Organic Soy: The Myth
This is the shortest article we have here, but we thought it deserved a little attention since we are asked this question often. What about organic or all-natural soy? In 2008 85% of US grown soy was genetically modified, now 98% of soy wax has been genetically modified (GMO) or mixed with GMO soy. It is argued that the tiny remaining 2% isn't used for candle making either. There are no regulations for what candle makers have to put on their labels including what claims they can make. It is completely legal for a candle company to put "all-natural" or even "organic soy" on their labels when in fact it's not possible.
