Some questions about soy candles......

Posted on 3 January, 2013 at 15:40
Ever wonder why your soy candle looks like it has frosting on the top?  What about the bubble on the sides of the glass?  What about all those companies that say "soot free"?    Well, here are some answers!
1) Why DO soy candles start to change color and get a white "frosting" as they age? 
Answer:  This is actually a GOOD thing.  This is proof that the candle is made with real vegetable oils and not petroleum or synthetics.  It is just a natural occurance that doesn't affect the quality of the candle in the least bit.
2) What's up with the weird look on the sides of the glass? 
Answer:  This is the oil separating from the sides of the glass.  This is more common during the cold months.  It is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the quality of the candle.
3) So many companies claim their candles are "soot free" and  "smoke free", why don't Vance Family Soy Candles claim that?
ANSWER: Because  then we wouldn't be telling the truth.  In order to burn a candle, SOMETHING MUST BE BURNED.  When burning something, SOOT WILL HAPPEN.  Although soy candles (and especially our candles since we don't use petroleum in our scents either), and cottom wicks, let off  LESS soot than petroleum candles (parraffin), we don't claim things that aren't true.
Have any other questions?  We'd love to answer them!
