Where did the name Bean Street come from? Well, soy(bean) wax candles were our first product here at the Market, so our name is kind of an homage to our roots. We also like to use soy wax in our bath and body products too, when we can. Why soy? There are many benefits to using soy wax over traditional paraffin wax. Soy wax is made from hydrogenated soybean oil, a renewable resource (paraffin wax is a petroleum product). Soy candles burn cleaner, so no sooty mess on your walls or furniture. Soy wax has a lower melting point than paraffin, which allows us to make wonderful products like our romantic massage candle! Soy candles also "throw" scent very well, resulting in a stronger fragrance when you burn your candle. And finally, when we use and you buy soybean products instead of paraffin, we are all supporting American farmers who produce soybeans, and American jobs!
So that's the story of the Bean Street name, and we're sticking to it! :) Thanks for stopping by!
