“Our mission is to enhance your everyday by engaging your senses”
SoyLites is a business with heart and soul. Bringing together passion for nature-friendly products and an innovative flair, we create and manufacture a range of natural soy based aromatherapy body candles, soy body balms and other related products. SoyLites is the original soy candle brand in South Africa and is owned and run by life-partners Nicole Antonie and Colin Skelton, in Johannesburg.
Our products and fragrances intend to realise revitalising benefits in the context of a busy, urban environment. We combine various essential oils, each with their own unique qualities, creating a range of exotic blends designed to positively influence your mood and enrich your day. Our product range of aromatherapy essential oil blends are created to enliven your senses and appeal to every preference, leaving you, and your home, smelling amazing.
SoyLites soy candles are, however, so much more than just a quality aromatic treat for you and your home. Our natural soy candles not only smell amazing and burn beautifully, but are also effective and nourishing full body products. SoyLites body candles are both versatile, long lasting aromatherapy candles and non-greasy moisturising products that keep your skin supple and gives it a healthy glow.
As South Africa’s original and market leading soy candle manufacturers, we source only the finest quality natural ingredients. One aspect that sets us apart is the superior quality of our raw materials (see quality info here) and our cosmetic grade benefits. We do not compromise the quality of our products with any hidden additives such as chemicals, preservatives or petroleum derivatives. Our vision of contributing towards innovative solutions and sustainable products, in light of environmental concerns, is core to our business ethic. We do not use any raw materials that contribute to the deforestation of the Amazon and our soy is guaranteed to contain no genetically modified materials.
We manufacture and primarily wholesale our products, however our business model includes customised projects, corporate gifts and online retail. We also have a retail outlet at 27 Boxes in Melville, called Urban Green, which is a collaboration with a friend company called Green Grass. Our export sales are also increasing and we currently export to Denmark, Norway, Japan, UK and Nigeria. We remain grateful to all those who have supported us over the years and who continue to do so.
SoyLites take pride in innovating eco-authentic products that your skin will love, while engaging your mind, body and spirit.
