Kertavax – Vax í kertagerð – Paraffinvax – perlur 1 kg
|Melting point 56-58 gr./ lozenges|
Paraffin wax is one of the most versatile and most common waxes used today.
It comes in many different melt points, appropriate for many different applications,
from votives to pillars to containers.
Most of the commercially available candles you buy in stores today are made with paraffin.
It is not universally embraced these days, however. Paraffin wax is a by-product of the crude
oil refinement process, and natural or green-minded folks often label it as bad just because
it is related to petroleum. However, just because it is related to petroleum doesn’t automatically
make it toxic. And in a way, by using the by-products of the oil refining process, you’re actually
using parts of the oil that would otherwise be discarded.
