Healthy, Clean & Soot Free Candles
LaPierre Soy Candles burn beautifully clean with zero petro-carbon soot. While burning other brands of candles, you may have noticed how black candle jars can get. You may also have noticed the black smoke coming off of the candle wicks.
Yuck! What is all that black soot?
Soot is the solid particle that results from incomplete combustion of carbon-containing fuels, primarily petroleum-based fuels. This is called petro-carbon soot which is not found in soy wax. Soy wax is completely petro-carbon soot free.
What does the EPA say about petro-carbon soot?
What we found out was shocking. We contacted the E.P.A. We knew if this “black film” was on our jars and on our walls it also must be in the air were breathing. Yuck! What was it?
The E.P.A reports that paraffin wax is refined gasoline, a by-product of petroleum. Shockingly, paraffin is harmful when burned, emitting 11 toxins, 2 above the excess cancer risk!
Shocked & astonished, my wife and I threw out all of our paraffin candles.
We enjoyed burning candles and knew there had to be a way to make healthy, soot free candles. This marked the beginning of our journey into the wonderful world of making candles.
