Preventing Frosting

PREVENTING FROSTING
TIPS, TECHNIQUES &
REMEDIES

Scroll down to see our tips and techniques surrounding the issue of frosting

Frosting is when a white crystalline layer forms on the surface of natural waxes such as soy. This is a natural effect of soy wax and only occurs throughout vegetable waxes. Frosting takes place when the natural wax used to make a candle tries to return to its natural state.

Frosting is an indication that you are using 100% natural soy wax and, whilst additives can be introduced to help prevent frosting, if you wish to sell natural products, this might not be the best course of action. Please keep in mind frosting will not at all affect how your candle performs.

There are several things you can try to lessen the effect of frosting, including:

  • Mixing your melted wax slowly.
  • Preheat glassware in a warm oven at no more than 100 degrees.
  • By pouring your wax at a lower temperature you can reduce the crystals/frosting forming.
  • Adding colour can make frosting more noticeable. You can add UV Inihibitor at 0.02% or 2g per kg of wax to help protect the wax from the frosting effects light has on it.
  • Cool at room temperature and keep out of draughts.
  • Place candles on a wire cooling rack.
  • Use a wax that tries to reduce frosting such as the CB Advanced Soy wax.
