What are the benefits of soy wax?

The main benefit of soy wax is that it's derived from soybean oil. It is a renewable, eco-friendly alternative to paraffin wax. Because natural waxes have little impact on our environment, finished candles made from this type of wax can be marketed as a natural product.  Soy wax has a luxurious natural creamy colour and is less likely to soot than a paraffin candle if wicking is not quite right. The negatives for this wax is that the scent throw is not quite as strong as in paraffin, and wicking can be difficult in larger containers.
