Fragrance throw of Rapeseed & Coconut Wax compared to Soy Wax. - All Said & Done

Fragrance throw of Rapeseed & Coconut Wax compared to Soy Wax.

When starting my business I looked into the different types of waxes available on the market. I wanted something that performed as well as soy but wasn't soy. Due to allergies in the family I wanted something that didn't affect the health of those around me. I originally went with coconut wax but I found it a little temperamental with different fragrances and seemed to need a higher fragrance ratio. This for me made it a more expensive product to make. Rapeseed & Coconut wax was a relatively new wax to the market and ticked a lot of the boxes I was looking for.
Here are some of the benefits I found with Rapeseed & Coconut compared to Soy wax.


Renewable resources: Both rapeseed and coconut are derived from readily renewable crops, addressing concerns about deforestation associated with unsustainable soy production.
European origin: Rapeseed and coconut wax often come from Europe, where stricter regulations can potentially minimize environmental impact compared to some soy sources.


Burn Characteristics:

Cleaner burn: This blend generally produces less soot than soy wax, leading to cleaner indoor air and potentially better respiratory health. A big positive factor for me in deciding on wax.

Longer burn time: These waxes tend to burn slower than soy, offering extended burn time and potentially better value for money.

Improved fragrance throw: The combined wax releases fragrance more effectively, providing a stronger and more consistent scent experience compared to soy.

Additional benefits:

Vegan and natural: Both rapeseed and coconut wax are naturally derived and considered vegan, appealing to those with specific dietary or ethical preferences.

Biodegradable: Both waxes decompose naturally over time, contributing positively to the environment.

Compared to Individual Waxes:

This blend offers a good balance between the pros and cons of both separate forms of rapeseed and coconut wax:

Stronger fragrance throw than rapeseed wax alone.

More consistent scent release than pure coconut wax.

Less potential for overpowering initial scent compared to pure coconut wax.

While both rapeseed and coconut wax offer individual benefits over soy, a combined blend can capitalize on the strengths of both, providing a more sustainable, cleaner burning, and enjoyable candle experience.
