Environmentally safe soy wax melts

Here is the eagerly awaited third in the series of blog posts all about the benefits of scented soy wax melts. This blog post is all about the environmentally friendly ingredients in our soy wax melts.

  • Environmentally friendly

Cosy Candles soy wax melts are environmentally friendly because the wax is soy. Soy wax is safe for the environment, pets and children too. It will not release any harmful chemicals. Soy wax is made from soybean oil, which is a vegetable oil extracted from the soybean. Soy wax is available in flake and pellet form and has an off-white, opaque appearance which almost looks creamy.


Making soy wax melts is a fun experience, but also a lot of work goes into it. Ensuring the correct temperatures are met is very important when working with soy wax. If the temperature is too high when adding in the colour and scent they will not bond correctly with the wax and the scent throw will not be strong enough. There isn’t much worse than getting excited about a new fragrance and not being able to smell it. I don’t want that for you.

Patience is a virtue! I ensure that every batch of soy wax melts have reached the exact same temperature before I add in the scent and colour. This is to ensure that all of my wax melts have the same scent throw and will reach you in the best condition possible.

Sourcing the materials for our soy wax melts was very important to me. I want to ensure that you are able to use our products without having to worry about the safety of your loved ones. All of Cosy’s ingredients are carefully, hand selected to ensure they are safe. This is important to me. I want to ensure that all of my products are safe for you to enjoy at home around your children and pets.

All of the fragrances I use have been sourced carefully and are fully compliant with IFRA (International Fragrance Association) with RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials) regulations. All fragrances and colours are not tested on animals so are cruelty free, suitable for vegans/vegetarians and paraben free. This makes using our soy wax melts at home around your children and pets perfectly safe.

In conclusion our soy wax melts are environmentally safe. Thanks for reading, and don't forget to pop back next week for the next instalment of "What are the benefits of scented soy wax melts?"
