain any animal or fleshy parts of the insect, but it is excreted by bees to build their hives. Therefore it is primarily considered an animal product. The methods for harvesting beeswax also come into question and jeopardize its vegan status. Bees are often exploited to make these products.As a result, many bees die due to unethical harvesting practices.
Soy is 100% vegan. It is only made from soybean oil and derived from plants. So, there is no conflict of interest when choosing a soy candle over a beeswax candle. Many prefer the benefits of soy candles over beeswax candles because they know that no animals were potentially harmed during the process of making them.
With your Ukraine Soy Candle, you'll know it is cruelty-free and animal friendly.
3. Soy Candles Burn Cleaner
Are you familiar with that strong smoky smell that comes right after blowing out a candle? After the flame has been extinguished small particles of soot or afterburn rise from the wick of your candle. Although you can't see these particles, they can coat the soft surfaces in your home in soot particulates over time.
Soot particles can cling to curtains, sofas, rugs, and more. It can make your home appear dingy. The sooty smell can also detract from the true scent of your soy candle.
For a cleaner, greener burning candle, natural soy candles don't have a sooty causing burn, so there's no worrying about unsightly soot filling your environment and permeating into your fabrics. Also, there's nothing artificial in our soy candles, so there are no artificial by-products.
With a cleaner burning candle, you'll also enjoy your soy candle's most pure scent without chemical additives interfering. Your Ukraine Soy Candle from Pure Placid will reflect the sweetness and purity of its people.
3. Soy Wax is Renewable and Biodegradable
The soy-based candle wax used to make soy candles comes from soybeans. Soybeans are a renewable crop, meaning they are capable of replanting many times without the concern that their supply will become depleted. Soybeans are a plentiful crop with a relatively short growing period.
Soy candles are also biodegradable. So if any wax accidentally spills, there's no concern for toxic or harmful chemicals around children and pets. Wipe it up clean with a bit of mild soap and water.
Soybeans naturally break down and biodegrade in landfills, unlike synthetic and unnatural materials that don't break down over time.
Standing up for your beliefs and the rights of others is a huge part of who you are as a human. Therefore, your candles should meet the same uncompromising standards.
A soy candle is a quality and premium choice product you can feel good about buying. And when your candle purchase helps those in need, you'll feel like you're making a difference in the world whenever you light it.
