I know in New Zealand that soy or soy wax is not an issue for most people. In fact most vegetarians/vegans I know look to soy as their main source of alternative protein. I suspect it is similar in Aussie and perhaps the UK - though not entirely sure. Soy milk is regularly sold as a dairy alternative in both coffee shops and supermarkets. There has been in increase in alternative milks over the past decade, including almond, coconut, oat etc, but soy remains the main alternative.For those that want to use Soy and Soy Wax.
There are Many people that will not use anything with Soy.
There are also many people that see the word WAX and don't want that in soap either.
just an fyi.
I do recall when I was in the USA some 10 years ago, it was very hard to find soy milk ( my son who was only a year old at the time is allergic to dairy and nuts) and there was an over-abundance of nut milks which were unsuitable ( he's even MORE allergic to nuts that dairy) - perhaps reflecting the anti-soy movement in the USA.
However, this thread is for people to discuss the use of SW in soap, not whether or not people like it or not.
