How Soy Candles Are Created
Ever wonder how we create our candles at Kristin & Company? It’s as simple as four steps!
1. Source the Soy
The soy that we use at Kristin & Company is 100% sourced from farmers in the U.S. It’s important to us to support our nation’s economy, plus, cutting down on overseas shipments reduces our carbon footprint and helps global sustainability.
The soy wax flakes that we use in our candles are made from the oil of soybeans. The oil is extracted from soybeans and then hydrogenated to make the extract more solid and turn them into soy flakes.
2. Melt & Mix
The soy flakes are melted then blended with our fine fragrances and mixed thoroughly to ensure beautiful scent throw throughout the life of your candle.
3. Fill Jars
The mixture of soy and scent then gets hand poured into 8oz or 16oz jars by one of our employees in Standish, MI. Once the soy is poured, we let it sit to cool and set.
4. Package Orders and Ship
Once the wax has hardened, the candle is ready to go! We simply add the label and lid and then ship it to its destination.
