THE JOY OF SOY

IN 1996, SOY WAX WAS INVENTED BY A GROUP OF COLLEGE STUDENTS AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY. THE STUDENTS HAD TO DEVELOP A BIRTHDAY CANDLE USING A RENEWABLE SOURCE.  THEY CHOSE SOYBEAN OIL.  THE STUDENTS FIGURED OUT HOW TO SOLIDIFY SOYBEAN OIL AND WON FIRST PLACE IN A COMPETITION SPONSORED BY THE INDIANA SOYBEAN DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL AND PURDUE UNIVERSITY'S DEPARTMENT OF AGRONOMY.

SOY WAX'S COUNTERPART, PARAFFIN, IS PRODUCED BY PETROLEUM OIL,

A REFINED GASOLINE PRODUCT.

SOY HAS NO SOOT WHILE BURNING; SO NO BLACKENED WALLS.

SOY WAX IS NON TOXIC, BIO-DEGRADEABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND RENEWABLE, THUS BEING VERY ECO FRIENDLY.

SOY PROVIDES AN EVEN BURN, WHILE PROVIDING A LONGER BURN TIME THAN PARAFFIN WAX.

EASY SOAP AND WATER CLEAN UP.
