What Makes Our Products Better Than The Rest?


What is Soy Wax Anyway?

Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. After harvesting, the beans are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is then extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated.

The hydrogenation process converts some of the fatty acids in the oil from unsaturated to saturated. This process dramatically alters the melting point of the oil, making it a solid at room temperature. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.
The U.S. grows the vast majority of the world’s soy beans, primarily in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana.

What are the benefits of Soy Wax??

Soy’s greatest advantage is that it is completely renewable. While the global reserves of oil shrink and paraffin prices increase, the only limit to the soy supply is how much we choose to grow. The soy that is used in our candles today was likely in the ground less than a year ago. And chances are that same field is growing more soy for the candles to be made in the future.

In addition to sustainability, a well-made soy candle will burn cleanly and slowly. The soy that we use are eco-friendly, renewable, American grown, sustainable and carbon neutral.


Made In USA

Cucamonga Valley Candle Company is proud that ALL candles, lotions and soaps are 100% made with USA made materials! All Cucamonga Valley Candle candles are made in the USA.

The soy wax we use in our candles come from soy beans that are grown by local farmers in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and Indiana.

The glass containers we use come from New York and Kentucky.

The wicks are made from 100% US grown cotton that is woven into a flat braid wick with a paper fiber in turn helps in increased rigidity, decreased mushrooming, soot and smoke.
