Ecosoya Advanced Container Blend is simply the best soy container wax on the market today. It's designed to eliminate 'frosting', surface colour changing and imperfections on the surface. It produces a smooth, creamy appearance and can be poured over a wider range of temperatures with good results. It has a very long shelf-life, with candles over 5 years old still stable. This is one of the big differences between Ecosoya soy wax and other soy waxes on the market. Ecosoya is for the candle manufacturer that wants the best result and peace of mind to know their candle will be stable and last. Other cheaper soy waxes available are perhaps better suited to the home hobbyist. Most of the large manufacturers use this wax and this is the wax we recommend.
Determining Optimal Melting and Pouring Temperatures
You should first melt the wax up to and between 70 to 80 degrees Celsius. This will also vary depending on your pouring temperature. The wax has a pouring temperature between 50 and 70 degrees Celsius. We suggest doing a few small tests, pouring in 5 degree increments starting with 50 degrees Celsius. This way you will be able to work out what is working best for the room and conditions you are in. You should add any fragrance and colour about 10 degrees hotter than what you are planning to pour at and gently stir everything together. We recommend a fragrance loading between 8 and 10%. The best way to achieve this is to add the fragrance by weight. Therefore, for every 100 grams of wax, we recommend using between 8 and 10 grams of fragrance. See below for essential oils.
Please note: Whilst some essential oils may perform reasonably in candles, we do not recommend their use. The flashpoint, especially in citrus-type essential oils, is quite low and with an ignition source a candle can easily catch fire. Essential oils do tend to work quite well in 'melts' whereby the heat source is coming from the tealight and not from the direct flame of the wick. For candle making we recommend using fragrance oils only as they are much safer and designed for candles with a much larger variety. All essential oils due to their raw nature may discolour the wax. If essential oils are to be used in a candle application, please test in small quantities first and increase the ratio gradually to no more than 6%, being mindful of the high flammability of the raw material. As advised before, we do not recommend the use of essential oils in candles.
The wax will be supplied in pellet form not flaked.
By far the best wax on the market! Easy to work with, consistent in the final product. Great scent throw, cold or hot! No soy scent after burn. Smooth clean finish. Ecstatic to see CB-Advanced soy wax back!
I normally buy CB135 but tried this one and ots just as good. I use mine in Massage Candles, Scented Candles & Melts as well as Lotions, Balms etc in my business.. My products look great because of this product. Melt temp between Low - Med & pour temp at low eg; 25-30°c - i dont use a thermometer as i dont have one so i go by feel, if i can comfortably hold the plastic pyrex jug then i know its safe to pour. Great scent throw in all my products.
By the best wax i have used. I recently tried something else and i couldn't wait to get back to it.
Best wax on the market. I won't purchase from anywhere else!!!
I love this wax. It's creamy and generally has a beautiful silky smooth appearance on the candle surface. It throws well, hot & cold. It can be a bit quirky at times - up here in the tropics at least - but through testing (lots and lots of testing) I now adjust my melt/pour temps when it's necessary and try to keep an ambient temp inside of between 21-23 degrees Celsius when curing.
I have tried other waxes however I keep coming back to this one, it is the best for sure - again you need to test, test and test to get the perfect result but in the end you won't be disappointed. :)
Great Wax, but no matter what I try - it lifts away from the glass in the small jars. Big jars are fine. Only small. But overall, very easy to use and a lovely creamy testure.
This wax is fantastic for melts. Great hot and cold scent throw. I have put an unburnt melt in the bathroom and everytime i go in the smell is strong. Highly recommended
Great. Easy to use
We love this Soy wax, its very easy to work with & always gives amazing results.
Amazing wax the best if your selling to stores and want a stable reliable wax that wont change over time.
Best wax on the market for a stable, professional looking scented candle. The trick is to not heat it above 70 degrees and to pour at 50 degrees.
