100% Soy, 100% Pawesome

SoyCat Candles was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team, Dayna and Wayne Ganiko. Inspired by their own cat, Carlton S. Fangerson, PhD., Dayna and Wayne set out to make 100% soy wax candles blended with essential oils – Earth, Animal, and Human friendly! All SoyCat products are handcrafted in Long Beach, CA.

We partner directly with the spcaLA - a portion of every SoyCat Candle purchase goes to helping our furry friends find forever homes.

Care instructions

Candles should always be stored in a cool dry place. Never burn candles unattended. For best results, the first time you burn your candle, allow the wax to melt all the way to the edges of the glass (approximately 4 hours). Recommended burn time is 4 hours per sessions. Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each use. Candle container will be hot when candle is lit - allow container to cool before touching.

Our candles are all natural and the jars are reusable! Please take care to wash them out completely when candle is finished. Re-use for storage of food and small bits, craft projects, and anything else you desire!

Sizing details

Our 8 oz (Cat Size) Candles are approximately 3.5 in (H) x 3 in (W) x 3 in (D). They are filled with 100% soy wax and burn for up to 60 hours.

Our 4 oz (Kitten Size) Candles are approximately 2 in (H) x 3 in (W) x 3 in (D). They are filled with 100% soy wax and burn for up to 25 hours.

Our Wax Melts include 6 soy wax melt blocks, which in total, lasts up to 96 hours.

Soy Wax Frosting

Frosting is a natural characteristic of soy, and is part of the soy experience! It is not a flaw, and it is strictly unique to pure soy candles. Often times it is called the "bloom." It is a way that a customer can tell if their candle is really made with pure, all-natural soy wax. Frosting does not effect the scent or performance of the candle. You can safely burn a candle with a bloom without worry.

Frosting is a particular crystal growth of vegetable oils. It will cause the candle to look dry, which is simply a characteristic of that crystal structure. It can also add an extra touch of the rustic look and feel of your candle.

Gift wrapping and packaging

There is currently no gift wrapping or packaging available, however you can purchase customizable gift tags for your candles in the shop.
