Editors: 'What's The Deal
With Soy Candles?'
Our ESSENCE beauty team gets expert advice on the
beauty of soy candles.
Q. I've heard that soy candles are supposedly good for the skin. Is that true
and what makes them different from regular candles?
I absolutely adore soy candles! On any given evening you can find me burning
one in every room of my apartment. The wax in soy candles is made from the oil
of soybeans rather than the typical paraffin wax in most candles. After you burn a
soy candle and let it cool a bit, you can use the softened wax as a moisturizer. I
caught up with Bernetta Waller, the founder of A Proud Mother Candle Company,
to tell share three more benefits of soy candles.
