Soy wax is a natural product and is created from the beans of the soy plant and other natural botanical ingredients. Candles made from soy wax naturally have a frosting throughout and often times, on the surface. Frosting on soy candles does not affect the burn of the candle. SWCC does not use additives to prevent these natural characteristics. After each session you may notice a “ring” around the top of the candle. This is perfectly normal and does not, in any way, affect the candles performance.
