Default What's the difference between waxes?

i've read soy wax is supposed to be less toxic, and flouro wax is faster(?) but might give off a toxic fume. what about hydrocarbon wax, etc?

i understand the temp ranges for hot, cold, all-temp but am completely baffled by the other things above.

EDIT: FAQ found from other thread.

Soy...I believe its more the fact that soy is natural. Not too sure.

Flouro wax works better when the snow is wet-ish.
