In 1994, Indiana soybean farmers and Purdue University students introduced soy crayons to the marketplace through the Student Soybean Innovation Competition.
Not merely a substitute for petroleum-oil-based wax crayons, soybean crayons perform better. Their colors are brighter and page strokes are smoother. With their unique soybean oil formulation, soybean crayons are both nontoxic and environmentally friendly. They include no paraffin wax and are made from 100% renewable resources. Look for them in art stores marketed under the Prang brand.
