Who We Are


Soytopia found its beginnings when its founder and CEO, Angela R. Akinpelu, PA-C, began to fill the niche for healthy, soy-based candles that were fragrant as well as beautiful. As a practicing health care provider, expanding the product line from earth-friendly green candles to health-conscious green bath and body products was natural.  Soytopia takes pride in producing high quality goods without the use of mineral oils, petroleum, parabens, SLS, or SLES.  For your sake, we use natural preservatives when possible.  We never use preservatives that decompose to formaldehyde.  Herbal extracts, spices, and essential oils are used to fragrance and naturally color many of our products. Our certified organic aloe vera gel and our soy waxes are made from American grown crops.  Our West African shea butter and Hawaiian raw sugar are harvested under fair trade practices.  Most importantly, your skin and hair will benefit from our natural oil products rich in vitamin A, vitamin E, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, among others!


Why Soy or Palm Wax?

palm and soy

We all want to do our part to become healthier individuals, preserve our environment, and decrease our dependence on foreign oil. Simply choosing to purchase Soytopia soy or palm wax candles instead of paraffin candles helps to accomplish each of these goals. From a health standpoint, both soy and palm wax candles produce 90% less soot than those made from paraffin. Unlike paraffin candles, no dangerous chemicals are emitted while burning. Did you know that the paraffin candles sold in most retail stores may release as many as 20 chemicals that the US Environmental Protection Agency recognizes as hazardous, cancer-causing, or toxic to our nervous and reproductive systems? Go green! Soy and palm waxes are also non-toxic, biodegradable, and made from completely renewable natural resources! The soy beans from which the wax is made are grown and harvested by the American farmer. Our palm waxes are Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified, helping to prevent deforestation of the world’s rainforests.  Most paraffin wax, on the other hand, is made from foreign oil left over from the production of gasoline and diesel fuel. Of course, you wouldn’t run a diesel engine in your home.  Why burn a candle that emits the same toxins?
