But how does it compare to the industry standard for vegetable waxes?
Compared to soy wax, our coconut apricot wax:
- does not have the deforestation impact that soy wax does
- has better scent throw than soy wax
- is cleaner burning than soy wax

- returns to a clean smooth surface after each burn compared to soy wax (soy wax is rough & bumpy after each burn)

SOY WAX AND DEFORESTATION
Soy grown on an industrial scale has a multitude of negative environmental and socio-economic impacts, one of the largest being deforestation, soil erosion and the loss of diverse habitats around the world. The largest expansion of soy production has been in South America and it’s already contributed to deforestation and change in many important habitats such as the Amazon and Cerrado. Other areas at risk include the Atlantic Forest, the Chiquitano Dry Forest, the Gran Chaco, the Pampas in Argentina, the North American prairies and the Uruguayan Campos.
Remember, natural doesn’t mean sustainable - not if it’s grown in monocultures on cut down rain-forests on continually decreasing quality soil and at the expense of global water tables.
