Soy wax myth: "Soy wax is 100% soot free"

Many soy wax candle manufacturers claim that their candles are 100% soot free. Unfortunately, anything that burns releases a minimal amount of hydrocarbons (soot), though this can be greatly reduced by a well-made candle. Using the right wick (no metal!) and keeping it trimmed will help reduce soot. Candle dyes, additives and synthetic fragrances are the primary factors that increase soot and should be avoided (i.e. a soy wax candle made with dyes & perfumes will create more soot than one without those unnecessary ingredients).

See our Burning Tips for more information on how to get the most out of your candle.
