The Coconut Wax vs Beeswax Debate
April 27, 2023

Why we Choose Coconut Wax Every Time

We believe that the wax used in a candle is just as important as the fragrance and design, and we’re thrilled to tell you all about the benefits of using coconut wax over other waxes like beeswax. So, sit back, relax, and let’s talk wax!

First…Let’s start with the basics – what is coconut wax? Coconut wax is a natural wax made from the meat of coconuts. It’s a renewable resource that’s environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and sustainable. It’s also a great alternative to other candle waxes, such as paraffin wax, which is made from petroleum, a non-renewable resource.

Now, you might be thinking, “What about beeswax? Isn’t that a natural wax too?” And you’re absolutely right! Beeswax is another popular option for candle making. But let’s take a closer look at the benefits of using coconut wax versus beeswax.

First of all, coconut wax has a lower melting point than beeswax. This means that it has a longer burn time and can last up to 50% longer than a beeswax candle of the same size.
So, if you’re looking for a candle that will give you more bang for your buck, coconut wax is the way to go.

Secondly, coconut wax has a cleaner burn than beeswax. When beeswax burns, it produces a black residue called soot. This can be a problem for people with allergies or respiratory issues. Coconut wax, on the other hand, produces virtually no soot, making it a healthier choice for your home and the environment.

Another benefit of using coconut wax is its scent throw. Scent throw refers to how well a candle can fill a room with its fragrance. Coconut wax has a great scent throw and can hold a fragrance better than other waxes. This means that your candle will not only last longer, but it will also provide a stronger scent that will fill your home with the luxurious scent you desire.

Lastly, coconut wax is vegan-friendly! Beeswax is a by-product of honey production, which means that it’s not vegan. If you’re looking for a vegan-friendly option, coconut wax is the way to go.

Now, we know what you might be thinking – “But what about the cost? Is coconut wax more expensive than beeswax?” And the answer is yes, coconut wax is typically more expensive than beeswax. However, when you consider the benefits of using coconut wax, we believe it’s worth the investment.

At Addis VIV, we believe in using the highest quality ingredients to create the best products for our customers. We’ve found that coconut wax not only provides a superior product, but it also aligns with our values of sustainability and environmental responsibility. We take pride in knowing that our candles are not only beautiful and luxurious, but they’re also a conscious choice for our customers and the planet.

So there you have it – the benefits of using coconut wax versus beeswax. We hope that this has been helpful in understanding why Addis VIV uses coconut wax for all of our candles. If you haven’t tried a coconut wax candle yet, we highly recommend giving it a try. We’re confident that you’ll love the longer burn time, cleaner burn, and stronger scent throw that coconut wax provides.
