The soy wax used by Waterlily h o m e is produced using 100% pure, natural soybean oil from soybeans.
Soy Wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.
The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature.
Soy waxes are manufactured from non-petroleum renewable resources and are produced with consideration and care for the environment. The 100% soy wax in the Waterlily h o m e range is Biodegradable and free of Pesticides and Herbicides.
