Soy-Long To Paraffin; The Black-Residue from Your Paraffin Candles is Forming on your Blinds, Walls, Ceilings, and More than Likely, Your Lungs

Share Article

Zionsville, Indiana- "That black soot from paraffin candles that forms on your blinds, walls, and ceilings is more than likely also going into your lungs," explains Chris Anderson, founder of Zionsville Candle Company. Soy Candles are a great alternative.

What started as an "add-on" product for ESC Promotions, a nation-wide fundraising company, has become a life-passion for Chris and Marnie Anderson, founders of Indiana-based Zionsville Candle Company.

"I knew absolutely nothing about candles, except for the little paraffin wax candles that burn my fingers when I'm getting a birthday cake ready" explained Chris Anderson, founder of Zionsville, Indiana based Zionsville Candle Company. "We've been getting alot of media attention from our soy-bean based candle products. People are amazed out how clean they burn. But the real deal came when an entire shelf-load of burning soy candles came crashing down on my legs. My employees came running from the noise, and all I could think was- great, their goes that test batch. But when my employees were asking 'Are you O.K.?' and I realized I had wax all over my legs, did I realize just how safe the soy is! I had NO burns!!!" "We've test thousands of candles in our store, and haven't had a SINGLE negative complaint from customers, employees, or family members. The soy is very clean. It leaves almost NO residue."

Once the Indiana couple started their new company, they began realizing all the benefits of using soy. "Not only does it benefit the farmers, but soy is used in so many useful products from wax to ink. It's in everything!"

Soy wax is gaining popularity for its far-reaching benfits, for uses from energy to food to printing to black-top covering! Anderson exclaimed, "I bet the next 20 years will prove that Soy Beans will provide hundreds, if not thousands, of useful alternatives to current fossil fuel and non-recycleable products!"
